GIVEAWAY! Better Homes and Hauntings by Molly Harper

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18755773-better-homes-and-hauntings 


Author of the beloved Half Moon Hollow series of vampire romances (Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs), Molly Harper has created a standalone paranormal romance in which a dilapidated haunted house could bring star-crossed lovers together—if it doesn’t kill them first!

When Nina Linden is hired to landscape a private island off the New England coast, she sees it as her chance to rebuild her failing business after being cheated by her unscrupulous ex. She never expects that her new client, software mogul Deacon Whitney, would see more in her than just a talented gardener. Deacon has paid top dollar to the crews he’s hired to renovate the desolate Whitney estate—he had to, because the bumps, thumps, and unexplained sightings of ghostly figures in nineteenth-century dress are driving workers away faster than he can say “Boo.”

But Nina shows no signs of being scared away, even as she experiences some unnerving apparitions herself. And as the two of them work closely together to restore the mansion’s faded glory, Deacon realizes that he’s found someone who doesn’t seem to like his fortune more than himself—while Nina may have finally found the one man she can trust with her bruised and battered heart.

But something on the island doesn’t believe in true love…and if Nina and Deacon can’t figure out how to put these angry spirits to rest, their own love doesn’t stand a ghost of a chance.

  1. Not a haunted house, but I've been in a haunted hotel! Okay, it's just rumored to be haunted, but it still gave me the creeps.

  2. When I was younger (as a curious kid), I've been in one and it was creepy. I won't go in another ever again.

  5. Oh this is on my WL so thank you for the giveaway!
    I have been in a haunted house! I've been in several but the one that pretty much everyone knows FOR SURE is haunted is one that author Gregg Olsen invited me and several others to for a lunch. It's closed to the public because of how haunted and dangerous it is. The basement is so haunted we weren't allowed down there because it's a very bad ghost! But we toured the rest. In one was a woman and she gave me really bad vertigo when I was in that room. I have had many 'ghost' experiences but that's one where there were people right there with me and knew what was happening.

  8. My grandparents' house was haunted and my sister and I spent summers there. I've also been in a couple other haunted houses. My sister calls me a witch because strange things happen to me involving the paranormal. :)

  9. I worked at a "haunted house" for one whole October way back when. Does that count?

  10. I've been in homes that were purported to be haunted.. but I think they were just old and creaky. I do know that after my sister in law died the atmosphere and feeling of my brother's house change dramatically. She was the only one who could keep him from saving tons of old papers and unread junk mail.

    Once she was gone the place deteriorated and you could just feel her presence trying to make him clean up.

  12. I need to start this series. It sounds like a hoot to read.

    As for haunted houses... erm, the Halloween ones. And I don't *think* I've been in a haunted house, or at least I didn't hear anything. But I might have been. ;D

    1. And love haunted houses during Halloween...the cheesier, the better. Also, I stayed in a haunted officer's quarter on my wedding night (the wedding was at the historic fort)...exciting things happened, but nothing to do with ghosts! ;)

  14. When I was younger and more adventurous, I probably would have. But now that I am older, I prefer peace and quiet.

  15. I have been on numerous haunted tours of homes and such, but I have never experienced ANYTHING. And YES I would go into one!!!

  16. I've been on tours of several houses and castles reputed to be haunted (in Britain) and not seen anything. But I had a strange experience at my in-laws' house years ago. I was alone in the house and upstairs, when I heard faint music and laughter coming from downstairs. The music was old -- probably 1920s or 30s. I thought, "Oh, my in-laws must have come back and turned on the television." So I went downstairs. By the time I reached the bottom of the stairs, the noises were gone -- and there was still no one home. When I mentioned it to my MIL, she wasn't surprised. Apparently my brother-in-law had once had a similar experience. So... not ghosts, necessarily, since as far as we know no-one had ever died in the house, but some sort of echo from the past. It wasn't a scary experience at all, though a little eerie when I realized that there was no one there.

  18. I've only been to the Halloween Haunted Houses, and very rarely. I could see going to a house rumored to be truly haunted, but I don't know that I could stay the night.
