Talk around Hartford is that the old Hilson house is haunted. Its new owner, Rebecca Hilson, doesn’t believe that. She’s more concerned with the decades of junk that has accumulated and for which she is now responsible. She doesn’t know what to do with any of it or even how to approach sorting through it all.
Her new neighbor, Andrew Lately, is happy to offer some words of wisdom and the help of his grandson, Charlie, to get her started. Charlie makes it clear right away that he is interested in more than helping Rebecca move boxes. She doesn’t know if she can return those feelings. In fact, recent events have made her question her ability to feel much of anything.
Will Charlie’s patience pay off or will it take a real ghost to help Rebecca understand the nature of love.


When Rebecca’s Aunt Rose passed away almost a year ago she never imagined herself living in the home that was left to her.  She was told by her parents that it was time to leave the nest and at her age she needed to be on her own.  Rebecca started the task of cleaning and organizing when she heard a noise.  Could it be the rumored ghost or just her imagination.  She chalked it up to her imagination, until the day she came home to a man in her house.

Rebecca soon learned the man was Andrew.  A elderly and confused man from just a few door down the street.  Andrew turned out to be a great friend and story teller.  Rebecca never felt alone with Andrew, especially after he introduced her to his grandson Charlie.

I LOVED this story.  I was happy to see a forming relationship between Rebecca and Charlie.  I enjoyed the friendship between Rebecca and Andrew.  The friendship reminded me of the movie The Holiday.  I liked the way they had a friendship first and it was just a sweet story.  If you are looking for a love story without the R rating this is a great read.  I highly recommend.  But, if you are looking at this book for just a ghost story you will not be getting what you think, but I do feel you should give this book a chance, I truly enjoyed the read.

Rating 4.5
