Have you ever wondered what it would be like to share your home with an unearthly spirit who can’t find closure? Living on the edge of a cemetery with souls dating back to the 1700s would be enough to spook anyone, but Naomi finds it oddly romantic, and becomes inspired to write her next novel. Why not, when her muse, Maggie, calls to her from beyond her own window?

After all, the story couldn't possibly be as complicated as Naomi's own love life. Torn between Ryan, the mysterious and seemingly perfect man she just started dating, and Bryce, the sexy single dad who recently moved in next door, Naomi must navigate the tangled web of dating—all while trying to solve the mystery of Maggie's death.

When things turn dangerous, Naomi quickly learns whom she can trust and, more importantly, whom she can’t. Will she be able to write Maggie’s story and finally give Maggie the peace she deserves?

Excerpt:

Sky high cliffs, the serene Hudson River, and blue skies

surrounded them. Seagulls screeched overhead as they made their

way up the wide, winding path. Maggie jumped out of the way as

a cyclist whizzed past.

“Oh!”

He grabbed her waist, holding her tight. “You need to watch

out for those guys. They can be relentless around here.”

Didn’t she know it. The local roads were dominated by the

cyclists in the warm weather. More than once in the past few

weeks, Maggie had to pull over to the side of the road to allow

them to pass.

“This is nice.” Maggie followed the sound of the gulls’ cries

overhead. Not a cloud in the sky.

“It is, but then again, anything would be nice with you by

my side.”

“Thanks.” She snuggled her head against his shoulder for a

moment as they walked hand in hand further up the path.

Walking in a companionable silence, Maggie was happy. This

was nice, being here with him.

“Would you look at that?” He pointed up toward the edge of

the cliff. Maggie could just about make out the tiny figures of two

people. She swayed slightly. They had to be nuts to get that close

to the edge. They had to be nuts period.

“Yeah, well if you ask me, they’re crazy.”

“Crazy? How do you figure?” His eyes bore into hers.

“Going way up there? They must have a death wish.” Maggie

nearly shivered even though the temperature was mild.

He stopped her, placing his hands on her shoulders. “You’re

afraid of heights?”

“No, don’t be ridiculous.”

“You are, aren’t you?” His eyes lit up.

“If I’m not mistaken, it seems as if you’re deriving some kind

of sick pleasure from this,” Maggie mumbled, head down.

“No, honey. No.” He wrapped his arms around her as more

cyclists scurried by. “I didn’t mean to react that way. It’s just that

in my eyes you’re perfect. I didn’t imagine you’d have a fear in

the world.”

If only he knew. She had plenty of fears, but Maggie figured

most people did.

“Really? That’s nice of you to say. Untrue, but nice.”

“Come on. Say, what’s your greatest fear? Top fear of all

time?”

Strange turn in conversation. “Where are you going with this

line of questioning?”

He blew out a hearty chuckle. “Come on, it’s all in good fun.

I’m just trying to get to know you.”

“Okay. Heights. My top fear is heights.” She wished to change

the subject but wondered what his own fears were now that the

topic was on the table.

“What about you? What are you afraid of?”

“I guess it would be drowning.” Yes, drowning was also high

on her list.

He was uncharacteristically quiet. Now would be a good time

to lighten the mood.

“Enough of this macabre talk. Back to the beautiful day before

us.” Maggie stepped away from him to spread her arms wide. His

face remained serious.

“Yes, it would be drowning.”

A dark look passed over his brown eyes. He had already

mentioned the fact.

“Okay. Can we move on? Maybe talk about something else?”

“Since you’re the one who brought it up, I guess so.”

“I didn’t…” He was the one who had pointed out the hikers

up high on the cliff.

“Yes, you actually did. But I suppose that’s neither here nor

there. I never learned how to swim, did you know that?”

“No, I didn’t.” Maggie took a step away from his reach. She

felt uncomfortable with the vibe he was creating. More than

anything, Maggie wished he would just stop talking about his

fears, her fears.

“Can you imagine that? Being raised without swimming

lessons?”

Maggie could almost taste the hostility that was radiating off

him. Someone had unresolved issues from his childhood, it seemed.

Now wasn’t the time to inquire about his past, though. Maggie

slipped her hands into her light sweatshirt, wondering if it was

time they should be heading back.

“It’s getting late. What do you say we head back?”

It was as if a switch had been flipped. There was no other

way to describe it. As suddenly as his mood had become dark and

brooding, he was now light and charming once more.

“What? And miss out on sharing this spectacular day with

you?” He leaned over and kissed her. Hard.

It was a bit uncomfortable, standing there in the middle of the

path, in plain view, being kissed with such intensity.

“Come.” He led her off the path and into the thick of the woods.

She had no choice but to follow.

He chuckled as he led her to a large boulder. “Here.”

He scooped her up and placed her on top of the large rock.

Following suit, he climbed up the slight incline and joined Maggie.

Kissing her again, he cupped her head in his hands. Moments

later, his hands smoothed over her body.

Maggie stiffened, pulling away. He sat back, eyes wide. “What

is it, Maggie? What the hell is the problem now?”

“I’m just not ready.”

Placing his head in his hands, he sighed dramatically. “You’re

not ready.” His laugh was sharp.
