TIME AFTER TIME: In Gilded Age Newport, an upstairs-downstairs romance between a well-born son and a humble maid is cut short of marriage. A hundred years later, the descendants of that ill-fated union seem destined to repeat history.
Or not. Liz Coppersmith, a party planner, hopes to move beyond kids' parties at Chuck E. Cheese to planning premier events among the upper crust in Newport, Rhode Island. Her first upscale client is confirmed bachelor Jack Eastman, a party pooper who's struggling to keep the family empire afloat and would be just fine with Chuck E. Cheese.
Jack is also juggling an untrained puppy, two illegitimate toddlers, a runaway mother and an aging Casanova father. But it's not all sweetness and light for Liz, either: she finds herself in the middle of an historic mystery, with an amnesiac friend, a thief on the loose and a recurring apparition that may or may not be her imagination.
"A rollicking great read ... as hilarious as it is poignant and heart-tugging ... will command center stage on your keeper shelf. Once again, Antoinette Stockenberg has done a magnificent job."
"EMILY'S GHOST is great fun. A witty, entertaining romantic read that has everything -- a lively ghost, an old murder mystery and a charming romance."
And the nanny herself? Peaches Bartholemew is as clever as she is beautiful, as efficient as she is soothing. Peaches can do anything. The trick, for Nat's dead wife, will be to keep her from doing it.
"A gripping and chilling page-turner outlining two families' courageous battle against an insidious evil with a charming face. Outstanding reading!"
