I’m writing the copy for the back cover of Ghost of a Chance (the book blurb). I’d love to know what you think!
Kate doesn’t believe in things that go bump in the night.
Pete is a true believer.
Focused and practical, Kate Murphy spends her days pouring over endless streams of spreadsheets. She thinks putting career over everything will heal her broken heart, but soon realizes there is more to life than working 24/7. When Kate’s best friend asks for help to turn around a floundering occult bookstore in Salem, Massachusetts, she says yes to the challenge and a chance to start a new life.
An assistant professor of Irish history, Pete O’Brien is an academic who is open to the unknown. When he’s not researching Celtic gods and goddesses in his bid for tenure, Pete wanders around old buildings, in the dark, talking to ghosts.
A chance encounter in Salem’s oldest cemetery leaves Pete thinking he’s seen the embodiment of a Celtic goddess, while Kate thinks she’s being followed by the town’s handsome stalker. When a matchmaking apparition named Abigale arrives, she changes Kate’s perceptions, not only about the paranormal but also about love.
From Salem to the shores of Ireland, Abigale works to bring Kate and Pete together. But even with paranormal help, does romance stand a ghost of a chance?
Roll out on the novel is moving along nicely. Cover illustration is in the works and I’m now in the process of choosing my author photo. Watch this space for publishing date!
