Once haunted . . .
Gemma Daniels has never been quite the “down to earth” woman her adoptive parents raised her to be. She even has a unique gift: she can see ghosts—and she likes helping them settle their unfinished business. But the hotter-than-hot stranger she impulsively kisses on a bet is not only a phantom, he's determined to help her. And the only way Gemma can explain his presence is to pretend they’re a real-life couple . . .

Third time’s the unforgettable charm . . .
Gemma is thrilled to be getting to know her sister, but it causes a family rift she may not be able to heal. On top of that, she’s falling for a ghost with a dilemma. For Levi must decide what loyalty—and living—is truly all about. To fix their mistakes, Gemma and Levi must risk being real with themselves—and each other—if they’re ever to claim true love . . .
There's love after life in this charming rom-com from Beharrie (And They Lived Happily Ever After). Gemma Daniels, 28, has been seeing ghosts and helping them settle unfinished business since she turned 18, so it's not surprising when the stranger she kisses at her best friend's bachelorette party turns out to be a ghost. What does shock her is that, this time, he's here to help her, revealing that Gemma has a twin sister, Gaia, who was left in the foster system when Gemma was adopted. Phantom Levi Walker has been offered the chance to return to life if he can help Gemma and Gaia reconnect within three months—but if he fails, he'll face grave consequences. This mission proves more complicated than anticipated: when Gemma meets Gaia, she lies, pretending to be a fan of Gaia's novels rather than revealing their true connection. The deception spirals further when Gemma and Levi must explain his continued presence to her friends and family—so, of course, they pretend that they're dating. Levi is a charming hero up against impossibly high stakes, and Gemma's sunshiny outlook is sure to endear her to readers. Their slow-burning will-they, won't-they combined with Beharrie's laugh-out-loud narration makes this a surefire crowd pleaser. Agent: Courtney Miller-Callihan, Handspun Literary.
