From #1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery comes a reader-favorite
tale of starting over and finding love where you least expect it.
Carly Spencer is almost 40, and her life hasn't exactly gone as planned. Weeks away from
her big birthday, she finds herself on the brink of divorce—from a husband whose need to

Hawaii—and on her way back to her childhood home with her smart-mouthed teenaged daughter,
Tiffany, in tow. At least her hometown can offer her the serenity of the ocean.
Chatsworth-by-the-Sea, a sprawling B&B on the rugged northern California coast, is where
Carly grew up. Now that life has thrown her a massive curveball, she's decided to help her
widowed mother, Rhonda, run the place. But between Tiffany's teenage angst and Rhonda's
incessant nagging, Carly's homecoming proves to be anything but peaceful. And when she
decides to use the rumors that Chatsworth is haunted to drive new business, she winds up
with a real-life ghost hunter as a guest. A stunningly attractive ghost hunter, who seems
just as interested in Carly as her haunted house…
