Genre: Fiction- Adult: Paranormal Romance
How I got it: NetGalley

A paranormal category romance from Entangled's Covet imprint...

It might be love…but will they survive the night?

The ghosts of her family's estate on the coast of Maine never troubled Ava Trumble. When she finally inherits the historic mansion, however, there's a small string attached: Ava has exactly one year to solve a 200-year-old mystery of a missing girl, or lose her family's home...

The lead investigator for paranormal TV show Phantoms, Jackson Granger, is prepared for any metaphysical encounter—until now. It's not just the uncanny sense of "coming home" or even his reaction to the fiery redhead who seems to consume his every waking thought. No, it's that the ghosts are using Jackson and Ava's attraction to play out a centuries-old tragedy. Heartbreak. Loss. Overwhelming passion. Now Jackson and Ava must determine if they're sharing something real...or if they've been possessed by a love that never died.

Review: Ava is desperate, in order to keep her home and fulfill her dream she must solve a 200-year-old mystery. She's so desperate that she calls in a group of paranormal investigators to film their show at her home. Little did she know that the shows lead investigator was a descendant of the family tangled with her own or that they would have such a overwhelming attraction.
Ava is a wonderful main character, fiery, spunky and yet delicate under her tough gal exterior. Jackson is and isn't your alpha male, he actually has a lot going on in the wounded guy department. All that emotional baggage that makes women go aww you poor thing. Of course Ava and Jackson's up bringing are complete opposites, giving him a taste of all that homey stuff he's never had and letting Ava see he's not the wandering tramp she believes him to be. They have great chemistry, but we have to wonder if it's them or the paranormal which is creating it.
The plot moves along very well, keeping me engaged and interested. I felt Ms. Moran really did her homework when it came to all the paranormal investigating equipment and what-not. I liked that it even had a little glossary in the front to explain all the various terms.
Definitely a fun read for anyone who likes romance, mystery and the paranormal.
