I really, really wanted to like this book. I read the summary that was provided here at GoodReads and liked the premise: Single gay dad, ghost, romance, small town politics, rebuilding a life. It had potential. The problem is that the summary told the whole story. Dexter, the main character, leaves Hollywood with his daughter and heads to the east coast. He buys a beautiful home that is haunted, meets a local that gets him involved in a local political issue, his ex-bf loses his money and Dexter ...more

I took a while to get to know and like Dexter, but once I did I really liked this book. Maybe because I liked the original concept so much. Who wouldn't? The book is great for a number of reasons. The sex is hot. The Captain is suitably the perfect stud, and Dexter, the ex-child actor narrator has a delightful turn of bitchiness, especially when describing other people and their clothes. Here's a couple of great examples:

As I love the movie The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, I was intrigued after reading the blurb for The Ghost and Mr. Moore. I was not disappointed. This is a great story, tongue-in-cheek at times, serious at others, but entertaining all the way through. A ghost story set around love and determination to make it work even when everything seems impossible. A fun read from beginning to end.

I did not find this book remotely romantic. I've read other books where there's a romance with a ghost that were very romantic. This book wasn't one of them. I just found the main character, Dexter pathetic and desperate. I found captain Lang creepy and under developed. The only redeeming characters in the book were the secondary ones, I loved Brighton and Marion. I just couldn't buy that Dexter was passing over chances for a normal healthy relationship for a ghostly obsessive one. Even the 'hap ...more
fun quick read. only a couple of quibbles
1. proofreading in the beginning missed a few misnames--Dexter is referred to as Michael
2.personally i don't think enough time was allowed to drive from P'town to Logan Airport but thats me or it could have been made clearer how early they had to get up to be there to allow enough time for TSA and their procedures.
