This book reminded me a lot of the 2nd book, but with a different couple. While Artemas and Madeline are very different people than Edison and Emma, the banter between them, the chemistry between them, and the whole employer-employee thing was much the same.
The ghost part of the story and the mystery involved was different, and that was more compelling than the relationship between Artemas and Maddie. Somehow, I didn't feel the heat between them like with Edison and Emma. Not sure why...more

The characters in this were also very likeable, and I love the dialogue in these books, it is amusing and witty. And the mystery is good enough to keep you intrigued with out being over complicated or over simple.
All in all this is a light hearted and enjoyable read that I would recommend if you are looking for an...more
There were a few scenes that were too familiar to ones in other books, mainly the overcome from passions, whoops she may be headstrong and 'old' but she's still and innocent oh wriggle wriggle moment over and disappointment on all sides.
It gets tiring and Madeline got on my very last nerve. Unlike the first book I didn't buy their chemistry at all.
Madeline Deveridge is known for being the Wicked Widow and it is said that any man that stays the night with her will be dead before morning. Artemas Hunt loves a challenge and he can not stay away from the headstrong Wicked Widow.
