Andie goes to take care of two orphaned children living in a huge house in rural southern Ohio at the request of their guardian, her ex-husband, North Archer. Things are far from normal at the house and the kids are uncommunicative and their only good relationship is with each other. Andie sets to work on their education and on getting them to open up to her. Things are complicated by the fact that she starts seeing ghosts. The house is descended upon by a huge cast of characters as Andie tries to figure out how to get rid of the ghosts and deal with her residual feelings for North.

I didn't feel like this is one of Crusie's best efforts. Her supporting characters are my favorites of any of the romance authors I read. I felt like we didn't see enough of them in this book. And while there were some funny moments, this book didn't make me laugh out loud nearly as much as some of her others. Overall, a fairly average novel from Crusie.
