it was amazing

Emily lived and died in the mid 1800s, except she never left her home. Meanwhile back in 1996 John got a nice advance for his screenplay and bought a big old house - an old rectory, for him and his wife Kay to live in - only, they weren't alone. John meets Emily when she appears on his sofa in his office, and the two connect. John is wanting to have a child and Kay isn't interested, while Emily who has missed out on marriage and having children is only too happy to give John a child.

Here's where things go eerie. Emily's ghost remained in the rectory and John's office was once Emily's bedroom. They fall madly in love, and the fun begins when John's wife Kay discovers the relationship her husband has with the ghostly Emily and discovers John impregnated Emily.

It's a paranormal story, so yes, the ghost gets pregant, and from there on become the shenanigans of a mischievous and possessive ghost where Emily's place in John and Kay's life becomes whacky and controled by Emily's decisions and wraths.

Sure, we can ask why on earth Kay didn't take off immediately after her husband confides in her what the heck is going on, but again, it's a paranormal story. And despite the strangeness of the whole situation, I remained flipping the pages as I had to find out how this ghost could be stopped from controling and ruining lives.

There is plenty of suspense in this tale about a family  haunted by a domineering ghost as Turner cleverly blends this story of family, and paranormal, into a thriller-like tale of love, possessiveness and intrigue that will keep us guessing at every plot twist. Can Emily be tamed? Will Kay hang around? Will Emily ever leave?

If you're looking for a quick read that will keep you turning the pages and have you enjoying all the elements involved in this story, you will no doubt enjoy this book.
