Elizabeth Jennings and her fifteen-year-old daughter Claire have relocated from the big city to a tiny town in Virginia so Claire can bring the local newspaper into the digital age. In The Ghost Next Door by Ginny Baird, both Claire and Elizabeth are concerned when it turns out the house they are renting sight unseen is next door to a cemetery. When creepy things start to happen in the empty house next door, Elizabeth is grateful the sexy single sheriff is there to help her out. But Elizabeth trust her heart to someone who fits in so well in such a small town?
Nathan Thorpe likes taking care of the people in his town and he is content to take care of everyone equally until Elizabeth moves to town, now he finds himself wanting to take of her and Claire and becoming a family. But Nathan knows that he is in Blayton Virginia for a reason, but as that reason becomes clearer will he be able have the family he wants?
Okay, I have to admit that the ending of The Ghost Next Door totally threw me. Baird does a great job of foreshadowing the ending but she does it in such a way that I expected a different ending than what really happened. The romance between Elizabeth and Nathan was sweet and I loved the secondary relationship between Claire and Perry. I found The Ghost Next Door to be an entertaining quick read and I loved the scene where the teenage girls broke into the empty house to scare Claire and managed to freak themselves out instead. The mystery elements are a nice combination with the sweet romance stories in The Ghost Next Door but I have to admit that I am disappointed that we don’t get the romance story of Dan and Belle.
