A short ghost story in the Bed, Breakfast, and Betrayal series by Lisa Carlisle.
Once thinking it was a curse, Sybil Channing now uses her gift to communicate with spirits as a lucrative way to make a living. She dubs herself a ghost whisperer and plays up her role as an eccentric woman who can talk to the dead. When she receives a call from a bed and breakfast with an issue with a ghost, Sybil thinks it will just be another easy, nice-paying gig. Sure, there’s a bit of a mystery about women becoming ill, but nothing to scare her off. Yet when she arrives, what she encounters is far more dangerous than she anticipated.
A short crime story. Part of the Bed, Breakfast, and Betrayal series.
Heather is looking forward to reconnect with her husband Paolo during a getaway to a bed and breakfast. They’d both been working late and think a romantic weekend on the coast is the ideal way to spend time together. She thinks of walks on the beach, dinners out, and sleeping in. What starts out as a romantic weekend soon takes a dark turn, shattering dreams and expectations.
After the worst fight of their relationship, the last place Stephanie wants to be is a wedding reception. She still can’t get over what happened. Could their five years of marriage be destroyed after a blast of heated words? Johnny suggested separating. Separating! Now with her marriage on the line, she has to put on a brave face and pretend love is grand.
Johnny doesn’t know why he’d freaked out the way he had and is left with one emotion. Regret. He doesn’t want to lose Stephanie. He must find her and make things right.
Stephanie enters the reception, fearing the end of her marriage. Johnny has something else in mind—a much more decadent proposal that will turn her friend’s wedding into an event they’ll never forget.
