Crusie, Jennifer.
Adult Fiction CRUSIE

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Crusie (Bet Me) is back on her own-after a couple of books written with Bob Mayer-with a sweet, offbeat romantic tale of second chances. Thirty-four-year-old Andie, hoping to cut the ties that still bind her to rich ex-hubby North, winds up instead getting drafted to "fix" the troubled orphaned children of North's cousin, who live with a grouchy housekeeper and a crew of ghosts that have an interest in the kids and their gothic mansion home. But there's no ordinary fix for this unruly bunch of living and undead as Andie tries to cajole them all-troubled and lonely kids Alice and Carter, dead aunt May aiming for a do-over, newly dead Dennis, and ancient spooks Miss J and Peter-into moving on. Crusie's created a sharp cast of lonely souls, wacky weirdos, ghosts both good and bad, and unlikely heroes who are brave enough to give life and love one more try. You don't have to believe in the afterlife to relish this fun, bright romp. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

Andromeda Miller is finally ready to get over her ex-husband, North Archer, and marry again, when he asks her for one last favor. He's been appointed guardian to two children and can't seem to keep a nanny-the house the children inherited is supposedly haunted, and the children are, well, odd, causing nannies to flee. Andie agrees to live with the children and tutor them for one month to get them back on track to move in with North and return to school. She discovers that the children aren't really all that strange, but the house may indeed be inhabited by several ghosts. There are other complications-a crazy, hostile housekeeper; a ghost-hunting TV reporter; and North's still strong feelings for Andie. VERDICT Fans waiting for Crusie to return to her original style of sassy, witty romances after her collaborations with action writer Bob Mayer (Wild Ride) might be a little disappointed with this foray into the paranormal, but her sense of humor and knack for fun characters are all here.
