Genre:
Contemporary Romance

Spinning Hills, Ohio, home of the third most haunted street in the state, is
the perfect place for three sisters to banish the unhappy specters of
their pasts—and to let romance cast its spell . . .

Gracie Piper is good at being invisible, and she likes it that way. At just
seventeen, she took a very public stand against the boy who passed a
revealing video of her all over school. Ever since, she’s staked
her life on staying out of the limelight. But when she moves back to
Spinning Hills, she comes face to face with her painful past. In the
same historic building Gracie’s boss has assigned her to supervise
renovating works the man who helped her find justice nine years ago,
and nearly lost his own career in the process. A man who suddenly
arouses feelings that make Gracie weak in the knees . . .

Josh Goodwin is sure he’s seeing a ghost when he spots Gracie in the
halls of his office building. Taking her case was a professional risk
that became all too personal when a bitter ex accused him of getting
involved with teenage Gracie. Seeing her again is opening old wounds,
and threatening brand-new ones—his campaign for County Prosecutor
won’t withstand a brand-new scandal. But there’s something about
sweet, gorgeous Gracie that brings out the crusader in him—and the
thing he’ll fight hardest for is her love . . .





“Who are you hiding from, Gracie?” he asked, looking straight into her eyes. There was warmth there. And she couldn’t handle it.

“I’m hiding from disruptions,” she answered and began walking down the hallway ahead of him, a mistake that left her feeling awkward and exposed. “I’m taking everything in. Silence and stillness is a must. Tomorrow my team and I will start observing everyone at work and begin asking questions so we can incorporate everyone’s needs into the design. Tonight, I needed to be alone.” She came to a stop at the end of the hallway and cast him a quick, over-the-shoulder glance, to see if he’d caught the small hint. It was obvious he had, but there was now pity in his eyes. Her cheeks heated up.

Josh set down his briefcase while he shrugged into his light coat. She was dismissing him and it was just as well. They were both un- comfortable.

Gracie, on the eve of his announcement. It was a worst-case sce- nario. The case that had defined his career had also almost derailed it, thanks to the lies and vitriol of both the people Gracie had been up against and the important people Josh had defied: a group he had once belonged to. It always brought up mixed feelings. Gratitude that he’d been saved from a meaningless life but also the sickening feel- ing that justice and honesty didn’t always win.

When Gracie turned to him, he was again taken aback by how much she’d changed—or rather, how much her experience must’ve changed her. I’m hiding from disruptions . . .

A ghost of the girl she’d once been. She’d even changed her last name. He picked up his briefcase again and stretched his right arm out to shake her hand. “I don’t know what to say. It’s nice to meet you, Grace Dearborn. We sorely need the renovations and updates your firm has been hired to do. But I’d like to talk to Gracie Piper someday to find out how she wound up where she is. I often wonder about her, you know.” And with that, he turned and left.
