SYNOPSIS


Naomi has a knack for attracting attention from ethereal beings—whether she
wants it or not. Newly engaged to her sexy neighbor, Bryce, she has little
time to celebrate and plan for her upcoming wedding, because no sooner does
she wrap up a heartbreaking cold case than she finds herself right back
where she started, searching for answers alongside ghostly spirits.
This time, however, Naomi learns that things are not what they seem as a
man from her past quickly becomes her worst nightmare. If she’s not
careful, this man might crush her hopes and dreams forever as he proves to
be her most difficult opponent yet.
Still, Naomi tries to focus on her relationship with Bryce. Can it
withstand head games and cruel intentions? Naomi makes it her mission to
keep Bryce and his daughter safe from harm, but will true love be tough
enough to withstand her adversaries?
Naomi must keep her eyes wide open and question everything— and everyone—in
order to survive.

Excerpt




Naomi




She sensed it before she heard the news. She could feel it deep in her
bones. All night long she had tossed and turned, unable to find sleep.
Nick.
“No,” Naomi wailed into her pillow, pounding her fists.
No. But, of course, she knew it was true. After all, she had a sixth sense
about things such as this. Damn, Nick. Why? How?
It had been several months since she had taken in his disheveled form,
those cowardly eyes scanning her face, pleading for forgiveness from the
other side of the depressing, stained, plastic divider at the county jail.
Forgiveness that was difficult to give, although she had been working on
it. Too late, Nick. It’s way too late for you now. Part of Naomi’s heart
ached for Nick’s troubled soul. For the troubled child he had once been.
Another part turned cold as she conjured up his face in her mind. As she
had woken from a fitful night’s sleep, the image of Nick crying out, lost
in the empty dark place where challenged souls lacked peace and closure,
was too overwhelming to dismiss as a bad dream.
“Bryce.” Naomi spoke his name aloud, even though her fiancĂ© was most likely
sound asleep at his house just up the dirt road.
She needed Bryce.
But Naomi knew Bryce would have to wait. Right after her first cup of
coffee, she would have to call Officer Marty to confirm the facts of what
she already knew to be true.
How had it happened? Possibilities swirled through her mind. Endless
scenarios came forth. It could be anything. Nick had been doing time for
his part in the cover-up of Maggie Field’s death. Prisons could be
dangerous, particularly for someone like Nick, a man who struggled to keep
his emotions in check and often had difficulty conforming to the rules.
One with a dark, menacing presence.
One with attitude.
Memories of the not so distant past slammed Naomi. Images of Ryan and
Maggie . . .
Maggie.
The ghost that had all but consumed her. Maggie had reached out to Naomi,
demanding peace. Naomi admitted to herself that she had become obsessed at
that time in her life. Preoccupied with putting both Maggie and Ryan to
rest. Luckily, Bryce was loyal and patient to the core during the first
hectic months of their new relationship.
What would he say now, knowing that a spirit was back? Knowing that this
time it wasn’t the sweet spirit of a girl named Maggie or a quirky,
kindhearted man that needed her help?
This time it was worse, far worse.
This time the spirit was unsettled, tortured—and to make matters even more
daunting . . .
He was her ex-boyfriend.
Would Bryce be as understanding about Nick as he had been with Maggie and
Ryan? Hopping up out of her bed to make her cup of coffee, Naomi figured
she was about to find out.


***
Moments after she hung up the phone with her friend, Officer Miriam Marty,
Naomi reached for her coffee mug but then placed it back on the counter
with a gentle thud.
Damn, Nick.
Miriam had confirmed Naomi’s worst suspicions and provided the bare facts
surrounding Nick’s death.
He was, indeed, dead. But the strange thing about it was that it appeared
to have been intentional on his part. It was too early to say, but Miriam
suspected that traces of drugs would be found in his system.
An overdose? Could he have intentionally taken his own life? No, that
didn’t sound right. Then again, how well did Naomi even know Nick anymore?
For that matter, how well had she ever known him? Naomi supposed it was
easy enough for an inmate to have the means to obtain drugs. And, let’s
face it, prison life could be grueling.
No, no. Something didn’t feel right about this. Nick’s sentence was only to
last just a few more weeks, why would he purposely harm himself? As Naomi
tried to make sense of the news, she paced the floor. Zelda, her loyal
feline companion, weaved in and out of her legs as Naomi stopped and
grabbed her coffee mug from the table.
Sharp rapping on the door startled Naomi, causing her to spill her coffee
on her blouse. “Shoot!”
Voicing her own displeasure at nearly being stepped on, Zelda screeched as
she tore into the living room. Naomi snatched a napkin, wiping at her top
as she made her way to the door.
“Are you ready?” Bryce raised an eyebrow as Naomi stepped to the side to
allow him through the front door. He leaned over and placed a quick kiss on
her forehead.
“Ready?”
“Ah, yes. Remember? We were going to grab a bite and then head over to the
trail for a walk?”
Yes. That’s right. She and Bryce had plans this morning. With everything
going on, she had clearly forgotten.
“I . . . I’m so sorry. Give me a minute to change my shirt. Sit, I’ll be
right back.” She scurried up the stairs to her bedroom to change. This
could be a good thing, the time alone with Bryce. His young daughter,
Holly, was in school, and she could have Bryce’s full attention.
Dressed in a clean shirt, Naomi sprinted down the stairs and grabbed her
sneakers. She attempted her best smile as she tied the laces. “Almost
ready,” Naomi managed.
“What’s with you? Why are you out of breath?” Bryce cocked his head as he
studied Naomi.
“Just excited to spend the morning with you,” she offered a bit too
cheerily, glancing up at him as she felt nagging guilt rise in her throat.
He wouldn’t be happy about the news regarding Nick, and that was putting it
mildly. He simply couldn’t even begin to understand. He would tell her to
leave it alone, not to get caught up in somebody else’s problems.
Naomi swallowed hard and gripped Bryce’s warm hand as they made their way
to his truck. Once inside, Naomi glanced at her fiancé and then gazed down
at her lap.
“Bryce?” she whispered.
Concern etched his handsome face. “What is it? What’s wrong?” He reached
for her hands.
“We need to talk.”
