What To Do About The Ghost?

Wild Women Focus on: Sandra Tilley's The Ghost and Mrs Miller

     Libby Miller is a good Southern girl and good Southern girls know the rules.
     But fate has no rules. On her nineteenth wedding anniversary, fate whips up a tornado of turmoil when Libby finds her husband Neil in the arms of his assistant. But the storm’s not over. Neil flips his BMW, and Libby comes home to find his ghost in the dining room.
     How is Libby supposed to grieve and move on with Neil’s ever-present, meddling ethereal presence in her life? With her twentieth high school reunion looming, Libby finds herself torn between two men from her past. One man promises passion and a new beginning, and the other wants to pick up where they left off. Neil stirs up a maelstrom of mischief, making it almost impossible for Libby to sort through the rubble. Libby anticipates a confrontation between her two suitors–not a shadowy stalker who chooses the reunion as his setting for a showdown.
     In Libby’s quest for independence, she rejects the one man who can save her. Can she compromise the price of her freedom, or will it cost her a second chance at love and put her life in danger?
Ready for more? Here’s an excerpt:
Jesse tapped my watch. “What’s your rush, Lib? I wanted to talk about Neil’s office building. My real estate guy said he’s been trying to get you to show him the property.”
Neil’s diaphanous form grew more solid, and he shook his fist in Jesse’s face. “It’s not for sale.”
Why are you annoyed?” Oh, my God. I’d asked Neil a question—out loud.
Jesse answered. “I’m not annoyed. Now my real estate guy is a little pissed because you won’t return his calls.”
He’s wasting his time calling. I haven’t made a decision on selling Neil’s building,” I said.
The air crackled and swelled. A cloud of Neil hung heavy over Jesse. “Why’s he so interested?”
Eli’s plastic cup crunched in his hand. “Not a cool time to talk business.”
Still protecting her.” Jesse leaned back and then an ah-ha look sparked a grin. “Wait a minute. Are you two together?”
Before I could answer, Neil jumped in my face. “Well? Are you together?”
Don’t be stupid,” I said to Neil.
Eli smashed his coffee cup flat and shot Jesse a deadly look. “You heard the lady.”

Here’s a bit about our guest author:
     Sandra Tilley grew up in a small town near Birmingham, Alabama, where friends always entered through the back door and where everyone spoke the same language—Southern. After a successful teaching career, she packed up her pearls and headed toward her inspiration: the sugar-white beaches of Orange Beach, Alabama, on the blue-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

  3. Wow, you had me at. . .

    Neil stirs up a maelstrom of mischief, making it almost impossible for Libby to sort through the rubble. Libby anticipates a confrontation between her two suitors–not a shadowy stalker who chooses the reunion as his setting for a showdown.

    Sounds full intrigue. The perfect summer read.
