Description:

Ryan Kinkaid, a successful gay Manhattan antique dealer has had it with life in New York City, especially his random love life. Ryan has what most New Yorker’s want – his own successful business, and a mortgage-free brownstone on West 71st Street. However, at age forty-one he discovers he is lacking one very important thing in his life . . . a meaningful and loving relationship. With summer just around the corner, the approaching heat and his restlessness are reasons for his escape from the city. A four month rental in historic and picturesque Portsmouth, New Hampshire, with his best friend Lauren was the answer.

Renting a house built in 1810, kindred spirit Nicholas reaches out for contact, and Ryan finds himself wanting to know about the past. However, Nicholas is not the only one wanting Ryan’s attention. Ty, a handsome local man, also has strong desires for Ryan.

The stark contrast of the past collides with the present in this tale of lost and betrayed love, and irrational and undying prejudice.

In the end, all that is left is the affirmation of the value of honesty and commitment in love.

My Thoughts: 

Ryan Kinkaid is tired of one night stands and New York and looking for a break and decides with his best friend to head to New Hampshire for a break and hopefully to find a long lasting relationship.  What he stumbles across is a beautiful house with a haunting spirit.

Nicholas Walsh a young man who died supposedly of diabetes which as a child in the 50's resulted commonly with death.  But Nicholas wants something from Ryan and Ryan is determined to find out what it is.

Ryan also meets a fellow gay man named Ty instantly they form a connection of attraction, and find themselves getting romantically involved.

This book was full of romance and finding the right person and seeing how love can transcend death.  A haunted spirit awaiting the return of his love.
