Paranormal Romance, Paranormal with Romantic Elements, Romantic Suspense/Mystery
After tragedy strikes, Callie Sinclair is left with a gift she never wanted—the ability to communicate with ghosts. But when a desperate widow begs for her help, she reluctantly agrees to investigate the strange occurrences at Hillwood Farm. She quickly realizes she's dealing with a dangerous presence beyond anything she's ever experienced, and something else becomes equally clear—the only other living person in the house, Mrs. Turner's handsome grandson, thinks she's a scam artist. While she'd prefer to just ignore him, her heart beats a little faster every time he's nearby.
Luke Turner doesn't believe in spirits. He's moved back to restore the family farm, but living on the property serves a dual purpose—he can watch out for his grandmother. He's not happy about the sudden appearance of a self-described psychic, or his inexplicable attraction to her. His initial suspicions crumble as evidence points to an actual haunting, but he's still determined not to fall for Callie—the past has taught him it's best to avoid relationships.
As Callie is drawn deeper into the mystery, she becomes the target of a vengeful spirit, and Luke can no longer fight his feelings for her. Unable to resist their desire, passion ignites…even as the paranormal activity escalates to a final deadly confrontation.

THE HAUNTING OF HILLWOOD FARM is a fast-paced Paranormal Romance with a strong sense of suspense! Callie has the ability to hear, and sometimes see, ghosts. This ability came about in tragic circumstances, and as such, she has not permitted herself to get close to anyone since. This is a moot point once she meets Alice, and her skeptical grandson, Luke.
The relationship takes time, which was nice to read. They didn't just jump straight into bed with each other, and Callie was resistant to even moving to the farm with Alice and Luke for her own safety. The identity of the ghost was fairly obvious but it still made for fascinating reading, to find out all the twists and turns that made up the story.
This story was very well-written, with no editing or grammatical errors that I noticed. The characters are all well-rounded, and Alice is going to be a reader's favourite, I'm sure.
A thoroughly enjoyable story, with suspense and romance, and plenty of paranormal activity.
