A match made in heaven? In what universe? Boston lawyer Gwyneth Jacobi’s perfect life is on the skids. First, she suffered a humiliating and very public loss in San Francisco and, now, her dad is dying. Being handed the ignoble job of helping a wealthy do-gooder with a Don Quixote complex save an old lady and her pig sounds like the punch line to a bad joke—until the day the lawyer they call "The Barracuda" meets Cuddles the pig and her handsome champion, Arley McNamara. He's trust-fund misfit who tilts at windmills. Can a man who has never lacked for anything—but love—convince a by-the-book lawyer to bend a few rules for the greater good? Or will Gwyneth make Arley’s “cause célébre” her shortcut to the top, leaving Arley and the family he’s determined to help behind? Love, after all, demands the kind of truth only an honest heart can answer.

I could picture her saying that after all the Spanish she taught me, day in, day out, I should be able to understand what the woman was saying. My view was I took the B in Spanish and ran before they changed their minds.

She never found love in life…Is it possible she’ll find love after death? Something unexpected happens to Cindy Thomas during a mystery weekend at the Ferris Mansion. One second she’s enjoying a performance with astonishing special effects. The next, she’s dead, surrounded by a troupe of long dead actors who aren’t special effects at all. Harvey, her dream guy, is no longer a dream. He’s real—a real ghost. Suddenly, this new existence is complicated and scary and amazing, leaving her wondering if she’s made the worst mistake of her life, her death, or whatever you want to call it. Cindy will have to decide…should she step through the gateway to Heaven, or is Heaven actually here on earth, in this handsome ghost’s arms? Author’s Note: When I wrote DYING AT HONEYMOON INN, I became fond of Cindy Thomas, the young woman I killed off before readers had a chance to get to know her. For those of you familiar with my other books, you know that in VACATIONING WITH THE DEAD, I populated the Ferris Mansion with a troupe of actors who just happen to be ghosts. I enjoyed writing that book so much, I wanted to revisit the characters. What better way than to have Cindy’s spirit encounter them upon her death? Adding her to the group presented a number of problems, but I really enjoyed writing Cindy and Harvey’s love story. Who’s to say love ends with death, or even the possibility of new love? That’s part of the joy of creation. In my world, it doesn’t have to.
After all these years, he'd never quite found a space he felt was his own. Cindy stretched, her feet pushing through the end of the loveseat she was lying on. She realized she could just as easily rest on the floor.
