Book Blurb:
Gabe MacGowan-a sexy, brooding, guilt-ridden widower and father to mischievous seven-yearold Jake-is the proprietor of Odin's Thumb Inn and Pub in a misty Scottish seaside village. He decides to sell the inn and move, not only to give his son a more stable environment, but to escape the ghosts who haunt him-in particular his dead wife.

Gabe hires Allie Morgan, an easy-going and fun-loving American, to oust the spirits who are chasing away potential buyers. Odin's Thumb is bustling with frightened tourists, quirky residents of the village, and dodgy yet lovable apparitions-including the ghost of a sea captain who fancies Allie. Allie knows she can help Gabe chase away his own ghosts, but can she help him rediscover life-and love?

My thoughts:
When Allie Morgan receives the first international request for her services, she’s quick to take the job. Traveling to Scotland is an opportunity she wouldn’t want to miss, but meeting Gabe and his ghosts will be more than even she could have imagined.

Gabe MacGowan wants a stable home in which to raise his young son, and selling Odin’s Thumb Inn and Pub is the only way he sees to accomplish it. The ghostly residents don’t agree, and are scaring off the possible buyers. Hiring Allie to force the ghosts out seemed like the perfect solution until she walked in and turned Gabe’s life upside down.

MacGowan’s Ghost is a paranormal romance packed with ghostly adventure. Ms. Miles pens an enchanting read with charming ghosts and a lovely setting. The chemistry between Allie and Gabe is apparent from the beginning, and will keep romance fans glued to the pages until the very end. I hope that we’ll be seeing more of this delightful series in the future.
