It was a truth universally acknowledged that one’s suitors
and ghosts ought never mix, especially when the ghost was one’s father.

Resigned to spinsterhood in her English manor house, Mary Trentwood is horrified when her father’s ghost crawls from his grave, and struggles as he spouts opinion after opinion about the most mundane things.

Mistaking the newly-arrived and quietly handsome Alexander Hartwell as her father’s solicitor—for who else would interrupt her mourning?—Mary soon realizes her father is adding matchmaking to his repertoire. Neither Mary nor her father realize Hartwell hunts a blackmailer, and shouldn’t waste time seeking Mary’s smiles…


As soon as the door was shut, Mary threw her hands to her face. “I did not see my father’s ghost.” She shivered despite being drenched with sweat. “I must be mad.”

“A bit dramatic, I suppose, but mad? Would I allow you to run my household if you were mad?”

Mary screamed. She grabbed her skirts and scrambled atop her headboard.
At the foot of her bed stood her father. At least, she thought it was her father. It certainly looked just like him. Trentwood stood as he always had when lecturing her, hands clasped behind his back with a stern look on his face.

“So you didn’t see me, eh?”
