If Tombstones Could Talk

Had someone asked Melanie Sparks if she believed in ghosts, she'd have laughed before voicing an emphatic "No."

Then she takes a walking tour of the cemetery in her new hometown of Lindeman's Crossing, Colorado and meets one of the residents face to face. The story behind Andrew Lindeman's tragic death after the Pike's Peak Gold Rush in 1859 triggers dreams in which she relives his last moments.

Drawn to the handsome ghost, attraction builds, and she resolves to clear his tarnished name. A passionate kiss sets his spirit free, but will Melanie lose her heart forever?

This is a fantastic story blending 3 of my favorite genres-western historical, paranormal, and a little mystery. I loved the scenes with Melanie and Andrew in the cemetery, and the historical aspect of the bank robbery back in the Gold Rush. And the contemporary romance is incredibly sweet. I just wish it had been longer...a sequel would be wonderful!!!
