All you need is love, or so they say!

Owning a building company means long hours, lonely days and too much physical labour.

When Adam Barrow employs a fit capable guy, life begins to look up. His business thrives from the extra muscle, and so does Adam. Being around chatty Johnny really helps the time fly past. Adam is shy and inexperienced in ways of the heart but very soon his awkwardness eases and he finds himself flirting and having fun.

Johnny Sparrow has a mysterious past and seems to have a knack of stirring up inexplicable presences. From the day he arrives on a motorbike, weird things begin to happen, like strange noises and creepy mists. Even motorbike Angus has a personality!

All you need is love, but can Adam find the strength to confront the ghostly goings-on? Can Johnny find a use for the egg whisk, and can Angus really carry them both to safety?

A story of paranormal divas, supernatural aromas and head-over-heels romance.

Barrow and Sparrow book one.

This was such a fun story with humor, love, motorcycles and ghosts!

Johnny Sparrow is sad and out of work. His sister has died and he’s being followed by strange noises and apparitions.

Adam Barrow is a construction worker in need of assistance. When a friend suggests that Johnny would be a good fit, he offers him the job.

Adam is hilariously unsure of himself and desperate for affection from Johnny. When Johnny shows interest and delivers cheesy lines, it hard not to laugh and hope for the best. Pretty soon it becomes obvious that Johnny has an issue with ghosts and Adam decides it time to organize his time so they don’t take over.

Funny jokes and fights with egg whisks abound in this hilarious ghost story of love and romance. I can’t wait to read the next one!

Galley copy of The Reluctant Ghost Whisperer provided by Beaten Track Publishing in exchange of an honest review.


Reading has become such a huge part of my life as an adult. I love the escape, but I also try to take something from each story for myself. I am a lover of words. I love dialogue. I love a slow burn and a happy ever after. Favorite Authors: Garrett Leigh, Amy Lane, Mary Calmes, Lane Hayes, T.J. Klune, Roan Parrish, N.R. Walker, Cara Dee, Anyta Sunday
