The New York Times bestselling author of Bet
Me, Tell Me Lies and Welcome to
Temptation delivers her long-awaited new
novel--Maybe This Time.
Andie Miller is ready to move on in life. She wants to marry
her fiancĂ© and leave behind everything in her past,
especially her ex-husband, North Archer. But when Andie
tries to gain closure with him, he asks one final favor of
her before they go their separate ways forever. A very
distant cousin of his has died and left North as the
guardian of two orphans who have driven out three nannies
already, and things are getting worse. He needs a very
special person to take care of the situation and he knows
Andie can handle anything.
When Andie meets the two children she quickly realizes
things are much worse than she feared. The place is a mess,
the children, Carter and Alice, arenâ€™t your average
delinquents, and the creepy old house where they live is
being run by the worst housekeeper since Mrs. Danvers.
Whatâ€™s worse, Andieâ€™s fiancĂ© thinks this is all a plan by
North to get Andie back, and he may be right. Andieâ€™s dreams
have been haunted by North since she arrived at the old
house. And thatâ€™s not the only haunting.
What follows is a hilarious adventure in exorcism, including
a self-doubting parapsychologist, an annoyed medium, her
Tarot-card reading mother, an avenging ex-mother-in-law,
and, of course, her jealous fiancĂ©. And just when she thinks
things couldnâ€™t get more complicated, North shows up on the
doorstep making her wonder if maybe this time things could
be different between them.
If Andie can just get rid of all the guests and ghosts,
sheâ€™s pretty sure she can save the kids, and herself, from
the past. But fate might just have another thing in mindâ€¦
