Kimberley's Review of Her Ghost Wears Kilts by Kathleen Shaputis

Her Ghost Wears Kilts 
Paranormal Romance/219pages

To Purchase : Amazon or B&N

Something’s not right at Baillie’s popular used bookstore in rain-soaked western Washington and frigid, heart-stopping air is her first clue. When the cat refuses to enter the shop and Baillie hears faint bagpipes in the travel book section, her nerves are rubbed raw.
Meanwhile in Scotland, the heir of a local castle falls to a suspicious death. An evil banker claims ownership of the castle, leaving the staff to ponder their fate.How are these events connected? The answer lies in a Ghost and Mrs. Muir tale, twenty-first century style that flips the table with a ghostly twenty-seven-year-old hunk, Lord Kai, and fifty-something bachelorette Baillie. Her gay best friend Gillian Nation and his girls dash to Scotland to Baillie’s rescue when the combination of alcohol, villainous banker, DNA, and good old-fashioned jealousy throw Baillie into the fight of her life. Will she choose to reclaim her normal Northwest existence or grab onto an unorthodox love that makes life magical and breath-taking?

Delightful Story!!
I loved this book because it is romantic without being cheesy or sappy, ghostly without being Gothic, and it never takes itself too seriously.
With an entertaining bunch of devoted, quirky friends and a villain who won't stop at anything to get what he wants, Baillie gets to know and love her ghost, his castle, and the beautiful Scottish countryside. Excitement and peril, with a lot of fun, make this story a quick and delightful read.
Well-plotted, great dialogue, wonderful characters. I can imagine myself there!

  1. Thank you so much for the review, especially at this holiday time, letting your readers know about my latest book. The characters pretty much wrote their own tickets during the writing and presented me with a few surprises. I'm currently working on the sequel.
