Kalinda Evans works for the Anglo-Boer war foundation in Canada. She’s sent to South Africa to make sure everyone who lost their lives in the war will be remembered. On her drive to the guest farm in Kimberley, South Africa, Kalinda picks up a female hitchhiker and is startled when just moments later, the woman vanishes. Kalinda would be convinced she was dreaming…except there’s still a white lace handkerchief on the passenger seat.
Extreme sports enthusiast and computer game designer Zack Carteris always after the next big challenge. He’s far too busy for romance and adheres to a three-date rule until he meets his parents’ latest guest. When she relays the story of her mysterious experience, Zack’s family shares the local ghost story. Kalinda and Zack work together to solve the puzzle of the ghost and how it all ties in with the war and the work Kalinda is doing.
As their attraction grows, Zack realizes he no longer feels the need to prove anything to himself. He only needs to prove to Kalinda that he’s more than a good time.
I enjoy romance with a twist, and this unusual story has more than one to entice the reader.
Set predominately in South Africa it explores the romance between Kalinder and Zack. Kalinder experiences an unnerving encounter when she offers a lift to a lone woman while travelling to a guest farm. Zack is at the right place and time to help, but neither expects the attraction that ignites between them.
There is a credible, supernatural thread to this romance, which draws the past and present together. Whether this is a local folk tale or reality, the ghost’s presence touches Kalinder and Zack’s lives.
The historical detail gives depth to the plot making it a unique romantic story.
A story of accepting the past and looking forward to the future with heartfelt romance and believable characters.
