I enjoyed this story for the most part. I did not see the reason for the ghost.

I guess this book just wasn't my cup of tea. I skimmed through quite a bit of it. There were a few things that I liked about it. The main guy character did have some depth. The main female character, Natalie, was okay except I got tired of how rude and sometimes uncaring she acted. One thing that aggravated me was that the character of the ghost never seemed to serve a function in the story. He has several scenes at the beginning, but just drops off the page pretty much after that. So, what was the point in having him in the story?
One reason I skimmed to the end is that I wanted to find out what happened to him. Well, nothing particular happened except he just faded away. Actually he seemed to be the most interesting character in the book. Yet he served no real function in the story; nor did he have his own secondary story. It seemed strange that Natalie's main reaction to a ghost in her house is how inconvenient and bothersome it is. It never occurs to her to think that seeing and talking to a real ghost means that there is some kind of life after death, and that therefore her parents who died perhaps are together somewhere and happy. You'd think she'd have a great deal to ask this ghost. Instead she just dismisses him, because she thinks he's no use to her. The poor ghost hadn't been able to talk to anyone in almost a hundred years. You'd think she'd have some sympathy for the guy.
I guess if the author had left the ghost out of the story, I would say that the story would have been pretty good if you like that sort of low key romantic light drama, barring the fact that the main female character was overly bitchy.
