Publisher's Summary

Andie Miller is ready to move on with her life. She wants to marry her fiancé 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. A distant cousin has died and left North the guardian of two orphans who have driven away three nannies already, and things are getting worse. He needs someone to take care of the situation, and he knows Andie can handle anything....
When Andie meets the two children, she realizes the situation is much worse than she feared. Carter and Alice aren’t your average delinquents, and the creepy old house where they live is being run by the worst housekeeper since Mrs. Danvers. Complicating matters is Andie’s fiancé’s suspicion that this is all a plan by North to get Andie back. He may be right, because Andie’s dreams have been haunted by North since she arrived at the old house. And that’s not the only haunting....
Then her ex-brother-in-law arrives with a duplicitous journalist and a self-doubting parapsychologist, closely followed by an annoyed medium, Andie’s tarot card–reading mother, her avenging ex-mother-in-law, and her jealous fiancé. Just when Andie’s sure things couldn’t get more complicated, North arrives to make her wonder if maybe this time things could just turn out differently....

Loved This Book

I have loved every book I have listened to by Jennifer Crusie (Bet Me, Welcome to Temptation) and Maybe This Time is no different, in fact I think it is my favorite. This is great chick lit with a little bit of paranormal tossed in to mix things up. The narrator is great and in my mind perfect for all the voices. The story line is interesting and just different enough from the normal chick lit to keep you on your toes. If you like romance, creepy old houses, and ghosts then you have to try this book. Even if the paranormal puts you off you should try this book, the paranormal is there but not overwhelming. This is one of my favorite books I have listened to this year.

Ok

This was my first Jennifer Crusie novel so I am not sure if this book reflects her usual writing style. The romance in this novel was not well developed and more attention could have been given to the central relationship. The hero is under developed as a character and the unfolding mystery plot overwhelms most of the book. As a mystery/ghost story it's not a bad read but fairly tame if your a diehard paranormal mystery fan. Overall the book held my attention well enough for a sleepy Sunday but it wasn't anything to rave about.
