Penny had been stuck in the same diner for decades—ever since she died in 1952. Her diner
was comfortable and safe. Serving ice cream to those who dropped in on their way to the
next level of existence, she helped to ease their transition into The Light, the one place she can't go. Her afterlife was perfect.
But when the ridiculously handsome, bad boy biker Jake Thatcher shows up and becomes stuck
as well, Penny rediscovers feelings that she thought had been buried with her body.
Life is still life, and love is still love. But was her existence really perfect, or was it something else entirely?
It’s the time of year for ghost stories, want to read along with the crowd but aren’t too crazy about scary tales? Pick up Meg Welch Dendler’s At the Corner of Magnetic and Main and settle in to discover the real story of what goes on when ghosts haunt a town, because there can be life after death.
Penny is the friendly waitress, serving up ice cream in the old diner at Magnetic and Main. Although she looks seventeen, she’s been doing her job with a smile and a kind word for sixty years. Penny is a ghost, safely ensconced in her small town in a place that gave her comfort in life. For decades she has helped others go on into the light and eternal joy.
In struts Jake, the hot, biker bad boy with a devilish streak and zest for living life on the edge. Can she guide him into the light or has Jake got a few adventures left on his bucket list to take care of first? Life as a ghost will never be the same for Penny and the other resident ghosts once Jake cuts loose, but one thing happens she could never see coming…
Meg Welch Dendler has written a beautiful and gentle tale, far from the usual ghost fare we have come to expect. This is a tale of love, for life, for others and for doing the right thing, even if it is by unconventional methods. It is a tale of moving on to the next chapter and leaving the comfort zones behind for a chance at a better future. Delightful women’s fiction to savor and enjoy!
