Ashlyn Montana had encountered ghosts her whole life, but none more charming or irresistible than Bob Abbott. From the moment the fatherly figure floated into her life, she knew she met a friend she could trust. Pressured by her family to marry young, Ashlyn takes Bob’s advice and goes on the run in disguise. But when he talks her into taking a job in Breaker Creek as a farm boy named Al, she becomes suspicious. Did her ghostly pal lead her to freedom, or entangle her into his past?
Hunter Abbott had no idea what he was getting into hiring the clueless and scrawny farm boy, Al. But he felt for the kid. There was a time he was once a lost boy looking for a place to belong, until his Uncle Bob took him under his wing. But when Hunter tries to help guide Al into a farmer it leads to a shocking discovery. His new hire is hiding an unbelievable secret. And Hunter is about to face a reality he never thought possible.
Can the two people Bob Abbot loves most, find love as they work to solve the mystery of his murder?
“So what?” Al challenged back. His voice had gone up in pitch again, and his eyes were blazing with anger. “You’re not the boss of everything I do.”
He crossed his arms over his chest. If Al wanted to fight with him like a man, then he had better be ready to act like one. “I pay you, feed you, and give you a place to live. And as long as I do all three of those things what I say goes.” He leaned close and lowered his voice. “Now go take a shower, change your clothes, and join our guests for dinner.”
Al turned his head to the left of him and stuck out his tongue.
Hunter grabbed him by the front of his overalls and pulled him up into the air so that they were face to face. “Now you’re sticking out your tongue at me?”
“Not at you,” the boy squeaked, fighting Hunter’s grip.
“Then who are you giving that look too, kid?” He gave the boy one gentle warning shake, before lowering him back to his feet. “I’m the only person standing in this room with you.”
Al looked down at his boots, refusing to answer. And just like that, Hunter snapped again. He grabbed onto the boy’s arm firmly, and repeated, “Who are you giving that look to?”
“Nobody.” Al tried to pull his arm back and got nowhere. He glanced up at Hunter with desperation, and his eyes were so startling green at that moment—his lashes so long, his cheeks so pink—he looked exactly like a woman.
Hunter dropped the boy's arm and took several steps back.
