The Shop on Royal Street by Karen White


Nola had a hard childhood, so she decided to move to New Orleans and start over.  She loves refurbishing houses and has found the perfect one.  She can even afford it.  But the owner doesn't want to sell it to her.  It has a for sale sign out front.  Why not sell it?

Net Galley and Berkley Books let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published March 29th.

She realizes that ghosts are in the house but she has decided to ignore them.  As if having a dilapidated old house that needs to be refurbished isn't a big enough challenge, she has two men she's interested in.

She thinks she's falling in love with one but he has a girlfriend.  Then the other man shows up and they have a lot in common.  She starts dating him.

It's a challenge to get the ghosts to go away.  She still isn't sure which man she really wants.  But as she gets the house remodel going and then focuses on the men, she gets a surprise.

At the end of the book, there's another surprise...
