Lainy Martin and Ethan "Bo" Bohannen are destined to meet, fall in love, and live happily ever after. There's just one bump in the road to bliss: Lainy is dead.
But destiny isn't cheated so easily. As Lainy adjusts to her disembodied state, Bo finds himself drawn to a peculiar little hotel where she begins to haunt his dreams. Against all odds, a stubborn Fate is determined to bring these soulmates together--beyond the grave, if necessary.
Bo isn't the only one being haunted. Five other guests have been summoned too, people whose lives the happy couple was meant to touch. A misanthropic college professor. A retired preacher. A loving husband and wife. A young man who was literally born yesterday.
Unless the balance of Fate is restored, each of these lives will be blighted by Lainy's death. But to set things right, one of the five must die...
My novel, THE MIDNIGHT HOTEL, is a dark romance of might-have-beens that crosses traditional genre lines. It's a stand-alone novel but there's potential for a
sequel that follows one of the supporting characters.
Great first paragraph. Then you roll around in the roll call of characters and forget to tell us anything about what actually happens. Without that it's just smoke and mirrors.
