Looking for Love in All the Haunted Places

Berkley. May 2024. 416p. ISBN 9780593336656. pap. $18. PARANORMAL ROMANCE
Lucky Hart can read people; looking into someone’s eyes reveals their worries, hopes and dreams, and even their deepest secrets. Unfortunately, this talent has isolated Lucky from her family, friends, and romantic relationships. When she discovers that a production company is making a reality show about people staying at Hennessee House, a haunted mansion that has run off every other caretaker, she immediately applies. When filming starts, Lucky meets the team and feels a connection, especially to Maverick Phillips. Lucky is asexual and has never felt instant chemistry or physical attraction to someone before, especially not this quickly. But as she and Maverick explore what’s brewing between them, Hennessee House begins to fight for Lucky’s full attention. This hauntingly funny rom-com is filled with interesting, fully developed characters (including the house). The dialogue is witty, and the interactions between characters are realistic to the personalities the author has created.
VERDICT Kann’s (The Romantic Agenda) latest is a fun, occasionally deep romance that will draw readers in and, like Hennessee House, won’t let them go until the very end.
