Rhys teaches paranormal studies (and history) at UCLA and is also a ghost hunter. So what that he has never actually seen a ghost before - there must be a first time some time! He stays at his friend's house to investigate local haunting. Friend's hot looking nephew Sam, a cop, thinks it's a huge waste of time. Soon things get dangerous and to stay alive Rhys has to solve a murder!

One thing I always appreciate when I read Josh Lanyon's books is how much fun I have when I read them. I was sitting here, drinking my evening glass of wine, and when I got to the second page I found myself smiling. And this is what Josh always does to me! It feels really good when the corners of your mouth start climbing upwards. Doesn't it?
This story has perfectly balanced romance, excitement and humor. The storytelling is, as usual, flawless. His stories for me are so contagious his books should be quarantined!

Rhys Davies is on a mission to study paranormal activity in a creepy old house on the California coast. Invited to stay at a friend's home while he investigates the house next door, the last thing Rhys expects is to run into police officer Sam Devlin, his friend's nephew, who also is staying there. The attraction between Rhys - who is a more vulnerable character - and Sam - who is rougher-round-the-edges - simmers until sparks fly. You cannot help but cheer them on. The mystery is filled with twists and turns and it will keep you hooked. Ghost of a Chance is masterfully written mystery by Josh Lanyon. It's a feel-good, spooky treasure to savor.

The hero in this story is sympathetic and engaging as only Josh Lanyon can produce. His love interest/second hero is a big alpha sweetie-pie. Their reluctant journey to love is fun, funny and well worth your time.

No-one expects to be thrown to the floor and frisked when first entering a house for a weekend stay. However this is how Rhys ( ghost hunter) and Sam (cop) meet. The relationship they then have is quirky, amusing and sensual. All this while trying to determine whether a local property really is haunted. Josh Lanyon manages to give the reader two charismatic but quite different characters intertwined with a great mystery story. I look forward to reading every one of his novels and this one does not disappoint.

This is another fantastic and fun read from Mr Lanyon.
The characters are well drawn and likeable and the story is excellent, well paced and totally satisfying.
I'm really glad to be able to buy A Ghost of a Chance as a standalone title.

Rhys is a history professor with an interest in parapsychology. Sam is a cop. They are more or less matched by Oliver, the owner of Berkeley's house, a haunted mansion that Rhys wants to investigate for a book he's writing. At first the two seem to clash: Sam thinks Rhys is Oliver's last fling; he doesn't believe in paranormal phenomena; he doesn't want Rhys to walk into Berkeley's house. Rhys is attracted to Sam, but at the same time he can't stand Sam's ways.

The paranormal plot has also a bit of mystery. The haunted house is creepy, as are Rhys' walks in the woods at night and the apparitions he believes he sees. The two men find their way to each other physically quicker than their way to each other's trust. Both are not forthcoming and open and they keep something to themselves. It's not the stubborn miscommunication that comes from misunderstandings, it has more to do with a natural reserve on their part.

There's also another lovely story in the background: Oliver and Thaddeus'. They are both painters, they've grown up together, they love each other. They're not young anymore, but Oliver keeps having flirts with younger, pretty men and breaking Thaddeus' heart repeatedly. It was moving and a sort of bonus story into the main plot line.

I think you've read me tell repeatedly that Lanyon's writing is superb and always worth reading, so yeah, again. There are a few editing errors that come from the earlier anthology version (many other errors were fixed in this edition). Adding the chapters was the right decision. They correspond to the section breaks of the original version, but as chapters they give the story a better organization.

After crying on the shoulder of a gallery owner about his ruined love life, Professor Rhys Davies receives an invitation to study the ghostly Berkeley Manor. Oliver, the owner, has a home on the grounds of the reputed haunted mansion. An opportunity for Rhys to add a chapter to his up coming book on haunting along the California coast. What Rhys does not realize is he will be sharing the house with Oliver's nephew, cop Sam Devlin. A mountain of a man, and not a very nice one, if their first meeting is any indication.

This is a short story, that has lots of things that go bump in the night. A relationship that blossoms under trying circumstances. A fun, well crafted, creepy read, just what you need on a dark night.
