More About the Author

Jane Davitt is English, and has been living in Canada with her husband, two children, and two cats, since 1997. Writing and reading are her main occupations but if she ever had any spare time she might spend it gardening, walking, or doing cross stitch. She's recently taken up yoga and loves discovering her ability to bend.

Jane has been writing since 2002 and wishes she'd started earlier. She is a huge fan of SF, fantasy, erotica, and mystery novels and has a tendency to get addicted to TV shows that get cancelled all too soon.

She owns over 4,000 books, rarely gives any away, but is happy to loan them, and is of the firm opinion that there is no such thing as 'too many books'.

Read the books in order: 1. Laying a Ghost. 2. Giving Up the Ghost. This is the third book.

This isn't really a tale of partners and lovers taking on the paranormal. It's more of a Paranormal Cozy, with two guys wonderfully in love and partners in all ways who just happen to have to deal with ghosts now and then. They live on a tiny, quiet Scottish isle that sees some tourists in the summer but is cold and inhospitable in the winter--but beloved by them both.

John has lived there all his life and loves it, except for the fact that it wasn't gay-friendly so he was closeted, and lonely until Nick, an American, moves into the house inherited by his uncle. Their relationship is very passionate, but more than that, it is deep and tender and loving. That is the back-bone of these books, and it is worth reading for that alone. These are private men, and it is touching to be able to see into their lives.

In this book, Nick's young half-brother, Josh, has grown up and is coming for a visit before he starts college. All goes well until old legends and ghosts are stirred up in a big way and Nick and John are forced to deal with them.

As with the last book, there are some little threads that aren't neatly tied up, but then, the bits of plot aren't meant to be the focus, I think. The wonderful relationship between Nick and John are the main thing. The plot is strong enough to carry things along, though. Definitely enough excitement goes on to keep the small island's inhabitants talking for years to come, anyway.

But the fireworks are mostly between Nick and John, and it's more of a nice, comfy fire in the fireplace at home than any big showy conflagration. They are such a dear couple that I would definitely love to see more of them, even though this third book ends on a very good, strong note.
