As a mystery romance, it is wonderful with protag Debra at 37,ready to accept her 'old maid school teacher' status rather than settle, finally meeting a mysterious man who deserves her. She falls for him in spite of his 'work' that keeps him away for long periods, and in spite of pressure from friends and family to demand more information from him. When she discovers she is pregnant, he returns just in time to give her the sense of security and trust in the future that she needs. Of course then he has to leave again, and she has to fight outside pressure to give up on him.
I had no doubt he would return in time because this is a mystery 'romance', and even after I began to suspect the twist coming, I was too hooked on the characters to give up before I knew how it would end. It ended with yet another twist, but you'll have to read the book to find out how either of them kept me hooked.
With all the rentals in Rachael Crossing already filled, Debra resigns herself to renting a broken down old house that has seen better days. To say the house needed fixing up, is an understatement. Debra doesn’t mind getting it repaired, but she’s not thrilled to hear that the house has a reputation for being haunted. She doesn’t believe in that stuff, but she’s bothered that nobody will even enter her house after she makes it presentable.
Her sister begs her to reconsider her summer plans and tries to convince Debra to come home with her. Debra refuses. At thirty-seven years old, she’s intent on getting away and being on her own. When she meets the handsome Ethan Burke, she knows she has made the right choice and her life takes a major turn for the better.
Ethan and Debra’s romance hits a few snags. It doesn’t help that her house continues to scare people away. Unlike everyone else, Debra is not frightened off so easily. Instead, she tries to do some research to learn the truth about the house, but wonders if she would have been better off not knowing.
This is actually one of the author’s older novels, Ghostfire, which was released in 1983. It has been rewritten with the updated version in For Everything A Season. I bet this book will be a huge success.
The beginning of the book alternates chapters between 1692 and 1982, then most of the story is told in 1982. At the end, it skips ahead to the year 2022. Quite often I get confused when books jump between years, but not with this one. It all flowed beautifully and truly enhanced the story. I was actually a bit disappointed there wasn’t more story for 1692. I didn’t realize how interested I was becoming in the witch trials.
This book reminds me very much of the old gothic romances and mysteries I used to love so much. It mixes spooky, mystery and romance to perfection. There is enough to keep readers on the edge of their seats and guessing until the end. Just enough mystery to make you want to read this with the lights turned on. Readers will not want to stop reading until they get to the last page. It makes you think and leaves you craving for more.
This is definitely an author I will keep reading and I will check out her backlist.

I was introduced to Sharon Pape through her cozy mysteries and was very excited to hear she was re-releasing her 1983 novel Ghostfire that she updated a bit and turned it into For Everything A Season.
I haven’t read a Gothic Romancel in a very long time and I escaped right into this one. What a fantastic story.
Deborah Colby was looking for a little escape herself. She thought spending the summer away from her overbearing sister would be a good idea so she decided to work as a camp counselor in a place called Rachel’s Crossing. Her sister was very disappointed, they always spent their summers together and she was bound and determined to find Deborah the perfect man to marry. When they traveled to Rachel’s Crossing to find a place for Deborah to rent for the summer her sister was so happy to hear there wasn’t really any place available. She thought he sister would cancel her plans but Deborah was determined. The real estate agent said there was one place but it needed a lot of work. Deborah thought the place was acceptable if some basic work was done before she returned for the summer and signed the lease.
Deborah never realized that when she signed on the dotted line how much her life was about to change. The house not only needed maintenance, the house had secrets and everyone in town thought it was haunted. Deborah didn’t believe it, and shortly after moving in she met Ethan Burke. She was immediately drawn to him and was so happy so came to Rachel’s Crossing.
I started reading this story and couldn’t put it down. The story starts out in 1692, the time of the Salem witch trials and then the chapters go back and forth between 1692 and 1982. I was drawn right in. The story was full of intrigue and mystery and a very interesting romance. At the end it jumps into the future a bit with a twist the still gives me an eerie feeling. I wanted to know more.
If this was one of Sharon Pape’s first stories all I can say is Wow! It sure shows me her not so cozy side and I absolutely loved it.
