For me it didn't rank higher for one main reason: I really wanted Laine to stick up for herself a little more. I get that there are all sorts of people in the world, including people who truly do allow themselves to get pushed around, but I don't really like those characters. I can only handle it so much before I get too annoyed. For me, it stopped working when her father and stepmother intrude really badly into her life for reasons that are incredibly selfish and unkind (won't be more specific here because of spoilers) and she doesn't do anything about it. I also wished that we had gotten a better sense of exactly what was going on with Ian/Carly.
Still, it was a light, clean read (unless you object to a married woman thinking about sex a lot--never graphically or descriptively, more just, "Hey, we had a lot of fun on that desk" sorts of things).
Oh, one more thing--there are a few copyediting errors that are hard to ignore. Particularly, there's one spot where the main character's name changes for a couple of pages. Overall the copyediting isn't bad, but that part is rather noticeable. :)
Enter the ghost. Madeleine was Sid's first wife who died as a young woman. Madeleine, who appears only to her granddaughter, Laine, has come to escort Sid from the mortal world to the great beyond. However, there's a teensy, little problem. Sid's body has gone missing. The adventure begins.
As Madeleine's story unfolds, Laine sees the reflection in her own life. She still loves Ian. She still longs to have children. It's only when she moves to the small community of Rose Arbor that her life begins to make sense.
As a life-long resident of Washington State, I appreciated the setting, especially the interweaving of Chinook winds throughout the story. Tate even managed to include a couple of scenes set in my part of Washington, the dry side, east of the Cascade Mountains.
After my initial confusion sorting out the characters, I enjoyed this book. It's a satisfying read with dashes of humor and an engaging heroine. A Ghost of a Second Chance will take you on a journey; one with a number of unexpected twists and turns. But when you arrive at your destination, you'll be glad you went along for the ride.
