Waiting on Wednesday: Maybe This Time

This fun, weekly meme, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, is a way to highlight upcoming releases that we are looking forward to reading.  Here is one that I am looking forward to:

Maybe This Time
by Jennifer Cruise
Release Date: August 31, 2010

Andie Miller is ready to move on in life.  She wants to marry her fiance and leave behind everything in her past, especially her ex-husband, North Archer.  But when Andie tries to gain closure with him, he asks one final favour of her before they go their separate ways forever.  A very distant cousin of his has died and left North as the guardian of two orphans who have driven out three nannies already, and things are getting worse.  He needs a very special person to take care of the situation and he knows Andie can handle anything.  When Andie meets the two children she quickly realizes things are much worse than she feared.  The place is a mess, the two children, Alice and Carter, aren't your average delinquents, and the creepy old house where they live is being run by the worst housekeeper since Mrs. Danvers. What's worse, Andie's fiance thinks this is all a plan by North to get Andie back, and he may be right.  Andie's dreams have been haunted by North since she arrived at the old house.  And that's not the only haunting.

What follows is a hilarious adventure in exorcism, including a self-doubting parapsychologist, an annoyed medium, her Tarot-card reading mother, an avenging ex-mother-in-law, and, of course, a jealous fiance.  And just when she thinks things couldn't get more complicated, North shows up on the doorstep making her wonder if maybe this time things could be different between them.

If Andie can just get rid of all the guests and ghosts, she's pretty sure she can save the kids, and herself, from the past.  But fate just might have another thing in mind.
