Roxanne Ferris is a woman who writes a blog, but she has a tragedy burdening her shoulders and so is best selling author Claudette Grayson, although there are decades in age between them, all they want is to escape from the memories haunting them. This led them to meet when Claudette asked for someone to be her caregiver over her last summer, she is unwell and has not got long to live, whereas Roxanne is younger but weighed down by her world. Both women both write and find they in common, but as they spend more time together, other things come to the fore as well.

Claudette is determined to write one last story and she wants Roxanne to help her with it, so they discuss the setting, timeframe, characters and the storyline, in between these conversations, Claudette gives Roxanne her notes so that she can start the task of writing it and it being up to her expectations. As the women dive into this story, they bond over it, however when Claudette goes to bed, Roxanne starts to experience unusual things in the house and starts to think that it is all in her head, so she tries her best to ignore it.

As time goes on, Roxanne starts to hear and see one of the fictional characters in the house and at some point, the apparition starts to talk to her and it all begins to feel a bit too real. Who is the stranger, what is his story and is it just a coincidence that he resembles one of the characters in this story? Will this summer be the undoing of both women, or will their sanity come out of the other side unscathed, stronger and more resilient, bringing about the peace they both so desperately crave? This is an emotional rollercoaster as the supernatural and fictional combine to create a fantastical story of grief, life, love and loss which will ensnare you hook, line and sinker from start to finish.

This story seems like a dream at first. Getting paid to take care of an aging author, a chance to pick that person’s brain and listens to an accomplished story-teller. See? Sounds like a dream. But wait…there’s a twist. The house seems to have a story to tell as well. And then there’s the vision? The ghost? The guy that Roxanne can see and hear and speak to! What’s his story?! Is he a figment of her imagination due to her personal trauma? Can Roxanne save him unlike the others she couldn’t save? Will her life always be one traumatic story after another?

Famous aging author Claudette Grayson needs help. Help getting out her very last story so everyone knows the truth. Claudette is draw to Roxanne, but is there enough time to find the truth?

This is not my first story by this author and I always enjoy reading her stories. Definitely recommend this author and this standalone.

When Roxanne applied to work as a caregiver for Claudette she never thought it would be a life-changing opportunity. Claudette is best known as bestselling author Claudette Grayson. Roxanne does not have much time to get to know Claudette but they formed a bond that would not be broken even after Claudette passes. Shortly after Roxanne agrees to help finish Claudette’s latest book, strange things start to happen to make Roxanne question her sanity. When the “fictitious” world starts to collide with what Roxanne believes is the real world anything is bound to happen. Once Roxanne explains to Claudette what has been happening, Claudette asks Roxanne to help save Phillip. Little did Roxanne know that it would send her into a totally different universe.
This is my first book by the author and I am a new reader of time-travel/alternate universe. This book kept me engaged and eager to keep reading. I enjoyed the growth of all of the characters as well as the progression of the plot.

Roxanne had experienced some deep heartache and Lisa so when the opportunity roses for her to be caretaker to one her of favourite authors , Claudette Grayson , she jumps at the opportunity, I mean hello who wouldn’t !?

Claudette is 93 and she has lived a good life but now with her age , damaged hip and the onset of dimensia , she needs care but won’t leave her home and it’s comforts and she recognises something in Roxanne and asks her to help finish a book before it’s too late ….

Roxanne cat turn the offer down and so starts a journey that has me in tears more often than not. Roxanne is riddled with guilt and my heart breaks for her with the “visits” she gets from Derek and Aiden and my heart really did feel like Humpty Dumpty 💔

This is one of those reads that haunts you long after you’ve read the last page ❣️📕

This book is definitely one of a kind, it is everything in one! It has romance, mystery, time traveling, and a little bit of thrill. Characters in this novel deal with loss, and love. Some issues arise related to time travel, and a possible ghost. An unexpected twist occurs and despite the twists and turns, this novel ends beautifully!

I LOVE the cover art of this book. Admittedly it was what attracted me to the book in the first place, the author was a close second.
I have read several books from this author and as usual, this didn’t disappoint. The storyline was unique and drew me in from the first few pages. The book itself is fairly short and reads quickly, so not once did my interest fade. What I’ve come to love from this author’s writing is the strong, lovable characters you become invested in.
If you’re interested in a well written, captivating storyline… give this book a go!

Roxanne takes a job as a caregiver to Claudette Grayson, an author who is on her deathbed. Claudette asks Roxanne to be a ghost writer and finish her final book. Prior to this, Roxanne was reeling from a loss so great, she was struggling to get past it. She is hoping this new job will help.

As Roxanne begins to read through notes and get things in order for writing, she finds strange things happening in the house. The music box plays music, a fresh rose is left behind…she hears voices. But whose? Could it be the character from the book she is helping to write? Is it someone else who has passed?

This is a book with quite a few twists and turns – ones you would never guess! The ending was not what I anticipated – good one, Nikki Barrett!
