A special thanks to Goddess Fish Promotions for sharing this book with me. It is hands down one of the cutest books I've read recently. Told in the first person by "a woman of a certain age," I quickly identified with the main character and her attempt to make a new life for herself. Little did she know that she had her own ghost, Bob. He's been assigned to her to help her; however, neither of them know with what.
I could so see this as a movie--a la Cary Grant and Myrna Loy. Between Bob, Roz's well-meaning family, and David, the hunk of a grape grower, there are a lot of fun things going on. I'm looking forward to the next installment of this story.
Now Roz is pursuing her first love—fiction. She’s writing the ‘Bob’ books, the humorous chronicle of a crabby ‘woman of a certain age’ who moves to the wintry shores of a New York lake—and gets a ghost. And not just any ghost, mind you. Bob’s a plump, middle-aged ghost from 1920s Manhattan who swans around in a silk smoking jacket and drinks far too many martinis. Stir the good-looking grape grower who lives up the hill into this mix and you get a pretty potent screwball cocktail!
When she’s not reading, writing, hill-walking, staring mindlessly out the window at the lake or piling rocks onto her ever-diminishing lakefront, you can usually find Roz hanging out with her family, travelling, or exploring the amazing wines and wineries of the Finger Lakes.
‘Bob at the Lake’ is exclusively available as a Kindle download from Amazon. Please join Roz Murphy Author on FaceBook for updates on the many adventures of Roz, David—and Bob.
