Judging A Book By It's Cover-Results (#2)

A Date with the Other Side (Cuttersville, #1)

Initial Thoughts: My guess is it is two total opposites coming together and falling in love. Perhaps one is a chic person and the other a blue collar worker. The cover doesn't give you much to work with.

Results: I had the two total opposites right.  The rest not so much, Shelby is a young woman who lives her quirky life giving ghost tours.  Boston is a corporate style type of man who is suave and sophisticated.  Opposites attract and with the help from ghosts, the two find themselves thrown together often.  I had no idea this had a ghost element to the story which was a fun surprise.

Review:
A Date with the Other Side by Erin McCarthy
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Shelby Tucker has always just gone with the flow, she married young and divorced her high school sweetheart, not because they fought or disliked one another, he just wasn't it. Shelby has never expected more than what life has to offer and one of those is giving ghost tours to tourists.

Boston Macnamara doesn't know why his boss sent him to Cuttersville, but he is not happy about it. Point in fact waking up nude to have a pixie of a woman checking out his goods and talking in crypted speak that he can't wrap his head around. What he does know though is he would like to get closer to Shelby but with no commitment. Shelby wants a fling, but she maybe a little to hometown girl to allow it to happen.

The story is hilarious in the beginning, has a great opening chapter. It is fun and quirky but towards the end loses a little of it's charm. Overall a good story
