Maybe This Time

Andie Miller is ready to move on in life. She wants to marry her
fiancé 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 favor 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

When Andie meets the two children she quickly realizes things
are much worse than she feared. The place is a mess, the children,
Carter and Alice, 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
fiancé 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-inlaw, and, of course, her
jealous fiancé. 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 might just have another thing in mind…
