The scent of cherry pipe tobacco drifts through Angela Cabot’s kitchen as she prepares to paint the walls. She doesn’t smoke, certainly not a pipe. Who is trying to tell her something and what is the message?
Angela Cabot is trying to begin a new life after a horrible marriage. She’s in a new town, with a new job and a new house. A house which appears to be haunted by a man who smoked a cherry tobacco pipe and everywhere his spirit is scented by a cherry scent. She is visited by the previous owner, and it seems obvious to both of them that the grandfather wants to bring them together.
Although this story touches on the paranormal, it was never scary and still left you feeling good after finishing reading it. Unfortunately it is also a story you will most likely forget shortly after reading it. The character's weren't fully developed and their relationship seemed a bit rushed, probably due to the length. But regardless, this is a really sweet romance.
Overall, this short read is a mostly enjoyable one that you can treat yourself to when you only have a few moments to read.
