Storm Swept by Linda Palmer

So there are several indie books that I have read over the years. Storm Swept ranks really high on my favorites list. Here's the description from amazon:

When Jenny Jefferson agrees to help her sister open a B&B, she doesn't know that Jase Edwards will be working there, too. Jenny and Jase have history--an angry encounter at her sister's wedding four years ago. This time around their chemistry is as intense and supercharged as the lightning snaking down from the storm clouds overhead. Not even a mischievous house ghost can distract them from each other. But something far more sinister lurks in the shadows, and its eye is on Jenny. Can she and Jase unravel the mystery of the house's tragic past before history repeats itself?

I find this book to be really cute. It is a great book if you are looking for a fun quick read. It almost reminds me of some of the quirky ya romance books with a bit of a paranormal twist. Jenny is the level headed sister in the family. Thus she is always practical and has everything planned out. Jase is a laid back guy that has a not so good history with Jenny. They had a less than stellar encounter at Jenny's sister's wedding when she married Jase's brother. 

Since both of Jennie's sisters married and left their career/school plans behind Jenny feels all the pressure from her family to stick to the plan and not fall in love. However, love finds her. The twist in the story being that there was a tragic death in the B&B house and the ghost has decided to repeat the scenario. 

I think this was a great beach read or just a quick weekend read. The plot is simple but interesting. The romance is a little quick for my taste but is a really good one. I guess the two of them have history so things aren't as sudden as they look. I give the story a 4/5. Support independent authors and check this book out! It's also a really reasonable price for Kindle!
