Alice won’t be tied down, not to a man, a place, or a house plant. Even her job as a traveling nurse allows her to go where she wants, when she wants. And men? She enjoys their company, but when a man gets too close, it must be time to ghost him.

James is a manwh*** who lives for the no-strings hookup. James thinks he has it made with Alice - until he falls hard for her and starts second-guessing his playboy ways.

When James and Alice discover a 100-year-old journal in the walls of an old house she has inherited, they learn to fall in love alongside the writer of the diary.

But do they have a ghost of a chance of making this relationship work?

The Art of Ghosting is a standalone in a series of interconnecting novels. All of the books are set in the small, fictional town of Peacock, and the characters cross over from book to book. Although the books are linked, you can jump in and start reading with any book.

Dual POV, contemporary romance with strong historical elements.
