Remy Galway and her daughter Olivia are rebuilding their life after a failed marriage in a 300 year old cottage in historic Cold Spring Harbor, Long Island. Little do they know, another occupant is lurking in the haven of their own home. Will the After House be their shelter or their tomb?

My take on this book:
Eli Gaspar was perfectly happy with his living arrangements staying in a three hundred year old cottage with an eccentric old man, but when the cottage is rented to Remy Galway and her young daughter Olivia he doesn't care for it.You see Eli is a ghost who doesn't really remember a lot about his past, but with Remy and Olivia in the house that is changing.

Remy thought she had a good marriage but after the birth of her daughter Olivia things changed and now she finds herself starting over in the town of Cold Spring Harbor. A new yoga business and dealing with sharing custody of Olivia takes up plenty of her time, so when things start to occur in her home she can't help but wonder if she might  be going crazy. 

I think The After House is one of the best "haunting" stories I have ever read! Michael Phillip Cash blends together romance,suspense a splash of mystery, ghosts, angels, history and more than a few laughs to make for a page turning story that I honestly hated to see end! I loved the characters of Remy, Olivia, Eli and Hugh. There was a strength with Remy that permeated the pages, I just knew that things work work out for the best where she was concerned. The relationship that developed between Remy and Hugh was great and seemed very realistic. Olivia was a wonderful young girl and her interactions with Eli had me laughing on more than one occasion. Eli's story certainly tugged at my heart, he was really a ghost with a conscience and I couldn't help but wonder if he would ever find his way home. Richly detailed writing, allowed the characters to captivate and the plot to move along at breakneck speed. On a scale of one to five I would easily give The After House a six because it's just that good!
