Review & Giveaway: That Thing You Do by Maria Geraci
That Thing You Do Whispering Bay # 1
By: Maria Geraci
Releasing April 28th, 2015
Allie Grant doesn’t believe in second chances. She does, however, believe in the power of a permanent paycheck. So when a tipster reports that the soon-to-be demolished senior center in her hometown is haunted, Allie hightails it to Whispering Bay to get the scoop that could secure her dream job at Florida! magazine. What she finds, though, is far scarier than any ghost. Cue her ex-boyfriend, sexy construction foreman Tom Donalan.
When Tom catches Allie poking around his construction site, he quickly realizes his former high school flame is just as feisty as ever. And, heaven help him, her irresistible, mile-high legs still take his breath away. But Tom isn’t about to delay the building’s demolition because of a silly ghost story.
With neither of the stubborn exes backing down from their opposing positions, sparks fly. And, underneath the surface, the fire of their old attraction burns as hot as ever. When strange things start happening with increasing frequency around town, even a tough skeptic like Tom is tested. The question is, can Allie and Tom stop fighting long enough to get to the bottom of Whispering Bay’s ghost problem—and the more important matter of mending their broken hearts?
Maria Geraci writes contemporary romance and women’s fiction with a happy ending. The Portland Book Review called her novel, The Boyfriend of the Month Club, “immensely sexy, immensely satisfying and humorous.” Her fourth novel, A Girl Like You, was nominated for Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA ® award. She lives in north Florida with her family, which includes a very needy chihuahua, an extremely needy dachshund and a not-so-needy cat (guess which one she likes best?).

This is the first time I've read anything by Maria Geraci and I can honestly say that I enjoyed it. It had some wonderful characters and humor in it that helped move the story along. I felt for Allie. What happened to her would have broken any young girls heart. But sometimes life sucks. Even though Tom broke her heart, (not that Allie will admit) I didn't dislike him for it. He did what he needed to do. I think you'll really enjoy the cast of characters in this story. So many of them to really like. The only thing I will say that I notice is that it read somewhat like woman's fiction. I don't know if that's because also writes it or not. But there is enjoy romance in the story to hold either fan. I can't wait to read the next story in the series. Happy reading!
