What if You Got a Second Chance?

‘Breakwater Beach’ - part one of the ‘Unfinished Business’ series by Carole Ann Moleti.

Liz Levine is convinced her recently deceased husband is engineering the sequence of events that propels her into a new life. But it’s sea captain Edward Barrett, the husband that died over a century ago, who has returned to complete their unfinished business. Edward’s lingering presence complicates all her plans and jeopardizes a new relationship that reawakens her passion for life and love. What are Captain Barrett’s plans for his wife, and for the man who is the new object of her affections?

That’s the premise behind this new book by Carole Ann Moleti, a prequel to ‘The Widow’s Walk,’ the second in the series. Having read ‘The Widow’s Walk,’ I was delighted to be asked to preview ‘Breakwater Beach’. This prequel gives the main characters’ earlier story, and I was looking forward to finding more about people who left a mark on me in ‘The Widow’s Walk’.

The premise is an interesting one, with Liz Levine haunted by Edward, a ghost who married her in a previous life. She meets neighbours who also have previous lives that were entwined with those of Liz and Edward.

This story is a more fulfilling read than other paranormal romances I’ve read because it is more rounded than a simple romance. The characters have convincing backstories and current trials and tribulations which all play an important part in the novel rather than being ‘bolted on’. That kept me reading; until the end the story could take Liz more than one way, so it maintained my interest until the last page.

However, as so often with Moleti’s work, the real standout is in the characters. The author has a clear picture of what makes people tick, and a knack for characterisation that many authors will envy. The people in this story are largely ordinary, everyday folk on the surface, but each have depths and uniqueness – like most ‘ordinary’ folk – that the writing brings out. This depth of characterisation is a real highlight of the story and had me rooting for Liz.

‘Breakwater Beach’ will be available on 13 April. Details are at:

Carole Ann Moleti lives and works as a nurse-midwife in New York City, thus explaining her fascination with all things paranormal, urban fantasy, and space opera. Her nonfiction focuses on health care, politics, and women's issues. But her first love is writing science fiction and fantasy because walking through walls is less painful than running into them.

The first book in Carole's Cape Cod paranormal romance novel series, The Widow's Walk, was published by Soulmate and is now out as an e book and in print. The prequel, Breakwater Beach, will be released in April 2016.

Urban fantasies set in the world of Carole's novels have been featured in Haunted: Ten Tales of Ghosts, Seers: Ten Tales of Clairvoyance, Beltane: Ten Tales of Witchcraft, and Bites: Ten Tales of Vampires.

Carole also writes non fiction that ranges from sweet and sentimental in This Path and Thanksgiving to Christmas to edgy and irreverent in the Not Your Mother's Books: On Being a Mother and On Being a Parent.
