Adele Harris is cursed. The successful writer has not had a good date since her ex told her she had a fat ass and walked out, periodically returning to leave items on her porch. But now her sister needs her and she has to go home to Texas.

Zach Zemaitis is a former star quarterback, but a concussion ended his career. He is now living in his late wife’s hometown raising his daughter and coaching the high school football team. He will never be tricked into marriage again.

When Adele’s sister Sheri’s husband left her for a dental assistant, she moved back to their former hometown in Texas. Sheri is pregnant, so Adele comes to take care of Sheri and her daughter. The last person she expects to see is the guy she fell for in college, who dumped her for his ex, Devon, her nemesis since childhood.

This last installment of Ms. Gibson’s series about four authors who are close friends and unlucky in love is the best of all of them. I always liked the quirky Adele with her books about fairies and her stalker ex-boyfriend Dwayne. Zach hurt her and she is not about to let him hurt her again, but cannot help herself. Zach got married the first time because his ex deliberately got pregnant and is determined not to get caught again, but death has not changed Devon from the nasty person she was in life and, she is determined to make Zach and Adele miserable from the grave. I love the punishment Heaven inflicts on her. Thankfully, her plans backfire, but not without a lot of ups and downs. I also liked the subplot of Sheri’s problematic pregnancy and impending divorce, too bad they could not have turned Devon’s ghost lose on her ex too.
