Never Can Say Good-bye: A Paranormal Romance
Never Can Say Good-bye
Never Can Say Good-bye can be best described as a combination of What Dreams May Come and the Reincarnation of Peter Proud. It is a paranormal romance, which is set in northern Michigan.
At the turn of the century, the logging industry created millionaires and boomtowns; it also created intense rivalries and feuds. When Randolph Bellows scouts and claims a large track of land and the lumber on it for himself instead of his employer, James Ramsdell, he becomes an outcast in the community. Ignoring his status and her father’s disapproval, Sara James Ramsdell marries him; however, their happiness is short lived. Sara Jane dies during childbirth, yet her spirit remains trapped by the love bond she has with Randolph. Distraught, Randolph marries Audrey not out of love, but to have someone to care for his new born son, Randy. Even though he is very honest with her, Audrey falls in love with him and manipulates him into consummating their marriage. After Audrey becomes pregnant, Randolph feels honor bound to try to make the marriage work. They live as man and wife, yet he longs to join his soul mate. When Audrey’s jealous rages boil over onto Randy, he agrees to board up the bedroom, trapping Sara Jane‘s spirit inside. Soon after his Randy mysteriously dies.

Yet when he finds the old Bellow’s Mansion, his plans change. There is something about the house that calls to him. When he meets Randolph Bellow’s grand-daughter, he falls in love with her.

She finds the town both haunting and alluring at the same time. However, it isn’t until after that she meets Michael that she becomes more determined than ever to find a reason to leave.
