I did not find this book remotely romantic. I've read other books where there's a romance with a ghost that were very romantic. This book wasn't one of them. I just found the main character, Dexter pathetic and desperate. I found captain Lang creepy and under developed. The only redeeming characters in the book were the secondary ones, I loved Brighton and Marion. I just couldn't buy that Dexter was passing over chances for a normal healthy relationship for a ghostly obsessive one. Even the 'happy' ending just didn't strike a cord with me. It was too trite. Over all I would say that this book had a good premise but simply didn't get beyond that to being a good book.
