Was getting out, getting away, enough?
“Hi everyone! My name is Carole Ann Moleti and I live in New York City. I write urban fantasy and paranormal romance (among other things) and I’m so excited about the recent release of The Widow’s Walk, part of the Unfinished Business series. Like my heroine Liz, I love the desolate beauty of a beach in the winter. For her, it’s an obsession. Ghosts don’t mind the cold. In all of the Unfinished Business series novels, the setting is one of the main characters—and off season on Cape Cod is quiet, with an ethereal quality you can sense better without the traffic, bustle of family activities, and the voices of happy children.
I‘m really looking forward to the Spring, after which comes Summer. If you like ghost stories, check out the first two installments of my Cape Cod paranormal romance series. I will be giving away a copy of each as one of the prizes for participants in this blog hop.
In the first installment of the series, Breakwater Beach (published in Haunted: Ten Tales of Ghosts)
Liz is trying to recover from the untimely death of her husband. She attributes the visits of a dream lover to grief, but when she moves into the dilapidated Victorian in the historic sea captains’ town of Brewster, the dream becomes very real, jeopardizing her chances at a new life—and a new love.
Breakwater Beach is a novella in Haunted, but I’ve novelized it and hope to re release it in 2015.
The Widow’s Walk was released by Soulmate in late 2014. It is set in the same place, the year after the events in Breakwater Beach.

The Widow’s Walk:
Silk rustled as she ran her hands over the dress. The lavender scent deepened as Elisabeth swirled around inside, Her mind went numb as the ghost took control. She slipped out of her clothes and stood naked in front of the mirror. She put up her hair, preening for her husband, before she stepped into the middle of the deep green skirts and pulled them up over her waist, slipped her arms into the sleeves, and twisted them behind her back to fasten the buttons. She used the buttonhook to do up the shoes, then peered out into the hallway.
Liz bundled the sweat suit into her arms, along with the soap and paper goods, and hurried to the attic door. It wasn’t until she placed her hand on the banister and started up the steep staircase to the roof that Elisabeth’s needling eased. Like an addict in the throes of withdrawal, just the promise of being up there, her spirit communing with the long lost sea captain, offered relief.
Hot – lots of passion and chemistry both physical and mental, open door sex, yet language and descriptions are tame.
Mike and Liz Keeny are newlyweds, new parents, and the proprietors of the Barrett Inn, an 1875 Victorian on Cape Cod, which just happens to be haunted. By their own ghosts. The Inn had become an annex of Purgatory, putting Mike, Liz, and their infant son in danger. Selling the historic seaside bed and breakfast was the only answer, one that Liz and her own tortured specter refused to consider. Were they doomed to follow the same path that led to disaster in their previous lives? Was getting out, getting away, enough?
Carole Ann Moleti is a nurse-midwife in New York City, thus explaining her fascination with paranormal and urban fantasy that infuses everything she writes. The Widow’s Walk is her newest fiction. Excerpts from her urban fantasy novels have appeared in several of the Ten Tales anthologies. Segments of Carole’s memoirs, Someday I’m Going to Write a Book: Diary of an Urban Missionary and Karma, Kickbacks, and Kids range from the sweet and inspirational in A Quilt of Holidays and the Shifts Anthology to the edgy and irreverent in Not Your Mother’s Book: On Being a Woman and On Parenting.
