This was a very predictable romance thriller novel. But it also had some funny parts. When recently widowed Marielle Brandt inherits an old haunted apartment building in Chicago, she moves her two kids and finds an assortment of tenants who are just like her, broke and no where else to live. Of course there is Simon Zebriskie, who is the love interest, who resists at first because of the age difference. An easy fun read.
