Synopsis

Two broken hearts, one chance to make something beautiful with the pieces...

Eight months ago, John Lawson lost his wife and best friend in a tragic accident on his family’s ranch. In the time since, he’s devoted himself to two things—taking care of his two newly motherless sons and proving that Lily’s accident was no accident. Now, he finally has hard evidence that his wife was murdered and he won’t rest until he has the killer’s blood on his hands. He doesn’t have time for anything but vengeance, especially not a crazy ghost hunter wanting to poke around the old spring on his family’s ranch.

Persephone Styles—Percy to her friends—learned about ghosts the hard way, when she was orphaned by a violent crime at the age of seven. Ever since, she’s seen spirits and been obsessed with studying souls beyond the grave. She’s in Lonesome Point to document the town’s spectral activity, but finds herself powerfully drawn to widower John Lawson and empathizing with his grieving children. For the first time in years, Percy is as riveted by the living as she’s always been by the dead and longs to be a part of John’s life.

But when one night of passion becomes something more, Percy realizes John is as haunted as she is and that the man she’s coming to love is walking a dangerous road that may end with him becoming a murderer’s next victim.

Ropes and Revenge

The perfect end to the perfect series!
April 14th, 2015
The Lonesome Point, TX series is one of my favorites. Jessie Evans knows how to write a sexy cowboy! Her writing gets better with every book and Ropes and Revenge has the most heart of the series, and the most suspense. John lost his wife, Lily, seven months ago in a tragic accident. Well, John doesn’t think it was an accident and he's been trying to prove it. Persephone is a psychic and she comes to Lonesome Point, a well-known haunted place, to help restless spirits cross over to the other side. When John meets her he's mad that she's on his land and he's rude to her. He's also attracted to her and that scares him. John gets a chance to apologize to Percy, and something sparks between them. She vows to help him find out who killed Lily. They form a fast friendship and Percy realizes that she wants him. John is dealing with the loss of his wife and finding her killer and now with the guilt of having feelings for Percy. Things heat up between John and Percy while they search for evidence of the killer. John wants to keep her safe and she instantly becomes one of the family. She's different than any woman he's ever known. Different than his late wife and he doesn’t know what to do with his feelings. Will John let himself find love again before it's too late? Will Percy be able to find the killer and help John move forward? Percy is smart and funny and John is sexy and serious. They complement each other perfectly! John learns to let laughter into his life again and Percy realizes that she's not her past. This is the ultimate second chance at love story. It's possible to find love twice in a lifetime and even if it's scary, you have to make the jump!! This was the perfect way to close out the series. There are some surprises in store for other residents of Lonesome Point and I can't wait to find out what they are! She tasted like mercy and forgetfulness, and for the first time in forever, John found himself completely lost in a moment. "Because I don’t want anyone to hear the hungry sounds you make when we're kissing except me." Percy's breath rushed out. "I make sounds?" "Sexy little whimpers and moans," John continued in that rough whisper that threatened to undo her. "Never," John said. "I like your naughty side. And your sweet side. And the side that bosses me around when I'm being an short-sighted a**hole."

Lonesome Point Texas #6

I'm sad to see this generation in Lonesome Point end. I've loved this series so much and this story didn't disappoint. Emotions are strong in this one with John moving on after losing his wife or at least he is trying to. He's having a hard time because he believes his wife was murdered, but there is no evidence to prove it. In comes Percy who can communicate with ghosts and she wants to do everything she can to help John and his sons the closure they need. The closer they get to the truth more dangerous it gets with the culprits on the lose. Can they solve the mystery before someone else losses their life? I was pretty surprised with who was behind it, didn't see it coming. I loved Percy for what she has endured to still have that sweet heart of hers. I loved the bonding she had with John's son, so sweet. I loved how the epilogue set up for the next generation and super excited to see who has the first book. Also I have to mention I love the yummy cover!!

Excellent story! After the horrific loss of his wife, John Lawson is floating through life. With two young sons depending on him he really needs to get it together. He couldn't, however, give up on the gut feeling that Lily's death wasn't an accident or his deep need for justice. When that mysterious ghost whisperer Percy Styles comes to town he is skeptical but when she begins uncovering clues that could help him prove Lily's murder he begins spending more and more time with her. As need sparks to life, he is not sure he is ready to move on just yet and has to fight those inner demons. This is a fantastic read and I would definitely recommend it to everyone.

Love lonesome point
April 14th, 2015
mm John.... I just wanna give John a big hug. after the tragic death of his wife, can he find a second chance at love? Percy, the ghost whisper or spooky (love that nickname) a great personable character that just needs a place to belong. I really enjoyed getting to know both these characters and seeing the other characters from before. the plot keeps you turning the page, waiting for what happens next. I love Jessie Evans books. I cannot put them down once started
