Twila spent the best summer of her teenage years at Miller's Lake. She never forgot the night she saw the ghostly Bride drift across the water, or the reason she'd been inside the rickety old row boat--her first real crush, Kyle Danport.
Ten years later, Twila decides Miller's Lake is the perfect place for emotional convalescence. She figures the boy and the ghost are long gone, but it seems neither of 'em left. Both want something from her--the Bride, to solve a fifty-year-old mystery, and Kyle, to finish what they'd started on that long ago starlit night...

Excerpt from Haunted by the Past by Riley Ashford
Twila had spent her most memorable summer at Miller Lake. Her parents, already teetering on the edge of divorce, had taken separate vacations. Dad had gone on some sporting adventure in Canada and Mom had spent two months in Asia trying to find her "spiritual center". So, at the age of sixteen when going to the mall had been her life, she'd been shipped to Auntie Pearl's podunk cabin in Nowhere, USA. There she met Kyle Danport, who'd been better than any mall. Her first kiss--and the next hundred or so--had been administered by Kyle and he'd been the first boy to ever get to second base. Hell, he'd almost gotten to third.
Ten years later, with her life crumbling around her--dumped by her cheating boyfriend, fired by her lecherous boss, evicted by her bitch landlady--she decided returning to Miller Lake was just what she needed. She didn't care that she had to rent the "haunted" cottage, either.
Sighing, she turned her gaze to the lake, pinpointing about where she and Kyle had been in the rowboat when the ghost had drifted by. The Bride wasn't the only one searching for something, maybe anything, to feel whole again. I hope you're gone, Bride. I hope you found what you were looking for.
