A psychic interior designer reluctantly agrees to renovate a sexy investor's abandoned hotel on Loch Sheldrake, a lake rumored to have once been the mob's body dumping ground. Interior designer Kate Bardach loves her single girl's lifestyle, living in Manhattan and spending weekends at her lake house. She's passionate about her career, too - reinventing old buildings. But there are some projects she can't take on because of the spirits trapped inside. Kate is psychic - she sees dead people. Marco Lareci is one of Wall Street's most successful investment brokers who's achieved all of his life's goals - except for finding his soulmate. His latest project, an abandoned resort on Loch Sheldrake, needs a savvy designer to transform the crumbling complex into a boutique hotel. When Marco meets Kate, he can't believe his luck. She's the perfect match for his business and his heart. Marco's body excites Kate even more than does his renovation project. But he wants more than a casual relationship, and she's not willing to give up her freedom. Plus, the haunting at Marco's resort, a bona fide poltergeist, affects her on an intensely personal level. Kate's aunt disappeared from the place 50 years ago. Will the spirit doom Kate and Marco's love, or drive them closer together? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joshua Saulter.

'Slow prose', that is, as the living of the two thousandth write, prose - an attempt to portray what we saw in the mirror the time comes: stories about successful clerk who is suddenly homeless drifter and begins life anew, with amazement watching himself; pro Crimean resort of bliss, which the narrator suddenly turned inside out, causing him to survive almost any suicide languor, about the life of the inhabitants of the usual Moscow court, pictures that suddenly start to sound like a leaky canvas, and out of the cracks of the black stretch canvas drafts unknown - frightening and fascinating - reality, about the night of hotel girl and her weird client with ascertaining what is actually happening to them, and other stories. In other words, prose about the 'ordinary' life 'ordinary' people, each of which - a mystery for others and for ourselves.
