Description: hat do you do when a ghost mistakes you for his wife? Furious with her boyfriend, journalist Nikki O'Connell visits Paris while reassessing their relationship. What she doesn't need complicating matters is the ghost of Claude Debussy crawling into her bed every night. Yet that's exactly what happens when the dead composer believes Nikki is his wife. Journalists deal in facts, not in the supernatural, and it's that guiding rule that forces Nikki to doubt the possibility her rented apartment is haunted. Instead, she's confronted with the possibility that she's inherited the insanity that destroyed her mother.

"That's just it. I don't know how I feel about you putting your life--our lives--on hold at the drop of a phone call."
"When a patient is in distress, it's my obligation to help him. That's why I became a psychologist in the first place."
Nikki took her hand back and placed her napkin on her lap. "That's something I'm not sure I can deal with, or even want to." She held up her hand to stop Jonathan from interrupting her now that she was on track. "I need some time to sort things out. I no longer know how I feel about all this--and us--as a couple. So, I've decided to go to Paris."
