Title: Kelsey: Ghost Mountain Ranch


Author: Jan Scarbrough


Voice Actor/Narrator: Traci Odom


Genre: Contemporary Western Romance/Mystery


Book Blurb:


Ghost Mountain Dude Ranch nestles in the white-capped mountains of Montana. It’s an idyllic setting, a place for romance to blossom. But old secrets are stirring in Blue Sky country. Three couples reach for their chance at romance, but murder, mystery, and long-concealed truths threaten their loves, and their lives.


Kelsey Heston is more than just a pretty face. There’s a whip-smart brain behind those model-beautiful looks. She’s been running the family’s Kentucky horse farm, but now plans to use those brains to improve the tourist trade at her grandfather’s Montana dude ranch. But tangled accounting books aren’t the only complication Kelsey has to deal with. What is her old college sweetheart, Max Lee, doing here? The man who’d broken her heart when he’d put family duty before her. Had Kelsey made a mistake coming to Ghost Mountain Ranch?


Chicago lawyer Max Lee has always done what was expected of him. He’d gone to law school, worked at the same firm as his father, and married the law partner’s daughter, just as it had been planned since their childhood. His only aberration had been his beautiful college sweetheart, the girl he’d dropped to follow his family expectations. But after the sudden death of Max’s wife, his father-in-law makes one more request of Max: go to Ghost Mountain Ranch to find his long-lost sister. But his search for one woman turns up another he’d never expected to see again, maybe the only woman he’d ever truly loved.


But something dark is happening at Ghost Mountain Ranch, where the past is reaching out in dangerous ways to haunt the living. Max is not only stirring up old feelings in Kelsey, but old secrets of the ranch’s inhabitants. Secrets someone might be willing to kill to keep. Can they finally lay the old ghosts to rest, or will the echoes of a decades-old murder destroy their second chance at love?

Author Biography:


The author of two popular Bluegrass romance series, Jan writes heartwarming contemporary stories about home and family, single moms, and children. Living in the horse country of Kentucky makes it easy for Jan to add small town, Southern charm to her books and the excitement of a Bluegrass horse race or a competitive horse show.


The Ghost Mountain Ranch series is a contemporary western series with a good blend of mystery and happily-ever-after romance. The Dawsons of Montana is another four-book contemporary western series.


Jan leaves her contemporary voice behind with two paranormal gothic romances, Timeless and Tangled Memories, a Romance Writers of America (RWA) Golden Heart finalist. Her historical romance, My Lord Raven, is a medieval story of honor and betrayal.


A member of Novelist, Inc., Jan self-publishes her books with her husband’s help.


Jan lives in Louisville, Kentucky, with one rescued dog, two rescued cats, and a husband she rescued twenty-four years ago.


Narrator Biography:



I just have to laugh, as after many years as an on-camera actor, I have stumbled gracefully into the creative career of my dreams as an audiobook narrator and voice-artist.  As a veteran of stage, film and television, I have played everything from a tree to an Irish Setter to a lawyer, but as a narrator of more than 320 audiobooks I have expanded that repertoire to include dragons, trolls, witches and devilishly handsome humans.  Welcome to my world of romance, witchcraft, devilry and often a tempting bite of vampirism. (Pun fully and delightfully intended!)
