Lynn Hones' book, "Haunted Vows" is a wonderful romance novel. Ever wonder what sets things into motion that brings about an event? Or how about correcting a past event that should not have happened? Lynn Hones takes on this topic in her novel. Malachi and Leah, Eli and Jaylyn all have a unique bond - and the haunted house is not necessarily the only thing.

The novel was a little slow to start, but once you were introduced to the characters the pages just flew by. A must read!
Jaylyn reluctantly relocates with her fiancé to a falling down antebellum mansion on the outskirts of a small Virginia town. Unfortunately he leaves her for his new boss’s daughter and informs her to do whatever she wants with the house and land. She meets Eli Jacobs, a down on his luck farmer, who grew up in the area and loves the old home and surrounding farm. Instead of selling the property, she agrees to hire Eli and together they work to get the place back to its former glory. When Hubert finds out a corporation is willing to pay whatever it takes to secure the land the house is on, he reneges and does everything in his power to thwart their efforts and make their lives miserable. Unfortunately, the house has other inhabitants who at first seem to dislike Jaylyn and Eli, but in the end prove to be the answer to all their prayers.
