Andrew Sharpai is looking for love without a lot of complications. He just wants to be truly in love and happy, but he tends to find women who are a little on the nutty side. When LaRae DuFont enters his life, he knows that she’s the one he’s supposed to spend his life with. Unfortunately, fate has other plans, leaving Andrew to wander through life again as a broken man, haunted by LaRae’s spirit each time he drinks himself into a stupor.

Andrew settles in Pocatello, Idaho, where he meets Iris Winkle, a former Satanist turned Wiccan. After leaving her abusive husband, Iris is raising her eight-year-old daughter, Lily, on her own. As Andrew becomes deeper involved with the Winkles, they find themselves on the run. Iris’s ex-husband casts a curse on them that follows the couple no matter where they go.

Frantic to find peace, Andrew and Iris search for some way to break the curse, but nothing works. Under tremendous stress, their relationship almost crumbles until they find help in the most unlikely of places—for these two, at least.

The unforgettable and somewhat quirky characters—along with an unusual plot—make The Haunting of Andrew Sharpai an enjoyable read. You’ll never really know where the story is headed, which makes it even more fun.

Andrew Sharpai is an average guy who’s a little on the insecure side. He wouldn’t stand out in a crowd, but that’s what makes him stand out as a character in this novel. His very ordinariness is what makes him such an endearing character.

Iris Winkle, on the other hand, is a little hard to like at times, but you have to admire her desire to get her life back on track, no matter what she has to do to accomplish her goal. She’s lost in life, and you’ll root for her to find her way back to the light.

Lily Winkle is the most delightful child I’ve come across in fiction in quite some time. Mr. Peterson must know an eight-year-old to be able to draw her character so well. From the way she says Andrew’s name to the way she dresses her cat in doll clothes, she’ll make you smile.

Throughout The Haunting of Andrew Sharpai, we’re reminded that not everything is as it seems. And that certainly holds true—especially near the end. Though some readers might not like how the story comes together in the end, I was both surprised and delighted by the unexpected conclusion. But with a splash of danger and a sinister atmosphere, The Haunting of Andrew Sharpai is just as enchanting as it is intriguing.
