I did not expect it, but yes there is a paranormal aspect. I just thought it was one of those is magic real or not books. Nope, it is real here.
The book takes place at two points in Felicity's life. First at 16 when she is taken from her Foundling Home. She has an uncle! She has a hot young neighbor! And before all this her bestie tells her she will marry a Duke, because gypsies know these things. That is where the magic comes on. Seems the gypsie does know.
The next part of the book is 6 years later. Felicity has a Duke on the hook and is just waiting for that proposal. But she can't forget Maxwell, her neighbor, that hot arrogant neighbor.
Oh and then there is her mother's ghost and a mysterious key. And yes the ghost is real, and the secrets are juicy.
Romance, drama, and a lot of bickering between these two lovers.
