Episode 2: "The Ivory Key"
WHO YOU GONNA CALL?! Buckle your sheet belts for this special Halloween treat as we read Rita Estrada’s 1987 Harlequin novel “The Ivory Key”, a book about finding incontrovertible proof of an afterlife and immediately boning it. If you’ve got it, haunt it! A photojournalist recovering from a traumatic experience under profoundly vague circumstances retreats to her own private Minnesota island, which turns out to be infested by a spectral Frenchman. She discovers she’s a dead ringer for his 18th century beloved and promptly raises his spirits. If you know what I mean. This may have been the first actual paranormal romance!
The sex in this book is all completely consensual and there’s no gross racist content – it does have wraith-ism, though.
