Snippet Sunday: some words from Under My Skin

A snippet from Under My Skin! :)

The blurb to give a general idea of the book:

House bought for a steal online when it turns out there’s a damn good reason—check.
Malicious ghost with a body count to his name—check.
Sad, lingering female spirit pining for her still living (but currently dying) fiancĂ©—check.
What’s a widowed medium to do when a departed soul asks to ride piggy back in her body?
To share her space and get under her skin? Juliet Bale does the only thing she can do—with her twin sister’s good counsel—she lets Lanie share her body to help her dying beloved Elijah cross over. The problem is that with all the reuniting, and sharing one body, things get seriously intimate and Juliet can’t help but see exactly why Elijah Rivers was so beloved.
It’s so wrong to sorta kinda fall for a dying man, and yet—check.
And now the snippet:

I felt her again. His fiancée. Her energy sidled up to mine, wrapped around me, invaded my heart.

“You look familiar,” he said.

Uh-oh. I was picking up some of her physical characteristics from letting her energy entwine with mine. But for some reason, I felt she needed this, and I didn’t try to stop her. So it was very much the dead Lanie who stood on my tippy toes and planted a gentle but fervent kiss on his full lips. His shock was brief, his embarrassment evident as we said our goodbyes. He spared me another glance as he got in his truck. Still blushing.
