My Review
A Skeleton at Her Door is a story  I really enjoyed and didn't want to put down until the very end.
Characters – Angie who works at  a a level-one trauma center; a hard job with long hours.  She’s a woman who had a bad experience in her previous  marriage and "the facial scars on the right side" are  proof of it and good reasons to mistrust a new relationship. Should she believe the fortune cookie that says:. Open the door and open your heart. Love will find it.    
And indeed, it finds her.  Angie can’t believe it’s happening to her,  "if Tom Meyers was real or had she imagined him. Thirty-seven, single, two kids, and under those clothes, he's a hunk. This isn't happening to me. "     
Tom – a man who also has a troubled past. He considers that  "Lonesome was better than being greeted by a wife who nagged about everything."   His life was his children. They weren't perfect, but for growing up without a mother, they were doing well. Was he ready to allow someone into his heart?

Both Angie and Tom have to fight the ”demons”of their past and find the power to help each other move forward toward mutual trust and love.
Zach, Emily and Lissy are the children. They are lovely characters who complement the main ones.
E. Ayers has crafted a sweet, heartwarming story.  So if you want a nice "feel good" read A Skeleton at Her Door is it. Romantic novel lovers would enjoy this quick read.
