ISBN: 978-1626940604

A young woman reveals that the relationships between hotel guests and hotel staff don't always end with passing out the room key.
Always falling head over heels for men who have nothing to offer her and running from those who do, Kara realizes that her quest to find Mr. Right is harder than expected. As if her (mostly ludicrous) dates weren't enough to deal with, her unusual combination of friends--one gay, one a virgin, one dating a married man, and one telling her to "give it up on the first date in order to start a flourishing relationship"--isn't of much help in the matters of the heart either. Perhaps a kiss in the middle of the Charles Bridge could finally bring her happiness. But wait! That's just an old myth. Or is it?

All that you see is not all there is.

Dr. Josef Stein was trained as a man of science and rationality, but after a tragic experience, he believes that there is something within—or even without—the human body science cannot explain. And Stein would do anything to witness it! When his patients begin seeing a ghost, and a woman suspected of killing her child even accuses this spirit of the crime, Stein takes it upon himself to investigate. Unexpectedly, evidence of a supernatural phenomenon starts to mount. The good doctor’s quest to see is ignited with fervor. He thinks that he is on the verge of uncovering the veracity of a thousand year old myth when his research gets interrupted by the Gestapo. Stein turns to his colleagues and friends for help, but they begin to suspect that the doctor’s determination may have unhinged his mind. Has Stein, after years of treating the crazy, gone mad himself?
