If you love Marian Keyes, Taylor Jenkins Reid and Sophie Kinsella, you’ll almost certainly enjoy this warm, but dark romantic comedy.
Professional Santa Silas French fills out the same application as always for his regular stint at a New York department store. Ellen Gitelman hangs her jacket behind the counter at the East Side Diner and smoothes out her waitress uniform, as she waits for the coffee pot to stop percolating.
A double whammy of bad news leaves Silas jobless, with no money to pay for a planned trip to reconcile with his estranged gay son Joey in Florida. Cutbacks at the diner cost Ellen her job.
A chance tip from his local bar gets Silas a job as Santa on a cruise ship that happens to be docking in Florida, where Joey lives with his husband and kids. Ellen heads to a cafe across the street and spots a bulletin board ad selling tickets for a cruise. Her riotous friend Julia volunteers as a travel companion.
The MS Viking just happens to be carrying 3,000 gay men in the mood to party. What could go wrong?
Silas soon finds himself involved with some unsavoury business and meets a potential new love in the form of Ellen.
Over the course of the Christmas Holiday cruise, the three slowly learn that what they thought they were seeking isn’t really what would make them truly happy and that they are in control of their own choices.
GHOSTED is an emotional story of healing relationships and being there for the ones we love.
