Every Time You Go Away by Beth Harbison

What They Say.....In New York Times bestselling author Beth Harbison's most emotional novel ever, a fractured family must come together at a beach house haunted by the past.
Willa has never fully recovered from the sudden death of her husband, Ben. She became an absent mother to her young son, Jamie, unable to comfort him while reeling from her own grief. 
Now, years after Ben’s death, Willa finally decides to return to the beach house where he passed. It’s time to move on and put the Ocean City, Maryland house on the market. 
When Willa arrives, the house is in worse shape than she could have imagined, and the memories of her time with Ben are overwhelming. They met at this house and she sees him around every corner. Literally. Ben’s ghost keeps reappearing, trying to start conversations with Willa. And she can’t help talking back. 
To protect her sanity, Willa enlists Jamie, her best friend Kristin, and Kristin’s daughter Kelsey to join her for one last summer at the beach. As they explore their old haunts, buried feelings come to the surface, Jamie and Kelsey rekindle their childhood friendship, and Willa searches for the chance to finally say goodbye to her husband and to reconnect with her son. 
Every Time You Go Away is a heartfelt, emotional story about healing a tragic loss, letting go, and coming together as a family.

What I Say.....Ahhh, Beth Harbison, I love you so.  Every Time You Go Away was the perfect book for the weekend.  

Willa is ready to put her beach house on the market after her husband died in it.  She just needs to do some fixing up and stick the For Sale sign in the front yard.  

But when she arrives at the house by herself, she finds an unexpected surprise.  Her husband.  She's not sure if she's seeing a real ghost or if she is just finally going completely crazy, but she isn't going to miss a chance to connect with Ben again.

Her best friend and her son soon join her, but Ben doesn't go away and she's trying to keep their conversations a secret so that she doesn't look like a complete nutter butter.

This is the book you need to read if you want to snuggle under blankets and have a nice cleansing cry.  I loved it.
