True Believer by Nicholas Sparks

True Believer

 Jeremy Marsh is a born skeptic and a science journalist who specializes in debunking the supernatural. When he hears about ghostly apparitions in a cemetery in Boone Creek, North Carolina, he leaves his beloved New York City for this small, rural town-and what his instincts tell him could make a great story. What he doesn't plan on is meeting and falling hopelessly in love with Lexie Darnell, who is sure of one thing: her future is here in Boone Creek, close to the people she loves. Now, if the young lovers are to be together, Jeremy must make a difficult choice: return to the life he knows in New York, or do something he could never do before... take a giant leap of faith.

A very nice story with characters who felt real and believable...  I will try not to give away any spoilers so I will just say that the way this story winds up nearer the end of the book, is really good.  I liked the way the two main characters interact with each other and the final decisions that are made....
