Once again, Karen White invites her readers into the haunting beauty of South Carolina. It's here that realtor Melanie Middleton confronts the past--and hopes she doesn't have to dig up her own...
There was a time when Melanie's dysfunctional family was out of sight and mind, and her only worries were her monthly sales figures, what shade of beige to paint her low-maintenance condo, and whether she was ready to make charming journalist Jack Trenholm a permanent fixture in her life. Those days are over.
After receiving a deadly premonition, Melanie's mother, who deserted her more than thirty years ago, suddenly returns to Charleston to protect her. But all Ginnette Prioleau Middleton does is remind Melanie of how little they have in common--except for their ability to communicate with ghosts...
And now Ginnette is moving into their ancestral home on Legare Street, and she needs Melanie's advice on restoring it and her sixth sense to talk to the dead that inhabit it. But Ginnette's return has awakened a dark spirit--whose strength has been growing for decades--and who is ready for revenge. With Jack's help, Melanie and her mother must find a way to work together to fight its malevolent presence and save what's left of their family...
"Southern Living meets the Southern unliving! A lovely read that's elegant, spooky, romantic, and scary--Karen White gives you everything you could want!"
—New York Times bestselling author Kerryln Sparks
"White has concocted a wonderful combination of ghostly presences, a bit of mystery and some romance. Set in the South, with all its traditional history, the reader is drawn right in."
