Lyla Payneabout this book: They say you can't go home again but with all of the crap going on in Graciela Harper's life, she's determined to try. At twenty-five, she packs up her crappy car and leaves an ex-fiance and career in academia behind to return to Heron Creek, SC and her ailing grandfather.
Sure, there's also an ex-first love, a rocky relationship with his wife and an even worse rift to heal with her cousin, but all that would be easier to handle if she didn't strike the fancy of Anne Bonny, the town's resident spirit, too.
Anne wants Gracie to do something and she won't give up until she gets her way--a fact that sends Gracie centuries into the past, determined to solve a mystery that just might have modern day consequences.
This book isn't a ghost story, per se, but a mystery that revolves around small towns, the South, old friends, the bond of family, and yes, the occasional ghost.
Can Gracie go home again? Will the prodding of a ghost lead her straight into her own grave? Will the town's handsome new mayor ever give up asking her out? You'll have to read to find out!
