    Recipe for Intrigue

    Start with the following ingredients: a ghost, a sunken riverboat filled with gold, and a possible murder. Mix in the town of Deception (which lives up to its name) and a voodoo priestess, and you now have a recipe for a spellbinding novel. Buck McDivit has just realized that he has an Aunt Emma, and now she¿s dead ¿ most likely murdered. Before she died, she sold part of Fitzgerald Island to a local couple and mortgaged the rest of the property away. Or did she? Several records seem to have mysteriously vanished, and the officially recorded statement is that Aunt Emma committed suicide. Buck has started to care for the couple that has been deprived of their rightful property, and he is determined to return it to them. He has a long uphill battle, resisting the establishment that wants them out. Sometimes Buck¿s enthusiasm gets a bit carried away and he winds up in some interesting situations! His heart is in the right place, even if at times he and his friends don¿t act entirely rational. Ghost of a Chance is a quick-moving story with lots of action. The reader feels sympathy for the family being railroaded out of Deception, and cheers for Buck as he fights for their rights. Although the story could have used a bit more editing, the end result is a satisfying conclusion, which ties up all loose ends. Muse Review Mark: Good Reviewer: Alice Berger, Muse Reviews
