Alabama Hargrove and her boyfriend Reed O'Hara are on their way to Kentucky to visit his family when their truck breaks down on an out-of-the way road. While hiking to his uncle's house, they take a short cut where Alabama sees and falls in love with the local haunted plantation. After some convincing, Reed and Alabama meet with the present owner Gordon and convince him to sell it to them, since he is having difficulty completing his own intended renovations. Weeks later, Gordon requests they meet with him to transfer some additional paperwork to them. However, when they arrive at his office, they find his dead body. Reed quickly becomes a murder suspect, which means Alabama has to switch into investigator mode to rescue her boyfriend. Can she find the murderer before it's too late? Oh, and did I forget to mention that their renovation was again being done to a haunted house! This is a fun series with just enough mystery and paranormal activity to keep your attention. The characters, including her mother and best friend, are quirky and memorable. I am looking forward to the next story in this series.

Alabama Hargrove and Reed O’Hara have been dating for about six months.  Reed invited Alabama to his family reunion in Georgia.  About five miles from the reunion Reed’s car breaks down leaving the couple to walk the rest of the way.  As they walked toward the reunion Reed and Alabama discover an old plantation house in desperate need of repairs.  Just when Alabama and Reed get their hooks into a new project they come across another murdered body.  Will the couple survive their haunted fixer-upper or will they die trying? Overall, I liked this novel.  I've read Rose Pressey’s Halloween LaVeau Series and her Larue Donavan series.  Out of the seven books I've read this one has the sloppiest editing.  There are instances where there is a bit redundant in Alabama’s thought pattern.   Which is fine, it doesn't take away from the story.  Alabama was also a bit obsessive over the purchase of the house in the first couple of chapters, but after the murder the story really picked up.   Again, I really liked this story.  It was a fast read with a good plot line.  I look forward to reading more of Rose Pressey books.  I just hope that How to Date a Werewolf, and No Shoes, Now Shirts, No Spells will be available on the nook so I can read both of those series too.

As w/the first book, lots of errors. Is Lou Reed's Uncle or father? She calls Reed his son even though she says he's Reed's Uncle. Also Reed's cousin's husband worked for the murdered man, & then the cousin is the one working for him. Confusing, but best to just ignore the errors & enjoy the book. I did.

I did enjoy this book, but there were a lot of holes and bad editing and proofreading in it. The story was cute, but some of the characters needed to be fleshed out a bit more, and not so stereotyped. Good beach read for the summer.

I am so glad I found this author!! I read the novel preceding this one and look forward to future stories with Alabama and Reed. The characters are well written and the story line, while complex at times, is easy to follow. I didn't have to go back over any parts of the book for clarification. Good job, Rose!!!! I very much enjoyed reading these books.
