Every day at dusk, in a small Louisiana town, the dead emerge from Lorelei Lake. And travel writer Viola Valentine must use her "gift" of seeing ghosts to rid this town of its apparitions. Viola struggles not only with the task at-hand, but hopes that this evolving ability she obtained after Hurricane Katrina will help her reach her beloved Lillye.

Yet, the more Viola struggles to talk to her departed daughter, the more frustrated she gets. Plus, it's 2008, the height of the Great Recession, travel jobs are hard to come by, and her suffocating family and ex-husband keep making demands. She takes solace in a new love interest, one who teaches her how to harness her anger.

In the end, Viola realizes that only love can solve her problems, from ridding ghosts of lakeside towns to healing a broken heart.

Almost a year after Hurricane Katrina, former New Orleans resident Viola Valentine is struggling with finances and her new career as a travel writer, as well as her grief and anger over the loss of her young daughter. A tiny town seeks her help and abilities as a medium when the town becomes over run with the dead, and the water becomes toxic. Viola is a hot mess with her struggles from the loss of her daughter, her anger issues, and her romantic conflicts, but she uses her reporter skills to figure out the mysteries plaguing the small town with little use of her paranormal abilities. The ending is a bit over the top, even for a ghost mystery, but the writing is good, and the characters interesting.
