Not Quite Alive (A Lowcountry Mystery) by Lyla Payne

Graciela Harper is starting to realize that life would not be the same in Heron Creek without at least one mystery dogging her heels, and with her father's family secrets slowly coming to light, she's certainly not short on them.

What she doesn't count on is the revelation - both from her old outlaw friend Clete Raynard and the Heron Creek PD - that someone is out to get her, in more ways than one.

When a quite personal ghost shows up as well, Gracie knows that she's got her hands full. She also knows that until she solves one or all of the mysteries on her plate, no one in Heron Creek - including the people she loves the most - will be able to move on with their lives.

What's left of them.

About the Author

Lyla Payne has been publishing New Adult romance novels for a little over a year, starting with Broken at Love and continuing with the rest of the Whitman University series. She loves telling stories, discovering the little reasons people fall in love, and uncovering hidden truths in the world around us - past and present. In her spare time she cuddles her two dogs, pretends to enjoy exercising so that she can eat as much Chipotle as she wants, and harbors a deep and abiding hope that Zac Efron likes older women. She loves reading, of course, along with movies, traveling, and Irish whiskey. Lyla's hard at work, ALWAYS, and hopes to bring you more Whitman University antics and at least one more Lowcountry ghost tale before the end of the year.

Lyla Payne is represented by Kathleen Rushall at Marsal Lyon Literary Agency.

This story is an amazing way to bridge the story arc from Momma Lottie into what is sure to be an exciting, complicated and emotional move into finally getting Gracie some answers about her family. As always Lyla's writing is superb, her ability to weave an engaging and captivating story with a plot that will leave you guessing (even 8 books in) is something that will keep you coming back for more.

Mysteries, and Ghosts, and Surprises, OH MY! This book, y’all. The lingering book hangover has yet to ease, and I suspect it won’t until Lyla gives us the next book. As much as I love ALL of the Lowcountry books, I think this one is my favorite. It was such a wild ride all the way to the very end. As usual, Lyla delivered enough mystery, angst, Gracie-style humor, and excitement to keep me turning pages until I stumbled onto the last page and yelled, “NOOOO!” because I just wasn’t ready for it to end. Every time I pick up a Gracie book, it’s like visiting an old friend. Too many fantastic things happen in this book to say a great deal without giving away spoilers, so I’m just going to end with: Read this book. Seriously. Tell your friends, tell your family, and tell random people on the street to pick up the Lowcountry series. Gracie’s books are my all time favorite mystery series, and I love it whenever people tell me they started reading it because, inevitably, they end up as hooked as I am!
