Overview

Not Quite Clear (A Lowcountry Mystery) by Lyla Payne

Life in Heron Creek has never been what Graciela Harper would call normal. Or relaxing or settled or hell, even expected, but lately things have started to unravel at an alarming rate. These days her priority is the custody case between her cousin Amelia and the all-powerful Middletons, which isn't looking so good. Gracie and her friends decide to take matters into their own hands, because losing that baby isn't an option for anyone.

The living impaired residents of the lowcountry have different ideas about how Gracie should be spending her time, and will stop at nothing to force her to help them finish their earthly business...no matter what that means for Gracie's own personal life or physical well-being.

Add to that the law in town--and lawlessness out in the woods--skulking around her like vultures over a fresh carcass, and Gracie struggles to see how she's going to get out of any of these scrapes in one piece.

She's got good friends, an amazing boyfriend, the ability to see ghosts and a pretty decent set of detective skills, thanks to recent events, not to mention hopes for a decent future. But as the storm in Heron Creek swirls into a hurricane, those assets might be nothing more than a list of things Gracie's going to lose.

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.

OMG!!! Excellent continuation of the story. That was a very unexpected twist at the end. I'm emotionally wrung out. I had to reread the last part a few times just to make sure it actually said what I thought. Definite book hangover. Can't wait to find out how everything plays out.

I've enjoyed all the books in the Lowcountry Mystery series, and can't wait for the next installment. As with the other books, Not Quite Clear is a perfect blend of drama, romance, humor and, of course, mystery! Was worried the 'ghost' part of the story might be hokey, but that couldn't be further from the truth. The ghostly characters keep the story entertaining and unpredictable. The only thing I don't like about this book... we have to wait until next year to discover what happens next!

This Lowcountry series will capture from the first book The characters are so genuine that you feel you know them and want to be one of their team The ghosts are supporting characters with personalities that drive the story forward Good fun which just might keep you reading half the night, while chuckling out loud !
