For the living, the dead, and the people stuck somewhere in between, Heron Creek has become a battleground. Graciela Harper might be new seeing ghosts, fighting curses, and just living with her old friends again, but there's no doubt she's on the front lines-and overwhelmed.

Leo and Mel have been arrested. Amelia teeters on the edge of a deep depression that could cost her her child. Beau, her boyfriend who might not quite be her boyfriend anymore, is breaking her heart.

None of that will matter if Gracie can't figure out how to break the hundreds year old curse on the male line of her family. She knows she needs to focus on that, but with the future of one of South Carolina's oldest and most prestigious families hanging in the balance, she's tempted to try to save them, too.

What Gracie's about to learn is that she can't do this alone, and every single person who has entered her life since her return to Heron Creek will need to pitch in for her to succeed.

Well, that and the fact that she might not be able to save everyone...not even herself.

About the Author

I've 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. I adore telling stories, discovering the little reasons people fall in love, and uncovering hidden truths in the world around us - past and present.

In my spare time I cuddle my two dogs, pretend to enjoy exercising so that I can eat as much Chipotle as I want, and harbor a deep and abiding hope that Zac Efron likes older women. I loves reading, of course, along with movies, traveling, and Irish whiskey.

I'm hard at work, ALWAYS, and hope to bring you more Whitman University antics and at least one more Lowcountry ghost tale before the end of the year.

If you're a fan of Young Adult fiction-science fiction or otherwise-please check out my work that's published under the name Trisha Leigh.

My Book Hangover Is Quite Alright With Me! Reviewing this book without spoilers is a labor of love -- and insanity inducing, but rest assured no spoilers exist -- just a serious book hangover. Six novels and two novellas of the Lowcountry Mysteries span six months of Gracie’s life so far, and I don’t feel like I could ever tire of reading about her antics, mishaps, and triumphs. I’m TERRIBLE at choosing favorites, but if forced to choose my favorite Heron Creek tale, I believe Not Quite Right would be my favorite Gracie book. Every time I finish a Lowcountry novel, I stop to think about how far she’s come since that first of Not Quite Dead that says, “In retrospect, perhaps drinking myself to sleep in my grandparents’ driveway hadn’t been the best idea.” From that first day late in May until the end of this book Gracie steadily finds herself not only crawling out of the depression she arrived in but finding her place in Heron Creek. As usual, Gracie’s life is a whirlwind of trouble. Leo and Mel are dealing with the aftermath of their arrest after helping to find info about the Middletons in the last book. Her relationship with Beau is hanging in the balance as well. They have so many things working against them, and sometimes love isn’t enough to counteract the forces of nature pulling two people apart. Then there’s Mama Lottie -- a ghost that refuses to be ignored who’s bound and determined to have revenge on the Draytons leaving Gracie in the middle. She’s powerful, she’s scary, and she means business. Poor Gracie. The emotional range of Not Quite Right is so fitting to Gracie’s life at the moment. No matter how much stress and chaos going on around her, she still maintains her snarky wit and desire to save and protect those she loves. But she won’t make it to the end of this book without heartache and hurt. The curse hanging over her family is looming throughout the book, and she has to reach deeper for help than she realized or risk losing everything she’s fought so hard for. No matter how Lowcountry began, Gracie is no longer the friendless, ostracized young woman she was in Not Quite Dead. She’s become the nucleus of a patchwork, mismatched family. The connections this book weaves between everyone leaves little room for the entire Heron Creek gang to deny their lives would be emptier and far lonelier without Gracie bringing them together. Fair warning, though … there were tears. So maybe you should just read for yourself to see why. I’m going to nurse my book hangover.
