With Mayor Beau accused of abuse of power and facing federal indictment, a relentless curse after her unborn nephew, and a moody, uncommunicative spirit in her room, reluctant ghost-helper Graciela Harper figures she's got enough on her plate.
The universe, as usual, figures otherwise.
On a girls trip to Charleston that's meant to give Beau some space and cheer up her cousin, Amelia, a second ghost follows Gracie back to Heron Creek.
As she digs into the mystery behind the Whistling Doctor of Dueler's Alley, things at home go from bad to worse. Leo's not talking to her, Amelia's depression is putting her health at risk, and Beau...well, maybe he's not as innocent as Gracie always believed.
All that takes a back seat when Gracie's run off the road on her way back from a research trip, forcing her to face the possibility that her ghost's secrets might not be about harmless lost love after all. In fact, he's been the only person aware of certain documents for over two hundred years, and if Gracie helps unearth them she might find herself trapped underground...permanently.

Graciela is an amazing character, charming and delightfully flawed. Read Not Quite True, and you'll love her, too
This story manages to be serious, funny, and provide a bit of a pull at the heart strings all at once. The ending leaves you on the edge of your seat wanting more!
~~I received this in exchange for my honest opinion~ This is the third book in the Lowcountry series. And I have to tell you, this book does not disappoint at all. We pick up right where book two left off. There is trouble afoot in Heron Creek, and Gracie is for once not in the middle of it-or is she?! A trip to Charleston will help figure out who one ghost is, but she bring home a souvenir that she really doesn't need. Lyla sure knows how to write a great book. This book is no exception. She writes with passion and she knows her history. I felt like I was in Charleston going on ghost tours with Gracie. You will not be upset you bought this book, you will love this book!!
