A Confederate ghost who haunts a sweet old lady's house once a month is exactly the kind of story Chicago freelance reporter Newland Tran needs to bounce back from a career in disgrace. He's even willing to hang out in small-town Turtle Creek, Mississippi to do it.
Natalie Coleman has her life in complete order. Well, almost. She still has to clean up the messes from her wayward parents, her eccentric aunt, and her underage brother . . . who's also Turtle Creek's current mayor. Now that they have a reporter underfoot, Natalie's sanity is about to snap.
But there's more to the ghost than just a story. And Newland discovers there's more to Natalie than he ever dreamed. Can the unlikely pair discover the truth behind the eerie goings-on before Newland succumbs to Natalie's brand of southern comfort?
