Love, ghosts, mayhem, and all out fun can be found in Judy Fitzwater's new romantic comedy, VACATIONING WITH THE DEAD.

When Rex Ferris's great, great Uncle Nate dies and makes Rex promise to take care of the Ferris Mansion and "everything in it," Rex has no idea the "everything" includes ghosts. Now he's stuck with four, all actors, who have no intention of moving into the "Light." With maintenance costs rising at the huge, old mansion, and four bored spirits who want to act, Rex does the only thing he can think of. He turns the mansion into a murder mystery weekend destination with incredible special effects that aren't really effects at all. But not content with his growing success, Rex makes one fateful decision: he advertises his new enterprise in The Traveler's Companion, the nation's premiere travel magazine.

Trapped in the basement of the Traveler's Companion's offices in Washington, D.C., dreaming of traveling the world and reviewing exotic resorts for the magazine, is Talia East. It's her job to input and format ads for the magazine. But the closest she's ever likely to see the world is gazing at the posters that line her tiny, gray cubicle. That is, until one strange ad comes across her desk which begins, "Vacation with the Dead." It sounds ridiculous, even hokey, yet somehow intriguing. But maybe, just maybe, it could be her ticket out. IF she can write one knock-out article and IF the effects are even half as amazing as Rex Ferris promises, she might just land her dream job.

What Talia finds at the Ferris mansion will forever change her life and her understanding of true love. But the path won't be easy. Mediums, spirit guides, cutthroat critics, interfering coworkers, and an old boyfriend are all on hand to complicate Talia and Rex's quest.

Vacationing with the Dead is a funny, sweet romantic comedy in which true love is not just for the living, and its obstacles don't end after death. It's a fun romp filled with peril, mystery, unforgettable characters, and the adventure of finding everlasting love.

From the author of the award-nominated JENNIFER MARSH MYSTERY SERIES, originally published by Ballantine Books, and the suspense novels, DROWNING IN AIR and NO SAFE PLACE.
