What do a recovering romance writer, an ornery kitten, and a town full of ghosts have in common?

Unfortunately, that’s still me. And I don’t see my circumstances changing any time soon.

As the newest resident of Restless, South Carolina, I’m learning all sorts of disturbing facts about the town. For instance, when someone goes missing, it usually doesn’t end well. That’s certainly the case when a fellow newspaper employee disappears. Naturally, I’m the one who finds her and, believe me, it didn’t end well for her.

With a truckload of unanswered questions already under my belt, I’m not that surprised when solving the murder of my friend ends up being a Christmas mystery of epic proportions. The problem is, depending on what happened to her, I could be the next to meet an untimely—and very violent—end. My only choice is to pack up the cat and track down a spirit that might be able to help me find a killer. I’m not doing it alone, though. My father and his unruly band of gray hairs are determined to help me solve the case. Shaking them is like trying to get rid of static cling.

A talking cat, an inept investigator, and a gang of old men—what could possibly go wrong?
