The living impaired residents of the lowcountry have different ideas about how Gracie should be spending her time, and will stop at nothing to force her to help them finish their earthly business...no matter what that means for Gracie's own personal life or physical well-being.
Add to that the law in town--and lawlessness out in the woods--skulking around her like vultures over a fresh carcass, and Gracie struggles to see how she's going to get out of any of these scrapes in one piece.
She's got good friends, an amazing boyfriend, the ability to see ghosts and a pretty decent set of detective skills, thanks to recent events, not to mention hopes for a decent future. But as the storm in Heron Creek swirls into a hurricane, those assets might be nothing more than a list of things Gracie's going to lose.
About the author
Lyla Payne has 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. She loves telling stories, discovering the little reasons people fall in love, and uncovering hidden truths in the world around us - past and present. In her spare time she cuddles her two dogs, pretends to enjoy exercising so that she can eat as much Chipotle as she wants, and harbors a deep and abiding hope that Zac Efron likes older women. She loves reading, of course, along with movies, traveling, and Irish whiskey. Lyla's hard at work, ALWAYS, and hopes to bring you more Whitman University antics and at least one more Lowcountry ghost tale before the end of the year.
Lyla Payne is represented by Kathleen Rushall at Marsal Lyon Literary Agency.
