When twenty-something Lia's grandmother dies, her life is knocked upside-down. In order to satisfy the terms of her inheritance, Lia is forced to move to the family's apartment complex in the scenic mountain town of Applebarrow, leaving behind her dead-end job and long-term boyfriend, Jason. While she's happy to fulfill her Granana's unusual dying wish to play social director to the eclectic group of tenants, she's surprised to discover they are not what she was expecting.
Her days as an RA in her college dorm were inadequate preparation for personalities such as a jealous librarian who names her Thanksgiving turkeys, a charmingly naive mechanic who thinks New Wave is beach music, and a volatile menopausal woman who claims to be a delicate flower.
To add to the mayhem, she meets Logan, an attractive young bartender with a penchant for rescuing her from absurd antics, such as losing her phone to a raccoon and thinking Long Island Iced Teas contain little alcohol. As Jason's behavior becomes increasingly suspicious and erratic, Lia can't help being drawn to Logan's thoughtfulness, wit, and intense blue eyes.
As she adapts to her new community, secrets and lies emerge, and Lia wonders what the deceased, AND living, people in her life are hiding. Working to uncover the evidence, Lia hopes a wacky, unexpected visitor from beyond will provide the answers she craves – before she loses her grip on reality, and the love of her life.

Hallucination? She wishes. Whether human or wolf, Reed talks in her head and tells her how to handle things…or rather how to kill them…starting with the men who hold them all captive. Too bad he can’t tell her how to put her life back like it was.

By chance, a geneticist isolated a rare gene in little Kennedy Taylor… the ICTII35 gene. The doctor said, “She’s a witch! Your daughter was born with the witch gene!” Mrs. Taylor had no time to ask the doctor anything. He was out of the room in a matter of seconds. “But I’ve never heard of a witch gene,” she called after him, but he was long gone.
Kennedy certainly is special, and she takes no crap from anyone, especially the young men in her life who find her beguiling. There was one man pestering her so much, sending her flowers and candy, determined to make her a married woman, his married woman, that she waved her wand in his face and he took on a goat-like appearance, with horns and all. Kennedy’s personal assistant, Truman, had to hide the guy in the cellar until Kennedy could research how to undo what she had done. Thankfully, the goat-man didn’t remember any of it.
But that was child’s play compared to her latest stunt. Attempting a new spell, Kennedy ends up killing a man, but can’t remember what she did with the body. Once again, Truman must step in and clean up her mess. This time, he’s digging through dumpsters trying to find where the little witch hid the body, while the woman who runs the inn next door secretly films it all.
Determined to avoid both online dating and meetup groups, she endures fix-ups with all sorts of memorable characters, such as weepy Pete, the drunk skunk, the cheap hot-dog eater, and let's not forget - the unholy speed dater.
As Claire becomes more depressed over her plight, her best friend Jane prompts her to redirect her maternal longings by adopting an adorable wiener dog puppy.

Unfortunately, while Claire is trying to move on, Ron is trying to pull her back into the past, and his life. Determined to win back his wife's affections, he offers to help Claire with home repairs as he tries to implement 'Operation Friends' in an effort to persuade his wife into giving him another chance. However, Ron is struggling with his own adjustment to single life, and isn't finding it easy to ditch the Amazon woman, or his new 'mail order bride' dating site hobby, no matter how much he has convinced himself that he and Claire belong together.
