Avery's a journalist with a knack for stumbling upon dead bodies, and this time she gets a two-for-one deal. Can her ghostly connections help her solve the crime?
When Avery turns up to interview a couple for the Manesbury Daily for their wedding anniversary, the last thing she expects is to find two dead bodies. Unfortunately, in life, you don’t always get what you expect. After speaking to their ghosts, Avery is sure they’ve been murdered, but after carrying out their investigation, the police say otherwise, ruling it a murder-suicide.
Trusting her gut, and with one of the deceased’s mothers begging for her help, Avery refuses to give up her own investigation.
Her research leads her to two dangerous suspects, but she needs more evidence, and it’s hard to come by. Feeling as if she’s closing in on the killer, one of the men she’s pegged for the crime realises she’s implicated him, and the threats begin. But Avery refuses to back down. Her ghostly friends offer to watch out for her, but it might not be enough to save her life.
Has she just made the biggest mistake ever, or will her persistence pay off?
One thing’s for sure, she’s not only risking her life but also the wrath of the local police sergeant, who could make her life ridiculously difficult forever more. So now she just has to figure out a way to succeed whilst staying alive and believing in herself. If she lets the naysayers get to her, it could all be over, and Tom, the dead husband, will have his reputation ruined for eternity.
If Avery wants the truth to come out, she’s going to have to work for it. Luckily, she loves a challenge. Bring it on!

Her books have attracted praise from Apple Books and have reached #1 on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Apple Books charts worldwide, frequently occupying top 100 lists in fantasy and mystery.
