Description:

As Halloween approaches South Cove, California, four couples get into the spirit of the holiday by conjuring up spirits. . .

The house has sat empty for fifteen years, taking up prime real estate along the picturesque coastline. Built by one of the founders of South Cove, its last known owner, Maryanne Demerit, vanished without a trace. Now her home will be demolished for a condo development, but until then, it’s the perfect spot for a Halloween haunted house.

Jill Gardner, owner of Coffee, Books, and More, her boyfriend, and three other couples are spending the weekend in the Demerit home. But what begins as an all-in-good-fun fright fest turns into a mystery begging to be solved as Jill is contacted by the ghost of Maryanne . . .

My Thoughts:

Jill, Greg, and their friends have decided to spend the weekend in a abandoned house which is being demolished to make way for a condo development.  They are hoping to solve the mystery of what happened to Maryanne Demerit who disappeared fifteen years ago.  While there Jill feels a strong connection to Maryanne leading to some weird dreams/visions.  What happened to Maryanne and will they figure it out or pay the price for snopping?

Some believe Maryanne was a witch and something went wrong.  But as they search deeper they learn Maryanne had a baby and something happened with the baby.  Now if only they could solve the bigger questions being brought to the surface.

I love this series it's fun and never a dull moment with Jill at the helm uncovering the clues and adding to the mystery.  Definitely a great Halloween treat to read.  I found myself captivated and unable to put it down!
