One should always read southern gothic ghost stories by candlelight when they're without electricity.
In searching for information about her teenaged mother who died in an institution during childbirth, Eden finds out more about her family history than she ever expected. With a mixed-race ancestor who combined the powers of a Seminole medicine man with the powers of an African witch doctor and passed these powers down the generations, it's no wonder that Eden sees ghosts everywhere from the mountains of Chattanooga to the swamplands of Florida. Whether she's chasing or being chased by ghosts or by a homicidal cousin, there's not a dull moment in the entire book. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
