Signs Of The South
A new job, a new home, and a ghost that won’t let her sleep until she solves a murder.
This is not exactly what Ella Giancetti has in mind when she accepts a college teaching position and relocates. Moving from Connecticut to Virginia, Ella quickly learns of the many cultural differences separating the North from the South, from her first taste of sweet tea to the true meaning of ‘bless your heart’. Adjusting to all this while dealing with incessant phone calls from her abrasive sister Lisa and trying to figure out why someone is spray painting spiteful messages on her new house is a little overwhelming. At least there’s a handsome police officer hanging around.
When Ella wakes to find a ghost in her house she decides enough is enough. She’s going to need to find out how the ghost became a ghost if she ever wants to have a peaceful night in her new home. Unfortunately, finding out why is going to take more than a few Internet searches. Unearthing the mystery of this ghost means delving into a town’s long ago past where racial lines were sharply drawn and injustices were a way of life.

Revenge of the Past
(originally titled Past Unfinished)
Why is it so hard for Katie Hollister to listen when Hannah, the family ghost, issues a warning? Probably because she says things Katie doesn’t want to hear, and she only shows up when there’s trouble.
In 1861, Irish immigrant Hannah Donovan is unjustly accused of murdering her employer, Titus Foote. Hoping to leave memories of that awful time behind her, Hannah fled Connecticut and migrated south to Yorktown, Virginia.
A century and a half later a ghostly game of revenge ensues when Titus catches up to Hannah. He still believes Hannah killed him, and vows to annihilate her descendants.
Cleve Farrington is the handsome new stranger in town, and it seems he has his eye set on Katie Hollister. But Katie has a secret, and it has nothing to do with the fact that she lives with the ghost of her great-great-great grandmother. Katie’s secret is starting to unravel, and she finds that even her old friends Roland and Ella may not be able to help her in time.
As revelations about Katie's obsession come to light, she is faced with enemies so powerful they could destroy her, body and soul.
