“Becki Willis blends bits of history with bits of fancy, and weaves a tantalizing tale you won’t soon forget.”
Reporter Gera Stapleton has a difficult choice to make: write the story of a lifetime, or save the legacy of a town—and a man—she has come to love.
Assigned to an impossible story in Jerome, Arizona about a “ghost” named Mac, Gera knows it’s a fluff piece, at best, until a local man is murdered in the middle of town. When the townspeople blame Mac, she knows the killer is getting away with… well, murder.
Seeing the opportunity for a cover-worthy piece, Gera sets out to find the real killer. In a town filled with curiosities, she befriends a lonely old woman, butts heads with an ornery sheriff, falls for a sexy hotel owner, and uncovers an amazing tale about greed, deception, and family honor. And when the killer targets her as the next victim, an unlikely savior comes to her rescue.
Will she write the story that launches her career, or will she honor a family’s legacy from the past?
Smart dialogue, plenty of action, and a touch of the supernatural make this a must-read novel. You’ll find yourself wondering: Is it possible? Are there truly such things as tangible spirits, after all?

Research was so much fun! Two ghost tours, lots of eerie places.
Hotel elevator, just like in the book. Dual views, from outside, from inside.
The bones of the Bartlett Hotel fascinated me and served as inspiration for the story.
