“As Rebecca grudgingly leaves her home in New York City to attend school in New Orleans, she dreads being stuck living with her Aunt Claudia, a fortuneteller. When Rebecca follows some of her schoolmates into a graveyard to spy on them one night, she gets sucked into a voodoo curse. Filled with the ambiance of New Orleans, this is a great read for anyone who loves ghost stories.”
-- Sharon Carey, Beaverdale Books, Des Moines, IA


Description

A gripping supernatural mystery and romance set in post-Katrina New Orleans.

Rebecca couldn't feel more out of place in New Orleans. She's staying in a creepy house with her aunt, who reads tarot cards. And at the snooty prep school, a pack of filthy-rich girls treat Rebecca like she's invisible. Only gorgeous, unavailable Anton Grey gives Rebecca the time of day, but she wonders if he's got a hidden agenda.
Then one night, among the oak trees in Lafayette Cemetery, Rebecca makes a friend. Sweet, mysterious Lisette is eager to show Rebecca the nooks and crannies of New Orleans. There's just one catch.
Lisette is a ghost.
