Weird things tend to happen when you live in a haunted house — not that author/ghost hunter Alice Carpenter has a problem disciplining the ten resident ghosts in her lakeside log cabin near forgotten-time Six Gun, Texas. When her cousin Katy calls looking for help with the resident ghost at Espirt d’Chene, the family mansion near Jefferson, Alice packs up her Rottweiler, Trucker, and Siamese, Miss Molly, and heads to come to the rescue.

Sir Gary Gavin, dead now over two hundred years, insists Alice is the only one who can expose his undeliberate murder to allow him to leave his tortured existence; and he’s not above wreaking havoc at Espirt d’Chene until Alice concedes to his demands. Before Alice can even pack, though, Katy discovers a new murder — a headless corpse floating in her swimming pool. This new ghost — Bucky, the black-sheep son of a Texas senator — is dangerous in his newly-dead, confused state as he searches the plantation for his head.

Alice must somehow uncover the identity of Bucky’s murderer, or else it looks like Katy will be charged with the crime, despite several other suspects who have motives for wanting Bucky dead. To make matters worse, the homicide detective in charge, Alice’s ex-husband Jack, doesn’t believe in ghosts. That leaves Alice no choice but to depend on her ghost hunting mentor, Twila, and her elderly neighbor, Granny, to assist in the investigation.

Katy is arrested, and there’s no help for it: Sir Gary’s going to have to join the investigation. Much to Jack’s dismay — and the delight of the women — he is finally forced to admit that Sir Gary is real. A real ghost, anyway. Together, the unlikely team of sleuths join forces to help send Sir Gary to his deserved reward, track down the real killer, and set Katy free.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Wow! This is another excellent book on paranormal and ghosts. T.M. Simmons is an outstanding writer and is fearless when dealing with ghosts, spirits, and dark entities. Get this ebook and all of her others.


Ms. Simmons claims her books are based on true stories. If this is true, while living them may not have been fun, the retelling certainly is. All in all, a rollicking fun time (except for the damsel in distress). Recommended.


The story flowed smoothly and the editing was outstanding. It’s been awhile since I have had a really good read, so good that I am itching to read more of this Authors writing. I would recommend this book to any age.


Another offering from an excellent author. Really enjoyed it and highly recommend both the book and this author. A fun way to spend the afternoon.


I’m enjoying this book immensely. This book is FICTION but the authoress has also produced diaries of her ghost investigations which are equally entertaining. I love the subtle humor in her writing and the “ghosts” are pretty darn entertaining.

She publishes her paranormal investigations in Ghost Hunting Diary Volumes I and, so far, IV. Volume V is in the works, with more to come.
