Weird things tend to happen when you live in a haunted house — not that author/ghost hunter Alice Carpenter has a problem disciplining her ten paranormal boarders. When cousin Katy calls for help with Sir Gary, the resident ghost at Espirt d'Chene near Jefferson, Alice comes to the rescue, but not before Katy discovers another dead person, a headless corpse in her swimming pool.
