I wish I could form warm, tight, loving connections with other people in the instantaneous manner that the characters do in this book. Liv, Autis, Sweetie, Bambi, Sandi, Gar... they all immediately are drawn to each other and become tight friends. What I enjoy about it is what an incredibly eclectic bunch they are. From all walks of life and privilege levels, they come together to help solve the mystery of Liv and Autis' ghost filled manor home.
Live and Autis bought a beautiful old house out near the river and swampland for a ridiculously cheap sum of money. They didn't think to question why........until the voices start. Then the ringing doorbell. The swamplights floating over a very large slave graveyard they find in the back of their property. And who's the big burly ghost with a thing for Liv?
They soon discover that their beautiful home was once the plantation to a line of very nasty men. Men who are no longer on the earth, but left quite a few ticked off ghosts behind.
Together with their friends, Liv and Autis try to right the wrongs that those men caused, so that the spirits still trapped on this earth can finally rest in peace. Can they do this before they also admit defeat and abandon the home they've come to love?
Meanwhile, Liv also finds out a little bit more about her past and history - things she had no idea about. Zingers you might say!
