Paranormal Cozy Mystery

Starting over in a magical town is murder.

Dahlia Wildes often feels like a ghost, but seeing them is a new development. After being transported to a strange town with magical beings, she struggles to understand what’s going on and why everyone keeps telling her she’s a witch. But when the only person with answers is called away to a murder at a pottery studio, Dahlia finds herself along for the ride and in the epicenter of a dangerous investigation.

On unfamiliar territory, Dahlia sorts through suspects and settles into her new powers, but not without some major complications. For one, there’s a giant ghost dog who seems to be following her, and for another, the whole town is eyeing the newcomer with suspicion. And if she doesn’t figure out who’s behind a deadly curse, she could go from seeing ghosts… to being one.

Possessed of cool common sense and burning ambition, nineteen-year-old Corin Johansen leaves home to attend a prestigious art school in Boston. But Corin never met anyone back in Proctor’s Crossing, Pennsylvania, like the larger-than-life landlady at her new boardinghouse.

Corin soon learns the boardinghouse kitchen is supposedly haunted by the ghost of the Fat Lady from the circus, Dina’s old friend Rosie Garside. Corin is skeptical, but when she cooks, she can’t shake the feeling she’s being watched.

The tall redhead has also caught the eye of some of the young male boarders: playboy Jack Banks and standoffish but gifted art student Alex Bodmin.

Biographies of Actors & Actresses

Welcome back to chez Bertinelli, where life is as crazy and comical as ever. In revealing talks with her longtime boyfriend, Tom, Valerie gets even more personal about her inner worries: her maternal anxieties about her son, Wolfie (he’s fallen in love and, as she writes, “getting your sex talk from Eddie Van Halen wasn’t recommended in any of the parenting books I read”); the challenges of dealing with a blended family; her mother’s own new diet adventure; and a craving for a deeper relationship with a Higher Power (“I have experienced days of inner peace and connectedness with a larger spirit — twice,” she writes. “Why not more often?”). And as if these everyday challenges weren’t enough, Valerie is work-ing to maintain her own very public weight loss. She even gets to thinking she might kick it up a notch, shed more weight and get so buff she can wear a bikini — in public.

In this new, inspiring memoir from the beloved actress and author of the bestseller Losing It, Valerie tells the story of what happens after you change your life. It’s not all peaches and cream, or even non-fat yogurt.
