Ellen and her two best friends share a mid-life crisis by hatching a plan to renovate an 1860's Greek revival in the nearby historic district of San Antonio. Although Ellen isn’t one to believe in ghosts, she comes face to face with something inexplicable in the attic. Her ghost-enthusiast friends convince her that they must help the spirit find closure, and as they dig deeper into the past, they uncover a shocking history that someone in the neighborhood doesn’t want exposed.

But Ellen and her friends don't give up easily. They realize they've been called to give voice to the invisible women who suffered behind the walls of the house for decades.


What starts as a ghost story turns into something else entirely.  When Ellen and her friends stumble on a Greek Revival house with a sordid past they decide to buy it and turn it into a bed and breakfast but as the history of the house and the atrocities that happened there they aren't sure about their plans.  With ghosts, atrocities toward women in the name of helping them, hidden gold and issues between mothers and daughters this is a fun and witty read.  

Ellen, Tanya and Sue are all great characters each with their own quirks.  All are empty nesters and looking for a project to focus on.  Together they are like a middle age Scooby gang. Breaking into houses trying to solve mysteries.  I really enjoyed this book and look forward to the next one in this series.
