Is Your New Apartment Haunted?

The Ghostess and MISTER Muir

By Jeff Salter

If you discovered you’d just rented a converted hotel suite which had been haunted for the past 100 years, wouldn’t you be skeered?
Not Levi Muir. He doesn’t believe in spooks. He just thinks the lovely ghostess is “hot”.
But Muir’s attractive new colleague, Lucy, is a dedicated spirit-chaser and she KNOWS ghosts have special powers. Especially a beautiful ghostess who needs Muir’s help with a special endeavor.

Folks, it’s Halloween tomorrow … and a perfect time to tell y’all about my newest novel, released by Astraea Press earlier this month. It’s the first title in their new series, “The Heart of Magnolia” (which is set in fictional Magnolia, AL).

Only $3.99 in digital form from Amazon or B&N.

I’ve always loved the 1947 movie, “The Ghost and Mrs. Muir” and — while thinking about it earlier this year, I wondered how would a MAN — skeptical that spooks even exist — react when he saw a beautiful ghostess.
This result is my affectionate homage to that film.


The Ghostess and MISTER Muir

Despite not believing in spirits, it takes only one haunting for Levi Muir to become entranced with the beautiful ghostess.

Muir and his lovely colleague, Lucy, soon realize there may be more to Danielle’s mysterious 1914 death than the locals believe.

The more Muir senses ghostly presence, the more he wants to see Danielle … and then desires even more contact!

But Lucy takes matters into her own hands, because no self-respecting Southern girl takes second place to a spook.

    LOL, Jeff! I love your blurb. Sounds like my kind of story! Nice cover!

    I never saw the movie, but I loved the television show. Sounds like a great premise. And how exciting that it’s part of a series! I noticed you wrote it’s “their” series – as in Astrea Press’ – not yours. So are other people writing the other books in the series?

    Right, Patty. This is an AP series and I’m fortunate enough to have its very first title. Opal Campbell made the announcement back in Jan or Feb. and several AP authors pitched in and helped her “build” Magnolia from the ground up. It was a lot of fun. So naturally, I had to jump right on the story which was inspired by all that construction work.


  6. Definitely on my ever-growing TBR list,Jeff! Best of luck with this!
