Haunted Mysteries

A collection of stories by

Haunted Mysteries Novelette Collection contains three paranormal mystery novelettes. Each novelette: Hungry Ghost, Winter's Ghost, and River Ghost, is written in a classic cozy mystery tradition with a Southern Gothic style. At the core of each novelette is the discovery of long-ago mystery that is solved in present day. The paranormal aspect is ghostly, not horror.

Hungry Ghost takes place in New Orleans, Louisiana. The new owners of Cafe Cartier must squelch rumors of a haunting before they can open for business. Investigators, Lily Duvernay, and Tony Scot are asked to explore the restaurant's past in order to put to rest the spirits that haunt the cafe: ghosts that have been active ever since a murder in the 1950s.

Winter's Ghost is set in Tyler, Texas, where Libby Prater purchases the ideal historic home to use as an office for her interior design business. The restless spirit of a sin-eater will not allow Libby to have peace of mind. Before she can move into her new home and set up business, Libby is compelled to solve a decades-old mystery.

River Ghost is the name of a modern-day river boat and gambling ship docked at Vicksburg, Mississippi. Owner and operator of the paddle-wheel casino, Corlah Kellian, is also a ghost researcher. She is hired to investigate the hauntings at one of Vicksburg's grand antebellum plantations. Corlah gladly takes on the assignment, with the assistance of her own ancestor ghost, Jubal, a Confederate soldier who lost his life in the American Civil War at the siege of Vicksburg.

Each novelette in this collection is a stand-alone story. It is not necessary to read the novelettes in the order presented within Haunted Mysteries. Average word for each of the three novelettes is 14,800 words.
