Magical Real Estate

Travel to Swan Hollow, Georgia, magic is everywhere and ghosts are real. As the one and only part-time assistant to a full-time real estate agent, Alyssa Grey does it all. She delivers contracts, picks up dry-cleaning, and occasionally even gets to help show the old houses her boss specializes in listing. Old houses, of course, come with lots of extra work to do. Will Alyssa be able to dispose of the skeletons in the closets and settle the disrupted ghosts who haunt the halls in time to make the sale? There’s more at stake than a few hundred thousand dollars here—getting it wrong could cost Alyssa her magic… or her life.

My name is Alyssa Grey, and I have no idea what I’m doing… in life, love, with my magic powers—you name it.

Working as a personal assistant to the busiest realtor in the small Southern town of Swan Hallow always kept me plenty busy, but then my boss’s partner died and I got a promotion... Just without the extra pay.

Now I’m showing old homes, and every single one of them is haunted. As a witch, I’m not supposed to be able to see ghosts. But I do. And they know I do. And I know they know I do. And, oh boy.

Worse yet, an apparition that looks an awful lot like my boss’s dead partner has come knocking, and demanding I solve her murder. I’ve been given an ultimatum: help or die. It looks like I can’t really trust anyone any more. Will my cat, mouse familiar, and a new shapeshifter friend be enough to help me get the job done in what little time I have left?
