Step into the mysterious world of weird Florida, where surprises and spirits are as common as sun and sand…

Amelia Matthews never anticipated inheriting a hotel in in a small southern town, but life’s twists and turns have led her to the Sunshine State. Under the hotel’s quirky, rundown fa├žade lie haunting secrets—an unsolved murder and a restless spirit who keeps turning off the air conditioner. In the summer. In Florida.

From the moment Amelia reluctantly walks through the door of the Crescent Moon Inn, she embarks on an unwelcome spectral adventure. Her companions on this eerie journey include the sassy feline Freddie Purrcury, the overly enthusiastic and hilarious Liz with her New Age bookstore, and the charmingly handsome local historian, Oliver.

Then Amelia discovers her hidden psychic abilities. As spooky happenings escalate, she can’t help but wish for a few minutes of peace. And maybe a margarita.

She faces a decision: sell the inn and run, or embrace her new destiny as a paranormal sleuth. In this spine-tingling cozy mystery, Amelia Matthews unravels the secrets of the inn’s haunted past while navigating psychic powers, an ornery cat, and a quirky crew of new friends. If she doesn’t solve the mystery, she just might become the inn’s next ghostly inhabitant…

Join Amelia in a captivating, laugh-out-loud adventure as she embarks on a quest to uncover the truth, and you’ll find yourself immersed in a world where the line between the ordinary and the supernatural blurs.

Q&A With the Author

What did you enjoy most about writing this book?

I never in a million years dreamed I would write a paranormal cozy mystery. But then I went to a spooky old hotel with my parents in California and I couldn’t shake the idea that I got while wandering around! I had such a blast making the characters come to life. This was the most fun book I’ve written in nine years of writing fiction.

Do you have any other books you are working on that you can tell us about?

I’m working on a book called GATOR QUEEN. It’s a cozy mystery about an alligator trapper in Florida. It’s pretty weird and wild!

Can you tell us about what you have planned for the future?

My overall plan is to publish the Crescent Moon Mysteries — I’m loving the characters and have so many ideas for them.

How long have you been writing?

Nine years! I started writing romance.

Anything more you would like to say to your readers and fans?

Thank you for all of your support. It means more to me than you know! I adore my cozy mystery readers!
