Book 1: Miss You Once Again
An unexpected death. A broken relationship. A family ghost. Limitless sweet tea.
Caralee Trenton owns an extreme outdoor adventure company and spends her days pushing people to their limits in the rugged Rocky Mountains. The unexpected death of her Nana forces Lee to face challenges of her own. She must return to the South to settle her Nana's estate in Eden and navigate a minefield of childhood memories, fractured relationships and family history. A dose of Southern hospitality and sweet tea, along with her childhood friend, John Hunter, complicates her effort to finalize the sale of her Nana's antebellum home and all her possesions. Lee hasn't seen John Hunter in 20 long years and his presence dredges up painful memories, along with newfound desires.
As Lee sorts through both Nana’s estate and her own confused emotions, Nana’s ghost shadows her granddaughter. Worried that history will repeat itself, Nana decides to stir up a mess of trouble in Lee’s ordered plans. Lee is pushed to a crossroads where she must decide whether to stay on her independent journey or take a chance on a different future and fight for the man she loves.
Book 2: Bobbing for Watermelons
In the small town of Brookwood, Iowa, forty-one-year-old food columnist Helen Munson, unappreciated by her two teenagers and her lazy husband, longs for more out of life, but hasn’t a clue how to make that happen. In fact, her tendency to overreact and put herself in embarrassing situations sabotages her own efforts to assert herself.
Helen impulsively starts writing a spy novel whose main character exudes traits Helen tries to embody in her own life: power, assertiveness, and the ability to kick butt. However, this persona doesn’t quite manage to keep her out of trouble, or jail. With help from a cast of quirky characters, such as her hippie best friend, a free-spirited drifter, and a pair of fashionable gay store owners, Helen just might be able to pull off the transformation of a lifetime.

She soon learns that commuting between life and afterlife presents complications that go way beyond traffic jams and office politics. Not even death always wipes the slate clean. As Dana is drawn deeper into the secrets of her client’s past, she realizes she must finally face the dark ones from her own.
