Summary from Goodreads: Zora Novak has been framed.

When someone burns down the home of the school janitor and he dies in the blaze, everyone in Addamsville, Indiana, points a finger at Zora. Never mind that Zora has been on the straight and narrow since her father was thrown in jail. With everyone looking for evidence against her, her only choice is to uncover the identity of the real killer. There’s one big problem—Zora has no leads. No one does. Addamsville has a history of tragedy, and thirty years ago a similar string of fires left several townspeople dead. The arsonist was never caught.

Now, Zora must team up with her cousin Artemis—an annoying self-proclaimed Addamsville historian—to clear her name. But with a popular ghost-hunting television show riling up the townspeople, almost no support from her family and friends, and rumors spinning out of control, things aren’t looking good. Zora will have to read between the lines of Addamsville’s ghost stories before she becomes one herself.

Review: This book gave me all the angry feels. Everyone in town is out to get Zora and she is only trying to keep them safe. There was a wonderful air around the town and its ghosts. I loved how the author used the fun aspects of tv ghost hunters. It made the story feel current. The ending felt like they left it open for a sequel, so I will be keeping my eyes out for another book by this author.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.


  1. I felt the same way about the ending. I mean, that last line was inviting a sequel.

    1. I really hope the author does write one. I would be down to read it.
