Pre-order available: The Ghosts You Left Behind, Coffee & Ghosts 4

Releasing on October 31, 2021!

The Ghosts You Left BehindIf Katy and Malcolm want a future, they’ll need to survive the past.

When Katy and Malcolm discover a secret stash of Springside ghosts, they can’t tell if they’re on a rescue mission, walking into a trap—or dealing with something far more sinister.

But the simple act of freeing the ghosts sets the past on a collision course with the present.

Katy has always known the past can haunt. Usually, that’s something she can fix with freshly brewed coffee and some Tupperware.

This time, old enemies lurk in the shadows, pulling strings and weaving inescapable webs.

When she falls in, survival may be impossible. But to escape, Katy must navigate threads from the past, deal with capricious spirits, dubious allies, and ruthless adversaries.

And if she fails?

No one she loves will have a future.

  • Episode 1: The Ghosts You Left Behind

Come for the coffee, stay for the supernatural adventure. There’s more than one way to catch a ghost, and it’s never been this fun!

Reluctant necromancer Katy Lindstrom is worried about mixing business with pleasure. All she wants is a few hours alone with her more-than-a-business-partner, Malcolm Armand.

Before they can sort through their feelings over a cup of Kona blend, another necromancer lands on Katy’s doorstep.

Malcolm’s father.

He brings with him tales of old betrayals and fresh lies. But a bigger danger lurks in Springside—a powerful ghost sent to destroy Malcolm’s brother.

This is just the start.

After Katy uncovers long-held family secrets, she finds herself entangled in past and present—and on a mission to find the truth. To unravel the mystery that links her family with Malcolm’s, she’ll need to bargain with a powerful entity and face retribution from the necromancer community.

Where Katy must go, Malcolm can’t follow. This time around, she’ll need to make the ultimate sacrifice. This time, to save Malcolm, Springside, and everything she loves, Katy will need to give them up forever.

When Christmas brings both strangers and ghosts of the past to Springside, ghost-catcher and expert coffee-brewer Katy Lindstrom fears her new business, new relationship, and quiet hometown will never be the same.

She’s right.

This time, to keep Malcolm, Springside, and even the world safe, Katy must do the one thing she vowed never to do.

And once she does, there’s no turning back.
