House flippers Jack & Juniper agree to lend and help prep their latest purchase—The Doctors House—an old Victorian mansion to act as the eerie setting for the town’s Halloween bash, they’re expecting to find missing floor boards, and pesky bats, not the ghostly specter of the murdered Doctors Wife.
But when the head of the council is found stuffed in a trunk in the attic, it appears history is repeating.
As June and the team, carry on with party preparations, they unravel a century of family secrets, whispers of lunacy—and the number one suspect goes on the run. But the victim’s family insists that the ball must go on, even with a killer on the loose. With Halloween fast approaching, June sees the woman in white and wonders if keeping the killer out was ever really a possibility. Now she’s desperate to unmask the killer before the Annual Halloween Bash turns into even more of a deadly haunt…

A quick yet satisfyingly full read perfect for anyone who feels their family is dysfunctional.
Jack and Juni were together until they weren't.  He "replaced" her with Sally Big Boobs, who really could never replace Juniper in any capacity. They are business partners and best friends, even when what is bothering them seems other worldly.
Set in a small town where everyone seems to know each other's business before they have time to understand it themselves, and where everyone seems to be related in some way, sharp or form, this house plays a huge a role as any of the other characters. Add in spooky music and the occasional (yet regular) appearance of a woman in white and this has the makings of a classic Halloween horror story.
Suitable for readers from high school age and above.

Rachael Stapleton lives in a Second Empire Victorian home with her husband and two children in Ontario, Canada and enjoys writing in the comforts of aged wood and arched dormers.
