After eighteen years of showbiz life in Los Angeles, Charlotte is becoming a local in her family home of New Orleans – even joining a Mardi Gras parade dance krewe. When she catches a tour guide telling the story of the eerie chandelier hanging in her Garden District window, Charlotte’s quest for answers about its origins leads her to Robert, a guide whose house is suddenly haunted. 

A sceptic, Robert doesn’t want to believe the activity is linked to a Mason jar of marbles recently returned to him after he’d left the heirloom at his family’s grave site. Charlotte tours historic cemeteries while looking for people who might want to fake a haunting. She and her beau celebrate her big break playing one of the “7 Sisters” in the latest Clarence Pool movie, but will the premiere even happen with Hurricane Isaac growing?

"Whether you’ve been there or not, Laura Cayouette brings New Orleans to life. Her Charlotte Reade character isn’t just great at unraveling mysteries, she’s a terrific guide through the music, food and culture of the city."
