Could this be the bitter end for Everly? It's almost Halloween, and the small island of Charm, North Carolina, is decked out for the festivities. When Everly Swan agrees to close her iced tea shop early to help her aunts host their annual haunted historic walking tour, she expects some good-natured spooks. But the night turns grave when one of the ghostly actors is found dead. To complicate matters, the victim scratched Everly's name into the ground before she died, making her a key suspect. Everly's potential beau, Detective Hays, takes the case—and he definitely doesn't want her getting involved. But Everly doesn't have much of a choice when a phantom sailor straight out of a local legend starts leaving her threatening messages ... With a local election underway, ghosts on the loose, and a search for long-lost buried treasure, Everly can't help but stir the pot! The fifth book in Bree Baker's acclaimed Seaside Café Mystery series, Closely Harbored Secrets is a frighteningly fun read!
