Carly Middleton either has ghosts in her attic or bats in her belfry, and neither option deems all that spectacular. She is apt to choose her craziness however, rather than admit that her new home in Lake Della, Wisconsin is haunted.

Some strange happenings are going on at Carly Middleton's new home in rural Wisconsin. Either she's got bats in her belfry or ghosts in her attic. Possibly both.

And a couple of female ghosts who once lived in her house and cause trouble. Phew! It was well-written and entertaining, with enough humor to make me smile whilst reading. While the plot left me raising my eyebrows a little at the end (their way of getting rid of the ghos ...more

I didn't think i'd like this book as much as I did!! Poor Carly has two ghosts living in her house, and they take a keen eye on the guys that stop by :) funnily enough with all the things happening in the book, I found Rags dying the most tear worthy!
Definitely give this a try :)
