Life has settled back into some semblance of normal for Graciela Harper and her friends in Heron Creek. Of course for Gracie, that means a new ghost knocking on her door asking for favors.

When she sees the spirit of a teenage girl who has been missing for over a year, Gracie knows she has to help, even if she would rather spend all day in bed with the mayor instead. As she

Not Quite Mine is out today! I hope that you enjoy the continuation of Gracie's life in Heron Creek - if you haven't started the series, the first one (Not Quite Dead) is free!

Here are the links to all the Lowcountry Mysteries!

Before I opened this novel, I was down on my reading luck : 5 books I'd opened, 5 books I'd put down. I didn't know what to do when of course, I thought of Lyla Payne ! Not one of her books ever let me down, I adore that series, I was sure I would love that one. Every time I get back to Heron Creek, it feels like I'm actually there, keeping up with dear friends in a place that I love, learning about their new troubles ('cause believe me, you never get bored there !) and biting my nails until I f ...more

Graciela Harper stopped the curse that has threatened to destroy her family for hundreds of years! what?

If you thought Gracie's adventures reached their pinnacle already, you would be sorely mistaken. It's sometimes hard for readers to come back to their beloved book bffs when it seems their stories are over. All the questions that run through our minds such as "is this new book going to ruin it?" "Should I just quit reading while the story is still good?" "Is this author just trying to m

Another Home Run For Gracie

Each and every time I pick up a Lowcountry mystery I feel like I’m visiting with friends and catching up on all that’s transpired while I’ve been away. Gracie, Beau, Amelia, Leo … all of the Heron Creek residents leave you feeling like you could visit South Carolina and walk right into their lives. I find myself chatting about them as if they are real people -- because they are -- to me.

Gracie gets back to the ghostly basics in Not Quite Mine when her newest impatient

This one might be my favorite

After the whirlwind of events in Not Quite Right that wrapped up the curse storyline, I was pleasantly surprised to dive into a slightly less crazy installment of this series. Not Quite Mine follows Gracie and her motley crew through more ghostly encounters, family mysteries and introductions to some surprising and intriguing new faces. The more I read these books, the more I fall in love with each character, making me wish I lived in Heron Creek right alongside of t

i couldn't believe it when i finished the last book to find out that Not Quite Mine would be released in such a short time. Gracie appears to be taking some downtime and looks like she and the Mayor are able to get past their differences and work on their relationship, this does come close to being on the rocks again but Gracie has started to lean on her friends a little more and not get into quite so much trouble. Saying that though she does however end up with a new ghost and only departed in ...more

Another great addition to the Lowcountry Mysteries!! Now that Gracie has some down time from all the chaos that Mama Lottie brought with her, another ghost, one that hits close to home, engages her in a mystery that has her juggling her loyalty to Leo and her desire to help her ghosts. This books is a lot less stressful than the last few, but just as enjoyable! It is setting up a lot of questions that need to be answered, and adds some new questions to the mix. I cannot wait for the next one! C' ...more

A fabulous continuation of an incredible story!

Gracie has such a warm place in my heart! This installment is just as wonderful as the rest of the series. The writing is crisp and intelligent and the story lines intertwine in surprising and enjoyable ways. The author has an incredible gift for presenting these stories in a thought-provoking way and making it so easy to emotionally invest in the characters. You won't regret keeping up with Heron Creek!

Gracie Harper has finally started to relax and settle back into life in Heron Creek. Of course, relaxation is cut short when another ghost appears. This ghost is different though, familiar. As Gracie starts her adventure with her new ghost, while also working on her quest for Henry, she finds herself deeper in the family tree of the Boones.


Another great read from Lyla Payne. 5 stars from me. I'm looking forward to the next one.

Oh my goodness! I know I keep saying I love this series, but really it just keeps getting better! I fall more in my love with Leo, each new novel. So much more I need to know there! I love the way Gracie solves a ghost mystery every book! Henry gave us a clue!!! If that isn't reason enough to read the book, I don't know what is! Lyla/Trisha keeps on you on toes the entire book! ...more

This book in the series was a little different than the other books. A nice change. The characters, their relationship to each other, and their dialogue with each other is fun. I find these stories intense and never disappoint.
