Not Quite True (a Lowcountry Mystery)
With Mayor Beau accused of abuse of power and facing federal indictment, a relentless curse after her unborn nephew, and a moody, uncommunicative spirit in her room, reluctant ghost-helper Graciela Harper figures she's got enough on her plate. The universe, as usual, figures otherwise. On a girls trip to Charleston that's meant to give Beau some space and cheer up her cousin, Amelia, a second ghost follows Gracie back to Heron Creek. As she digs into the mystery behind the Whistling Doctor of Dueler's Alley, things at home go from bad to worse. Leo's not talking to her, Amelia's depression is putting her health at risk, and Beau...well, maybe he's not as innocent as Gracie always believed. All that takes a back seat when Gracie's run off the road on her way back from a research trip, forcing her to face the possibility that her ghost's secrets might not be about harmless lost love after all. In fact, he's been the only person aware of certain documents for over two hundred years, and if Gracie helps unearth them she might find herself trapped underground...permanently.

About Lyla Payne
Lyla Payne has been publishing New Adult romance novels for a little over a year, starting with Broken at Love and continuing with the rest of the Whitman University series. She loves telling stories, discovering the little reasons people fall in love, and uncovering hidden truths in the world around us - past and present. In her spare time she cuddles her two dogs, pretends to enjoy exercising so that she can eat as much Chipotle as she wants, and harbors a deep and abiding hope that Zac Efron likes older women. She loves reading, of course, along with movies, traveling, and Irish whiskey. Lyla's hard at work, ALWAYS, and hopes to bring you more Whitman University antics and at least one more Lowcountry ghost tale before the end of the year. Lyla Payne is represented by Kathleen Rushall at Marsal Lyon Literary Agency.
