When Rex Ferris's great, great Uncle Nate dies and makes Rex promise to take care of the Ferris Mansion and "everything in it," Rex has no idea the "everything" includes ghosts. Now he's stuck with four of them, all actors. With maintenance costs rising, Rex does the only thing he can think of. He turns the mansion into a murder mystery weekend destination with incredible "special effects." Then Rex makes one fateful decision: he advertises in The Traveler's Companion.

Trapped in the basement of the Traveler's Companion's offices, dreaming of traveling the world and reviewing exotic resorts, is Talia East. It's her job to format ads for the magazine. But when one strange ad comes across her desk which begins, "Vacation with the Dead," she has a brilliant idea. IF she can write one knock-out article and IF the effects are even half as amazing as Rex Ferris promises, she might just land her dream job. But what Talia finds at the Ferris mansion will forever change her life and her understanding of true, everlasting love.

Judy Fitzwater is the author of the award-nominated JENNIFER MARSH MYSTERY SERIES, the suspense novels, DROWNING IN AIR and NO SAFE PLACE, and THE ROCKY ROAD TO PUBLISHING: ADVICE ON WRITING. Visit her website at

About the Author

Judy Fitzwater grew up an Air Force brat and has lived in nine states, including Maine and Hawaii. Her first published mystery, DYING TO GET PUBLISHED, was plucked from a stack of unsolicited manuscripts at Ballantine Books. It was nominated for an Agatha Award for Best First Mystery. The subsequent seven-book series, The Jennifer Marsh Mysteries, was a delight for her to write, especially the scenes with Jennifer's quirky writers' group. All seven are now available in Kindle editions. Judy's suspense thriller, DROWNING IN AIR, is now in paperback, as well as a Kindle edition! And don't miss her very funny romantic comedy, VACATIONING WITH THE DEAD, also available in both Kindle and paperback editions, which is filled with ghosts and mayhem.
Her latest release is THE ROCKY ROAD TO PUBLISHING: ADVICE ON WRITING, a fun and honest conversation about what it's like to be a writer and what it takes to get published.
She has plans for more mystery, suspense, humor, and paranormal adventures and is currently working on one of her many writing projects.
