After being abandoned by her husband in a KOA campground, Sissy Jaspers must return home to Grace, West Virginia and rebuild her broken life. Along for the journey is Hazel, a sweet and spirited older lady, who has the gift of making everything taste better. With help from Sissy´s father and brother, the two women turn an abandoned haunted house into a charming café. The Kitchen House, named for its resident ghosts, is a place of wonder where the living and dead coexist. The mystic café attracts patrons haunted by guilty secrets and burdened with grief. With a regular host of customers and a jamboree of spirits, The Kitchen House becomes the perfect venue for medium Pixie Moon-Dust to perform her psychic readings. As the physical world and spiritual world become intertwined, the lost souls are taught lessons of forgiveness and acceptance, which leads them to redemption and love. 1. Language: English.

It´s late summer 1972 in the redwood forests of northern California. It seems a safe and wondrous place, but some of the population of the town of Evergreen is growing pot in the trees, and others are bent on stealing it. Then there´s the coming folk festival, a jamboree bringing in musicians, music fans, war protesters, hippies, the Cossacks and other biker gangs, and the law, both local and federal. Skirting the edges are shades of the Manson family and the Mexican Mafia. Clifford Hickey is scheduled to perform at the festival in what might be his last guitar gig before heading off to law school to please his father. He arrives at the peaceful woodland campsite of his brother Alvaro, but within moments six armed men in badges crash the camp, and Alvaro runs. Clifford is arrested and roughly handcuffed. One of the sheriffs´ nephews has been murdered, and Alvaro is the posse´s quarry. When Clifford´s father and mother arrive on the scene, it´s the beginning of a confrontation between the Hickey family and the locals, including the Cossacks, who seemingly have their own agenda for Alvaro. Clifford, on the brink of adult life, becomes embroiled not only in a murder case but also in what becomes a battle between the Hickeys and the law and, ultimately, the Hickeys and their own past.

Why is everyone rushing to flee Tampa on a cruise ship to hell? Serge is back with a bullet, torn between homicide and souvenirs. So is Coleman, torn between getting hammered and getting more hammered. Then there´s good ol´ Jim Davenport, the E-Team, the Diaz Brothers, and Johnny Vegas, the Accidental Virgin, cranking up the fevered action as the pot boils over on a street called Lobster Lane. It´s reunion time in the Sunshine State, and we´re not just talking the family jamboree of that blood-soaked criminal clan, the McGraws, whose nastiest, meanest member is finally released from prison and heads south bent on revenge. On top of it all, the government is covering up a growing list of mysterious victims across Florida who may or may not be connected to a nefarious plot being hatched against national security. But wait! There´s more on the horizon! Who is the oddly familiar femme fatale named Rachael? Is Serge wrong that guns, drugs, and strippers don´t mix? What sets the Non-Confrontationalists off on a rampage? What finally brings Coleman and Lenny together? Will they succeed in building the biggest bong ever? And can Serge surf a rogue wave to victory? Batten the hatches, don the life jackets, and take cover as all these questions and more are answered in the latest adventure from the acclaimed author of Hurricane Punch. 1. Language: English.
