“You can take the girl out of the South, but you can’t take the South out of the girl.”
Jolene Athena Whitley left home a decade ago and has never looked back—until her dream job rejects her. Heartbroken, she vows to get her life back on track. If she can figure out the dirty secrets that flagged her file, the job as an FBI profiler is in the bag.
It would be the perfect plan—if everything she knew about the past wasn’t a lie. Whistler’s Hollow is populated and governed by supernaturals Jolene doesn’t know exist, and until she emerges as one, she’ll never be able to see what’s right in front of her face.
When she moves into her childhood home, everything goes awry: exotic animals invade her house, she lets her ex-bully seduce her, and her new job is teaching the snotty children of her former high school mean girls.
Through all of this, Jolene is determined to follow the clues to reveal all of the Hollow’s secrets. What she doesn’t know is how many of them are also her own.
Bless her heart…this might get ugly.
