When Miss Lana makes an accidental bid at the Tupelo auction and winds up the mortified owner of an old inn, she doesn't realize there's a ghost in the fine print. Naturally, Mo and Dale's Desperado Detective Agency opens a paranormal division to solve the mystery of the ghost's identity, giving them an opportunity to interview it for their history assignment and get extra credit. But Mo and Dale realize that the inn isn't the only haunted place in Tupelo Landing; people can also be haunted by their own past. As they handily track down the truth about the inn's ghost (with some help from the new kid in town), they also discover the truth about a great many other people. This laugh-out-loud ghostly Southern mystery can be enjoyed by all readers, including old friends of Mo and Dale and those visiting Tupelo Landing for the first time.
