Sometimes an inheritance is as much work as a job. Mitchell Bogaert is about to discover this in ways he'd never imagined. Can he create a ghost story in time for the annual New Cheltenham contest--one that won't embarrass him? And how is he supposed to do this with a secret fear of ghosts?
The Ghosts of New Cheltenham
Mitchell Bogaert hasn’t done much with his life in the four years since college, to which his negative-digits bank account and credit score will attest. So when news of an inheritance from a man he hasn’t seen in years arrives on the same day as his eviction notice, Mitchell considers the odd terms of the will to be a no-brainer.
Sure, he’ll move into a building in the tourist village of New Cheltenham. Of course, he’d be happy to live there for a year as a condition of inheritance. And yes, he’ll suffer the humiliation of creating, entering, and presenting at the annual Dickens Ghost Story Competition. Free room and board for a year plus a rather substantial inheritance to boot? Who wouldn’t?
But someone either doesn’t want him in New Cheltenham or doesn’t want him to receive that inheritance, because the more he works on his story, the more convinced he is that a ghost resides in the narrow building he now calls home.
What’s a guy to do when the ghosts of his past converge on his Christmas present?
