The Black Butterfly

ALAN Picks

"Pennyís mother is a self-proclaimed ghost hunter who often leaves Penny behind while she investigates potential haunted properties. This time, Penny is forced to spend the Christmas holidays at the Black Butterfly, old inn on the coast of Maine, with a family friend who hasnít spoken to Pennyís mother for over 15 years. Lonely and feeling abandoned, Penny finds comfort in the hotel kitchen as Bubbles the cook shares exquisite dishes and culinary techniques with her. While trying to uncover reasons for the lack of communication between her mother and her motherís friend, Penny steps into second mystery involving a friendly ghost, a vindictive ghost, and a handsome, nice, eligible guy. 

Aspiring foodies will savor Vernickís ghostly mystery and romance served up between meals at the Black Butterfly Inn. Although Vernick starts off slow, things get exciting when the relationship between Penny and George heats up and details of an untimely death unfold."
