A new novel is “Haunted” by Randy Wayne White. The house is historic, but it’s been slated to be razed and replaced by condos – unless Hannah Smith can do something about it. She has been hired by a wealthy Palm Beach widow to prove that the house’s seller didn’t disclose everything he knew about it – including its role in a bloody Civil War skirmish (in which Hannah’s great-uncle had a part) and the suicide – or was it murders of the two previous owners. Hannah sees it as win-win opportunity: she can stop the condo project while tracking her family history, what she doesn’t count on is… human obsession.
