“. . .Though she longs to live out her days at Hibiscus House, Olivia’s niece Charlotte has other plans. The real-estate market in Savannah is booming, and the conniving Charlotte hopes to move her aunt into a home for seniors so that she can turn the house into a highly profitable bed and breakfast. It quickly becomes apparent, however, that Charlotte has a powerful, if invisible, enemy. . . the ghost of long-deceased Cyrus Thornheart. Though Cyrus appears to possess remarkable powers, his presence becomes problematic when Olivia’s belief in him convinces others she is becoming senile. Johnson tells this tale with much grace and wit. . . Spirit Willing: A Savannah Hunting is a subtle and suasive ghost story.” — Kirkus Reviews
