To Maggie Mayfair, a Bayou belle living in a French Quarter building whose residents are as eccentric as its architecture, nothing much comes as a surprise. Nothing, that is, except the news that her beloved home has just been put up for sale. 1313 Royal Street is so much more than a place to live--over the years Maggie's quirky neighbors have become like family. Thanks to some East Coast city slicker, they all face eviction--until Maggie decides to tap into the local folklore to scare away prospective buyers. But as strange phenomena that aren't part of the hoax begin to happen, something even more unexpected materializes between Maggie and the building's newest tenant, a writer named Nick...
Manhattan investment banker Nick Gerard measures success by his balance sheet. His roots are in Louisiana, but it's a place he's barely had time to visit, much less live--until now. On doctor's orders, Nick has to take it easy for awhile--so where else to vacation but the Big Easy? He plans to go undercover to straighten out the problems he's been having trying to sell the building at 1313 Royal Street. But what Nick doesn't count on is a stubborn group of tenants, a ghost with the sniffles, and Maggie Mayfair--a blithe spirit who makes him dream of staying forever....
