Carmela, owner of Memory Mine scrapbooking shop, and her best friend Ava Gruiex, owner of Juju Voodoo, have a big project ahead. Melody Mayfeldt is converting an old mansion in the Faubourg Marigny district into an unforgettable haunted house for those who flock to New Orleans for a creepy fix. She needs Carmela's crafty touch to make the Medusa Manor come to life - and evoke the dead - in time for the upcoming horror convention, DiscordaCon.But Melody takes her house haunting a little too seriously - especially when her flaming body comes crashing through a tower window to welcome Carmela and Ava to the job.Someone wanted Carmela's client dead - very dead. Carmela's in some deep gumbo again and needs to crop out a killer from the throngs of people there for DiscordaCon and the big Galleries and Gourmets celebration. Then maybe it won't be so hard living in the Big Easy.
