As a busy real estate agent for the rich and famous, a few carefree days at Elk Island Ranch is exactly what Lena Thomas needs. The spectacular Colorado ranch is the year-round playground of David Oliver, an Australian singer songwriter and one of the world's best-selling recording artists. The immaculate private ski slopes and chef-prepared meals are a welcome reprieve from her demanding job until an after-dinner request turns her attention back to work-related matters. David wants Lena to help a family friend sell a recently inherited castle – the infamous Glen Eyrie Castle in Colorado Springs. Built by a Civil War hero and generous philanthropist, the castle is rumored to be haunted by several spirits. Lena, the youngest agent promoted to vice president at Chamberlain International Realty, is pragmatic and intelligent. Only after she is severely injured during a ghostly encounter does Lena believe in the paranormal. Recovering from her injuries in the hospital, Lena must depend on her sister, her best friend, and her real estate intern to help unravel the secrets of Glen Eyrie Castle. From richly developed characters and terrifying plot twists to wine pairings and unique recipes, "Civil" will satisfy the even most discerning of readers.
