From the Inside Flap
Clara Buchanan has run her modest hometown newspaper for just over a year when an epidemic of paranormal sightings breaks the usual fare of football scores and family reunions. Flying saucers and dead relatives come to visit? Fake news. Clearly. But then Hiram Lamb is found gut-shot on family property in the company of his adopted brother, and Clara's confidence to distinguish fact from fiction erodes when her own investigation becomes guided or influenced by phenomena which she can neither discount nor explain.

The Lambs, town bullies and local powers-that-be, are attempting to cheat slow-minded Butch out of his inheritance, namely the land on which his candy shop rests as well as the home left to his stepfather by Butch's mother to hold for him. Narrated by Clara Sue Buchanan, a big city reporte come home to roost and run the town newspaper, Clara and her cousin, the sheriff, investigate and drag out a batch of dirty linen the Lambs would like to stay hidden, including some long-ago murders. The method by which they are thwarted by Butch's long-dead mother is clever by half.
The "supernatural happenings" seem red herrings never really explained to any satisfaction, and mostly seem thrown in as examples of "small town hysteria and rumor."
Stick with the story and you'll enjoy it.
