Book Blurb #53: Pekoe-Boo Baby

Welcome again to Book Blurb Friday.  If you’re a newbie, here’s the scoop so you understand what follows.  Please click HERE or click the tab under the blog header for details of the Book Blurb Friday meme.  This is the shortened, abridged version:

Write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book.

Below is this week’s “book cover,” offered for our creative blurbs by the talented and generous Kathy Matthews at Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy.  My book blurb follows.

Pekoe-Boo Baby
(147 words)
Earline Greyson inherited Pekoe-Boo Baby from her Aunt Isadora. The shop is a must-visit on Savannah’s famous River Walk, but not for its teas and spices. Legend claims a ghost is in residence, but Earline believes in the here and now, not the hereafter.
Her disbelief is tested with a teacup that disappears and reappears, a shelf of spices that refuse to stay alphabetized, and a pot of tea that brews itself.
Forced to acknowledge something bizarre is afoot, she grudgingly contacts well-known ghost hunter Milo Fogg, who arrives with his cynical grandson, Gavin.
While Milo hunts the ghost, Earline and Gavin pair up to uncover a logical explanation for the eerie happenings.  But the answer isn’t simple and the deeper they dig, the worse things become, until it seems likely that Aunt Isadora was brewing something much hotter to handle than a simple cup of tea.
