New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Hart's good-hearted spirit just can't say no to an earthly rescue in the fourth Bailey Ruth Ghost novel... As far as emissaries from Heaven's Department of Good Intentions go, Bailey Ruth is far from the top of the go-to list for assignments in the eyes of her boss, Wiggins. So she's surprised when she's dropped off on the outskirts of her old hometown, Adelaide, Oklahoma, at the home of young Nick Magruder. When a window cracks and a rifle barrel is thrust inside, only Bailey Ruth's hasty intervention saves Nick from taking a bullet. But after she materializes to reassure him, she finds she can't go back to vanishing. What gives? It turns out Bailey's been tricked by Nick's late aunt to come to his rescue, which means Wiggins has no idea where she is--and now she may be trapped in Adelaide forever. Unless she can help snare the person who wants Nick dead...
