A ghost and her husband are prepared to haunt the house below before they’ll let their family sell the house that has been theirs for three generations. Miranda and Ben have been quite happy living in their haunted family home their entire lives. And now that they have passed on and joined the realm of family ghosts as well, they are looking forward to an afterlife spent with their children and grandchildren.

Unfortunately, their children (more specifically their daughter in law) have other plans. Plans that involve selling the more then slightly haunted house and moving to Florida. Plans that Miranda simply won’t have…
