Publisher's Summary

When Katy Logan moves her troubled teen daughter Jett to the Appalachian community of Solom, she envisions a peaceful rural lifestyle on her new husband's farm.
There's more to Solom than she ever imagined. Gordon Smith's first wife Rebecca died under mysterious circumstances, and Katy believes her spirit is still in the house. Gordon's great-grandfather was a horseback preacher who vanished while on a mission one wintry night, and local lore holds that he returns from time to time seeking vengeance. Gordon teases Katy and Jett with a story about a wicked scarecrow that comes in from the fields at night to slake an unnatural thirst.
When the legends come to life, Katy and Jett discover the Smith family secrets cut deep. And they must face the supernatural menace together or become part of Solom's legends forever.

We take care of our own in Solom..

Katie Logan has remarried to a slightly odd and creepy widower named Gordon Smith. She leaves her job at the Wells Fargo bank in Charlotte, and moves herself and her year old daughter Jessica AKA Jett, a few hours away to the sleepy little town of Solom, North Carolina. With her daughters recent involvement in drugs, moving away seems like a good idea so she wont follow in the footsteps of her father. She will get to be a stay at home housewife and will be around more to keep an eye on things. But she is alone during the day, and Rebecca, the original lady of the house seems to be hanging on as a ghost- whether to scare her off or help her is to be decided. Gordon shares the legend of the scarecrow over dinner, telling the girls that after the harvest the scarecrow climbs down off its post, and goes into the barn to devour one of the animals. Its blood lust sated for a year, it climbs back onto its post. But in the moonlight, you can see the blood on the fabric face if you look just right. Just an old wives tale.. right? With creepy goats, a scarecrow with an agenda, a ghost that seems to be possessing Katie, and a town that doesn't get any cellular service there is plenty of action in this book. Scott Nicholson does a great job of tying everything together for an enjoyable listen.
Teri Schnaubelt does an outstanding job fleshing out this story. Her Gordon voice gave me shivers because I thought the guy was just so creepy. Her teenage girl voice is spot on with the snark too.
