Short Story by Thea Hutcheson

$2.99 available in bundle


When Megan moves into her new house, things begin to disappear. Weird things like socks, decorative pins, and a cheap class ring. Things she just saw recently and don’t have a lot of value, but she misses them all the same. She can’t decide whether to blame it on her cheating ex or a klepto ghost. When her best friend sends a geeky ghost hunter her way, Megan finds a chance for romance and something she never expected in her wildest dreams.
