Publisher Description

A handsome stranger. A dead billionaire. A citywide treasure hunt. Tuesday Mooney’s life is about to change . . . forevermore.

Tuesday Mooney is a loner. She keeps to herself, begrudgingly socializes, and spends much of her time watching old Twin Peaks and X-Files DVDs. But when Vincent Pryce, Boston’s most eccentric billionaire, dies—leaving behind an epic treasure hunt through the city, with clues inspired by his hero, Edgar Allan Poe—Tuesday’s adventure finally begins.
Puzzle-loving Tuesday searches for clue after clue, joined by a ragtag crew: a wisecracking friend, an adoring teen neighbor, and a handsome, cagey young heir. The hunt tests their mettle, and with other teams from around the city also vying for the promised prize—a share of Pryce’s immense wealth—they must move quickly. Pryce’s clues can't be cracked with sharp wit alone; the searchers must summon the courage to face painful ghosts from their pasts (some more vivid than others) and discover their most guarded desires and dreams.

A deliciously funny ode to imagination, overflowing with love letters to art, from The Westing Game to Madonna to the Knights of the Round Table, Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts is the perfect read for thrill seekers, wanderers, word lovers, and anyone looking for an escape to the extraordinary.

Fun story

Fun story! Most of these “older” people in book are 30. A lot of teen thoughts even in 30 year olds flashbacks. Probably should have realized by title was more of a teen book. Fun though

Absolutely Stunning.

I am a voracious reader and I have not had a reaction to a book like I did this in a very long time. An incredibly original plot that seamlessly touches on such heady topics as abuse, loss, loneliness, love...while taking you on a rollercoaster ride of literary genius. Ms. Racculia is a very generous with her audience, giving us all characters so real you almost believe the fantastical storyline could happen.
I don’t write many reviews, but after recommending it to two friends already, I hope Tuesday Mooney Talks To Ghosts gets the recognition it deserves.
