Charleston Green is a work of women’s fiction penned by author Stephanie Alexander. Accessible to all readers with only one short scene of mild violence, this enjoyable tale mixes speculative and paranormal elements with relationship drama and family strife. Our protagonist is Tipsy Collins, a divorcee with three children, who is plagued by both an irritating ex-husband and the power to communicate with the dead. In her new house on Bennett Street, Tipsy discovers that couple Jane and Henry Mott are haunting the abode and that their martial arguments revolve around not being able to remember if one of them killed the other. So begins an intriguing and heartfelt drama.

The dual plot strands of the adorable characters in author Stephanie Alexander’s novel are sure to keep readers turning pages from cover to cover. For a story about ghosts and hauntings and custody battles, the air of the piece is wonderfully light for the most part and this is a genuinely enjoyable drama that uplifts as it unfolds. Alexander’s narration is filled with Southern charm and realistically drawn characters, and Tipsy, in particular, is a highly likable heroine who finds herself in the wake of some tough challenges as the plot twists and turns around her. I personally enjoyed the presentation of the genius-like Henry Mott the most, and the surprising conclusion to his and Jane’s plot. Overall, Charleston Green is a highly entertaining and enjoyable read for fans of women’s fiction; a cozy clairvoyant mystery and family saga.
