Bellweather Rhapsody is one of Kate’s most popular novels. The book starts fifteen years ago when a murder-suicide in room 712 at the old Bellweather Hotel with Minnie Graves as a witness to it all. Today, there are hundreds of high school musicians heading to the old hotel for the Statewide Festival and Minnie is heading back to face down her old demons. Things get complicated when a teenager disappears from the infamous room 712 and the search is on.

Another popular book by Racculia is Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts. The title character in this one is a bit of a loner as she prefers to keep to herself and watch her old Twin Peaks and X-Files books. Tuesday decides to venture out of her shell when a billionaire dies and leaves behind an epic treasure. The treasure hunt features clues inspired by Edgar Allen Poe and the puzzle loving Tuesday is on the case. She joins a ragtag group who must face the ghosts of their past if they want to find the treasure.
