One teeny weeny problem, I’m a mortal. Yep. I guess I got my granny Darla’s DNA.
Good news! I might not have spiritual powers but I have a mean set of baking skills. I’m delighted to be moving out of Whispering Falls, where y’all know I can’t live since I’m mortal, and to Celestial Falls, another small southern town where I’m opening Heavenly Desserts.

I’m beyond excited but fluff left my dough when Orin Reguila showed up. But that’s not all that put too much flour in my cookies, there just so happened to be a murder…when someone ate my cookie.

I just hope I can clear my name and save my business before The Marys make me pack up and go back to Whispering Falls.
