What do you do when your father comes to visit for a few days and won’t leave? When her mother dies, Sarah opens her home to her beloved widowed father Arnold. But his visit wears thin as he takes over her house–and her life. The more she gets to know him, the more she realizes that he’s not such a great guy after all; in fact, he’s driving her crazy. Then Sarah’s mother turns up as a very unwelcome ghost. How is Sarah going to get rid of them?
