Here's the set-up:
A paranormal conference at the most haunted hotel in the Blue Ridge Mountains goes haywire when ghost hunters accidentally stir up demons.
When Digger Wilson brings his paranormal team, Spirit Seekers International, to the White Horse Inn, he is skeptical that his dead wife will keep her half of the bargain. He doesn’t believe in ghosts, but just before she died, she promised to meet him there.
When one of the conference guests channels a mysterious presence and an Ouija board spells out a pet phrase known only to Digger and his wife, his convictions are challenged.
And when guests start to disappear, Digger and his daughter Kendra must face the circle of demons that view the hotel as their personal playground. Because soon the inn will be closing for good, angels can’t be trusted, and demons don’t like to play alone . . .

"Where do authors get their ideas?" is a common question:
For Speed Dating With The Dead, Nicholson says:
The Green Park Inn in Blowing Rock, NC, kept a "ghost register" at the desk for recording encounters. I hosted a paranormal conference there in 2008 that inspired the novel.
