Woo-Woo the novel captures the spirit of the remote Eastern Shore enclave of Cape Charles, Virginia. The book so inspired Cape Charles Distillery that it named its signature vodka after the book. When you buy a bottle of Woo-Woo Vodka at the distillery in Cape Charles you get a signed copy of the book with it. This could very well be the only book that comes with an elixir. Sip, read and smile.

Carter Rossi moves to Cape Charles, Virginia, for the same reasons as many of the town’s residents—to find solitude and reboot his life. Carter quickly discovers an eclectic mix of new arrivals and historic families. Despite political and cultural differences, the groups coexist in harmony. Carter meets the mysterious and beautiful Rose Portman, a parapsychologist who is attempting to find out why Cape Charles is a hotbed for paranormal activity. Could it be the asteroid strike? She is on a quest to discover whether one of the town’s resident apparitions is her long-lost great aunt, who died mysteriously around 1920. Rose and Carter’s journey is sometimes hilarious, sensual, and spiritually insightful, bending the edges of imagination and reality.
