Alison Kerby’s guesthouse is already crowded with spirits. The last thing she needs is a whole new batch of haunts settling in.
As Alison’s reputation as “the ghost lady” grows, so does her business—and not always in a way she’d like. Tourists may be flocking to her guesthouse for a chance to glimpse her resident spirits, but her special abilities are also bringing unwanted private investigation cases to her door. And she has no choice but to take a case when the local homeless man is found murdered under mysterious circumstances, just hours after asking for help in exorcising a specter.
If that weren’t enough to deal with, Alison’s other PI case soon turns fatal, as the mistress she was spying on for a jealous wife turns up dead as well. The cases seem like they couldn’t possibly be linked, but with a mountain of clues, motives and suspects—both living and dead—Alison will have to think fast before someone else checks out for good…
Allison, her daughter and their resident ghosts are caught up in the life and death of a homeless man who had asked for Alison’s help in getting rid of the ghosts that were following him around and driving him a bit around the bend. She begged off and refused to help. If only she’d gotten involved her life would not have gotten so hectic and full of danger.
This series is one of my favorites in the paranormal cozy genre. The author really does keep it real, even with the addition of ghosts in her guest house. Let’s face it many of us have felt ghostly or spirit sensations at one time or another and just shrugged it off. Heck, we had a family ghost living with us for years. So I can enjoy this book along with the rest of the series knowing it all could actually happen one day.
FTC Full Disclosure: I received this book as a gift from a friend and decided that it was well worth reviewing.
