Synopsis from Goodreads:
Welcome to the first Haunted Guest House mystery-the getaway every reader can afford.
Newly divorced Alison Kerby wants a second chance for herself and her nine-year-old daughter. She's returned to her hometown on the Jersey Shore to transform a Victorian fixer-upper into a charming-and profitable-guest house. One small problem: the house is haunted, and the two ghosts insist Alison must find out who killed them.
I’m very late in reading this one, but I finally got around to it and I’m so glad I did. This book reminds me so much of the old Ghost and Mrs. Muir TV series, but with a pair of ghosts instead of just one. Alison Kerby and her daughter have the difficult task of dealing with both of them.
There is humor laced throughout this book. The dialogue is witty and had me “laughing out loud” quite often. I especially enjoyed the conversations between Alison and the female ghost, Maxie. Alison sure had her hands full with Maxie, especially since the ghost finds nothing wrong with flirting with the living.
I devoured this book in just a couple of days. It’s an enjoyable mystery filled with laughter, strong characters and a clever storyline. It's the perfect mix of paranormal and mystery to make a unique cozy mystery series. Now, it’s time for me to read the backlist.
