I'm also joining in Book Beginnings on Friday. It's hosted by Rose City Reader

I'm hoping to read this one soon.  I really enjoyed the first book.

First Chapter

"There is no such thing as a ghost." Eva Chevalier turned her pointy nose up in the air and chortled.  "It's preposterous.  Nonsense, folderol, fiddle-faddle."

From 56% on my e-reader...

"I wouldn't be quite so bold about accusing other people if I were in your shoes."

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Wagtail, Virginia, the top pet-friendly getaway in the United States, is gearing up for a howling good Halloween—until a spooky murder shakes the town to its core . . .

Holly Miller doesn’t believe in spirits, but the Sugar Maple Inn is filled with guests who do. The TV series in development, Apparition Apprehenders, has descended on Wagtail’s annual Halloween festivities to investigate supernatural local legends, and Holly has her hands full showing the ghost hunters a scary-fun time.

But the frights turn real when Holly’s Jack Russell, Trixie, and kitten, Twinkletoes, find a young woman drowned in the Wagtail Springs Hotel’s bathhouse—the spot of the town’s most infamous haunting. The crime scene is eerily similar to the creepy legend, convincing Holly that the death wasn’t just accidental. Now she’ll have to race to catch a flesh-and-blood killer—before someone else in town gives up the ghost . . .
