Publisher Comments:

Penelope Thornton-McClure manages a Rhode Island bookshop rumored to be haunted. When a bestselling author drops dead signing books, the first clue of foul play comes from the store's full-time ghost-a PI murdered on the very spot more than fifty years ago.

Is he a figment of Pen's overactive imagination? Or is the likable, fedora-wearing specter the only hope Pen has to solve the crime?

 

Synopsis:

This first in a new series introduces Penelope Thornton-McClure, manager of a haunted Rhode Island bookshop. When a bestselling author drops dead while signing books, the first clue comes from the store's ghost, a PI murdered in the 1940s. Original.

Lucy Little, July 29, 2012 (view all comments by Lucy Little)
I'm a fan of Cleo Coyle's Coffee House Mysteries so was interested in this book when I saw it was written by Cleo Coyle under the name Alice Kimberly. It has an interesting story line in which the heroine, Penelope, is in contact with a ghost, Jack, who helps her solve the mystery at hand. Without giving too much away, the ghost is a private investigator who died in Penelope's bookstore many years ago. And now an author, whose subject is the P.I., dies mysteriously in the bookstore. It is intriguing to watch Penelope and Jack's relationship unfold, but otherwise, the story lacked the draw of the Coffee House Mysteries. I found myself skimming through parts that didn't hold my interest. There are several others in the series so I think I'll read the next one due to the likability of the two main characters.
