Publisher Comments:

Alison Kerbys guesthouse is already crowded with spirits. The last thing she needs is a whole new batch of haunts settling in.

As Alisons reputation as “the ghost lady” grows, so does her business—and not always in a way shed 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 werent enough to deal with, Alisons 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 couldnt 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…

Synopsis:

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.

Synopsis:

Alison Kerby’s guesthouse is haunted all year round. Surviving the dead of winter, though? That’s a spooky proposition.

Even with a blizzard bearing down on New Jersey, Alison can count on at least two guests—Paul and Maxie, the stubborn ghosts who share her shore town inn. Then there’s her widowed mother, who hasn’t just been seeing ghosts, she’s been secretly dating one: Alison’s father. But when he stands her up three times in a row, something’s wrong. Is he a lost soul…or a missing apparition?

Their only lead is an overdramatic spirit—stage name Lawrence Laurentz—who doesn’t take direction well and won’t talk until they find his killer. Alison will reluctantly play the part of PI, but when the clues take a sinister turn, the writing is on the wall: If Alison can’t keep a level head, this will be her father’s final act—and maybe her own.

Alison Kerby's guesthouse came with two guests who can't leave, because Paul and Maxie are ghosts. With a blizzard coming to New Jersey and two real guests who are not really enjoying their vacation, it doesn't help that Alison's mother has been dating a ghost: Alison's father. However, when he stands up her mother three times in a row, it's obvious something has happened. The bearer of bad tidings is an overly dramatic, and sometimes unhelpful spirit with the stage name of Lawrence Laurentz who won't tell the entire story until Alison solves his murder. Alison, once again, puts on her PI hat to investigate and finds some unexpected help and some sinister characters.

I love this series, it is funny, the characters are likeable, and the ghosts are quirky. I'm looking forward to the next book.
