Currently Reading...

I'm currently reading The Ghost and the Bogus Bestseller by Cleo Coyle. This book is the sixth in the Haunted Bookshop Mystery series and was released last week. After 10 years, Jack is back!

Jack Shepard, the ghost of a 1940s private detective is back on the scene. A slightly snobbish customer has fled Buy the Book, unpaid novel in hand. It's more than the theft that concerns Penelope Thornton-McClure, it's the older woman's behavior. Concerned, Pen, accompanied by Jack, tracks the woman down. What they discover is a slightly decrepit apartment, a talking bird, and a dead body. While it appears that the troubled customer committed suicide, the scene doesn't quite add up. Pen and Jack agree-it's murder!
