Description:

When Maddie Kosloski’s career flatlines, she retreats to her wine-country hometown for solace and cheap rent. Railroaded into managing the local paranormal museum, she’s certain the rumors of its haunting are greatly exaggerated. But a new ghost may be on the loose. A fresh corpse in the museum embroils Maddie in murders past and present.

With her high school bully as one of the officers in charge, Maddie doubts justice will be served. When one of her best friends is arrested, she’s certain it won’t be.

Maddie grapples with ghost hunters, obsessed taxidermists, and the sexy motorcyclist next door as outside forces threaten. And as she juggles spectral shenanigans with the hunt for a killer, she discovers there truly is no place like home.

My Thoughts:

This book follows Maddie as she has currently found herself unemployed and back in the states.  After spending a night with her friends Adele and Harper and finds herself being roped into running the Perfectly Proper Paranormal Museum that her friend Adele owns while Adele sets up a Tea Room next door.  While Adele and Harper are checking out the Tea Room they find Christy Huntington who Adele has history with being that Adele's ex-fiance was found doing the deed with Christy.  Now Maddie finds herself investigating to find out what happened to Christy and who would meet and murder her in Adele's Tea Room?  Was it the man she had a fling with that ruined Adele's relationship?  Was it Adele being the woman who was cheated on?  Or was it someone else?

Maddie also finds herself dealing with a detective who she has had a bad history with they went to school together and Maddie found herself on the wrong side of her old classmate.  Being stuck in a locker at school didn't help her.

I enjoyed reading this book and meeting all the different people Maddie deals with and her friends.  Add mystery to that and you've got a great mystery geared towards all kinds of people.  Plus who doesn't like a cat added to a paranormal museum?  Definitely a great story for all those paranormal cozy readers!
