Description:

Perfectly pressed. Perfectly proper. Perfectly deadly. 

Paranormal museum owner Maddie Kosloski thinks she has the perfect paranormal exhibit for the harvest festival—a haunted grape press. But before she can open the exhibit, she’s accused of stealing the antique press. And when her accuser is found murdered, all eyes turn to Maddie.

Solving the crime is the last thing on Maddie’s mind, but her mother insists she investigate. Does her mother have a secret agenda? And why has the local charity, Ladies Aid, seemingly gone gangster?

In this light, cozy mystery, haunted houses, runaway wine barrels, and murder combine in a perfect storm of chaos. Facing down danger and her own over-active imagination, Maddie must unearth the killer before she becomes the next ghost to haunt her museum.

My Thoughts:

This book follows Maddie Kosloski as she is working at the harvest festival she has found the perfect exhibit artifact a grape wine press unfortunately the owner's ex-husband is adament that the press is stolen and filed a report file.  Before Maddie is able to get to the bottom of this stolen press Maddie finds Romeo dead in a wine stopping barrel.  Who killed Romeo and why?

While all this is going Maddie's mother is acting very strange and Maddie can't figure out why.  Add to this Maddie is involved in setting up a room at a halloween haunted house.  She definitely has her hands full trying to peice together who would want to kill Romeo, could it have been his son Leo, who wasn't happy with his father?  Or his ex-wife?  There are no shortage of possibilities.  It's up to Maddie to figure it out if her employee Leo is guilty or was it someone else?

I loved this book it brought so much with all various mysteries and reading Maddie get to the bottom them.  Ms. Weiss pulls you in and has you so glued into the book you won't want to put it down.  Definitely a great story with adventure and mystery!  I think anyone who likes Victoria Laurie mysteries will enjoy this series as well such a fabulous book!
