Wagtail, Virginia, the top pet-friendly getaway in the United States, is gearing up for a howling good Halloween—until a spooky murder shakes the town to its core . . .

Holly Miller doesn’t believe in spirits, but the Sugar Maple Inn is filled with guests who do. The TV series in development, Apparition Apprehenders, has descended on Wagtail’s annual Halloween festivities to investigate supernatural local legends, and Holly has her hands full showing the ghost hunters a scary-fun time.

But the frights turn real when Holly’s Jack Russell, Trixie, and kitten, Twinkletoes, find a young woman drowned in the Wagtail Springs Hotel’s bathhouse—the spot of the town’s most infamous haunting. The crime scene is eerily similar to the creepy legend, convincing Holly that the death wasn’t just accidental. Now she’ll have to race to catch a flesh-and-blood killer—before someone else in town gives up the ghost . . .

My Thoughts:

In Wagtail people are gearing up for Halloween included are a group of ghost hunters who are going to film their show in Wagtail.  Holly Miller doesn't believe in ghosts and things that go bump in the night.  What she doesn't count on is Wagtail having their own murder mystery.  When one of the members of the ghost hunting group Mallory winds up drowning in a Hotel Bath House she could sit up in Holly wonders what really happened?  There are no shortage of possibilities in this situation! As Holly tries to find out what happened the town seems very divided in their opinions of what happened to Mallory who wanted her out of the way and why?

I loved going to Wagtail meeting people and seeing what Holly is up too. It was also great learning more history and how it plays in this mystery!  I really enjoyed learning about the history of Wagtail and some residents who lived there.  Definitely a great book to read during Halloween season.
