Ghost in the Wind by E.J. Copperman is the seventh book in the “Haunted Guesthouse” mystery series. Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime, December 2015
Never meet your heroes—especially when they’re dead.
Guesthouse owner, single mother, and reluctant ghost whisperer Alison Kerby is about to sit down to movie night with her family and friends when she’s struck speechless. Floating before her is the ghost of her musical idol, 1960s English rock star Vance McTiernan. He’s in desperate need of help from Alison and her resident ghostly gumshoe, Paul Harrison.
Reports claim that four months ago, Vance’s daughter died from a drug overdose. Vance, however, thinks she was murdered. While Alison agrees to help, Paul is suspicious of Vance’s motives. But after the body of the alleged killer is found in the movie room, Alison and Paul must act quickly before someone else finds a stairway to heaven.
This is one of my favorite series that I eagerly await each year and every time I read a book in the series, it brings me laughter and excitement. Alison sees the ghost of a childhood idol and takes his case against the wishes of her ghostie partner. The author does a wonderful job in setting up this fast-paced, action-filled drama that had me devouring every word on the page. The growth of these beloved characters and the bond they share keeps me coming back to Harbor Haven because I know an adventure awaits me that will put me smack dab in the middle of all the fun. The mystery was well-executed and I love how the author played it out keeping me guessing on other factors, especially that little twist at the end. Good job! I love the internal quips from Alison that keeps me laughing and in this book, the author put together a jam session that OMG, if only I was there, I would be in heaven. This book was both engaging and entertaining and I look forward to the next book in this delightfully charming series.
