Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Melanie West and her grandmother Liza buy a purportedly haunted mansion with plans to turn it into a Bed and Breakfast, but they find a very real skeleton in their closet. In addition to dealing with the police, their own amateur investigation, the closed-mouthed town, their renovation, and a friendly ghost playing tricks, they find a new body that looks chillingly similar to Melanie herself. It's up to Melanie and Liza to get to the bottom of these murders to save their business and their lives. --

    Melanie West gave up a lucrative finance career in Portland to open a bed-and-breakfast with her grandmother Liza in a small Oregon town. While stripping wallpaper in the house, they are shocked to find a woman's body behind a hidden wall. With the remodeling project on hold while police investigate, Melanie and Liza start poking around on their own, asking people in town about the previous owners of the house. The body, they learn, was the former owner's wife, long thought to have abandoned her husband after an accident left him wheelchair-bound. Meanwhile, a laughing ghost in the house seems to be leaving clues to help solve the mystery. Kingsbury's crime-solving pair—youngish granddaughter and eccentric senior— are wonderfully appealing, whether they are ferreting out the town's secrets or dealing with the grief in their own lives. Fans of M. C. Beaton's Agatha Raisin series will find lots of similarities here. Copyright 2016 Booklist Reviews.
