The Ex Who Wouldn't Die (Charley's Ghost) by Sally Berneathy Review

Title: The Ex Who Wouldn't Die
Series: Charley's Ghost, Book 1
Author: Sally Berneathy
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Pages: 277
Price: $2.99
Thoughts: Another awesome series!

Book Synopsis:

When Amanda's lying, cheating, scam-artist husband, Charley, saves her life in a near-fatal motorcycle accident, she can almost forgive him for dragging his feet on their divorce. Then she discovers he'd been dead for several hours at the time she thought he rescued her. And not just dead…murdered.

On the good side, at least they are no longer married.

But she's the primary suspect in Charley's murder and, as if that isn't bad enough, Charley's ghost shows up in her apartment. He was rejected, kicked back, not allowed to go into the light. The situation was bad enough when he was alive and trying to charm his way back into her life, but now he claims to be unable to go more than a few yards away from her. She can't even be certain he isn't peeking when she undresses for bed.

Even death did not them part.

As Amanda puts her life in danger in an effort to bring Charley's murderer to justice and send him into the light or the dark or anywhere away from her, she learns her knowledge of Charley's misdeeds is only the tip of a toxic iceberg. Charley blackmailed his murderer, blackmailed Amanda's father, lied about his family being dead when he is actually related to half the town of Silver Creek, Texas, and, with his treachery, has stirred up secrets that will change Amanda's life.


At first I wasn't sure I was going to like this series as well as the Death by Chocolate Series Sally Berneathy has so expertly crafted. However, I fell in love with these characters, too. By the end of the book, I was in love with the series and can't wait to read the next one. Amanda and Charley are a great combo and the in-laws Amanda discovers after her husband's death are so loveable you want to crawl into the book and live with them. If you love cozy mysteries, I highly, highly recommend this series!

  1. Sounds like a good series - I haven't read a good ghost book in a while so I'll check this one out. Thanks for the review!
