Five bodies in a well.
One of them is the brother of a police detective.
That man’s ghost is Charley’s new best friend.
Amanda is thrilled that Charley can see him. Perhaps this means her
ex-husband’s ghost is on his way to the light, to a higher plane, to
Oklahoma, to anywhere so long as it’s away from her. Perhaps the new guy
can direct him to the light.
But the new ghost isn’t leaving. He has an agenda, and it’s not
finding his killer. Amanda, Charley, Jake, the medium Teresa, and the
ghost’s brother Ross must hunt down his killer before one of them is
Charley’s not worried, but the others don’t have his immunity to death.
Sally Berneathy is one of my all-time favorite authors. I've been waiting not so patiently for this book and, once I got a copy, I sat down and read it in one day. I couldn't put it down. Sally's work is just fantastic. I love that she can bring you to the edge of tears with a scene, but quickly lighten the mood with humor.
What I love most though is that I can usually guess the ending of a cozy mystery long before it's over, but this book kept me guessing until right before the big moment.
I love the path that the author took with this book. Berneathy's work is like a great combination of Criminal Minds and a romantic comedy. Enough darkness to keep the mystery interesting, but enough humor and romance to keep things from being too dark.
I can't wait for the next one.
