Available now: A WILD GHOST CHASE–A Haunted Guesthouse eSpecial!
Paul Harrison is a dedicated investigator. He’s also dead. So being in the haunted guesthouse on the Jersey Shore has been something of a trial for him, especially since he longs for a case to engage his mind. When Alison Kerby tells him she can’t take on any more investigations, Paul chooses not to inform her he’s agreed to one: He’s going to try and find the mother of a nine-year-old ghost who calls himself Eagle of the Sun. The problem: Both ghosts have been dead for more than 200 years, and Eagle of the Sun seems to be holding some information back…

An Uninvited Ghost
The second Haunted Guesthouse mystery, An Uninvited Ghost, brings back all your favorite characters and continues the story of Alison Kerby, who discovered two spirits “living” in the Jersey Shore house she was renovating to serve as a guesthouse. Months after the incidents in Night of the Living Deed, Alison’s house is now receiving its first set of guests, and she is just a little nervous about pleasing them. But there’s something else on the agenda—Paul Harrison, the murdered private investigator who shares the house with Alison, her now ten-year-old daughter Melissa, and the ghost of Maxie Malone, has been drumming up business—detective business. The client is another ghost, Scott McFarlane, who thinks he might have been tricked into killing a little old lady and is distraught over the incident. He wants Alison and Paul to find out what really happened—but that could lead to the real killer getting wind of the investigation. And Alison’s not interested in aggravating another murderer. And with a reality TV crew about to invade the guesthouse for a shoot, things are going to get very hectic, very fast. Read an excerpt!
Night of the Living Deed
“Funny, charming, and thoroughly enjoyable. I look forward to the next installment.”
—Gloria Feit, I Love a Mystery
“Fans of Charlaine Harris and Sarah Graves will relish this original, laugh-laden paranormal mystery featuring reluctant ghost whisperer Alison Kerby, a Topper for the 21st century. Meticulously crafted, Night of the Living Deed is a sparkling first entry in a promising new series.”
—Julia Spencer-Fleming, Anthony and Agatha Award winning author of One Was A Soldier
