Dead and Breakfast: A Merry Ghost Inn Mystery

We rated this book:


After an ugly divorce, Melanie accepts her recently widowed grandmother’s offer to go into business together. Together they buy an old, supposedly haunted house to start up a bed and breakfast. While her grandma, Liza, enthusiastically embraces the idea of the laughing ghost—naming their B&B the Merry Ghost Inn—Melanie refuses to believe. But she definitely thinks something creepy is going on when Liza uncovers a real skeleton in a closet. The grand opening of the Merry Ghost Inn is put on indefinite hold while the police investigate. Since the small town force seems unwilling to make an old case a priority, the women decide to speed things up and take matters into their own hands. After all, reading mystery novels pretty well makes you an expert, right?

This book is a fun, quick read. There were a few areas where my inner editor wanted to come out—a couple of key conversations where Melanie and Liza seem to have switched positions by the end or side-plots that seem unnecessary. Overall, however, if you enjoy a cozy mystery with a tiny taste of the paranormal, and you don’t really want to analyze the storyline, this could be an engaging afternoon read.
