Professor Pickett in the cafe’ with the Mardi Gras beads?
New Orleans ghost tour gift shop manager, Paige Harrington makes a wish for her twenty-fifth birthday: to find the one thing she can be as passionate about as her cancer researcher parents.
She doesn’t, however, expect her calling to come in the form of a mysterious app on her phone that matches her up with the ghost of a cute bartender who wants her to solve his murder. Nor for her pet hedgehog, Auguste, to start talking to her with a French accent.
When her favorite professor turned cafe’ owner, Liz Pickett is framed for the murder, Paige can’t sit by and let all of this happen. Even if uncovering the truth means tangling with the Enclave, a secret society with the power and connections to make someone like her asking too many questions disappear without a trace.
With the Enclave and their dark secrets dogging at her heels, Paige will have to step up her sleuthing skills and unmask the real killer before she ends up their next victim.
I don’t need a fortune teller to predict this series will be a hit. Once Ghosted, Twice Shy is a witty and fun paranormal cozy mystery with of wide assortment of psychic sidekicks to guide protagonist Paige Harrington on the road to sleuthing. She’s the great granddaughter of famous mystery writer Magnolia Castile, who penned the Matilda Mayhew series in the 1940’s and 1950’s. Paige has read the well loved books so many times she automatically reaches for one whenever she needs solace. She definitely needs consoling after the dead body of a man she knew falls from the roof of the ghost tours gift shop she manages. When a ghost app appears on her phone, matching her with the spirit of the dead man, she takes on her first case to find his murderer. Maybe, like her great grandmother, solving mysteries is in her blood.
Once Ghosted, Twice Shy is a highly entertaining cozy for lovers of quirky, light paranormal stories.
