Allison Kerby can communicate with ghosts, but her uncanny gift has its price: Allison frequently finds herself in the reluctant role of private investigator for specters seeking supernatural justice. When Allison’s late father - himself among her ghostly guests - suddenly disappears, Allison seeks clues to his whereabouts from her new client, a vindictive and vengeful visitor, his death shrouded in mystery. The ensuing intrigue threatens to make a ghost of Allison herself. Portraying the haunted heroine, actress Amanda Ronconi is animated and amiable, emphasizing Allison’s role as a caring, compassionate mother. Indeed, Allison is very much a family woman, even if her family is full of phantoms. Nevertheless, as Allison plunges into a plight of peril, Ronconi strikes an increasingly tremulous tone, rife with raw urgency.
Alison Kerby’s guesthouse is haunted all year round. Surviving the dead of winter, though? That’s a spooky proposition. Even with a blizzard bearing down on New Jersey, Alison can count on at least two guests—Paul and Maxie, the stubborn ghosts who share her shore town inn. Then there’s her widowed mother, who hasn’t just been seeing ghosts, she’s been secretly dating one: Alison’s father. But when he stands her up three times in a row, something’s wrong. Is he a lost soul…or a missing apparition? Their only lead is an overdramatic spirit—stage name Lawrence Laurentz—who doesn’t take direction well and won’t talk until they find his killer. Alison will reluctantly play the part of PI, but when the clues take a sinister turn, the writing is on the wall: If Alison can’t keep a level head, this will be her father’s final act—and maybe her own.

Yes, great as usual. She always has a way to bring out the humor of any storyline.
I have enjoyed this series quite a bit and this book did not disappoint. Alison is a fun character that is not a swooner but a (sometimes) tough chick. It does not require a huge commitment, it is a light easy mystery. I really do not mean that comment in any sort of derogatory way, sometimes you just want a book that is lighter.
I love when there are conversations going on that not everyone in the room is involved in. They are well written and fun to listen to.
What's dead got to do with it?

This was the best story yet, with a believable heroine that you want to triumph. She's funny and I can identify with her as well as her secondary characters. She has witty dialogue and deals with the paranormal in a very common sense un-new age way.
This is an entertaining and fun book. I recommend it to anyone who likes mystery and paranormal books.
