Bailey Ruth loves to return to earth as an emissary from Heaven's Department of Good Intentions. Problem is, she's a bit of a loose cannon as far as ghosts go - forgetting to remain invisible, alarming earthly creatures - so she's far from the top of department head Wiggins's go-to list for assignments.
That's why she's surprised when the Heaven-sent Rescue Express drops her off at a frame house on the outskirts of her old hometown, Adelaide, Oklahoma, where a young man is playing the drums. When a window cracks and a rifle barrel is thrust inside, only Bailey Ruth's hasty intervention saves Nick Magruder from taking a bullet. When she materializes to reassure him, she finds she can't go back to vanishing. What gives?

I loved it, the characters were clear and the story was interesting. I especially loved the interaction with the police chief.
Carolyn Hart continues to entertain with her wonderful Bailey Ruth series. With wit and her willingness to skirt the rules she carries on no matter the obstacles . Ann Marie Lee is a joy to listen to. She manages to carry off the change in voices believable.
Dearly departed Bailey Ruth is back in Adelaide, her hometown, for another emissary assignment - but the details aren't quite clear. Normally Wiggins, the head of the Department of Good Intentions, gives Bailey Ruth detailed instructions but this time, she didn't even see Wiggins before her departure. She soon learns who she is there to protect and as usual, Bailey Ruth isn't very adept at keeping the precepts, especially the one on not appearing unless it is absolutely necessary. So when Bailey Ruth tries to disappear and finds she can't, she knows that she is stuck on earth and Wiggins has no idea she is there.
No, while the earlier book were "light & rather cute." this one was just tediouwl
No! I can't imagine this as a movie. The story world not hold my attention.
I wasn't sure where this series was going to go, but I did not expect a "rogue" emissary. Better that the rogue stayed away. This is the last of this series I will bother with.
