Ghost at Work: Bailey Ruth Mysteries #1 | [Carolyn Hart]

Ghost at Work: Bailey Ruth Mysteries #1

Bailey Ruth Raeburn has always been great at solving mysteries. Why should a little thing like her death change anything? In fact, being dead gives her more of an opportunity to be on top of events. Bailey Ruth is delighted that her unique position as a ghost makes it possible for her to lend a helping hand, sometimes seen and sometimes not. And if anybody needs a little help, it's Kathleen, the pastor's wife. There's a dead man on her porch, and once the body is discovered, the pastor is sure to become a suspect.

Publisher's Summary

Bailey Ruth Raeburn has always been great at solving mysteries. Why should a little thing like her death change anything? In fact, being dead gives her more of an opportunity to be on top of events. Bailey Ruth is delighted that her unique position as a ghost makes it possible for her to lend a helping hand, sometimes seen and sometimes not. And if anybody needs a little help, it's Kathleen, the pastor's wife. There's a dead man on her porch, and once the body is discovered, the pastor is sure to become a suspect.

Uncharitable people might call it meddling, but Bailey Ruth knows Kathleen needs her help! As a member of Heaven's Department of Good Intentions, Bailey Ruth goes back to earth to extricate Kathleen from a dire situation. If Bailey Ruth has to bend a few rules to help Kathleen save her family, Wiggins, her fussbudget supervisor, will make sure it all turns out right in the end.

    "I'm so glad I read it"

    This was a week of sales of first books so I thought I'd try a few new series. I'm so glad I chose this one. Once long ago I read Hart's Death on Demand books. After a couple of years I got tired of them and very nearly passed this book up because of that. This book just made me feel happy. Granted I was completely wrong about whodunit, carrying my hope for the murderer almost to the end, but that's nothing new. This just felt very satisfying. True, it's a cozy, but to me that's a good thing. I often need a cheering book and this fit the bill. I can't wait to read the next two, then I'll have a new series to add to my books to look forward to.

    "A great new character!"

    I love Carolyn Hart books but hesitated reading a book with a ghost as the main character. Thought it would be just a little too strange. What a pleasant surprise I had. The character is funny and the concept of a ghost not too far out to be pleasurable. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to Bailey Ruth's next adventure.

    "The most stylish ghost you ever met."
    What made the experience of listening to Ghost at Work the most enjoyable?

    This is a fun read - enjoyed it. I listen to a lot of my recorded books while I'm walking - so I don't want anything too heavy or depressing.


    What other book might you compare Ghost at Work to and why?

    This is a fun "light" mystery - such as you find in the "Dog On It" stories of Chet and Bernie.


    Which character – as performed by Ann Marie Lee – was your favorite?

    The best character in the book is the main one - Bailey Ruth (the ghost who is not a ghost!). She is fun loving and very much into fashion.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Don't think this would translate to the screen.


    Any additional comments?

    An easy fun listen.
