As a member of Heaven's Department of Good Intentions, Bailey Ruth goes back to earth to extricate Kathleen from a dire situation.

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.
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.
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.
This is a fun "light" mystery - such as you find in the "Dog On It" stories of Chet and Bernie.
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.
Don't think this would translate to the screen.
An easy fun listen.
As an artist busy with my hands and eyes I had to give up reading. Then audio books came into my life and I am back to over 200 books a yr.
I think so.
The narrator did a good job on the accents, voices and emotions. But it was way to slow for me and almost gave up on the book. So I put it on my Kindle and raised the speed to 1.25 and then I could continue. There was a lot of loud sucking breathing in before much of the dialog.
When Whiggens finally decided to help.
I almost didn't buy this book because I didn't care for Carolyn Hart's Death on Demand books I read (way too many notations of way too many books). But I enjoyed this story line. I do think the title is misleading calling it a ghost not an angel. The ending was very good and made the time I spent reading the whole book worthwhile.
Old, tired member of the sandwich generation. Waiting to just get to heaven!!
I feel like I have met a new friend in Baily Ruth. I loved this book. It was nicely intertwined, full of mystery and Baily Ruth found some family members. Another go to series for me. It is just a comfy mystery. This series is worth the credits! I don't think you will be disappointed.
The performance exceeded my expectations! The story was a little slow, the characters needed a little more depth. But overall I truly enjoyed the performance and the end was a surprise.
I really enjoyed this book. It was s fun, easy listen. The narrator was great. She did other voices nicely, and kept my attention. Great storyline. Loved the main characters. Off to listen to book two in the series!
I am a long time reader of Carolyn Hart and this new character and series does not disappoint! Can't wait to read/hear more!
This series was just so much fun to listen to. Family friendly as well. I loved the character's antics.
