    Middle-aged bookstore owner Willa Chance is looking forward to the opportunity of appraising a valuable private library that hasn't seen the light of day for 50 years...until she finds a dead body in the backyard and the ghost of the home's previous owner anxiously waiting for her inside.

    I wish Pepper was the lead.

    The good things; this series has so much potential. I love the concept of the little town in the New Hampshire mountains. I love the addition of the m..Show More »

    When the ghost of a murder victim appears in Last Chance Books, middle-aged bookstore owner, Willa Chance, must find the ghost's killer or risk being haunted with its unwanted advice forever. Too bad the ghost suffers from amnesia and only has a few scant clues as to the identity of the killer. That's okay, though, because Willa has a pretty good idea who did it...until her investigation turns up additional suspects with curious motives.

    This Is Where I Get Off

    I enjoyed the first two books, but, I think this will be the last one for me. The main problem I have with this book is Willa. For a sleuth, she is ..Show More »

    Three hundred years ago, accused witch Hester Warren buried a magical box in Mystic Notch. The secret contents within have the power to bring disaster to the town, and when the box is dug up at a groundbreaking ceremony for the new Mystic Notch Historical Museum, Hester's ghost and that of her cat make an appearance to warn the humans and enlist their help to ensure the box doesn't fall into the wrong hands. Too bad the only one listening is Pandora, the cat.

    Hiss

    It sounded cute. It sounded like a light, fun read. But nah. Even my cats left the room. The narrator does a decent New England accent though.

    Middle-aged bookstore owner Willa Chance is often haunted by ghosts who want her to do their bidding. Usually it involves the nasty business of bringing their killers to justice, so when the ghost of Adelaide Hamilton asks her to find an old recipe book and give it to Elspeth Whipple, it seems like an easy job. Except Willa's search for the book has her crossing the path of Sheriff Eddie Striker one too many times for comfort. He's acting almost as if he's investigating a murder, but Adelaide died of natural causes. Didn't she?

    Could have been much shorter!

    I am a fan of almost any cozy mystery but this one missed the mark. Willa Chance as portrayed in this one could be described as the definition of a co..Show More »
