Hadley Hunter has lived a normal life, in a normal suburb, with a normal job and a normal father. All that changes when a grandmother she didn’t even know existed dies and leaves her a fabulous lighthouse on Moonstone Bay Island. From the naked woman swimming in the ocean outside her back door to the hot sheriff who seems to be hiding a secret, Hadley is intrigued from the start. That’s before magical things start happening - including to Hadley - and a body washes up on the beach.

If you're into the normalization of cops sexually harassing the citizens they're supposed to be protecting, this is the book for you! What the author seems to consider "romance" is ruining what would otherwise be a great story. (Well, except that I also easily figured out who did it and their motive by, like, page 2!)

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.

I had the motive figured out from the start. Then, it was pretty easy to deduce the killer later on. I don't like my mysteries that easy to solve. Especially when the protagonist is so stupid it's cringeworthy.

Marnie is planning the Winchester family's annual solstice celebration - and it's a lot of work - but the real work comes when niece Bay sees a ghost and Aunt Tillie declares war on her meddlesome great-nieces. Marnie has to find a way to keep the solstice celebration on track - and no one is up to the task of helping. The curses are flying fast and furious, and Marnie is running out of time to help a forgetful ghost move on, find her missing magic supplies and prove she should've been the boss all along.

The story was great, but I really didn't like the narrator's voices. I don't think real people talk like that!

The first time violinist Julia Ansdell picked up the "Incendio Waltz" in a darkened antique shop in Rome, she knew it was a strikingly unusual composition. The minor key and complex feverish arpeggios have a life of their own. But when she plays the piece, Julia blacks out and awakens to find her small daughter implicated in acts of surprising violence. When she travels to Venice to find the previous owner of the music, she uncovers a heart-stoppingly dark secret....

I couldn't go past the 2nd chapter. This story includes horrific animal cruelty. Trying to figure out how I can permanently erase it from my account!
