Publisher's Summary

With her social life and writing career in tatters at the ripe old age of 35, Sunni Taylor decides to pack up her things and join her sisters, Lana and Emily, in the small town of Firefly Junction. Hoping to open a bed-and-breakfast, Sunni sets herself the task of refurbishing the rundown Cider Ridge Inn, a 200-year-old house with a sordid past. 

In the meantime, she's stuck writing dull human interest stories for the Junction Times. But when Sunni decides to bend the rules on her first newspaper assignment, she soon finds herself in her favorite place - right in the center of a murder investigation. Now if she can just steer clear of the cocky, irritating, and far too appealing local detective, Brady "Jax" Jackson.

It isn't long before Sunni discovers that avoiding Jax is a piece of cake compared to staying clear of the equally cocky, irritating, and far too appealing 200-year-old ghost haunting the halls of the Cider Ridge Inn.

Boring

Death in the Park is boring and formulaic. All of the characters are attractive, smart and perfect. They live in a perfect town, except for the unfortunate marder. Then, the author introduces a ghost into the story. Why??? I couldn't bring myself to care about what happened in the story. The narrator did a good job but couldn't save this book. I returned it.

Fun paranormal cozy

I loved listening to these characters come to life and I can’t wait to hear more. Sunni and her sisters are fun together and can’t forget Raine and her abilities—and best of all the cider ridge ghost. The narrator did a wonderful job.

Oh and can’t forget the handsome detective Jackson!

A Series I really enjoy, but...

I have enjoyed this series (along with other books from this author). They are simple, enjoyable, quick reads. I think the characters and their banter are fun. But, I understand that not everyone will enjoy them. If you're looking for a dark, serious story, this is not it. I have to admit this first book didn't come across well in the audiobook version. I felt the reading made the main character sound whiny and immature, where she's supposed to be snarky and sarcastic. I enjoyed the books, so I'm hoping the next audiobook will translate better.

meh..

There isn't any special about this book. The characters and plot are lackluster and flat. I didn't finish it. I'm not going to get the next one.
