Publisher's Summary

When Bailey Ruth Raeburn passed over into the great beyond, she was delighted to discover her sleuthing days would last an eternity. Joining Heaven's Department of Good Intentions, she uses her unique advantages as a ghost - sometimes you see her, sometimes you don't - to help those in need and ensure the wicked get their just deserts.

However, on this latest mission, Bailey Ruth finds it more difficult than ever to keep up with her boss Wiggins' rules for good spirit deportment. Not only is the woman she is supposed to save determined to thwart Bailey Ruth's good intentions at every turn, she just so happens to be one of Bailey Ruth's oldest enemies. Not that that should matter to one of Heaven's best and brightest emissaries, but still, there is only so much a person can put up with - living or dead.

But solving Bailey Ruth's toughest case yet means managing a recalcitrant charge, a fraudulent medium, a mother's heartbreak, old passions and new, and a telltale rawhide dog bone. Heaven help her!

Cute Mystery

This is a really cute story. No, it isn't a great mystery but it is one that I would consider a "Cozy Mystery." That means you can curl up with it and just enjoy. I've read several of Carolyn Hart's books and this series is my favorite. Some people may find it hard to believe in a Ghost coming back to help on Earth. That's not the point. It is just a cute story. It doesn't have to be believable.

a step in the wrong direction?

I've listened to all the Bailey Ruth Raeburn mysteries in order and enjoyed them all as light reads and cosy mysteries. Ann Marie Lee is a delight to listen to. The main character has qualities that, in the smaller doses of the earlier books, were tolerable or even charming. In this one however, those qualities become irritating vanity, a judgmental temper and the bringing down of a system of rules and her boss for no apparent reason except that she can't be bothered and thinks it's all great fun. Enjoy the others in the series, but stop before you get to this one -- while there is still some hope Bailey Ruth will grow up.
