Publisher's Summary

Melanie West is getting her life back on track after a messy divorce when her grandmother, Liza Harris, asks her to join her in opening a bed-and-breakfast inn. Together, Liza and Melanie purchase a purportedly haunted mansion on the Oregon coast and jump right into clearing out the cobwebs. But while attempting to remove wallpaper in an upstairs bedroom, the new B&B owners stumble upon a very real skeleton in their closet. The police suspect the skeleton is that of the wife of the previous owner of the B&B, but no one in town seems to want to say much about her.

As the inn owners try to juggle renovations with their own amateur investigations, their grand opening looms closer and closer - and a friendly ghost in their walls starts playing tricks. But it all comes crashing to a halt when a new body is found stabbed to death on the beach below the inn - the victim chillingly close in resemblance to Melanie herself. It seems someone doesn't appreciate newcomers prying into the small town's past, and now it's up to Melanie and Liza to get to the bottom of these murders to save their business - and their lives.

    "Typical Cozy Mystery"

    This is a rather formulaic and typical cozy mystery. I thought Melanie was a bit over the top with her suspicions. I might give the next book a chance but I'm not sure.

    "Nice cozy mystery"

    Kate Kingsbury has written a nice new cozy mystery. The story is original. Tavia Gilbert, as always did a fine job of bringing the characters to life. I'm looking forward to the next in the series.

    Story
    "Lame Impossible plot"

    Modern police departments will not insist on making business impossible for a case 50 years old. Even when the house is released, the police insisted on leaving a room closed. A skeleton was found and the cold case was over 40 years old. Seriously what sort of evidence were they preserving? A fresh scene would have been processed in 56 hours tops. That is the underpinning of the plot and it's not credible.
