Publisher's Summary

Being dead can't put a damper on spirited, holiday-loving Bailey Ruth Raeburn.

Christmas is a time for family and giving, and a wealthy woman in Adelaide, Oklahoma, is about to embrace both. Discovering that she has a young grandson, the dowager decides to change her will to leave the bulk of her fortune to the young boy, an alteration that stuns the rest of her family. But a scrooge of a determined heir makes sure she never signs the new document. When she is found dead, it's up to that irrepressible spirit Bailey Ruth, on assignment from Wiggins and Heaven's Department of Good Intentions, to protect a little boy, foil a murderer, and save Christmas.

There's only one teeny hitch: how can Bailey Ruth figure out which family member was desperate enough to kill when everyone has a motive?
Boo-dunnit? Solve another ghostly mystery with Bailey Ruth.

Light-hearted romp

The second in the Bailey Ruth series, this is just as enjoyable as the first, Ghost At Work. The kind of story that lets you just enjoy and not tear at the emotions or depress. While the "ghost" part may be unbelieveable, it is relaxing to shut out the world and lose yourself in a delightful romp.

Not so Merry

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I couldn't get past Ann Marie Lee's monotone voice. Her expression never changes. Dull.

Has Merry, Merry Ghost turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Another great story!

Although a bit slow to start, this turned out to be s really good listen. Well developed characters, great narration. I enjoyed the "Lucy"- like qualities of Bailey Ruth. This made the story even more enjoyable.

Such Fun!

I love this series. They are innovative, and I usually can't figure out who did it until the end. Thank you to an excellent author and narrator!
