Publisher's Summary

When the local mailman inherits a haunted house and demands an exorcism, Pen must act fast to save her favorite ghost in this Haunted Bookshop mystery from New York Times best-selling author Cleo Coyle.

Bookshop owner Penelope Thornton-McClure didn't believe in ghosts - until she met the spirit of hard-boiled 1940s detective Jack Shepard. And when Pen's friend and mailman, Seymour Tarnish, gets into deep trouble, Pen not only believes in her ghost - she also thinks he can help....

An elderly lady of leisure has been found dead on posh Larchmont Avenue, her will recently, and suspiciously, revised to name Seymour as heir to her mansion. Just as eyes turn to him as the murderer - and Seymour gets busy settling into his ritzy digs - the mansion's ghosts begin plaguing him. So he hires a team of parapsychologists to exorcise all the spirits from the town of Quindicott - and that includes Jack Shepard. Now Pen must act fast - because losing Jack scares Pen more than rattling chains and cold spots....

Very Entertaining

This series has become one of my favorites. I enjoy the relationship between Penelope and Jack. The supporting characters aren't too quirky. The story is fast paced with a little humor and light romance. Each book in this series is well developed with engaging characters. I look forward to the next book.

Haunted To Death

A fun cozy ghost story. A modern woman, her sidekick the ghost of a private detective killed in 1949, and the inheritance of a haunted mansion have all the ingredients to entertain you till the very last word.

The best so far

I enjoy these light easy stories, they are full of great characters and I enjoy the narrator. I never guess the ending and I like the way the flashbacks are relevant to the story. some people complain that the stories wrap up neat and tidy but I prefer that to a cliff hanger for the next book

It took a bit to get into it because I had not read any earlier books in the series, but then I really enjoyed this tale. Jack was a private eye who died in 1949 NYC but is now a ghost who solves murder problems with bookseller Pen McClure in a small town in Rhode Island. This case involves a favorite customer and the local letter carrier as well as an inheritance and some unfriendly ghosts. Well done whodunit complete with humor.
The audio is exceptionally well done by Caroline Shaffer and Traber Burns

performance ok

the narration wasnt really at fault for this one, the story was just silly & the word choices were odd. someone needs to take away the authors thesaurus. thankfully, it was free with Audible, so it was my time wasted & not money.

The Ghost and the Haunted Mansion

The narration in this series is very, very good; excellent in this 6th book. I have never rated any audio book 5 stars across the board but this one deserves all of them. Cozy mystery series with enough complications to keep it interesting to the end, and Caroline Shaffer puts the correct inflections in all the dialogues throughout. I highly recommend this series to those who enjoy the genre.

The Tale of the Twisted Mansion

A very descriptive twisted mystery that involved an intricate web of deceit and greed. The dynamic duo of Caroline Shaffer and Traber Burns nailed the narrative giving the story life and depth.

Great series

I am enjoying the series but there’s a little bit of repetition in all the books so I think in case somebody just reads one for the first time I understand
