    Merry is making a fresh start in small-town Autumn Vale, New York, in the mansion she's inherited from her late uncle, Melvin. The house is run-down, and someone has been digging giant holes on the grounds, but with its restaurant-quality kitchen, the place has potential for her new baking business. She even has her first client - the local retirement home. Unfortunately, Merry soon finds that quite a few townsfolk didn't like Uncle Mel, and she has inherited their enmity as well as his home.

    Good story but did not like the narrator!

    I will have to read part two as the narrator was to much for me. Sounds like a machine reading. Finally had to speed up the pace just to finish. Li..Show More »

    They say that one's home is one's castle, but when it comes to Wynter Castle, Merry would like it to belong to someone else. But until a buyer bites, she could use some extra dough, so she decides to take in renters. The idea pans out, and Merry's able to find a handful of tenants eager to live in a real castle. The only problem is that most of them are crumby, tea-swilling old biddies.

    Long and Drawn out

    This was a long and drawn out book. It was a bit dry and I hate to say it, but, boring. To make matters worse, the narrator over enunciates words an..Show More »

But Roma and Minnie's heated rivalry goes cold after Merry discovers Minnie dead at the post office.

    Average

    This is an okay book. There is something about the lead character that rubs me the wrong way. She's to needy and eager to get involved in everything..Show More »

    While Merry is distracted by her quickly planned marriage to Virgil Grace and a blissful honeymoon in New York, her friend Pish invites the ghost-hunting crew from the TV show Haunt Hunt to investigate Merry's home, Wynter Castle. Merry soon discovers that not only is the crew out of sync, there are so many feuds and squabbles, it's a miracle they get a show produced at all. It all goes from bad to worse when the show's psychics claim to have contact with people murdered on Merry's property.

    Disappointed

    Too many characters. Too confusing!
