Ghosthunters has come to Blackwood Bay. Not really, but the fictional version of the reality show has taken up short term residence in the sleepy little coastal town, and it’s turning everything upside down.
Dru Rathmore just wants to watch the cleaning fairies zoom around her apartment and spend a little time with her hot Guardian, Harper. But with the cast of Supernatural Sleuths hanging around, chaos ensues. It starts with a missing person, who was only supposed to be “missing” in the figurative sense. Then Harper’s old girlfriend shows up, and while his original disdain for her is pretty intense, things go sideways and he’s practically vomit-inducing over her for the rest of the novel.
Dru, with the help of her spectral Granny, has more than one mystery to solve as a missing persons case turns into a homicide, more than one love story turns deranged, and the ghosts of Blackwood Bay get down tonight in one of the more lux hotels.
I actually really enjoyed Phantoms in High Fidelity by Misty Bane. This was a quick little mystery that kept you guessing, and I really enjoyed the mix of serial drama and and ghosts and humans co-existing in the lap of luxury. The author has taken to hinting at the plot of her next book in the series at the end of her current one, so I’ll be digging into that one as soon as I can.
Goodreads rating: 4 of 5 stars
Would I read it again? I think so!
