Publisher's Summary

A haunted inn...a ghostly séance...and a tearoom full of scrumptious delicacies!
Jessie Delacroix leaves the hustle and hassle of a new career as an assistant investigator for a law firm in Savannah to return to her roots in the small tourist town of Whispering Pines. The 25-year-old dynamo is not prepared for the ghosts who await her there in the haunted bed-and-breakfast and tearoom that she inherited and now must operate.
Not only does she find the spirits of those she loved long ago, but a sinister murder occurs just one day after her arrival. Is this a sign of malicious spirits...or foul play of another sort? The police are stumped, so it's up to Jessie and her little beagle, Arthur, to uncover the surprising answer - with a little help from her supernatural granny and a mystical pawnbroker.
Join Jessie, Arthur, Carlo (the short-tempered but lovable chef), Sheriff Muldoon, and a host of other characters as they explore the dark secrets of the haunted inn and the ghostly town of Whispering Pines. You'll find fun, humor, and an intriguing and detailed mystery, with all the clues meticulously laid out but hidden in plain sight. Only the best sleuths, like Jessie Delacroix, can pick them up. Can you solve the murder and predict the final twist?
This is the first book in a new paranormal murder-mystery series. Each book will lay out a well-crafted mystery to test your powers of perception as it slowly answers the bigger question: What is the secret of Whispering Pines? The series not only includes otherworldly spirits and psychic abilities, but it will also bring you visions of mouthwatering finger sandwiches, incredible canapés, and crab cakes that might just change your life!

Annoying delivery

The story was okay, not great. I'm sorry to say that the reader had an annoying voice. My impression was that reader was trying too hard to get into character and her voice screeched. I am not a fan of ghost stories, and this was definitely a story about ghosts (or spirits). That probably affected my review. Perhaps a woman in her 20's would have enjoyed.

Adequate paranormal mystery; marginal narration

Disclosure: free copy received in exchange for review.

Story rating 3.5; not 4 (could not give 1/2-star rating)

Although not my first paranormal mystery, this was not as tightly plotted as I prefer, with some twists telegraphed early (although the biggest twist was nearly concealed until an appropriate time). It filled a four-hour drive adequately, although I may not actively seek out any subsequent installments.

As for the narrator, I found it difficult to distinguish several sets of character voices from each other. In addition, more than one female character was voiced artificially high and squeaky.
