SolvedNow Holly is doing whatever she can to pretend there s still a ghost at Holly Grove to keep the business coming in The last thing Holly needed however was the television crew to want to come back when a debunker makes the claim they faked the show but with a clause in her contract Holly can t do anything but invite them all back to film again and finds herself yet again trying to solve a murder when things get out of handDownright Dead was a great follow The Stephanides Pregnancy up to the first book in the series as far as bringing back the likable characters with a bit of humor mixed into a mystery I would say this one was rather slow going though in getting to the mystery side but the hauntedunhaunted BB story line was plenty to stay entertained withntil the murder came along I ll definitely be looking forward to spooky hijinks to come from the seriesI received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalleyFor reviews please visit It s been awhile since I read the first book but I The Tycoons Reluctant Cinderella uickly felt at home at Holly Grove BB with the awesome main characters of Holly Nelda Sam Miss Alice and Mackieand of course Jake When Holly s dead husband Burl entered the pearly gates Holly Grove s resident ghost was gone But the TV show that had filmed a segment about Burl s haunting that made the BB wildly popular returned to film some Holly panicked If that wasn t enough a ghost debunker named Tru Stalwort who regularly followedharrassed the show and its star Sylvia Martin showedp early He was just as obnoxious and nasty as Sylvia and Holly s friend Liz the producer had described him When he was found dead at foot of the widow s walk evidence pointed to Holly herself Another body turned The True King of Dahaar (A Dynasty of Sand and Scandal up later which really made Holly worry about the BB s reputation but at least no one could blame her for that death I loved how she and Jake sleuthed together Even Miss Alice and Nelda got in on the actionI liked the side story with Thomas Sinclair too I thought it was odd that Nelda and Miss Alice seemed to know who he was but wouldn t comment on why I can t really tell without spoiling this Let s just say this book was funny and cry worthy and at times I felt like punching Tru when he was still alive and debunking that is I never suspected the awesome twist towards the end that concerned Holly I had also not guessed the killer Even though everything was wrappedp well with a heart warming ending I m definitely ready for another book in the series It looks like Jake and Holly are back at a fairly good place His being an ICE agent isn t easy on their relationship if they even have one and I m hoping they can work things out in future books I highly recommend this book if you re cool with paranormal cozies It can easily stand alone but if you want to enjoy it to its fullest I would suggest reading the first book so you can get to know Burl better He was so funny in the first book and it s really worth reading it to have all that back storyI voluntarily read and reviewed an advance e copy of this book provided by NetGalley and the publisher Thanks to NetGalley Kensington Book for the opportunity to read an eBook ARC of this title That said I won t be reading any books in this series The first one was kinda cute with the almost ex husband being the ghost but this ghost wasn t cutemostly just incredibly annoying Add in the near constant you need a man schtick and this one was sometimes hard to get through Too many others awaiting my attention Downright Dead by Pamela Kopfler is one of the best paranormal cozy mysteries I have read Its style is similar to Angie Fox s paranormal 1920 s ghost solving mysteries There s plenty of humor action and suspects to explore Just like one of my other favorite sleuthing heroines the business owner in this novel is believed to be a suspect Her slipper was found where the dead man was pushed But the police still haven t decided if it is murder or a suicide yet However Holly sees the ghost of the newest victim He was her worst critic and now even in ghost form he doesn t want to believe But if he wants to stay away from hell they have to work together to solve his murder Plenty of interesting scenes and funny moments Overall I highly recommend this story and the rest of the series to readers everywhere I received this copy from the publisher This is my voluntary review. Rprisingly the debunker suddenly becomes a believer after he’s pushed off the Widow's Walk to his death and rises as a ghost Now his inuiring mind wants to know who murdered him When he asks for Holly’s help she can’t say no But this time it’s her turn to watch her step because if the killer gets spooked the next ghost haunting the BB may well be its owner.
