103) Haunting Jordan by P.J. Alderman

The Blurb :

Jordan Marsh left L.A. for the quaint Pacific Northwest town of Port Chatham in pursuit of some much-needed R & R. As the prime suspect in her cheating husband’s murder, she had been hoping to immerse herself in the restoration of the charming Victorian she’d just bought—and put all talk of homicide investigations behind her. But as she soon discovers, the coldest of cases cry out to be solved, too.

For this old house comes fully furnished—with two garrulous ghosts who have a century-old murder of their own they’d like her to look into. Now, if Jordan can keep the L.A. police at bay, and sort through a suspect list of shady characters circa 1890, she might just clear a wrongly accused man’s name—and her own.

My Review :

I love a good cozy mystery and if there is something supernatural involved in the story then I can't resist trying it out. So when someone recommended this series to me I it wasn't long before I was pressing 'send to Kindle'. My 'To Be Read' pile may be about to fall over but it didn't stop me from visiting the delightful town of Port Chatham.

As the story unfolded I found myself unable to put the book down. I am not a big fan of historicals but the way the author told the story from the past and the present made reading this mystery even more exciting. I was kept guessing right till the end and loved all the little twists and even more I adored the ghosts!

Great characters and a super debut, I can't wait to read more. I actually already have book two in the series and I am sure it won't be long before I delve into it. I am so excited to see where things go in the sequel! It looks like I have another favourite and yet another must read sries to add to the huge list. A great ghostly cozy mystery! Well worth reading!

Have a great vacation Amber! I hope the weather over there is better than here in Holland at the moment. Enjoy all the sights, and perhaps the King Arthur trail?

Glad you liked the book, as it is already on my wishlist ...

Enjoy your vacation, Amber.

I read this one a couple of months ago. It was so good! Grittier than most amateur sleuths out there. I have book two on Mt Git'r'Read.
