56) An Uninvited Ghost by E.J. Copperman

The Blurb - Alison and her resident gumshoe ghost are on their next case when the deceased Scott MacFarlane floats in worried that he accidentally killed a prominent local woman. Turns out she's still alive...that is, of course, until she's murdered-in Alison's house. Now, between the demands of her guests and the arrival of a reality television crew, Alison must find the killer before she sees reality from the other side.

My Thoughts -

An Uninvited Ghost is the second book in the Haunted Guesthouse series by E.J. Copperman. I was really impressed by the first book, Night of the Living Deed, so I had to pre-order this one and couldn't wait to read it. As most second books in the series it doesn't come up to par with the first book. However it was still an amazing read and it did confirm my hopes that this will be a new cool cozy mystery series.

I think the main attraction in this series is the ghost aspect. It is nice to have a little paranormal mixed up with some cozy mystery. I can't read the hardcore stuff all the time and it is nice to have a little break and read something with a little less blood and action. The nice setting and interesting characters make this an even better read. I love the concept and look forward to seeing where the author takes it next.

This time around the plot was a little complicated. There were way too many angles but in the end it all came together and I have to say there was a nice twist that I didn't see coming. The author certainly knows how to write a good mystery and I am eager for book three to come out. I have found another paranormal cozy to rave about.
