93) How to Blackmail a Ghost by Audrey Claire

The Blurb :

Liberty "Libby" Grace came to herself in her home, with no idea how she got there. She's a ghost, but Ian McClain--dare she call the vampire "friend"--has assured her somewhere her body is still alive. Libby must find out what happened to her. Solving the mystery surrounding the murder of the hardware store owner only brought Libby more questions.

While she's pretending to be a living person by going out on a date with the chief of police, someone murders the town busybody. Worse, someone in Summit's Edge wants to pin the murder on Libby. If Libby doesn't take the wrap, her secret will be revealed. Libby must find out who killed Sadie Barnett before everyone learns the truth. As if her troubles weren't enough, now Ian tells her she's running out of time. Wherever it is, her body is losing the fight for life. Now she stands to lose more than she ever thought possible as Death is on her heels.

My Thoughts :

The first book in this series was quite interesting and original and I was eager to read this second book because I wanted to know how the author would explain everything.  After reading this second book I am just as in the dark as Libby is and wonder how the author manages to talk her way out of this storyline she has started.

Where is Libby's body?  How can she still be 'alive' after all this time and why is she a ghost?  Are just a couple of unanswered questions.  In the meantime she is finding out she can make herself visible and work, take care of her kid, start a relationship and also solve murders.  How long this can go on is unsure but I find it hard to believe that her body has been kept somewhere all this time and that she is still able to go back to it.

If I wasn't so curious I would give up now but I need to know how this all works out.  There is a third book in the series and hopefully it is the last installment that answers all.  The mystery of Libby Grace has me intrigued but the small town of Summit's Edge and the murders are not really exciting me very much.
