|Summary, etc.:|| "Innkeeper Alison Kerby is determined to keep her mind, body, and soul focused on bringing high-spirited hospitality to her lodgers at the Haunted Guesthouse. She simply has no time for any more murder investigations, no matter what Paul Harrison, her resident ghost detective, says. But this time, the mystery comes looking for Alison. Workers unearth a 1977 Lincoln Continental buried in the sand behind Alison's guesthouse--and they discover a skeleton still belted in behind the steering wheel. Paul, of course, is on the cold case--to the extent that a ghostly gumshoe can be--but Alison is still determined not to do the incorporeal investigator's legwork. Not this time. But her new husband Josh is intrigued, and he offers to help Paul poke into the case of the cold Continental ... Alison dodges stray bullets, discovers a gun in the guesthouse, and reluctantly probes a decades-old murder that turns out to be shockingly relevant even today"-- Provided by publisher.

Innkeeper Alison Kerby, owner of the Haunted Guesthouse on the New Jersey coast, is stunned when she comes home to find an enormous hole in her backyard. Compounding the problem, the contractors doing the "minor" erosion control find a buried 1977 Lincoln Continental with a decades-old human skeleton in it. In addition to Alison and her familyâprecocious daughter Melissa and husband Joshâthe inn also houses a quartet of ghosts, including Paul, a private investigator in life, and Maxie, once an interior designer and internet whiz. At first adamantly refusing to be drawn into another investigation by Paul, Alison relents when it becomes apparent that Josh, who cannot see or hear the ghosts, and Melissa, who can, are working with Paul to identify the killer. Adding to the chaos, Alison is having a beam replaced in her kitchen, and Maxie, whose interior-design ideas are decidedly odd, demands to remodel the space when the work is completed. Alison's humorous first-person account, featuring remarkably easy-to-believe ghosts, will appeal to fans of Kate Kingsbury's Merry Ghost Inn mysteries. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
