There’s never a good time for a ghost crisis.

However, it's particularly inconvenient while I'm trying to tackle my first wedding season. Between twelve hour days, an assistant with a case of butter fingers (not the chocolate kind), and the flood of tourists in town, I’m struggling to keep a grip on my sanity.

All I want is three months of peace from the spirit world.

But when local ghosts start going missing, I have to do something.

After all, it’s not like they go to the Hamptons.

Missing ghosts, a posthumously alimony-hungry divorcee, and a raging bridezilla. Yup, my bingo card is officially full. Can I get a prize and go home now?

MURDERMYSTERY paranormal ROMANCE Small-town

In Ghosts Gone Wild by Danielle Garrett, Scarlett has her hands full with a booming floral business, ghostly squabbles and not one but two mysteries.

This is the second audio in the Beechwood Harbor Ghost Mystery series and I am loving everything this cozy, paranormal mystery series has to offer.

Wedding season is in full swing. Unfortunately her first wedding comes with Kimberly, the bride from hell. First time I’ve read a book with a character bearing my name and she’s a bitch. Why? Lucas, the love interest from book one, a security specialist, is coming for a visit and Scarlett’s ghostly companion, a Victorian era gentlemen is all sixes and sevens because local gossip diva and fellow ghost Gwen, has a new love interest. It’s enough to make a certain young florist pull her hair out…but as we know with Garrett things are going to get worse before they get better.

Kimberly ends up murdered, and a client’s dead wife is haunting Scarlett. If she wants any peace she will need to help them crossover.

I enjoyed the murder-mystery thread and liked that Lucas could assist. The ghosts surrounding Scarlett add to the story and bring both humor and suspense. Flapjack, her ghostly cat companion is snarky. I can picture him rolling his eyes in disgust as events unfold.

As if things aren’t crazy enough, ghosts within the community begin to go missing including Gwen’s new bo. This was a great thread and took a dark turn. It also pushed Scarlett to open a book given to her. I am exciting to see where this takes the series.

Humor, mystery, friendship and a touch of romance made this an enjoyable listen. Amanda Ronconi narrates and does a splendid job with character voices and pacing as she captures the tone of the tale.

    I too really enjoyed this one. I love the bonds forming between Scarlet, her ghostly friends, and Lucas. I like that he’s not running away from her “crazy.” And the ending – I look forward to finding out what it all means!

    Ha! It is slightly offensive when a character with your name isn’t very nice. This series looks like a lot of fun. The cover alone would make me want to pick it up. It’s nice to know you enjoyed it!

    Great review

    I really enjoyed this one also. Wonderful review! Sometimes it feels like the progress and revelations for Scarlet always happen at the very end, sort of like a reflection after the mystery / drama has ended.

    LOL about the “bride from hell” having your name! I like that the ghosts add to the murder mystery by helping to solve it and bring humor and suspense. Flapjack sure does sound like a fun character!
