Review – Gone with the Ghost by Erin McCarthy

Displaying Gone With the Ghost final.jpg
Synopsis:
Bailey Burke has had a rough six months—it’s not easy thinking your romantic overtures toward your best friend caused him to kill himself. Except that’s exactly what happened. Ryan is very much dead, having shot himself with his own police-issued gun. Guilt and grief shouldn’t cause hallucinations though, but six months after Ryan went into the ground, Bailey is freaking out and swearing his ghost is standing in her kitchen. Which he is…

Ryan claims he didn’t commit suicide, but was murdered, and he needs Bailey to help him find his killer so he can earn his ticket out of purgatory. Ryan’s counting on a stairway to heaven, as opposed to wings, since that might be a little unmanly for a cop, even a dead one.

An expert in home design, with her own staging business, Bailey can tell you where to place a couch to improve flow and comfort, but solving a crime? Not her area of expertise. But with help from Ryan’s former partner, Marner, she is unraveling the mystery of what happened to Ryan that day… and unwittingly putting herself in grave danger.
 
 
My Review:
4 out of 5 stars
★★★★☆
 
This was my first book by this author and I really enjoyed it. The paranormal aspect of this book was done really well. The mystery behind the murder kept the pages turning and held my attention. Just when I thought I had everything figured out, something would happen and I would start to suspect someone else. The reveal of the killer took me by surprise since it was someone I hadn’t suspected at all.

Bailey was really funny and I liked her character. I liked Ryan and Jake as well. There were a couple things that didn’t really make sense to me and had me a little confused, but other than that, I enjoyed the book. I’m looking forward to reading future books in this series.  The ending of this book is set up perfectly to lead you into the next one and I’m interested to see what is going to happen next with these characters.
