Ghost Mortem : Book #1 (The Ghost Detective Series) : Jane Hinchey.
Hell Have no Fury like an 'Old Crazy Pants' scorned.
Butt word of warning; stay on the good side of the elderly neighbours, hold your breathe and keep those cheeks clenched for dear-life cos that ending sure is a stinker. Literally!
After just completing an epic read of all proportions, one full of non-stop action, heavy in characters & circumstance, I needed something easy, but fun to read. Something lower in carbs & calories, light 'n' tasty, with flair 'n' fun, something invigorating,
rejuvenating and uplifting whilst still being entertaining and refreshing at the same time.
That's when I always reach for My Go-To Author, Queen of Cozy's, Adelaide's very own author Extraordinaire, Ms Jane Hinchey and I'm lucky to have her latest, almost released book (April 30th 2020) in the light-hearted Rom-Com 'Ghost Mortem,' for a refreshing change of pace and palate cleanse.
Ghost Mortem is book #1 in a new light-hearted uplifting paranormal cozy mystery series with a bunch of adorable characters, a dash of magic, a pinch of witchcraft & rituals, with tonnes of the most deliciously hilarious laugh out loud moments that will have you rolling on the floor holding your stomach (in more ways than one😉), but word to the wise,
you may just want to keep a can of Glen-20 or Lysol on hand & don't forget to pinch your nose from the stench.
Audrey Fitzgerald is a 29 y.o. professional temp, who's great with figures and a spreadsheet. She's sharp as a tack & nothing much gets past her (unless its her own ass over head), she's the sweet as pie gal next-door type, with one big drawback, Audrey is as clumsy as an ox, if there's a way to trip over it, spill it or embarrass the hell out of herself and others, this adorable klutz will find it, but its not just Audrey that pays the price for her hilarious antics, for with friends like 'Fitz' who needs enemies right? No, but seriously you may just want to take out life and health insurance!
After coming into an inheritance, Audrey's whole life changes, there's new cases to go with a new business, a new car, a new home along with customary nosy neighbour who never misses a beat, a new ghost with amnesia, the not so new moronic cops with a grudge, plus the sexy new cop in town (she'd like to cop a feel of) and of course there's Thor,
a pompous British hairy a@#hole of a cat with attitude, one whose been plotting her demise since they first met.
Falling over and into every crazy in the town of Firefly Bay and inheriting a caseload of crazy, just how long can Audrey stay sane or will the crazy's of Firefly Bay infect Fitz before she too succumbs to a case of the crazies or the crazy themselves?
Well one things for sure your in for a caseload of crazy!
Brilliantly written & edited as usual.
A traditional hallmark & calling card in Jane Hinchey's bag of tricks.
I RATE GHOST MORTEM 4.5⭐ OUT OF 5⭐
A cleverly delicious way to start of a new series & can not wait to read book#2 so we get a deeper dive into the residents of Firefly Bay and her new Private Investigator in training.
I received an ARC of Ghost Mortem from the author & this is my fair, honest, impartial review as always.
