RITA-nominated author P. J. Alderman weaves present-day supernatural sleuthery with nineteenth-century intrigue in the first book of an enchanting new mystery series set in picturesque Port Chatham, Washington.

Jordan Marsh left L.A. for the quaint Pacific Northwest town of Port Chatham in pursuit of some much-needed R & R. As the prime suspect in her cheating husband's murder, she had been hoping to immerse herself in the restoration of the charming Victorian she'd just bought--and put all talk of homicide investigations behind her. But as she soon discovers, the coldest of cases cry out to be solved, too.

For this old house comes fully furnished--with two garrulous ghosts who have a century-old murder of their own they'd like her to look into. Now, if Jordan can keep the L.A. police at bay, and sort through a suspect list of shady characters circa 1890, she might just clear a wrongly accused man's name--and her own.

LIght reading with a good story. Thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to the sequel being equally as light, funny and interesting.

A light paranormal romance where neither love interest is paranormal. Jordan moves to a new town where she helps two ghostly sisters solve a murder mystery. Enjoyable.

I didn't finish this, too confusing. 2 mysteries overlapping, one past & one present.

Oh my God. What a badly written and edited.....(or not edited) book. Not recommended!!

Perfect book for curling up on the couch with a cup of tea. A blend of romance/whodunnit/ghost story with a wonderful historical sense. I hope this is just the first in a long line of books.

Jordan decides to move to a small town to escape her notoriety. When she invests in a heritage home, she is surprised by two very strong personalities – the ghosts of the two women who lived in her house over a century before. And they want her to find their murderer. What Jordan doesn’t count on are the friendly townspeople – some living and some not. This quirky first in the series novel sets a new standard for cozy mysteries.
