Paranormal museum owner Maddie Kosloski thinks she has the perfect paranormal exhibit for the harvest festival—a haunted grape press. But when she’s accused of stealing the press, and her accuser is found murdered, all eyes turn to Maddie. Maddie knows well the perils of amateur sleuthing and is reluctant to get involved. But her mother insists she investigate. Does her mom have a secret agenda? Or is she somehow connected to the murder? Facing down danger and her own over-active imagination, Maddie must unearth the killer before she becomes the next ghost to haunt her museum.

My Review:
3 out of 5 stars

This was my first book by this author.  This was also my first time ever reading a paranormal cozy mystery.  I normally tend to avoid the paranormal genre, but this book really sounded interesting and I'm glad I decided to give it a try.  The paranormal museum was such a unique idea and I really enjoyed that aspect of the story.  The paranormal wasn't too overdone and fit just right in with the storyline.  I also liked that you aren't really entirely certain if something paranormal is going on or not.  That really adds to the mystery and intrigue of things.  The pacing was a little slow at times but there are enough suspects and questions surrounding the murder to keep you intrigued as to how things are going to turn out.  Maddie was an enjoyable main character and I also liked GD the cat.  I really disliked the police detective Laurel though -- she was really mean.  All in all, I enjoyed the story and will go back and read the first book in this series.
I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.



Kirsten Weiss grew up in San Mateo, California. After getting her MBA, she joined the Peace Corps, starting an international career that took her around the fringes of the defunct USSR and into the Afghan war zone. Her experiences abroad not only gave her glimpses into the darker side of human nature, but also sparked an interest in the effects of mysticism and mythology, and how both are woven into our daily lives.
She writes paranormal mystery and suspense, blending her experiences and imagination to create vivid worlds of magic and mayhem.
Kirsten has never met a dessert she didn't like, and her guilty pleasures are watching ghost Whisperer re-runs and drinking good wine.
