Never in my almost thirty years did I think my new normal would be talking to ghosts, yet here we are.

After inheriting a PI business, I find my clients are more incorporeal than not and are relying on me to solve their untimely deaths. Unfortunately, being a magnet for ghosts has its downside. Hello? Lack of privacy, for starters. Not to mention looking like a looney tune for holding animated conversations with myself. But the biggest problem? Their killers don’t want me on the case.

Now I have a new mystery to solve. Local psychic Myra Hansen woke up dead and she’s none too happy about it. Seems she didn’t see that one coming! Together with my ghostly best friend, a talking cat, and Captain Cowboy Hot Pants—or, as he likes to be called, Detective Kade Galloway—I’m in yet another race against time.

Catch a killer before the killer catches me.

Join Audrey Fitzgerald in the Ghost Detective series, a paranormal cozy mystery featuring a talking cat, a ghost, and a murder to solve. (Goodreads)


The writing style flows smoothly and it defines the characters very clearly through their actions and words. The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and I could picture in my mind’s eye the murder site and all the things that happened.

The characters are well developed and well rounded. Audrey is getting used to her new normal, having her friend, Ben, around as a ghost. At least she still gets to be with him, instead of missing him forever. When they have to find the killer of a local psychic, it will take all of her smarts and all of his ghosting if she is going to be successful. And Thor, the talking cat, helps her as much as he can, unless he is eating!

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a ghostly cozy mystery. I really enjoy this series and I cannot wait for the next one.
