Team Destiny and Archie's Apparition (Team Destiny Paranormal Cozy Mystery Book 2) by [Belinda White]

Sometimes, dealing with family is hard.

When Mom scheduled a father and daughter shopping trip to the mall, I was more than a little anxious about it. It wasn’t that I didn’t like Archie. I did.

It was just awkward. Hey, unless you’ve had a father you never knew you had thrown at you after twenty-three years on earth, don’t judge me.

Unfortunately, the day turned into more than just awkward when Archie freaked out on me in the mall.

He thought he was going crazy.

The reality was much, much worse.

Now, as was per our usual it seemed, we were in a race against time to uncover and deal with the big baddie before it was too late for a close friend to Archie.

And just maybe too late for us too.

Because the big baddie we were up against this time was like nothing we’d ever faced before.

It was a really good thing we had a full team at our backs, huh?

Team Destiny and Archie’s Apparition is the second book in the Team Destiny Paranormal Cozy Mystery Series. If you like your mysteries with strong women and a touch of magic, what are you waiting for? Jump on in, the magic is ready for you! (Amazon)

With the help of her batty great-aunt and the sexy Heath Tilney, Eliza hurries to untangle the web of lies and secrets. As corpses start to pile up faster than the clues, Eliza fears the estate’s family graveyard will swallow another body: hers. (Amazon)

To make matters worse, she sees a man who looks exactly like her dad, but he vanishes before she can be sure.

What they don’t know is how Bernadette’s life is filled…filled with everyone’s hidden secrets and obsessions. After all, she does deliver their mail and hears all the dirty laundry southern folks love to sweep secrets under the rug.

While on her route, Bernadette finds out the beloved Sugar Creek Gap Country Club is being sold and turned into condos. The developer is Bernadette’s best friend, Mac Tabor and right now he’s not very popular.

The entire town is against the development and eager to vote it down, vowing they will do whatever needs to be done to stop the sell of the country club to Mac Tabor.

Chuck Shilling, majority owner of the country club, and Mac have a public fight because Chuck is rethinking of selling the club to Mac. When Chuck is found dead, Mac Tabor is the number one suspect.

Bernadette discovers she’s got a penchant for discovering clues that just might help STAMP OUT a killer who is on the loose while trying to save Mac Tabor from going to prison for a murder he didn’t commit.
Mail Carrier Bernadette Butler makes sure she checks on all of her elderly customers on her mail carrier route during the colder months. It makes her feel good and lets face it, she’s trying to keep her mind off the feelings she’s having for her deceased husband’s best friend, Mac Tabor.

Mail carrier, Bernadette (Bernie) Butler, along with the Front Porch Ladies, are curious of their new neighbor, Courtney Gaines, who is the niece of Florence Gaines, the wealthiest widow in Sugar Creek Gap. Florence lets it be known that she is seeing Zeke Grey, which doesn’t set well with the Front Porch Ladies. They were all in competition for Zeke’s attention.

Shortly after learning that Florence, who announced it rather loudly, that she and Zeke got married, while delivering the mail, Bernie overhears what could be the first marital spat.

As Bernie is happily awaiting the birth of her first grandchild, her best friend shares a feeling that something isn’t right between Bernie’s son, Grady, and her daughter-in-law, Julia. Grady seems to be very chummy with Courtney, which has Bernie singing high praise of Julia and how there is a new baby on the way.

When Florence turns up dead in mulch, coupled with what Sheriff Angela Hafley mentioned, Bernie can’t help but want to get involved and when Sheriff Angela requests Bernie to be a ‘snoop consultant’, she readily agrees.
