Solving a murder might raise her spirits. But will it spring her spectral friend from Purgatory?
Mabel Gold still isn’t sure what happened. Traded by her husband for a busty bimbo the same age as their youngest daughter, the feisty sixty-something rejects the retirement community and heads west in a vintage camper. But the RV comes complete with a ghost who needs a good deed to get into Heaven, and cracking open a homicide at their first stop in Savannah could give them both a new lease on life.
Determined to dig up the dirt on the dead wheeler-dealer, Mabel and her phantom companion tackle the crime. But with two rich dudes from Dubai, a Willie Nelson lookalike mobster, and a widow nicknamed The Barracuda all on the suspect list, conjuring up the truth could take a real live miracle.
Can Mabel catch the killer before she’s the next soul crashing the Pearly Gates?
Wheeler-Dealer is the high-spirited first book in the hilarious Ghost & the Camper kooky mystery series. If you like golden-girl sleuths, zany characters, and sardonic humor, then you’ll love Rita Moreau’s witty whodunit.
This was a very good debut to the series. It has quirky characters, a good mystery and a ghost,which I love.
Mabel has been traded in for a younger model by her husband. She has five children and a few grandchildren. She has seen a lot, but none of that has prepared her for her next adventure. She buys a vintage camper and decides to hit the road with her friend Lily and her husband. They are going to take the summer and see what the United States has to offer. They will not be alone on their journey, they will also have a ghost traveling with them. A ghost that only Mabel can see. And when someone gets killed, Mabel will need all the help she can get.
The characters are well developed and well rounded. They are a quirky group of people, and at times, they are very funny. Mabel and Lily are great friends and they have each other’s back. They will have to try and figure out what happened and who is responsible. The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions pulled me into the story from the very beginning. The mystery was well plotted and not easily solved, which is the way I like it.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. I am looking forward to see what the next adventure Mabel and Irma have.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book and provided my honest review.
