A baker who sees the dead. One too many suitors. And a killer. Living in Honey Hollow can be murder.

*A laugh out loud standalone cozy mystery by New York Times Bestseller Addison Moore* All books in the series can be read individually, so dive on in!.***Includes RECIPE***

My name is Lottie Lemon, and I see dead people. Okay, so I rarely see dead people, mostly I see furry creatures of the dearly departed variety, who have come back from the other side to warn me of their previous owner’s impending doom.

Something terrible has happened to someone I love and my family may never be the same. As if that wasn’t bad enough, a wedding reception goes awry when a corpse hits the dance floor with a blade in his back. And the ghost that comes back to help solve the homicide? It’s that troublemaker extraordinaire, Florenza Canelli. As if she didn’t wreak enough damage in our lives the first time around—something tells me she’s about to outdo herself in a grand manner. Here’s hoping we survive the horror. And then there’s that mob war. It’s all going down in Honey Hollow this summer. Here’s hoping we make it out alive. Lottie Lemon has a brand new bakery to tend to, a budding romance with perhaps one too many suitors, and she has the supernatural ability to see the dead—which are always harbingers for ominous things to come. Throw in a string of murders, and her insatiable thirst for justice, and you’ll have more chaos than you know what to do with. Living in Honey Hollow can be murder.
