Review of The Ghostly Groundskeeper

The Ghostly Groundskeeper

A Tess and Tilly Cozy Mystery, Book #12

Kathi Daley

5 Stars


If you love small towns, endearing relationships, food, animals, and a touch of murder, you will love this mystery series set in the small town of White Eagle Montana.

In book 12 in the series, Tony offers to pay for a televised ad promoting the annual haunted house, and Tess agrees to act as spokesperson. She shows up to film the piece and quickly discovers that the ‘haunted’ in haunted house was proving to be more real than imaginary. Join Tess and the gang as she decides to uncover the truth about former resident Doctor Franktown once and for all. (Amazon)


The characters are well rounded and well developed.  Tess and Tony are getting ready for the town’s annual Halloween festivities.  Unfortunately, they find a dead body.  Now they have to figure out the killer and get ready for the festival.  They will need the help of their family and friends to figure it out.

The writing style flows and the book is an easy read. The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions pulled me into the story and took me on a great adventure.  The mystery was well plotted and there were enough suspects to consider and clues to sift through. 

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.  I am looking forward to seeing what happens to Tess and Tony next.
