Cate Dean's Ghost of A Chance

Happy 4th of July Dear Readers! I hope you have a safe and happy holiday...

Wonderful cozy and brilliant meet-cute! I just finished Cate Dean's Ghost of a Chance and fell in love, a book that I bought. What a wonderful paranormal cozy this is and I can not wait to read the next. This doesn't read like a paranormal cozy but it is brilliant. Loved it! Not your average cozy either. With an American main character living in England, I was not sure what I could expect but I really enjoyed this storyline and character. She has a wonderful best friend, shop and new life, as well as unexpected joy and excruciating pain. This is a very good read and a series I will add to my favorites for sure.

The first book of a fun cozy mystery series ~ with a touch of supernatural.Welcome to Holmestead, England ~ where an American ex-pat, an archaeologist, and murder turn this picture postcard village upside down.Maggie Mulgrew runs The Ash Leaf, an antique shop in the quaint village of Holmestead, England ~ which has nothing to do with Sherlock, thank you very much. She sells her goods to disappointed tourists, and locals who appreciate her eclectic taste.Professor Pembroke Martin is hunting down an artifact that had been stolen by a former assistant ~ a hand-blown apothecary jar that is the center of an old ghost story. His search leads him to Holmestead, and a stubborn, fascinating American who has acquired the box that once contained the rare jar.When the missing jar turns up, clutched in the hand of the very dead local historian, Martin becomes the prime suspect. With his future on the line, Martin turns to Maggie for help, and they join forces to find the real killer.

I truly enjoyed Ghost of a Chance and hope that you will too. You can find it on Amazon by clicking here.
