"The captivating southwestern Irish countryside adds a delightful element to this paranormal series launch. Gethsemane is an appealing protagonist who is doing the best she can against overwhelming odds." - Library Journal (starred review)

"Charming debut." - Kirkus Reviews

"Gordon strikes a harmonious chord in this enchanting spellbinder of a mystery." - Susan M. Boyer, USA Today Bestselling Author of Lowcountry Book Club

"Just when you think you've seen everything, here comes Gethsemane Brown, baton in one hand, bourbon in the other. Stranded in an Irish village where she knows no one (but they all know her), she's got just six weeks to turn a rabblesome orchestra into award-winners and solve a decades-old murder to boot. And only a grumpy ghost to help her. There's charm to spare in this highly original debut." - Catriona McPherson, Agatha Award-Winning Author of The Reek of Red Herrings

"Gordon's debut is delightful: An Irish village full of characters and secrets, whiskey and music - and a ghost! Gethsemane Brown is a fast-thinking, fast-talking dynamic sleuth (with a great wardrobe) who is more than a match for the unraveling murders and cover-ups, aided by her various - handsome - allies and her irascible ghost. Can't wait to see what she uncovers next!" - Chloe Green, Author of the Dallas O'Connor Mysteries

"A fast-paced drama that kept me engaged in all aspects in the telling of this multi-plot tale that was hard to put down... The windup to the conclusion had me quickly turning the pages as I had to know how this will play out and to the author, I say "bravo" because now I need to read the next book in this captivating series." - Dru's Book Musings

"Recipe for a thoroughly satisfying mystery novel: 1) Take the best elements of vintage TV series such as The Ghost and Mrs. Muir and Murder, She Wrote 2) blend with fine whiskey and classical music 3) pour into the green, green landscape of Ireland. Murder in G Major is a smooth debut from brilliant newcomer Alexia Gordon." - Daniel J. Hale, Agatha Award-Winning Author

With few other options, African-American classical musician Gethsemane Brown accepts a less-than-ideal position turning a group of rowdy schoolboys into an award-winning orchestra. Stranded without luggage or money in the Irish countryside, she figures any job is better than none. The perk? Housesitting a lovely cliffside cottage. The catch? The ghost of the cottage's murdered owner haunts the place. Falsely accused of killing his wife (and himself), he begs Gethsemane to clear his name so he can rest in peace.

Gethsemane's reluctant investigation provokes a dormant killer and she soon finds herself in grave danger. As Gethsemane races to prevent a deadly encore, will she uncover the truth or star in her own farewell performance?
