“Usually I take a pass when it comes to novels like this with talking ghosts and other supernatural elements, but after reading just a few chapters of this one I was hooked. Not only are the characters fun, but the writing is also crisp and the plot features some unexpected twists and moves quickly.” ~ Times Publishing

“If you like twists and turns and a good mystery. With southern charm and well Ghosts tossed in then this is definitely for you!” ~ Crossroads Reviews

“The quirky characters, humor, ghosts, suspense, small town dynamics, romance and plenty of southern charm combine to give readers a story they are sure to find charming. This unusual series is a wonderful addition to the cozy mystery genre.” ~Romance Junkiew
