When Maddie Kosloski’s career flatlines, she retreats to her wine-country hometown for solace and cheap rent. Railroaded into managing the local paranormal museum, she’s certain the rumors of its haunting are greatly exaggerated. But a new ghost may be on the loose. A fresh corpse in the museum embroils Maddie in murders past and present. With her high school bully as one of the officers in charge, Maddie doubts justice will be served. When one of her best friends is arrested, she’s certain it won’t be. Maddie grapples with ghost hunters, obsessed taxidermists, and the sexy motorcyclist next door as outside forces threaten. And as she juggles spectral shenanigans with the hunt for a killer, she discovers there truly is no place like home.

    Of course I was lured to this book by the "Paranormal" themed museum the main character gets to manage when coming back to her home town. However, the book turned out to be a very lightweight women's whodunit mystery, whereas the paranormal museum served only as an unusual setting. So, apart from the obvious murder, there is the GD (ghost detecting) cat and an unsolved historical murder case that our heroine gets intrigued with and starts to investigate. Also, some mysterious sounds, temperature drops and the like may hint at ghost activity, but unfortunately that's all there is to it. The museum's paranormal exhibits - creepy dolls, a ghost cabinet (loved that one, never heard of such a thing before), an ouija board and other strange stuff - would have made excellent raw material for a supernatural story, but other than to throw them in for good measure the author seemed to have no use for them, which is a shame and definitely a missed opportunity. As is, I wouldn't have minded if the story played in a boutique, a jewelery or any other store. Those may even have been more fitting, considering the recurring detailed descriptions of the women's clothing style. Overall, this is a perfectly proper murder mystery - nothing to say against that, but just not what I expected. So don't let yourself be fooled (as I did) to think the adjective "Paranormal" has any deeper meaning - like the museum's exhibits it seems to be there for decoration purposes only. However, I do like the cover image. A relaxing easy read recommended for lazy beach days or boring train rides. (I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review)
