ONCE UPON A GHOST – An Erin McCarthy Review

img_3367

It’s time for Bailey Burke’s final mystery! After not only discovering that she can speak to ghosts, Bailey chases down the murder of her best friend Ryan, his girlfriend, and a potential serial killer. NOW just when she thinks life has settled down and she can get back to work on her design and staging business, the afterlife rises once more.

Her newest client is double-duty: not only is she supposed to re-do his bachelor pad, he’s also her latest spectral case. After discovering Cezar in his ghastly form, Bailey can’t lose him and she decides to accept her fate and help him figure out what happens. Was he in the mob? Sure. Is he irritating? To no end. But Bailey is as sweet as Irish cream and can’t leave him on his own.

Battling mobsters and sneaky sheriffs, Bailey’s ill equipped to handle these mysteries on her own. Hello Marner! Her sexy cop boyfriend is much more prevalent and swoon in the final Murder by Design novel! He’s caring, he’s protective, but can he handle Bailey’s ghostly secret? Find the killer, save the ghost, get the guy. All in a days work for this design diva!


36347557.jpgWith Bailey Burke’s design and staging business booming- it turns out tangling with a serial killer is the best advertising ever- she has no time to lament her lack of love life, or wonder where her dead friend Ryan’s ghost has gone. She hasn’t seen him in months, but when she finds a body in a home she’s been hired to stage she’s hounded by the dead man’s ghost.

Having been a medium before, this guy is by far the most irritating ghost she’s ever met, with his constant need to talk over her and flick pennies at her head. Without Ryan to guide her, she’s on her own to figure out what the dead man needs from her. On top of all that, cop Jake Marner is back in her life, ostensibly to protect her, but mostly to confuse her as to whether they are dating or not.

Before she can say “Put It Where?” Bailey finds herself immersed in mob dealings, the secret world of male-only sweat baths, and double dealings. When another body turns up, there is no doubt that she’s in over her head… again.

SILENCE OF THE GHOST – An Erin McCarthy Review

img_2739

I LOVE the fact that Erin writes about my hometown in this series. It brings such a real flavor to the novel because I know the areas she’s speaking about.

When we last left Bailey, our new resident ghost whisperer, her best friend’s ghost was still hanging around as his (now) ex-girlfriend’s ghost appeared. On the hunt to find out where and why she died, Bailey discovers yet ANOTHER grisly scene. This poor girl can’t catch a break! So now with the mystery of a possible serial killer on the loose she needs to navigate her way through a past serial killer’s motives.

Ryan seems a little less involved during this mystery especially considering that it began with the murder of his then girlfriend. I really enjoyed the fact that we got to see more of Bailey being a true brainiac as she puts the pieces together herself. McCarthy did a wonderful job of giving evidence where my suspected culprit constantly changed with each new discovery.

With an ending sure to give you chills and goosebumps for the next installment!


35445552.jpg Expert home stager Bailey Burke has come to terms with the fact that her friend, Ryan, is a ghost, but she thought after they solved his murder together, he would get sucked into the light. Instead he’s hanging around and interfering in her love life, and mocking her inability to drink Jameson.

When a body is found near her historic neighborhood of Ohio City, mimicking the famous Torso Murders, and she starts hearing voices, Bailey thinks she’s really lost it now. Ryan’s ghost is one thing, but a whole gaggle of undead talking to her? No thanks. But Ryan informs Bailey she’s not nuts…she is a spiritual medium. And with him as middleman between the victims and the police, they can give the dead justice and he will finally get his one-way ticket to heaven. Considering Eliot Ness allegedly went to his grave bitter that it was the one case he couldn’t solve, Bailey doesn’t see how an uptight lightweight like herself can handle the modern equivalent. But now that Ryan has scared off every man she’s tried to date, including his former partner Marner, she has Saturday nights free for murder-mystery solving.

Yet dealing with the dead is more difficult than de-cluttering a hoarder’s house. Bailey finds herself pulled in all directions… and possibly conned by a killer.
