Honoring Our Veterans Today

Thank you to all the Vets out there. From the Revolution to this week, my family is serving the military in all branches.

I’m especially proud of my cousin Krissy, the one in front of the helicopter she flies along with the big planes. To all of you a big thank you and I’m proud to be from a family that served the real America.

Ghost on the Case: A Bailey Ruth Ghost Novel by Carolyn Hart

Ghost on the Case (Bailey Ruth #8)

Bailey Ruth Raeburn is back, racing against the Heavenly clock in an all-new mystery from the New York Times bestselling author of Ghost Times Two.

Bailey Ruth finds herself comforting a distraught sister when she’s sent to Adelaide, Oklahoma, on her latest mission. Susan Gilbert receives a $100,000 ransom demand for her younger sibling. When the caller wants Susan to pay a visit to her wealthy boss and take the cash from his safe, Bailey Ruth follows Susan to the home. But she finds herself in a quandary, knowing that robbery is hardly a Heavenly pursuit.

While Susan waits to hear back from the kidnappers, Bailey Ruth attempts to piece together how the criminals targeted Susan and how they know about her boss’s money. At a luncheon the previous week, Susan’s boss asked her to open the safe so all the attendees knew it was filled with cash. Could one of the rich man’s closest confidants be behind the abduction?

Bailey Ruth is positive she can use her detective skills to figure out which luncheon guest arranged the kidnapping. But an unexpected twist in the case soon has Bailey Ruth seeking a murderer who has plans to send more victims to the great beyond…

Bailey Ruth is back! As an emissary from the Good Intentions Department of Heaven, Bailey Ruth is assigned Susan’s case. And quite the mystery this is. As Bailey tries very hard ( okay maybe not too hard) to stay behind the scenes and not appear to anyone, she tries to gather clues and facts about everyone who was at the luncheon and if they had a motive to murder!

Bailey Ruth is just a fun character. Even when she has trouble with remembering the precepts of her office. It’s just a fun read.

I also noticed on this same day last year I reviewed the 7th book in this series! This is the 8th.

Out Now!    xx Patricia

Freddy and Jason and Michael and More!

Looking for some spooky reads this month? All of these look good to me. I’ve read Hell House, all the Anne Rice books, The Halloween Tree and Red Hill. All appropriately hellish.

It’s Thursday so back to work we go. Thunder game was awesome last night and we won. We woke up to Cold. I don’t know what degree of cold, but enough to send me back to the covers of my beloved bed. They say it should creep into the 70’s by afternoon. They also say Saturday night it’s going to freeze. I’m going to be in denial about that, just like last year. And it worked out just fine.

There were so many great reads that came out in October and November is going to be a big month too. So reading is the plan for the rest of the day.

I hope you are enjoying your day and if you aren’t happy where you are…move. You aren’t a tree.

Wicked Deeds (Krewe of Hunters, #23)

Eager to start their life together, historian Vickie Preston and Special Agent Griffin Pryce take a detour en route to their new home in Virginia and stop for a visit in Baltimore. But their romantic weekend is interrupted when a popular author is found dead in the basement of an Edgar Allan Poe-themed restaurant. Because of the mysterious circumstances surrounding the corpse, the FBI’s Krewe of Hunters paranormal team is invited to investigate. As more bizarre deaths occur, Vickie and Griffin are drawn into a case that has disturbing echoes of Poe’s great works, bringing the horrors of his fiction to life.

The restaurant is headquarters to scholars and fans, and any of them could be a merciless killer. Except there’s also something reaching out from beyond the grave. The late, great Edgar Allan Poe himself is appearing to Vickie in dreams and visions with cryptic information about the murders. Unless they can uncover whose twisted mind is orchestrating the dramatic re-creations, Vickie and Griffin’s future as a couple might never begin…

All Vickie and Griffin wanted was a little stop on the way to what would now be both of their homes, before Vickie enters the FBI Academy as part of the Krewe of Hunters, a paranormal group inside the FBI.

But that isn’t going to happen. When Mr. Poe himself puts in an appearance in Vickie’s dreams and in public, she is drawn in to helping him figure out how he died and who did it! But with bodies turning up badly staged like Poe’s works of fiction, they have more current crimes to figure out. Or are they all tied together in some bizarre way?

Always a fan of Graham and especially this paranormal series of characters, this one did not disappoint. Fans of history and fans of Poe will be thrilled with the outcome!
