A dog named Dog, a ghost with no memory, a realtor who specializes in haunted houses… Sounds like a good book for Halloween, right? I really enjoyed this cozy mystery. Maybe because the main character is someone I can relate to?
Mel was a cultural anthropologist before her mother died and she took over her father’s historical renovation contracting business. She not only works in a male-dominated industry, but she also keeps her clients and workers on their toes by showing up in flashy dresses, designed by a friend of hers trying to break into the fashion industry. Of course, I’ve never pulled a gun on an old boyfriend, but … I don’t want to give away too many of Mel’s surprises. Read the book.
I do think the dog on the cover art looks more Irish Setter than Golden Retriever though.
Do you believe in ghosts? You believe some people are better suited to see them, communicate with them, than others?
I suspect I’ll finish The Sugar Queen tonight. I love the cover art, and Sissy would too. Luckily, I’m reading it on the Nook and via my Nook app, so I don’t have to worry about Sissy drooling over the massive peppermint candies. Strangely, the app is smart enough to find where I left off on the Nook and update automatically, but the Nook makes me manually find where I left off on the app. Annoying, and I suspect the newer Nook versions are more compliant.
At any rate, you’ll get that review another day, and maybe a finished object report or three as well. What’s on your weekend agenda?
