Ghostly Paws by Leighann Dobbs
A Mystic Notch Cozy Mystery
Wilhemenia Chance has moved back to her home town of Mystic Notch in the mountains of New Hampshire to take over her grandmother's bookstore. Previously, she worked "down south", as an investigative reporter. As in all good cozy mysteries, there is a cat. Pandora belonged to Willa's grandmother and came with the house. And of course, Willa finds a body. And now the ghost of Lavinia Babbage has appeared and implored Willa to find her killer.
As Willa investigates. she finds that things are not what they seem in Mystic Notch. She begins to suspect even her friends. There are quirky sidekick characters. Pepper owns a tea shop, Elspeth is a neighbor with a love of cats and seems to always know what is happening in Mystic Notch. Then there is that strange green paperweight at her grandmother's house.
Will the killer be one of her friends or a complete stranger? Will Sheriff Eddie Striker be there to assist or hinder her? I think I am going to like this series. I did not have the killer pegged until the very end, even though there were plenty of clues now that I know.
