Summary

Sweetfern Harbor Bed and Breakfast cozy mysteries, perfect for those moments when you are waiting at an appointment or want to enjoy a quick listen.

Halloween draws closer and each day brings more imaginative ghost stories to Brenda Sheffield’s attention. She is well aware that the Sheffield Bed and Breakfast is conducive to the notions the place is haunted. When her young reservationist Allie Williams asks her if she believes the inn is haunted, Brenda brushes it off. Just thoughts along those lines, causes her dread. She adamantly assures the young woman there are no ghosts roaming the hallways. Allie and housekeeper Phyllis Lindsey come up with the idea to give candlelight tours during Sweetfern Harbor’s Halloween festivities. First, Brenda must find out all she can about her bed and breakfast from the local library.

When she meets with Mrs. Perch, Librarian, she is horrified to discover the sinister side of Sheffield Bed and Breakfast. She has no idea so many disturbing events occurred over the years in her beloved inn. Brenda finally decides to agree to the tours and excitement grows. Even Brenda is willing to partake as a Guide the first night. She easily gets into her role until foreboding washes over her outside the Eddy Room where a guest was found murdered not so long ago. She collapses when she spots something unexpected stretched across the bed. Detective Bryce Jones, a member of her tour group, takes command of the situation. The Halloween decoration is in fact a dead body wrapped as a mummy.

The next day when Brenda recovers from her shock, she meets with William Pendleton, lifetime resident of Sweetfern Harbor and historian. She needs more details regarding the history of the bed and breakfast. During their lunch together at the Pendleton home, more mysterious events unfold. William’s long-time chef has mysteriously disappeared, as has his chauffeur. Their disappearances add to the mystery of the identity of the mummy-like figure which Brenda feels sure are connected. If Brenda can discover what has happened to them, she may solve how a mummy ended up on one of her beds during a Halloween tour. There are no ghosts roaming throughout the stately Sheffield Bed and Breakfast, or so she hopes.

Boo

I enjoyed this light hearted cozy mystery. It was a quick easy listen with no complicated twists, having said that there was no real suspects so it might have been better if it had been longer giving us more people to wonder about. Instead the story focused on all the previous murders at the hotel (not a place I would recommend staying at with that many murders) and which victim might be the ghost. Don't let the ghost talk put you off if you are not a fan of things that go bump in the night, as it isn't a paranormal story. You are introduced to a lot of the characters at the start of the book and it might be a bit confusing keeping them straight if you haven't read or listened to the previous books but it is a great addition to a fun and quirky series. And also includes a hint of romance.
Saving up for a wedding, Brenda gets talked into opening up the B&B for a ghostly haunted tour of the place. Having lost two guest from being spooked by a ghost, Brenda isn't sure it's a good idea but the B&B has a lot of history, not all of it good and curious visitors would pay good money to learn about. The problem with that is somebody thinks the haunted house is the prefect place to dump a body. The last thing Brenda wants is the possibility of another ghost to scare guests away, can she find out the identity of the murdered man and who killed him and explain the ghost sightings? Or will the B&B become a spooky house all year around?
I have heard a few books read by this narrator and they have all been a fun cozy light read and just perfect for her voice.

Fun cozy about a "haunted" B&B

Brenda has some guests who have checked out in a rush. They claim there are ghosts at the B&B. Brenda has never heard of anything amiss before, but she checks out some historical information at the library. It appears that there have been deaths there. She decides to check out the ghost stories herself.

At the same time, she's been convinced to open her B&B for ghost tours. This cozy mystery can be read and enjoyed by almost any reader.

I listened to the audio version of this book. I'm not crazy about the narrator, but I thought the story was fun, particularly as Halloween is getting close.

Better than expected

I've read a couple of books in this series and I think I like this one more than some of the others. It's a cool idea to have a haunted tour in a hotel, especially one with a haunted history.

Mystery

I enjoyed this cozy mystery. I loved the characters and storyline. This book is fast paced and intriguing. I loved the slight twist in the middle of the story. Kasey Logan did a good job in doing voices and narration. I received this book from Audiobooks Unleashed and this is my honest unbiased review.

A very spooky episode!

Brenda's B&B is based within a very early historical home. There has been a lot of living and dying happening over the years of the house's existence.
Halloween is a good time to acknowledge the history of the house.
However, there's someone with an axe to grind, that takes this time to sow fear and discontent within in the small seaside resort. Luckily, Brenda is quick witted enough to be on alert and well, your best read the full story for yourself.

An Inn that is known for the number of murders there. The setting is Halloween, ghost stories are many, questions is the Inn now haunted. Good enjoyable cozy story
