Summary

The Ghostly Grounds: Murder and Breakfast is the debut novel in a charming new cozy mystery series by best-selling author Sophie Love, author of The Inn at Sunset Harbor series, a number one best seller with over 200 five-star reviews.

Marie Fortune, 39, a successful dog groomer in Boston, has had enough of catering to the wealthy and their pampered dogs. Realizing it is time to make a change, she quits and heads to a small coastal town in Maine, where she remembers fond summers as a kid.

Marie expects to go for a brief getaway - and is shocked to learn that her great-aunt left her an inheritance: a dilapidated, historic house high up on a hill overlooking the harbor. Marie feels an instant connection. Although the locals tell her it would be folly, Marie decides to renovate and give it a second life as a B&B.

But there is one thing she couldn’t have planned for: The house is haunted.

Two things, actually: Her great-aunt also left her a dog - and he is far from a typical dog. 

When an unexpected death occurs soon thereafter, solving the crime will be more than just a matter of curiosity for Marie - her very future may depend on it.

An engrossing cozy, packed with mystery, love, hauntings, travel, pets and food - anchored around a small town and a B&B in need of renovation that will capture your heart - The Ghostly Grounds is a cozy that will keep you listening to (and laughing out loud) late into the night. 

Books two and three in the series - Death and Brunch and Malice and Lunch - are now also available!

Hmm.

When learning to write, you’re often told to start at the action. This book took 19 chapters to reach a spot that had action in it. Chapters 19 and on were wonderful. The narrator had a nice voice, but I had to speed up the book because it is originally read so slow. The main character, can’t remember her name, seemed a little daft for being 40 and I was let down and felt like the book failed be because one critique of a ghost that never happened suddenly dismantled her bed and breakfast...that of which the novel is based around. The murder was solved in less than a page, and honestly, I felt like I wasted a credit. Save yours.

Boo the ghost buster

This is Book 1 in a new series & I think it’s off to a good start. Sophie Love has shown she can weave an interesting yarn in my opinion b/c I actually didn’t want to stop reading until I had finished this book. It kinda starts out a bit slow but before long, it’s full speed ahead with some twists & turns that make for a real page turner. My favorite character is Boo, which is no surprise as I’m a huge animal lover. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes light paranormal reading. Guess I’ll be ordering Book 2 soon.
