Mystery - Paranormal
by Cheryl Green
I love finding new mysteries series to add to my ever growing list
to read. So when an opportunity arises and I find myself tasked
with reading and reviewing a new-to-me series – I jump on
it. That is how I found myself starting the Pepper Martin series
at book #9 – Supernatural Born Killers.
It seems that
Pepper works at Garden View Cemetery as the relations manager. She
formerly was the tour guide for the cemetery and, after hitting
her head on a mausoleum, can now communicate with ghosts. In the
ghostly world, she is known as the solver of problems. Right now
her biggest problem is to find out why there are puddles in her
nice dry office. The puddles keep coming and seem to be associated
with Pepper’s ex-boyfriend Quinn Harrison. Quinn is a detective
who is currently on light duty since he was shot (he was dead for
a short time and revived) and has been banished from homicide to
work in the Community Service Unit.
Pepper finds another puddle at home and this one has a male ghost
with it. He is tied up and duct taped to a cinder block. Through
a ghostly game of charades, Pepper finds out the ghost is Jack Haggerty
who happens to be Quinn’s former partner. All Pepper has to
do is convince Quinn the ghost is real and get him to help solve
Jack’s murder. Another life is on the line and might be swimming
with the fishes if they don’t solve this crime very soon.
This is one fast-paced mystery that I stayed up very late to finish.
I loved the main character and can’t wait to dive into the
first eight books in the series. Wish I had them right now so I
could read them all and then tell Casey Daniels to hurry up and
write book #10. If you like your mysteries mixed with a little ghostly
action, then this is the series for you.
