No one entertains like Bailey
Ruth. Not only is she a ‘ghost’ from heaven, she
loves a good meal and always dresses to the nines.
With the sound of galloping hooves, Bailey Ruth is swept
up. Words are streamed to her by the rider – “He’s
always been such a fool… but there are those who love
him… try to save him from himself…” The
heavenly horse and rider drop Bailey on the Rescue Express
caboose. Wiggins is nowhere to be found. The Express drops
her at Adelaide, Oklahoma – her hometown. Bailey reaches
the home of Nick - a rich young man who returns home to seek
revenge. As Bailey observes Nick, someone tries to kill him.
Bailey’s sure she’s in the right place. But the
person she is supposed to protect isn’t a nice guy.
The resentment and threats between Nick and his childhood
friends lead to murder and Nick is the only suspect. Bailey
works hard to exonerate him but Nick’s Aunt (another
Ghost) doesn’t think Bailey is smart enough, so she
joins in. The two make unseen visits to Chief Cobb to monitor
the case and leave some clues behind. The Chief is a strong,
intelligent man. I wonder how he’ll take when he discovers
who has been helping him all along.
What an entertaining read. The galloping horse and Bailey
Ruth’s odd delivery to the caboose grabbed my attention.
I think I had a panic attack along with Bailey Ruth when she
realized she was stuck on earth. Bailey steps up when she
has to play detective, shop and find food with earthly means.
Hart, as always, offers plenty of false leads and possible
suspects. I’m so glad Bailey is back!
