Bailey Ruth Raeburn is a ghost on a mission. A mission to help guide the spirit of Jimmy Taylor to Heaven. She has been sent as an emissary by Wiggins, from Heaven’s Department of Good Intentions to persuade Jimmy to climb the golden staircase, but the young man isn’t ready to go. He doesn’t want to leave his beloved, Megan Wynn, because she is a suspect in the murder of one of her co-workers, a nasty lawyer named Doug Graham.

Having helped the local Adelaide, OK police solve murders before makes it easier for Bailey Ruth to get involved. There’s a detective with whom she can communicate, and it even helps that Megan is aware of both Jimmy’s presence and Bailey Ruth’s.

While the waters are a little murky because of an expensive ring which was stolen from the victim’s desk, and the murder weapon turning up in Megan’s desk, Bailey is able to use her other worldly abilities to appear and question witnesses and other suspects to help to clear Megan’s name, and help Jimmy to move on to Heaven.

I’ve always enjoyed this series because it is written well with solid mysteries. What I think I like most, however, is the comforting idea that there are indeed spirits who live on and are able to return to Earth to help others in need.

If you’re looking for a cozy mystery with a paranormal flair, you can’t go wrong with Ghost Times Two.
