Fun Mystery! The Ghost and Mrs. McClure (Haunted Bookshop Mystery)

I (Rob) found a series of novels that involve two things I enjoy: Ghosts and mysteries. The series is called "A Haunted Bookshop Mystery" and it's  by Alice Kimberly (also known as Cleo Coyle who writes another fun series called "the Coffee House Mysteries.")
   I just read the first in the series called "The Ghost and Mrs. McClure" and it was really enjoyable. It kept you guessing. The characters were great. You come to love Penelope Thornton-McClure, the widowed young mom of an 8 year old, who co-runs a bookstore with her aunt Sadie. Penelope learns that she can actually hear the ghost of a detective who was murdered in the same shop back in the mid-1940s. The detective, Jack, speaks in 1940-lingo, and helps Penelope solve another murder.
   This was a really enjoyable first book, and I had previously read another in the series called "The Ghost and the Dead Deb" which was equally as enjoyable.
   SO, go get "The Ghost and Mrs. McClure." Since one of our good friends has the last name McClure, we're sending her this book. :)

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
