Wagtail, Virginia, the top pet-friendly getaway in the United States, is gearing up for a howling good Halloween—until a spooky murder shakes the town to its core . . .
Holly Miller doesn’t believe in spirits, but the Sugar Maple Inn is filled with guests who do. The TV series in development, Apparition Apprehenders, has descended on Wagtail’s annual Halloween festivities to investigate supernatural local legends, and Holly has her hands full showing the ghost hunters a scary-fun time.
But the frights turn real when Holly’s Jack Russell, Trixie, and kitten, Twinkletoes, find a young woman drowned in the Wagtail Springs Hotel’s bathhouse—the spot of the town’s most infamous haunting. The crime scene is eerily similar to the creepy legend, convincing Holly that the death wasn’t just accidental. Now she’ll have to race to catch a flesh-and-blood killer—before someone else in town gives up the ghost . . .
What I thought of this book.
Some have said that there are ghost in Wagtail, but Holly is not a believer. She won’t turn away guest though so when the ghost hunters come to check out the town and a ghost that is suppose to be in her hotel she is not overly thrilled but curious.
Then one of the ghost hunters is found dead and there seems to be a few who might not be sad to see her gone. One of them being Eve who is brought onto the show as the cynic who tries to prove ghost don’t exist. Eve is dating Mark and apparently the deceased was trying to win Mark back.
I feel sorry for the young sheriff who can’t seem to get the older folk to take him serious and when he thinks it was murder nobody wants to believe him. It’s small town syndrome at it’s best, if you ever grew up in a small town you would know exactly how the poor boy feels. It’s hard to get people to take you serious when they remember you as a little kid.
Holly is not sure who is behind the murder but she is determined to figure it out as she doesn’t like these bad things happening on her turf. She just decided to move back and help run the hotel so she would hate for things to go down the tube before she gets things figured out.
I like Holly and her grandmother and aunt. Birdie her aunt is pretty comical. She got Holly up in the middle of the night saying she needed help just to time her and see how long it would take for her to come to her aid…lol.
I am a sucker for a ghost angle on any type of book and an avid fan of ghost hunter shows so I really enjoyed The Ghost and Mrs. Mewer. I can’t wait to see what will happen next in Murder Most Howl.
