May Review: The Ghost and the Dead Deb - Alice Kimberley

Good Afternoon Bookworms

This is the next installment in the haunted bookshop mystery series. Having read the first one back in September last year this second installment had been on my list for a few months and I finally managed to get it ordered in at the library.  Number 3 is already in my library books TBR pile!

I was really pleased to meet back up with these characters and get drawn into their world.  Penelope Thornton-McClure is co-owner of Buy the Book which is haunted by Jack the ghost of a 1940's Private Detective.  In the first book Jack is unable to leave the book store but the author has come up with a clever twist in this story to bring Jack in to the outside world. 

Penelope and Jack are hunting down clues to two murders; a young high-society girl and the author of a tell-all book covering that unsolved murder.  This a light and easy read and the Quibblers community is delightful and funny. I read this very quickly as I really enjoyed spending time with Penelope, Jack and all the characters.
