Imagine this; Your life is almost perfect, you have a stable job, a loving handsome boyfriend, great friends…then imagine being run over by a hot-dog cart on the day of your engagement, and waking up with a small concussion. And the ability to see Ghosts. Well, one ghost essentially; A batty, dramatic, lady who claims to have been murdered for her vast fortune and is demanding your help.
This is what happens to Phoebe Mercer, an aspiring Legal Assistant for a top Law Firm. Now she finds herself solving a mystery that threatens her relationships and her career, as she discovers her boss’s hand in her ghostly friend’s demise. If things weren’t bad enough, Phoebe begins to battle an attraction to the Ghost’s handsome but cool nephew, while realizing quite a few people in her life are not as they seem. As she uncovers the secrets and lies around her, she finds that in order to solve this mystery, and be free of the Ghost, she must lie herself. The only catch? The secrets Phoebe has kept from the people she loves, could ruin everything for her, and the Ghost.

My Review of HAUNTING ME- 5 STARS!!
If a friend ever asks you, “Why do you read Cozy Mysteries?”- hand them this book! They will love this read and be hooked! HAUNTING ME (Haunting Me Series Book 1) features two enchanting and likeable characters. Phoebe, her Mom calls her Jitterbug, is smart, perky, cute and is a friendly and loyal gal.
When the story begins, Phoebe is pursuing her dream attorney job, and dream boyfriend, although both her goals are derailed by a runaway hot dog cart. As a result of her accident with the cart, Phoebe meets Edie, the second wonderful character in this book. Edie is an older society lady, but plenty of mystery surrounds her- mainly because Edie is a ghost, and a ghost with legal issues. You will bond with these two characters and root for them as they do their best to solve Edie’s problems. You will want to be best friends with Phoebe and Edie.
There are many twists and turns- a wedding, and an estate sale were among the many well-written and hilarious scenes. Add in the cast of Phoebe’s friends and relatives, their well-styled clothes and delectable food, plus a secret staircase, and you will not be able to put this fast paced story down. This is a fresh and contemporary mystery that will leave you feeling entertained.
You will be happy that the ending turns out as it does. Some of the solution was predictable, but in a good way- you will be rooting for the characters and want things to turn out as they did. But don’t worry- there are some twists and turns in the plot. And the best part of the ending- the phrase, “To be continued.” Thanks Author Nikki LeClair for a warm and cozy read, and I look forward to more in the series. Jena C. Henry
