This is the fourth book in what’s become one of my favorite series, Salem B&B by author Traci Wilton. the pen name for the writing duo of Traci Hall and Patrice Wilton. My favorite character of course, is the hilarious and lovable ghost Dr. Jack Strathmore. Charlene’s a great character who just wants to help, but her nosiness and impulsive plowing forward with ideas sometimes get her into hot water. The Salem B&B is definitely someplace I’d stay if it was real though (possibly just for Minnie’s amazing food she makes!).
My Goodreads review:
Every time I read one of the books in this series, I’m more in love with Dr. Jack the ghost, lol. As if he couldn’t get any more awesome or funny, he sure proved it in this book! Then there’s that human cutie named Sam. I can honestly see why Charlene has such a hard time and loves each one of them in their own way. Although Sam believes in tough love and learning things the hard way, as Charlene was going to find out later in the book.
I had a feeling about midway or more toward the end of whodunit, but boy was I wrong! The showdown was pretty epic, and a happy ending was had by all…except for the perp and dead woman that is. I really love Avery’s character and how she’s changed and grown. I’m willing to bet that Charlene wishes she could have adopted the girl had she known her when she was younger, but at least they got some good quality time together outside B&B working hours. It was fun to see Charlene kick back and actually go somewhere with her girlfriends too for a change. I always hate for books in this series to end, because it means I have to wait patiently on the next one!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher via NetGalley, and my opinions are my own.
