If ever a whole town could be haunted, Devil's Moon, Kentucky would be that town. Ripley Van Raden, or Rip as her friends call her, has come back to her hometown to start her own ghost tour business. That’s not her only career path though. Librarian by day, and ghost tour guide by night, Rip is ready to take on the ghosts following her around and the mysterious residents who show up for more than the tour in the Devil’s Moon Cemetery.

Her first day on the job as librarian, Ripley finds a dead body and a ghost who can only communicate through electronics. Who knew ghosts could send text messages? To make things even more complicated, Ripley meets a hot cop who happens to also be a ghost hunter. She doesn’t know if Brannon Landon is interested in helping her or just around for the paranormal activity.

When Rip discovers threatening notes between the pages of a novel, she must solve the library patron’s mysterious death before she unwillingly joins the other side of her haunted tour.

My Thoughts:       This book is easily five stars. I loved the quirky town of Devil’s Moon and the people of this small town.

Rip, returned to her hometown after she broke with her cheating boyfriend. I like that Rip is hurt but doesn’t let the baggage of the break up keep her from going about her life. She is effectively making her dreams come true with her Haunted Tours and being the head Librarian at the town Library.

Rip sees ghosts but doesn’t want to believe it at first. She is drawn to the paranormal as it seems a lot of people in Devil’s Moon are. After the death of a library patron Rip feels the need to find the murderer. She is assisted in this by her friend Tammy, Annie the first Librarian’s ghost and a few other specters. During the adventure Rip meets a handsome police officer…que the new love interest. Things get a little dicey at times, but Rip and Tammy figure it out whodunit and confront the culprit before another life is taken.

I really liked the characters. The story has the right amount of spookiness, mystery and a little flirtations. It’s the perfect cozy mystery, very nicely done, Ms. Pressey. I will definitely be recommending this one to my friends and reading the next book in the series: A Walk on the Haunted Side.
