Pressed to Death: A Perfectly Proper Paranormal Museum Mystery #2 by Kirsten Weiss

When the woman cop comes through the door, she knows she is bringing trouble.  Ever since she was around when the cop's long blonde locks caught on fire, she's been the cop's enemy.  It wasn't her fault but she was present and that was enough.

Midnight Ink and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published March 8th.

Maddie runs a paranormal museum and has recently acquired a grape press.  She has all the appropriate paperwork and is planning to exhibit it during the harvest festival.  The cop says she bought stolen merchandise and she's taking it as evidence.  Showing her the paperwork does no good.  There goes her main exhibit...

It gets worse when she goes to the festival with her mother and finds the man who accused her of theft dead in with grapes for stomping.  You'd think she killed him.

This more mystery than paranormal but it was interesting tale.  You learn about wineries, family troubles and another victim shows up.  Maddie's boyfriend suddenly is incommunicado because his old girlfriend showed up and he has a son he didn't know about.  She's homeless and is living with him presently.  This doesn't make Maddie happy.  But the male cop and Maddie have noticed each other now.  Maybe there's a new romance in the future?

The only problem is that Maddie has baited the killer and he's not going to disappoint her, he comes after her.
