Fixing to Die by Miranda James

The Ducote sisters are visiting an old house where a ghost or ghosts might be hanging around.  Mary and her husband are running a bed and breakfast and strange things are happening.  They get ready and take along their young man and their two pets.  Once they arrive, they do notice some things.

Berkley and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published October 3rd.

An'gel discovers the French Room she occupies has someone who moves things she puts in place.  Her nightgown goes under her pillow but it was on the foot on the bed when she went back to her room later.  Dickce finds a cold spot on the stair and sees a shadow that looks like a person but disappears immediately, like nothing was ever there.

If that's not odd enough, some of Mary's relatives show up and say they are staying.  Even a medium shows up uninvited.  Soon we have a nice large household full of guests.  And one of them is a killer.

Everyone has secrets.  Not everyone is telling the truth.  And when the male relative visitor asks to be in the French Room, An'gel moves out.  The next day he is dead.  And it's not from natural causes.

It's a twisted trail with stories from the past and present that must be tied together to find the killer.  I liked the ending.  It was different and worked like a charm.
