Ghost on the Case by Carolyn Hart

Heaven is a nice place to live but Bailey likes her earth visits, too.  Playing detective can be fun.  She's sent to comfort a sister who is worried about her younger sister.  She never came home the night before and she has been contacted by a kidnapper.

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

This is a cozy mystery about a very rich man that is murdered.  The sister gets framed by the murderer.  Now Bailey has to find the killer and prove it was not the older sister.  It's not easy.

She's not supposed to show herself on earth but she's friends with the police chief.  And she couldn't comfort the sister without a physical form.  Still, being able to do things invisibly does sound attractive.  Until you bump into someone or try to read the newspaper...

She has plenty of suspects.  The rich man fought with his lawyers, workers and family.  He had a lover and was looking at another.  His ex-wives weren't responsible, they live too far away.  While the sister stole money to get the younger one back, she didn't take the coins and someone left the door unlocked for her.  The more facts Bailey finds out, the more confusing it gets.

Another person is murdered.  The sister is arrested.  Bailey has to get moving.  And when she finds the murderer, it's a good thing she's already dead.  The killer wants to kill her again.

There's plenty of action, budding romance, lots of weeding through suspects, and it takes a faint attempt at blackmail to prove who the killer was.  It'll keep you on your toes.
