Imagine this; Your life is almost perfect, you have a stable job, a loving handsome boyfriend, great friends…then imagine being run over by a hot-dog cart on the day of your engagement, and waking up with a small concussion. And the ability to see Ghosts. Well, one ghost essentially; A batty, dramatic, lady who claims to have been murdered for her vast fortune and is demanding your help.
This is what happens to Phoebe Mercer, an aspiring Legal Assistant for a top Law Firm. Now she finds herself solving a mystery that threatens her relationships and her career, as she discovers her boss’s hand in her ghostly friend’s demise. If things weren’t bad enough, Phoebe begins to battle an attraction to the Ghost’s handsome but cool nephew, while realizing quite a few people in her life are not as they seem. As she uncovers the secrets and lies around her, she finds that in order to solve this mystery, and be free of the Ghost, she must lie herself. The only catch? The secrets Phoebe has kept from the people she loves, could ruin everything for her, and the Ghost.

I am discovering that there are many types of cozy mysteries. Haunting Me falls into the “chick lit cozy” category. The scenes play out like they would in a chick flick movie, and the writing style is light and breezy. A little bit of humor, a little bit of romance, and a little bit of mystery.
Edie the ghost is a hoot – and she was my favorite character in the book. She had the most dimension and some of the best lines. She was bold and brassy and on a mission – to solve her own murder and the mystery of her missing will. Edie and Phoebe make an interesting team and discovering what they were up to next was highly entertaining as the story progressed!
Bottom Line: While the writing style in Haunting Me isn’t my fave, the story itself has enough appeal to keep me reading. Edie and Phoebe and Porter stand out from the rest of the characters, and the romance angle has me looking forward to book two! If you were a fan of the TV show Ghost Whisperer, you will enjoy this unique cozy mystery!

My Rating: 3.5 stars / Liked it!
Reviewer’s Note: This is a general market book. As such, it has general market language, though not excessively so.

I’m not usually a cozy reader but this sounds fun! Edie sounds like the type of character I love.
She’s a hoot!
