When Bailey Ruth Raeburn passed over into the great beyond, she was delighted to discover her sleuthing days would last an eternity. Joining Heaven's Department of Good Intentions, she uses her unique advantages as a ghost--sometimes you see her, sometimes you don't--to help those in need and ensure the wicked get their just deserts. However, on this latest mission, Bailey Ruth finds it more difficult than ever to keep up with her boss Wiggins's rules for good spirit deportment. Not only is the woman she is supposed to save determined to thwart Bailey Ruth's good intentions at every turn, she just so happens to be one of Bailey Ruth's oldest enemies. Not that that should matter to one of Heaven's best and brightest emissaries, but still, there is only so much a person can put up with--living or dead. But solving Bailey Ruth's toughest case yet means managing a recalcitrant charge, a fraudulent medium, a mother's heartbreak, old passions and new, and a telltale rawhide dog bone. Heaven help her!

Carolyn G. Hart has done it again. I enjoy books that are done in series because I grow so fond of the characters it is a melancholy time when I finish a book because I have to say good-bye to the friends made in the stories. That is lessened to some extent when we get to move on to the next Bailey Ruth Raeburn story. We again get to spend time with Bailey Ruth and see what the Department of Good Intentions has planned.
I found this book enjoyable in particular in the way the author played out the relationship between Kay and Bailey Ruth. It was reassuring in the end but I won't say more as not to spoil the ending for anyone.
If you like light mysteries that are interesting but NOT suspenseful to the point of being a horror, then perhaps you should try out this author. There will be no nightmares, only good wholesome entertainment. She has not yet disappointed me and I find her plots silly at times, yet fun and a good source of entertainment.

A good book for the plane. A bit breezy, a bit twee; agree with Palomino.

Silly. Cozy. If you like this author, you'll like this book.

I like the ghost better than Annie from Death on Demand, actually.
