    So fun!

    I loved this fun story of Bailey and her antics. I have not read any of these stories in the series prior but looks like I might have to because this book is so interesting and fun. I highly recommend this book. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Great paranormal cozy mystery

    Vera, her grandmother’s vibrant and outgoing friend, lived life with passion and a great sense of style. After spending the day shopping with Vera and her grandmother, Bailey was shocked that Vera had been found frozen to death in her backyard that same night. Bailey is a medium and her ghost friend Jake shows up saying they have a quota. Vera also shows up, meaning it was murder. The police believe she was just a mixed up old lady, so it is left up to Bailey to solve her murder. This is a great paranormal cozy mystery about a woman who sees ghosts. The characters are full of personality and are likeable if not a bit kooky and unique. The murder mystery is chalked full of dead ends, surprising twists, dangerous situations and unerpected obstacles. The main character has to juggle her family, friends, romantic interest, her job, and demanding ghosts, all while trying to solve a murder no one believes is a murder. It is witty, charming and funny. This book is part of the Murder By Design series but can be read as a stand-alone, only be prepared to want to read all the books in the series.

    A Cute, Lighthearted Summer Beach Read

    Unfortunately I skipped books 2-4 in this series, so I missed some key material. However, despite this, it was pretty easy to pick it back up again. I found this book to be cute. It was lighthearted and fun, without any deep-seated issues or significant past hurts. Bailey already has a boyfriend and there isn’t a crisis in their relationship to overcome. She has already moved past her earlier feelings about her best friend. She finds out that she has a monthly quota of murders to solve and is visited by multiple ghosts while trying to do so. Her friend Ryan gives a little guidance and Bailey has a series of misadventures along the way. In some ways it reminded me of a lighter version of a Janet Evanovich mystery with a combination of comedy and a mystery to solve with an established romance continuing in the background. This one wasn’t as funny as the car racing series, but I’d say it would be a good beach read for this summer, so give it a try.

    Who Killed Vera?

    Bailey Burke was shopping with her friend Alyssa, her grandmother Burke, and her grandmother’s stylish and vibrant 95-year-old friend Vera. She was thinking of Jake Marner, her super-hot detective boyfriend who sort of believes that she really sees ghosts. It started when Ryan showed up, dead eight months and suddenly there he was, telling Bailey she had to solve his murder. After that, other ghosts made an appearance. While on a date with Jake, Bailey’s grandmother called her, distraught that Vera had just been found dead and frozen in the backyard, headfirst in the snow! As she and Jake were leaving the bar, Vera popped up for a moment. Bailey knew something was off about her death – she would never go outside like that in a thin nightgown and a pair of $2,000 mohair high-heel boots! She was the very epitome of fashion sense! When Jake called the other precinct to find out what the investigation showed, they were saying it was dementia! Bailey had been shopping with her a couple hours ago – Vera was not at all confused as they said. If the police wouldn’t investigate this obvious homicide, then Bailey would do it! Would the murderer try to stop her if she seems to be making progress? This was a good story that I really enjoyed. The characters were very well portrayed so that the reader could actually feel their personalities. Adding Ryan the ghost to the mix was really fun since his irreverent joking always got a rise out of Bailey. Follow the clues with Bailey and see if you are able to figure out who would have killed Vera – and why!

    Great reading

    Laugh out loud fun, emotionally exciting, magically engaging and action packed adventure filled with danger, mystery, paranormal thrills and heart pounding twists... was a great read from beginning to end. This is a great read and I look forward to the next Murder by Design adventure.
