The Ghost and the Femme Fatale
Book #74 Read in 2013
The Ghost and the Femme Fatale by Alice Kimberly
This is the fourth book in a cozy mystery series. Penelope owns a book store and it seems to be a magnet for murder. Pen usually begins her own investigation, with help from her live-in ghost, former private investigator Jack Shepard. In this installment, there is a film noir festival going on in town and on the first night a near miss make Pen suspicious. The following morning, an author ends up dead in her bookstore and Pen is sure this was no accident. She begins her search for the culprit.
This series is a good cozy mystery series. I love the bookstore and small town setting. The cast of characters are a great batch, especially Pen, Jack, Pen's aunt Sadie and mailman and trivia whiz Seymour.
