Flynn Daly is turning thirty. And thirty is the age where she has to, gulp, get a job. Not just any job, but a job working for her real estate magnate father, a man who's tired of supporting his daughter through her many careers. So when their great-aunt Esther Goodhouse, proprietress of a historic inn nestled in Nowhere, New York, dies, Flynn finds herself smack dab in the country, contending with a hotel staff that's unsure of their new boss, a scruffy, sexy ex-policeman named Jake Turner who's convinced that Esther's death wasn't as natural as it seemed, and the ghost of Aunt Esther herself, who starts showing up in Flynn's dreams and undoing all the personal touches that Flynn tries to make to her new home.… (more)

I didn't expect to like this book as much as I did. It was a fast read; but I came to care about getting Flynn and Jake together. I did figure out some of the plot way in advance, but that was ok. If you're looking for a chick lit romance with mystery, murder, and mayhem, this could be the book for you. ( )

madcap paranormal romantic mystery : The guilt was unbearable even though Flynn Daly knows she did nothing wrong. The pressure from her family is incredible for her to get back into the family business as even sister Freya arrives in South Boston to persuade Flynn that they need her. Reluctantly after her sister pulls out the daddy had a heart attack card; Flynn agrees to temporarily run her late Great Aunt Esther's inn The Goodhouse Arms in Scheintown, New York.

Former cop Jake Tucker works as a bartender at Aunt Esther's inn. He believes Gordon Chase killed Esther because she refused to sell her inn to him; the motive is to get the heir to sell. Jake is attracted to Flynn, but thinks she had one too many Boston baked beans. Flynn assumes she must still have the aftereffect of her one time indulgence in chocolate martinis as she is halfway in love with the bartender and worse believes Esther's ghost is playing matchmaker while demanding her niece and her employee find her killer.

Few authors if any can match the entertaining Rich insanity as this author does consistently (see THE COMEBACK KISS and MAYBE BABY). Her latest tale is a madcap paranormal romantic mystery with a strong lead couple CRAZY IN LOVE and a deep support cast especially the ghost, the potential buyer, and other inn occupants. The investigation is clever and the romance enjoyable as Aunt Esther interferes with both leading to a wild one sitting read.

Fun, frothy. For a change, particularly in chicklit, SWEET characters. Flynn Daly, though mouthy, prickly, is a likable, smart protaganist. Jake Tucker, youngest brother of four sisters, bartender at the inn Flynn is sent as the owner's 'presence', is a genuinely good guy. This is a quick, enjoyable, satisfying, and yes, worthwhile on the frothy end of things, read. ( )
