Penelope Thornton-McClure manages a Rhode Island bookshop rumored to be haunted. When a bestselling author drops dead signing books, the first clue of foul play comes from the store's full-time ghost-a PI murdered on the very spot more than fifty years ago.
Is he a figment of Pen's overactive imagination? Or is the likable, fedora-wearing specter the only hope Pen has to solve the crime?
Praise for The Ghost and Mrs. McClure "A deliciously charming mystery with a haunting twist!"--New York Times bestselling author Laura Childs "Quindicott's enigmatic townspeople come alive in this quirky mystery and readers will eagerly anticipate future installments--and the continuing easy banter and romantic tension between Jack and Penelope."--RT Book Reviews "Ms. Kimberly has penned a unique premise and cast of characters to hook us on her first of a series."--Rendezvous "A charming, funny and quirky mystery starring a suppressed widow and a stimulating ghost who is attracted to her even though they can only meet in her dreams. He is hard boiled in the tradition of Phillip Marlowe and she is a genteel Miss Marple; yet the two opposites make an explosive combination. Alice Kimberly definitely has a hit series if the first book is anything to go by."--Midwest Book Review "What a delightful new mystery series! I was hooked from the start....I adored the ghost of Jack....Pairing him with the disbelieving Penelope is a brilliant touch."--Roundtable Reviews
