Rating: 4/5 Stars

Synopsis from Goodreads: Mystery author Rachel Goldman is getting used to the idea that her fictional creation Duffy Madison has somehow taken flesh-and-blood form and is investigating missing person cases not far from where Rachel lives. Wait. No. She’s not getting used to it at all, and the presence of this real-life Duffy is making her current manuscript—what’s the word?—lousy. So she doesn’t want to see Duffy—the living one—at all. To make matters worse, when he shows up at her door and insists on talking to her, it’s about the one thing she doesn’t want to do: Find a missing person. But the man Duffy seeks this time around might be able to solve Rachel’s problem. He might just be the man Duffy was before he became Duffy five years ago. The only problem is she could be letting Duffy lead her into danger yet again…

My Review: This was a quirky, fun read that I really enjoyed reading. I enjoy the characters in the book and the sarcastic main character makes for an entertaining read. The premise that a character from a series Rachel writes has come to life was fascinating. The mystery in the story weaves into the main plot line well as they search for both a murderer and the truth about where Duffy really came from. Figuring out what the real deal is with Duffy is enough to keep me reading the series but luckily I really enjoy the books! I recommend starting with the first book in the series though. This isn’t really a good series to jump into the middle of. If you enjoy these books you should check out the Haunted Guesthouse series by the same author.

*I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*

The book is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble
