Synopsis from Goodreads: Maureen's career as a sportswear buyer hits a snag just before Halloween, when the department store declares bankruptcy. Meanwhile, Finn's lost his way as a guide dog after flunking his test for being too friendly and easily distracted. Sadly, only one of them can earn unemployment, so Maureen's facing a winter of discontent in Boston--when she realizes she can't afford her apartment.

Salvation comes when she receives a mysterious inheritance: an inn in Haven, Florida. A quaint, scenic town on the Gulf of Mexico hidden away from the theme parks, Maureen believes it's a good place to make a fresh start with a new business venture. But she gets more than she bargained for when she finds a dead body on her property--and meets some of the inn's everlasting tenants in the form of ghosts who offer their otherworldly talents in order to help her solve the mystery...

My Review: If you are looking for a fun Halloween cozy mystery then this is a great choice! I am a sucker for the inherited inn storyline. I'm not sure why but I find that to be really interesting. Overall this was a really fun read. I loved the characters, especially Finn the dog, and some of the ghosts. I really enjoyed the paranormal aspect to this one. I also enjoyed the setting and the plot. Though I thought it was pretty easy to figure out who had done it, their motive was harder to figure out. Overall I really enjoyed this one.
