The Ghostly Grounds: Murder and Breakfast is the debut novel in a charming new cozy mystery series by best-selling author Sophie Love, author of The Inn at Sunset Harbor series, a number one best seller with over 200 five-star reviews.
Marie Fortune, 39, a successful dog groomer in Boston, has had enough of catering to the wealthy and their pampered dogs. Realizing it is time to make a change, she quits and heads to a small coastal town in Maine, where she remembers fond summers as a kid.
Marie expects to go for a brief getaway - and is shocked to learn that her great-aunt left her an inheritance: a dilapidated, historic house high up on a hill overlooking the harbor. Marie feels an instant connection. Although the locals tell her it would be folly, Marie decides to renovate and give it a second life as a B&B.
But there is one thing she couldn’t have planned for: The house is haunted.
Two things, actually: Her great-aunt also left her a dog - and he is far from a typical dog.
When an unexpected death occurs soon thereafter, solving the crime will be more than just a matter of curiosity for Marie - her very future may depend on it.
An engrossing cozy, packed with mystery, love, hauntings, travel, pets and food - anchored around a small town and a B&B in need of renovation that will capture your heart - The Ghostly Grounds is a cozy that will keep you listening to (and laughing out loud) late into the night.
Books two and three in the series - Death and Brunch and Malice and Lunch - are now also available!
