Ripley Van Raden’s life centers around the spooky. At every turn, Rip finds herself drawn into paranormal trouble. By day, she’s the head librarian in Devil’s Moon, Kentucky, and at night, she guides people on her ghostly tour of the haunted streets and buildings of their town.
Rip is planning a charity Halloween party at the library. Things aren’t going by the book though when a couple of spirits crash the party. Plus, a local shop owner is accused of murder and an antique box might hold the clue to solve the case. Adding another chapter to the story, a mystery man is following Rip, and soon she suspects he wants her dead.
The only way to solve the crime is to continue the nightly ghost tours around town. But if the mystery man finds Rip, the ghost tour might be the final chapter of her story.

(I’ve read all but two of the previous stories in this series. They were reviewed on a blog that no longer exists, and I doubt that I’ll recreate those reviews here now. The fact that I’ve just completed the 13th story in this series should tell you all you need to know about whether I think this series is worth the time or not. 🙂 )
There’s a killer in the picture . . .
Celeste Cabot has a flair for painting–and a touch of paranormal talent too. She’s just arrived to sell her artwork at a big craft fair in North Carolina, complete with rides, games, and deep-fried everything. But the sunny landscape takes on a darker hue when her Chihuahua, Van Gogh, leads her to the riverbank–and to a body that was definitely not part of her design.
With help from a handsome fellow artist, Celeste sets out to draw the brazen killer onto her canvas. She’ll need to balance the victim’s past, a suspected love triangle, and a long-ago accident–and also consult with a medium and a spirit–to try to paint a murderous fiend into a corner . . .
