LET'S GET COZY! THE BLACKWOODS FARM ENQUIRY: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

 
THE BLACKWOODS FARM ENQUIRY
An Ivy Beasley Mystery
BY ANN PURSER

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Retiree Ivy Beasley, a college student? Interested in penning her memoirs, Ivy decides to take a creative writing course. But it’s hard to find time to put pen to paper when this current chapter is so full of lies, jealousy and murder...

Rumors are flying around the village of Barrington about Mrs. Winchen Blatch, a reclusive widow living alone in her old farmhouse. In the past few weeks, the widow claims she has been tormented by ghostly visitations, so she hires Ivy and her fellow investigators at Enquire Within to get to the bottom of the mystery. Ivy’s new classes are very close to the widow’s farmhouse, perfect for combining studying and snooping...

With each new clue—a dark chamber, a smoking cigar and an amorous lodger—it becomes harder to separate fact from fiction. And when the ghost is revealed to be flesh and blood, the lonely widow may be in more trouble than Ivy and her team can handle...

The "ghost", in the story, seems intriguing. Would be a great read.

I think I'd rather have a ghost than the flesh & blood kind of frequent visitor. Sounds interesting.
