I really liked this book. What could be better than a mystery set in a bookshop with a ghost to help solve it? I liked the heroine once she started standing up for herself, and while some of the 40's slang was a bit over the top at first, I found myself getting into it. As a native New Englander, I loved the descriptions of summer and autumn and small town life, and I really got a kick out of the heroine explaining that while she's telling us Fiona said "parking the car", she really said "pahkin the cah"! It was a book I could here in my head, and they all spoke like me! A quick entertaining read. I'll be looking for others by this author.
