THE GHOST AND THE FEMME FATALE - Alice Kimberly

Penelope Thornton-McClure is part owner of Buy The Book Mystery Bookshop in her little hometown of Quindicott, Rhode Island and is looking forward to all of the book signings that will be going on during the week of the film festival being held to celebrate the opening of the town's renovated retro movie theater. Film noir B movie screen actress, Hedda Geist, will be the headliner and possibly the main murder victim.
Pen is urged to take on the case by her friends, since she and they all know that the police in the town are fairly lucky to be called bumbling and wouldn't know a clue if it caught fire under their butts.
Pen is aided by Jack Shepherd, spectral PI from the 40's supreme.
There are dark secrets, murder, thievery....all good stuff for a cozy mystery lover to enjoy.
I love reading cozy mysteries, especially paranormal type cozies. Combines a lot that I enjoy in a book. Cozies are teensy sorbets between (or during) the heavier textured paranormals or suspense or thrillers I read.
Four ghostly PI beans.....
