Fortune tellers and mediums have descended on the Oyster Cove Guesthouse, determined to finally solve the mystery of local seafarer Jedediah Biddeford’s murder 300 years ago. New owner Josie Waters has suddenly got bigger problems than burning the breakfasts: she’s up to her elbows in tarot cards and tea leaves…

When one of the mediums is found dead with an ominous note nearby, everything points to Jedediah’s ghost being the culprit. Suddenly, Josie finds that the fate of her guesthouse depends on not one murder but two, and she’s not going to rely on a crystal ball for answers. Despite the fact that cookbooks and candlesticks keep mysteriously falling off tables, Josie is sure there’s no such thing as ghosts. But guesthouse cats Nero and Marlowe know better…

Aided by her mom and eccentric family friend Millie, Josie sets out to prove the identity of the killer without summoning any spirits. Luckily Nero and Marlowe know the truth about ghosts, ghouls and things that go bump in the night and they are on the case! Can they make Josie realize she is scratching up the wrong tree before the killer strikes again?

From the bestselling author of the USA Today bestselling Mystic Notch series, purrfect for fans of Adele Abbott, H.Y. Hanna and anybody who loves to curl up with a page-turning cozy mystery.

"If you’re a cozy fan, then Leighann Dobbs is probably already on your radar. What I’m recommending is move her from your radar and into your reading shelf, because all of her mysteries are just so good!… We have likeable cat characters, and likeable clueless human characters as well!… There were multiple red herrings, and so many odd scenes that I really wasn’t sure who to trust by the end of it… a must read for cozy lovers… you won’t regret it!" Goodreads reviewer
