Darcy Sweet would like to think that she is just an ordinary woman, happy in her life running the Sweet Read bookstore. But she isn't ordinary. She has a connection to the other side that seems to draw her into mysterious situations more often than not. Add to the mix the antics of a rather naughty, slightly psychic cat and the eccentric ghost of her great-aunt Millie, and you have a recipe for anything but the ordinary.
When Darcy's neighbor is murdered she is drawn into the mystery against her will when she finds the body. She tries to leave the investigation to the police, one of which is her sister, but an overheard conversation and a small nudge from the other side has her investigating the murder. The stakes are raised when the murderer strikes again. Who was killing the people in her life?
Things are complicated even more by her building attraction to her sister's new cop partner, who makes it clear he does not appreciate Darcy's interference in the investigation. Sparks fly between the two of them as they get further into the mystery surrounding the deaths.
With a town full of suspects how will Darcy work out who the murderer is? None of the pieces to the puzzle fit. Things become more complicated and dangerous as Darcy's own life is threatened. Will she survive to see justice served?

Death Comes to Town
Interesting light mystery. Easy to read. Keeps you interested without being boring. The main characters Darcy and Smudge (the cat) are believable and keep your interest throughout. The end of the book is from the cat’s prospective and something different. If you are looking for an easy entertaining read this is it. I will read more from this author.
Great "Light" Read
This book is the perfect book to read during lunch breaks. The story moves very quickly in a short amount of time. No boring parts. It was a great mystery. My only qualm was the ending seemed rushed.
Great read, did not expect to like it
Really enjoyed this book. Had a hard time putting it down. Can't wait to read the next one.
