Publisher Description

“The perfect romance or beach read, with a difference: its enthusiasm and beautiful descriptions offer an unexpected attention to the complexity of not just evolving love, but evolving psyches. It's a delightful recommendation for romance readers looking for a touch more complexity from their romance reads.”

--Midwest Book Review (For Now and Forever)

THE GHOSTLY GROUNDS: MALICE AND LUNCH is Book #3 in a charming new cozy mystery series by bestselling author Sophie Love, author of The Inn at Sunset Harbor series, a #1 Bestseller with over 200 five-star reviews!

Marie Fortune, 39, a successful dog groomer in Boston, leaves the stressful life behind and heads to a small town in coastal Maine to create a new life. She remains intent on renovating the old, historic house her great-aunt left her and giving it a new life as a B&B. Yet there was one thing she couldn’t plan for: the house is haunted. Two things, actually: her great-aunt also left her a dog—and he is far from a typical dog.

When Marie, her reputation for ghost-cleansing growing, is summoned to exorcise an old manor house, she finds more than she bargained for: an unexpected death occurs.

Worse, her trusted dog gets so sick, he is sent to the vet indefinitely.

Marie, on her own, must solve the murder and expel the ghosts all by herself.

Is she up to the task?

A page-turning cozy, packed with mystery, love, hauntings, travel, pets and food—anchored around a small town and a B&B in need of renovation that will capture your heart—THE GHOSTLY GROUNDS: MALICE AND LUNCH is an un-putdownable cozy that will keep you turning pages (and laughing out loud) late into the night.

Books #4-#5 are also available!

“The romance is there, but not overdosed. Kudos to the author for this amazing start of a series that promises to be very entertaining.”

Ghostly Craziness!

Marie has the worst luck of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Another death, where she stumble into the body, happened again. This time during an investigation. Was it the ghost that did it? The police make Marie their number one suspect, again, but know she didn’t do it. Plus Boo is sick and fake ratings are showing up on her website for the inn.
This is a great series. I love the characters, Posey is funny, and Marie and Boo are incredible. I like the new addition of Rebeka. I think she’s going to be a great character. Brendan needs to figure out what’s important to him. Yeah, I was getting frustrated with him. I’m liking Robbie more and more for a romantic storyline with Marie. Can’t wait for the next one!

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
