Publisher's description

How do you rest in peace when you’re stuck between two worlds?

Daisy Montgomery lived her best life. She was a good person, treated people well, was kind to animals, and didn’t have any enemies. Or so she thought.

Then one night she was attacked by a force so powerful that it separated her body from her soul, and she found herself stuck somewhere between life and death. Unfortunately for Daisy being a spirit had its limitations, and it seemed unlike every other ghost she’d ever read about, she lacked the ability to walk through walls.

Luckily her little dog Albie led her to super sexy Charlie O’Sullivan, a man who can not only see her spirit and open doors for her, but he made her question everything she thought she knew about her life.

Was her fiancé really her soul mate who loved her more than her money?

Did her late father’s inheritance put a target on her back?

Did he bequeath her more than his money?

And what is the dark force that is shadowing her every move?

When her attacker kills again, she must use her newfound knowledge to discover who they are before her loved one's lives are irreversibly and tragically changed forever. With the help of Charlie and his merry band of spirit helpers, she followed the clues, leading her to a discovery that put her in a race against a murderer.

But can she solve the crime before the killer destroys everything she ever loved? Will she walk to the light and rest in peace? Or will she be stuck forever between the two worlds?

The secrets of Dandelion Ponds are so dangerous and treacherous that not even the dead can save them!

In High Spirits is the first in a brand new cozy paranormal mystery series

My review

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

There is a deep melancholy to this story with characters you will love and root for all the way. Daisy and Charley and his mom and the spirit guides. The mystery is good, but the relationships are better.

I'm not sure yet how I feel about the "big reveal" toward the end. It is definitely a major setup for future books in the series. It felt a little... sudden, not entirely necessary? I really hope the future books iron out some of the wrinkles on that. I don't like to judge a series by the first book and the relationships and authentic and colorful characters in this book will definitely have me coming back to see where the future takes the corporeal and incorporeal residents of Dandelion Ponds.
