Mystery at Maplemead Castle by Kitty French

 


Release Date: 03.17.2017



Synopsis:

Welcome to Chapelwick, a leafy English town in the hills of Shropshire, where chocolate pecan cookies come with a helping of sabotage.

Maplemead Castle is crawling with ghosts, and the new owners need them gone. When Melody Bittersweet and the Girls’ Ghostbusting Agency arrive on scene, they quickly identify the troublemakers swinging from the chandeliers… literally.

A century ago, stunning trapeze artist Britannia Lovell plunged to her death, and has done every night since. But did she really just fall, or was there something more to her demise?

Forced to work with Leo Dark, her scoundrel ex, and infuriating, irresistible reporter Fletcher Gunn, Melody’s investigative powers are under strain (i.e. lost in a pink mist of lust and confusion). She needs her team on top form, but best friend Marina’s cake pipeline goes AWOL, assistant Artie’s distracted by a giant sausage roll, and the pug is scared witless by a lion.

Somewhere, hidden in the castle, is a heart-breaking secret, but what will it take to find it? And is there a chance it could set Britannia free, or is she doomed to repeat her last fateful act forever?



Review:

I have had Mystery at Maplemead Castle on my reader for a long long time and I've decided to read it on Halloween...what's better than to read a cozy mystery novel on that night?? I tell you, NOTHING!!

I had a good time reading about Melody Bittersweet and her Ghostbusting agency on the previous book in the series, but this one was even better.

The Bittersweet ladies has a gift, they can see and talk to ghosts.
Melody chose to help people to get rid of ghosts that haunt their places.
In this story she has to deal with a group of ghosts, three circus performers and a lion, that haunt Maplemead Castle, his ex boyfriend, Leo Dark, and the infuriatingly gorgeous reporter, Fletcher Gunn.

I've enjoyed and appreciated Kitty French writing and humour, she made me ignore everything else while reading her story. I really wish she will give us more ghostbusting adventure in the future.
