THE FIRST HAUNTED BOOKSHOP MYSTERY FROM NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR CLEO COYLE--WRITING AS ALICE KIMBERLY "Part cozy and part hard-boiled detective novel with traces of the supernatural, The Ghost and Mrs. McClure is just a lot of fun."--The Mystery Reader Young widow Penelope Thornton-McClure and her old Aunt Sadie are making ends meet by managing a mystery book shop--a quaint Rhode Island landmark rumored to be haunted.

In this cozy mystery, a young widow moves home to help her aunt run a haunted bookshop, there's a murder at an author event, and the fun begins. Jack Shepard, the 1940's (murdered) detective who haunts the bookshop, is quite the hottie! I listened to this book and his character was brought to life--not in a scary way. More Jack, please! ( )

I think Jack Shepard must be the world‘s sexiest ghost. A rough and tough ghost murdered in the 1940’s, he comes through to save the day and the bookstore. The writing was witty and fresh and I actually laughed out loud a few times.
This is one that you almost have to read straight through because you just keep wanting to read another chapter and then another chapter. Can’t wait to really get into this series. ( )

I read the first five books in the Haunted Bookshop series more than 10 years ago and fell in love with the characters. I was SO happy in 2018 when the author started adding new books again! Then the audio books popped up on Audible , so I decided to revisit the series from the start! I have the whole series in paperback on my keeper shelf, and now I can enjoy having them read to me! Woot!

The basics: Penelope McClure is recently widowed. She decides to start a new life, moving to Rhode Island to help her aunt run her bookshop. Just when things start looking up, a best-selling author drops dead in the middle of a book signing and Penelope discovers the bookshop is haunted by the ghost of a long-dead detective, Jack Shepard.

I love this series! I love ghost stories and cozy mysteries -- and this is a fun blend of both. The humor and a big dose of old time detective-speak make these stories entertaining. Penelope and Jack make a great crime fighting duo!

Narrated by Caroline Shaffer and Traber Burns, the audio book is just over 7 hours long. Shaffer and Burns do a great job of voice acting! Very entertaining listen!

So happy this series is included in Audible . I'm going to listen to the entire series! ( )

Enjoyable cozy mystery with some noir style detective work thrown in courtesy of the bookstore’s resident ghost, a hard boiled detective who was murdered at the bookstore decades earlier. First in the series. I plan to read others. ( )

Borrowing from the premise of the Ghost and Mrs. Muir, this is a combination of a widow starting out a new life and a ghost who inhabits her new space. In this case it is a bookshop.

Penelope Thornton-McClure, a young widow, has moved back to her hometown of Cranberry, Rhode Island. She has moved back to help her Aunt Sadie run her bookshop and to get herself and son out from under the thumb of her husband’s domineering family.

Life is a lot slower in Cranberry than Manhattan, but there is quite a bit going on. It all picks up when the guest author, Timothy Brennan, drops dead at the book signing event at the revamped bookstore. It gets even more interesting when the tie between Brennan and his main character, Jack Shield, is linked to the real life P.I. Jack Shephard. It seems that Brennan and Shephard knew each other years ago. Shephard was murdered back in the 1940s at the bookstore, and the murder has never been solved or his body found. Meanwhile, Brennan had found Shephard’s case files and was using them as base info for his Jack Shield series.

Another twist is that Jack Shephard is still in the bookstore. In ghost form, but he is still there and he and Penelope can communicate. Seems Pen had this ability when she was a child and it has reappeared again.

With Penelope as the person that can interact with live people and Jack to give her clues and his expertise on investigating, the two make a good team to find out the truth of Brennan’s death. Pen is a proper type of lady and Jack is a hard boiled P.I. and talks like it. This combination makes some fun reading.

Looking forward to find more books in this series! ( )
