Ghost in the Polka Dot Bikini: A Ghost of Granny Apples Mystery

Sue Anne Jaffarian, Midnight Ink (, $14.95 trade paper (312p) ISBN 978-0-7387-1382-3
While enjoying a Thanksgiving getaway with boyfriend Phil Bowers on Catalina Island, ghost whisperer Emma Whitecastle encounters a bikini-clad ghost in Jaffarian's spirited second Ghost of Granny Apples mystery (after 2009's Ghost à la Mode). Tessa North, a Hollywood starlet who died on Catalina soon after Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in Los Angeles in 1968, claims to be waiting for the return of "Curtis" before she can pass on to the other side. Emma and Granny Apples (aka Ish Reynolds), Emma's ghost great-great-great-grandmother, set out to learn more about Curtis and the circumstances of Tessa's death. Meanwhile, Emma's probe into the Tessa haunting for her paranormal TV show, The Whitecastle Report, leads to a stabbing murder and the revelation of secrets of Emma's former father-in-law, director and producer George Whitecastle. Fans of paranormal cozies will find a lot to like. (Feb.)
