From Amazon:

Talking to ghosts can be killer.

Castleberry, Georgia is a small Southern town with a ton of history, and that history includes a lot of ghosts. How do I know? Because I can see them.

And trust me, that’s not always a good thing.

As the city’s historical society manager, I spend a lot of time in old buildings, and old buildings are filled with dead people. Take the Baptist church on the outskirts of town. I’m in the process of certifying it as a historical building.

And not only is it full of ghosts, but…surprise!…there’s a body in the basement. And I’m the one who found it. Now I’ve got to pick through the history of a long ago fire and decipher the clues I’m getting from some very stubborn spirits, all while dodging someone – dead or alive – who wants me to mind my own business…And will do whatever’s necessary to keep me quiet.

I really like this series. It’s fun to read. The characters are awesome. The books are a bit short, but that can be a good thing. But this one. Oh. My. Goodness. This one had so many typos. The wrong word would be used, repeated words, or the word would be missing altogether. In my mind, I kept thinking this isn’t even self-published— (turns out it technically is as the author is the president of the publishing company listed.), so how can it have so many errors? It was a little off-putting, but I got through it. If you aren’t obsessed with grammar, it can be a nice, short, cozy mystery read.

I might just be coming back for Thelma and Del at this point. I’m giving this one 3 toads.
