Description
Carolyn Hart's "irresistible cozy sleuth"* is back--good-hearted ghost Bailey Ruth Raeburn just can't say no to an earthly rescue, even when maybe she should...
Bailey Ruth loves to return to earth as an emissary from Heaven's Department of Good Intentions. Problem is, she's a bit of a loose cannon as far as ghosts go--forgetting to remain invisible, alarming earthly creatures--so she's far from the top of department head Wiggins's go-to list for assignments.
That's why she's surprised when the Heaven-sent Rescue Express drops her off at a frame house on the outskirts of her old hometown, Adelaide, Oklahoma, where a young man is playing the drums. What kind of rescuing does he need--drum lessons? But when a window cracks and a rifle barrel is thrust inside, only Bailey Ruth's hasty intervention saves Nick Magruder from taking a bullet. When she materializes to reassure him, she finds she can't go back to vanishing. What gives?
It turns out she's been tricked by Nick's late aunt--Delilah Delahunt Duvall--to come to the young man's rescue, which means she isn't back on earth in service of the department. Wiggins has no idea where she is--and now she may be trapped in Adelaide forever. Unless she can help Aunt Dee snare the person who wants her nephew dead...
