Bailey Burke has had a rough six months—it’s not easy thinking your romantic overtures toward your best friend caused him to kill himself. Except that’s exactly what happened. Ryan is very much dead, having shot himself with his own police-issued gun. Guilt and grief shouldn’t cause hallucinations though, but six months after Ryan went into the ground, Bailey is freaking out and swearing his ghost is standing in her kitchen. 

Which he is… Ryan claims he didn’t commit suicide, but was murdered, and he needs Bailey to help him find his killer so he can earn his ticket out of purgatory. Ryan’s counting on a stairway to heaven, as opposed to wings, since that might be a little unmanly for a cop, even a dead one. 

An expert in home design, with her own staging business, Bailey can tell you where to place a couch to improve flow and comfort, but solving a crime? Not her area of expertise. But with help from Ryan’s former partner, Marner, she is unraveling the mystery of what happened to Ryan that day… and unwittingly putting herself in grave danger.

  • Good book

    I read some mysteries, but this one was good. We have always felt like we had a ghost in our house, but I never saw anything just odd unexplained sounds.

    To capture my attention, a book must first be well written. I enjoy a cozy mystery. Love a touch of romance. A flicker of the supernatural is intriguing. This book has it all.

    Another deeply uninteresting female lead. Is there some reason that a reader would be interested in a neurotic, self absorbed coward of a woman? This story is uninspired and cliche heaven. It has no redeeming value. Hope no young females read it and decide to emulate this unthinking, blundering woman who is incapable of thinking and acts on juvenile emotions. Not at all similar to Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum. No laughs in Gone with the Ghost, just s big yawn.
  • Cute story

    Enjoyed reading this book. However, it had several adult situation and references in it. Not recommend it for anyone under 15 years old.

    This is a really good book. A mystery with a touch of ghosts. That’s a great combination! The book is a little low to take off but when it does..Obviously, you have to see what happens next. A good afternoon read.
