9780727878533: Walking with Ghosts (Honey Driver Mysteries)

A Honey Driver Mystery - When hotel owner and police liaison officer Honey Driver accompanies a friend on a ghost walk, the ghosts fail to appear – but one of the walkers is later found hanged. The supernatural has nothing to do with the murder, but it is connected to the past: the sinking of the Titanic and the international demand for old artefacts. But does Honey have a ghost of a chance of solving her latest case?

About the Author:

Jean G. Goodhind is a popular writer of women's fiction, romance and comedy. For many years she owned and ran a haunted guest house on the outskirts of Bath and was one of the founding members of the Bath Hotel and Restaurant Association. Her experiences inspired the international bestselling Honey Driver series. She has won a BBC Radio award for scriptwriting. She also writes women's fiction as Lizzie Lane and writes a regular column for the Western Daily Press.

Review:

"It's a dark and stormy night for a ghost walk. During the ghost walk on which Bath hotelier Honey Driver accompanies her hotel guest Mary Jane, they meet an American calling herself Lady Templeton-Jones who's found strangled shortly after handing her pocketbook over to Honey and requesting a room in her hotel. As the hotel association's liaison with the police, Honey (A Taste to Die For, 2008, etc.) enjoys a more than professional relationship with sexy cop Steve Doherty. Not surprisingly, she quickly gets involved in the murder. The suspects are legion. There's the tour member involved in an Internet scheme to sell British titles, whose wife's sudden death makes it clear that he's been romancing the tour guide. There's the wealthy Bath resident who owns both the shop where the body was found and also a company that's privy to sensitive information from documents it's supposed to be shredding. Then there's Lady Templeton-Jones's smarmy cousin. It's up to Honey and Steve to weed out the nonstarters and nail the killer before the body count rises out of control. Honey's third is just the thing for cozy-loving Anglophiles" --Kirkus Reviews, 15th October 2008

Honey Driver, owner of the Green River Hotel in Bath, England, and a police liaison officer, takes a ghost walk with a friend. The spirits don't materialize, but one of the walkers is murdered, and Honey is thrust into the thick of the investigation. At the same time, Honey's mother, who has lost her shop, seeks for a new location perhaps closer to Honey's hotel, and Lindsay, Honey's daughter, has a new boyfriend she is keeping secret. Goodhind's third series title (after Something in the Blood and A Taste To Die For) will appeal to fans who enjoy British cozies with engaging characters in the tradition of Veronica Healy and Dorothy Cannell. --Library Journal, 1st November 2008
