Overview
E.J. has a surprise twentieth wedding anniversary present for Willis a weekend away in the Texas hills. She s found the perfect Bed and Breakfast the Bishop s Inn in the quaint town of Peaceful. Unfortunately, they ve barely arrived before the inn s troubled elderly owner, Carrie Marie Hutchins, confides in them about a harrowing event from her childhood involving her dead father . . . and his spirit, which won t go away . . . E.J. has little time to digest Carrie s tales of strange goings-on: screaming, the guests suitcases slashed, underwear hanging from a light fixture, before a further bizarre twist occurs: Humphrey Hammerschultz and Diamond Lovesy, self-proclaimed psychic detectives, suddenly turn up at Carrie s door. And when E.J. discovers a body, she determines to find out what s really going on in this not-so-peaceful town."

In Cooper’s lightweight 12th E.J. Pugh mystery (after 2013’s Gone in a Flash), the romance writer and unlicensed PI books a surprise weekend at a quaint B&B, in a small town in the Texas hill country, to celebrate the 20th wedding anniversary of her and her husband, Willis. On arrival, the B&B’s distraught owner confides in the couple that her father, who died during the D-day invasion, has returned from the dead. E.J. and Willis cheerily deal with the supposedly haunted house and a couple of murders, outguessing the local bumpkin police chief, who, sans Internet connection, seems trapped in the mid-20th century. Series fans may find comfort in the pleasant characterizations, as well as the descriptions of the B&B’s antiques and its sumptuous meals threatening E.J.’s recent weight loss. But newcomers may want to start by reading previous, more substantial entries. Agent: Vicky Bijur, Vicky Bijur Literary Agency. (Mar.)
