It is a Spooktacular time for Jolie and Ava as they have their hands’ full catering Leavensport’s annual Halloween Pumpkin Bash. When Ava convinces Jolie to get their fortunes told by a visiting psychic, they receive an ominous prediction.

“Masks–literal and figurative, chaos, deceit, betrayal, death. The cards have spoken.”

Madame Esme Emerald’s fortunes are looking more like premonitions of doom. It seems that someone in Leavensport received a reading that did not sit well because Madame Emerald is found dead, and it looks like her crystal ball is the murder weapon—or is something more supernatural going on?

Bounty-Full Investigative Services is on the case, or is it more of a paranormal manifestation? This could be a first for the girls as they take on the underworld’s spirits.

Welcome to Leavensport, OH, where DEATH takes a DELICIOUS turn!

Well this novella certainly got me in the mood for Halloween! I have loved this series from the get go, watching the banter between Jolie and Ava as they work together to solve another mystery in their little town of Leavensport, but this book was not the usual in that respect and I actually missed all those things.

Jolie gets into a car accident and from here the story takes a weird turn – she is essentially between worlds, in a coma in the hospital whilst her ‘spirit’ is having an out of body experience that sees her find out more about her ancestors and go on the hunt for a goblet that was stolen from her great gran, before she makes her way back to her body.

There was lots of spooky goings on in the spirit world, whilst everyone in the real world was eager to get Jolie back and awake before the twins were born as they were due any day!

Not the usual read from the series but I did enjoy it all the same, I look forward to the next book being ‘back to normal’ though…..
