Dead Man Talking
A Cozy Paranormal Mystery
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Welcome to Everlasting, Maine, where there’s no such thing as normal.
Meteorologist Zoe Parker put Everlasting in her rearview mirror as soon as she had her college degree in hand. But when Sapphire, her eccentric great-aunt, takes a tumble down the stairs in her lighthouse home, Zoe returns to the tiny fishing hamlet to look after her. Zoe has barely crossed the county line when strange things start happening with the weather, and she discovers Sapphire’s fall was no accident. Someone is searching the lighthouse but Sapphire has no idea what they’re looking for. Determined to ensure her aunt’s ongoing safety, Zoe promises to expose the intruders, even though it means staying in Everlasting and confronting the past she thought she’d put behind her.
Dane Stanton never expected to see Zoe standing in the middle of her aunt’s living room, and was even more unprepared for the flood of emotion he experiences when coming face to face with his old flame. Zoe is just as independent and determined as he remembered, and Dane knows she won’t rest until Sapphire can return to the lighthouse in peace, so he offers to help her sort things out.
Armed with old legends, Sapphire’s ten cats, and a talking ghost, Zoe has to reconcile her feelings for Dane and embrace her destiny before it’s too late.
Hope to revisit Everlasting!
An enjoyable fun read populated with quirky but believable characters you'll want to follow in future stories. The setting is intriguing, the premise interesting and the mystery well-constructed. Loved it!!!
Dead Man Talking
Love 'whodunits' and this story was no disappointment..
Always enjoy Jana Deleon books, always a good read!!
Ghost with no pants
I LOVED this book! Jana can always write a good tale. I laughed so hard I cried. If nothing else, read it for the cats. Plus the ghost with no pants. The characters are all so well written. It was bittersweet for it to end because I already miss the people and the magic. I hope we get another book from her set in Everlasting
