If Catfish Had Nine Lives Grams Country Cooking School Mystery #4Al Pony Express rider gallops into town with some unfinished business Broken Rope starts to seem like a cowboy ghost convention With trouble on both sides of this mortal coil it’s up to Betts to clear her brother put the spirits to rest and make sure the true killer doesn’t become the one who got awa Normally I don't like paranormal cozies too well but Shelton does a great job putting ghosts into this series and yet still making it feel normal It's not too cutsie And by using the ghosts Shelton can work in a lot of really interesting history In this particular book it's the Pony ExpressPlenty of other reviewers have already summarized the plot so I won't bother Let me just point out that this book is a little different from the usual pattern in that Betts the protagonist is not directly investigating the murder In fact the murder takes a back seat to the problems presented by the several ghosts in the book and also by the fact that her brother Teddy has been badly beaten and Betts wants to find out who did itThis is a great tale but I will say that I recommend new readers to start with the beginning of the series as they might be confused just dropping in at this pointAnd Jerome? Well like most cozy protagonists Betts is in a love triangle But one of her guys is the cowboy ghost Jerome and Shelton has kindly brought this sexy spirit back for this volume It's really a shame that Jerome is obviously not the guy Betts will choose in the end as he's much interesting than her cop boyfriendShelton is one of my favorite cozy writers and this is yet another win for her
