Publisher's Summary

Norma is a modern-day nomad. Living out of her van and teardrop trailer, she revels in self-reliance, solitude, and reading in the glorious peace of nature. Jovial, wise, and scrupulously honest, she's become an uplifting presence in the little town of Quindicott, Rhode Island, where bookseller Pen is thankful to have her part-time help. But it's Norma's other job, working as a housekeeper at the Finch Inn, that gets her into terrible trouble. Norma is accused of stealing jewels from a guest's room: the legendary Valentino Teardrops, an antique necklace and earring set, inherited by a young socialite. Pen doesn't believe Norma is guilty of the crime—though the evidence is distressingly strong. And when the spirited Norma vanishes before her arrest, Pen turns to another spirit . . .

Jack Shepard, PI, may have been gunned down decades ago, but his memory hasn't been ghosted. Back in the 1940s, those same Valentino Teardrops starred in a bizarre case of betrayal and murder. From the look of things, history is about to repeat. Now Jack is back on the job, and Pen is eternally grateful.

I love this series

I can't get enough of this series. The characters are fun and entertaining and I love how Jack's cold case files play apart in the current mystery. I look forward to the next book.

Bring Back Caroline Schaffer as Narrator!!!

I love this series and was so excited to get a new episode! But…the narrator ruined my joy! I love the characters and they have become part of my family, but there was NOTHING that distinguished anyone from the other in this book. I often could not even follow the dialog because it was monotone from one person to the other. I do audio books to relax and I have an eye condition that makes readIng difficult, but I wish I had read this book instead of listening so the I could have simply imagined the characters as I have come to love them.

love this series, the changed narrator is a fail

the new narrator makes the relationship between Jack and Pen seem snipey and arguementative instead of the usual fond teamwork. very disappointing
