This is the second book in this little magical mystery series, and it wasn't nearly as good as the first one. I just couldn't seem to focus on it. I hate books where someone the main character barely knows dies, and the character feels the need to act like Sherlock Holmes and solve the mystery. And it's even worse when you figure out who did it with 50 or so pages left in the book. I like the ones where I'm surprised. So, needless to say, I wasn't impressed and don't recommend it. The only plus to it was the all the talk about spirits and ghosts freaked me out a little, but that's not very hard to do.
