With the arrival of six senior reading group members at the Merry Ghost Inn, the long-awaited grand opening week has finally begun for Melanie West and her grandmother Liza. All is well with the Oregon coast-side B&B until Melanie’s dog, Max, finds the dead body of one of their guests.

Everyone at the inn immediately falls under suspicion, including the innkeepers themselves. Melanie and Liza are not sure who they can trust, and the idea of cohabitating with a murderer is enough to send chills down anyone’s spine. To make matters worse, the curmudgeonly town detective wants them to steer clear of the investigation, but doesn’t seem too inspired to solve the case in a timely fashion himself. To clear their own names and to avoid the blight on the inn’s reputation that yet another dead body will bring, Melanie and Liza dive headlong into the murder investigation.

With a little help from their chuckling ghost, Melanie and Liza dodge the detective, tip-toe around their suspicious guests, and still serve up delicious bed-and-breakfast meals on time in Kate Kingsbury’s delightful second Merry Ghost Inn mystery, Doom with a View.

    " Doom With A View by Kate Kingsbury is the second in the Merry Ghost Inn series and was a very enjoyable read. I love visiting the inn set on the Oregon coast and would love to actually go visit if it were a real B & B. . Ms. Kingsbury's descriptive writing has built a world that makes me want to visit Sully's Landing and meet the other citizens that live there. Melanie and her grandmother, Liza, have finally opened the inn. Ms. Kingsbury has developed these characters well and it was great to get to know them better in this book. Their first group is a senior’s book club and on the first night one of their members is pushed from a balcony. Inspector "Grumpy" Dutton (as Liza calls him) is back to solve the case. The plot was smoothly written and quickly paced with enough twists and turns to keep you wanting to know what’s going to happen next. There is also a mystery regarding Melanie's mother who disappeared when Melanie was a child that adds a separate bit of intrigue and keep you hoping to learn more about with each additional book in the series. All in all a great 2nd book, looking forward to book 3! "
