Bailey Ruth Raeburn has always been great at solving mysteries. Why should a little thing like her death change anything? In fact, being dead gives her more of an opportunity to be on top of events. Bailey Ruth is delighted that her unique position as a ghost makes it possible for her to lend a helping hand, sometimes seen and sometimes not. And if anybody needs a little help, it’s Kathleen, the pastor’s wife. There’s a dead man on her porch, and once the body is discovered, the pastor is sure to become a suspect.

Uncharitable people might call it meddling, but Bailey Ruth knows Kathleen needs her help! As a member of Heaven’s Department of Good Intentions, Bailey Ruth goes back to earth to extricate Kathleen from a dire situation. If Bailey Ruth has to bend a few rules to help Kathleen save her family, Wiggins, her fussbudget supervisor, will make sure it all turns out right in the end.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Hart’s version of heaven is a hoot…Bailey Ruth and Wiggins will delight readers who prefer their mysteries light and seasoned with wit and the supernatural.”

    Boston Globe

  • “Bailey Ruth is a lively, original heroine and a pleasure to read. Hart gets to design heaven and indulges herself in celestial fantasies. The Oklahoma City author is a master at constructing a mystery. She builds this one with finesse, suspense and humor.”

    Oklahoma City Oklahoman

  • “Hart blends an enjoyable fantasy with realistic characters and an engrossing plot that’s sure to charm even ardent materialists.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “This could be Hart’s best series yet. The most appealing attribute of her masterful, self-assured writing style is her wry humor—imagine Bailey, who has been dead for decades, learning about cell phones and computers for the first time.”

    Booklist (starred review)

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracie | 2/20/2014

    " Hoping to join the Department of Good Intentions, the ghost of Bailey Ruth Raeburn returns to her Oklahoma hometown to help the pastor's wife solve a pre-Halloween murder mystery. A cozy, humorous whodonit with a paranormal twist. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carri Keaton | 2/19/2014

    " Nice, light read. Bailey Ruth is very engaging, not knowing about modern technology. Worth a read if you need something light. Not easy to determine "who-done-it". "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marie | 2/19/2014

    " I have been a fan of Carolyn Hart's Death on Demand series (if I do grow tired of hearing how hot Max is...). I couldn't take another minute of this book after chapter four. As soon as she'd recall that she shouldn't do something, she'd immediately do it. Then admonish herself for doing it. It was like having a 2-year old as the protagonist. It is hopelessly twee and dull. Skip it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Betty | 2/16/2014

    " This is a fun, easy read if you have nothing else at hand. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dalia Woodliff | 2/9/2014

    " Apparently not as accepted as Carolyn's "Death on Demand Series", I love Bailey Ruth and look forward to the next books. Extremely humorous as she works her mischief from the sky. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Connie | 1/23/2014

    " First in the series. This is very cute and very funny. Wiggins is the person in charge of Bailey and this is her first mission to help someone. It is funny and well written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathleen | 1/23/2014

    " I am not really as shallow as my choice of books might indicate. I know I keep alluding this to ongoing apology, but...This is the first book in a series about a ghost sent from heaven on a mission to resolve a dilemma (murder) in her old home town. The plot is interesting, but some of the characters, less so. The premise of the ghost on a mission and the description of life in heaven is pure escapism but comforting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathleen Meacham | 1/19/2014

    " Funny and Fun -- the 1st in the series "

    " Ultimate TSTL heroine except she's already dead. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Angela | 12/27/2013

    " Very much a fluff mystery---doubt I'll pick up the next in the series when it comes out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 12/17/2013

    " ok might try the next one "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miriam | 11/10/2013

    " I enjoy these books. The silly quirks of the ghost make me laugh and I just enjoy her personality. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 10/10/2013

    " This was an unlikely book for me to read but I quite enjoyed it. It was quite amusing. I may even read the next book in the series. The audio version was good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 9/28/2013

    " Not your usual Carolyn Hart mystery... once you get use to the fact that Bailey Ruth's a ghost, she actually grows on you. Enjoy! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 8/12/2013

    " Meh. I enjoy her Death on Demand or Henrie O books much better. I will try the next one in the series to give it a chance though. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tribefan | 4/9/2012

    " Couldn't get into this one, gave up after 50 pages... "

    " This was a fun cozy! I enjoyed it and will look for others in this series. The main character is a ghost from heaven who has come to help a relative accused of murder. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine US | 1/11/2011

    " I enjoyed it, but I don't intend to read more in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liz | 7/21/2010

    " Amusing series. I've read 1-3 so far of the Bailey Ruth books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mendy | 2/14/2010

    " I loved this one. It's so original and fresh. It is a little more Christian in nature but I didn't mind at all. Bailey Ruth is funny, charming, and has a ton of spunk. I can't wait for the next book in this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn | 1/21/2010

    " This was really a fun and charming little read. It had all the 'who-done-it' appeal of a great mystery but it wasn't scary at all which works out better for me since I usually read at night with my headlamp on while the rest of the world is sleeping. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle | 12/30/2009

    " Meh. I didn't like it - or dislike it. I doubt I'll read another in the series. Maybe another by the author would be ok. Maybe. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniele | 11/5/2009

    " As is the case with all of the Carolyn Hart books, this is a quick, easy read. I enjoyed Baily Ruth and the fact that she is a ghost. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vicki | 8/19/2009

    " I'm a big fan of Carolyn Hart and she did not disappoint me with this book. I hope there are more in the series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julaine | 11/12/2008
