When Bailey Ruth Raeburn passed over into the great beyond, she was delighted to discover her sleuthing days would last an eternity. Joining Heaven's Department of Good Intentions, she uses her unique advantages as a ghost—sometimes you see her, sometimes you don't—to help those in need and ensure the wicked get their just deserts. 

However, on this latest mission, Bailey Ruth finds it more difficult than ever to keep up with her boss Wiggins's rules for good spirit deportment. Not only is the woman she is supposed to save determined to thwart Bailey Ruth's good intentions at every turn, she just so happens to be one of Bailey Ruth's oldest enemies. Not that that should matter to one of Heaven's best and brightest emissaries, but still, there is only so much a person can put up with—living or dead. 

But solving Bailey Ruth's toughest case yet means managing a recalcitrant charge, a fraudulent medium, a mother's heartbreak, old passions and new, and a telltale rawhide dog bone. Heaven help her!

    " A ghost/angel is sent back to earth to help people. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bobbie O'keefe | 2/6/2014

    " If I were also a ghost, Bailey Ruth Raeburn, 'emissary from Heaven's Department of Good Intentions' is the kind of ghost I'd like to pal around with. She's irrepressible, impulsive, tenacious and determined. She's also funny. I thoroughly enjoy how Bailey Ruth gets herself into one predicament after another and somehow works herself out. She's even vain--a vain ghost? This is the third installment in Bailey Ruth's escapades and I hope to see more. Light-hearted and fun reads, every one. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Crystal Wilkerson | 1/28/2014

    " This was a very hard read for me. Maybe because my library didn't have books 1&2? I didn't know I was jumping into book 3. I just couldn't get into the book. Felt like their was a lot of writing about nothing. Also I didn't need all the updates on her change of clothing. Just was not at all what I thought I would be reading about. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura Salas | 1/23/2014

    " Didn't finish it. Just really don't like this Bailey Ruth main character. She has nothing to lose, so there's no tension. And I don't care enough about the earthly characters to get invested in them. Don't bother with more of this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda Rock | 1/14/2014

    " Great book, love Bailey Ruth Raeburn character. Would read the books in order as not to feel lost. Carolyn Hart's other books are worth trying! Easy to read, follow, & lots of surprises. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 1/5/2014

    " this was a cute story. one of the issues of the who-done-it, was that the clues were so vague that no one would ever figure it out. why the main character/ghost was able to was sort of unrealistic. but it's a story, and it's a ghost, so... it was an easy read. light and fun. i'll probably read another of her books, but only if i want an easy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheri | 12/24/2013

    " This is a fun read. I can't help but love the characters. And the mystery lasts just long enough. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deborah | 12/14/2013

    " One of three series by this author. Premise is a ghost comes from heaven as an emissary to help those on earth. Series is cute and an easy quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sierra crosby | 10/7/2013

    " This series is so fun. Just a good light fun read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carole Anderson | 2/28/2013

    " I just love this author and this character Bailey Ruth. I never did guess the murderer, but had lots of laughs along the way. Just a delightful read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kit | 6/27/2012

    " This is the second book in this series that I've listened to featuring ghostly sleuth Bailey Ruth Raeburn. She's sent back to her home town to solve mysteries and help people. They're entertaining for audio books, not worth taking the trouble to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kitty Tomlinson | 10/1/2011

    " Bailey Ruth, an emissary from heaven is sent to protect Kay Clark from being murdered. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 9/29/2011

    " This was light and fun. Not as intense as the other 2 books in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl Karkoff | 9/18/2011

    " Another cute book about a ghost who doesn't exactly follow the rules for earthly visits. This time she is sent back to help a person she didn't exactly like when she was alive. Easy light reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 6/30/2011

    " I like these Bailey Ruth stories. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 4/24/2011

    " Bailey Ruth is certainly no Aunt Dimity, and I got the message that she was a green-eyed red-head after the first 250 mentions. Very little narrative tension, but overall it was a perfectly fine little mystery. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Julie | 3/5/2011

    " I'm counting this as read even though I could not finish it. Perhaps there should be a box for "Date I gave up on this book." Following the philosophy that life is too short for bad books, I gave this one a toss without getting very far into it, and even that took me almost three weeks. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teresa | 3/3/2011

    " Bailey Ruth is a ghost who solves mysteries and loves clothes. I can't decide if she is the patron saint of detectives or fashion designers. She is a lot of fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deborah | 2/26/2011

    " One of three series by this author. Premise is a ghost comes from heaven as an emissary to help those on earth. Series is cute and an easy quick read. "
