Book Review and Giveaway! - Ghost Gone Wild: A Bailey Ruth Ghost Mystery by Carolyn Hart

About The Book:

Carolyn Hart’s “irresistible cozy sleuth”* is back—good-hearted ghost Bailey Ruth Raeburn just can’t say no to an earthly rescue, even when maybe she should.

Bailey Ruth loves to return to earth as an emissary from Heaven’s Department of Good Intentions. Problem is, she’s a bit of a loose cannon as far as ghosts go—forgetting to remain invisible, alarming earthly creatures—so she’s far from the top of department head Wiggins’s go-to list for assignments.

That’s why she’s surprised when the Heaven-sent Rescue Express drops her off at a frame house on the outskirts of her old hometown, Adelaide, Oklahoma, where a young man is playing the drums. What kind of rescuing does he need—drum lessons? But when a window cracks and a rifle barrel is thrust inside, only Bailey Ruth’s hasty intervention saves Nick Magruder from taking a bullet. When she materializes to reassure him, she finds she can’t go back to vanishing. What gives?
It turns out she’s been tricked by Nick’s late aunt—Delilah Delahunt Duvall—to come to the young man’s rescue, which means she isn’t back on earth in service of the department. Wiggins has no idea where she is—and now she may be trapped in Adelaide forever. Unless she can help Aunt Dee snare the person who wants her nephew dead….

My Thoughts:

"Ghost Gone Wild" is the fourth book from author Carolyn Hart which features the sassy and classy ghost, Bailey Ruth Raeburn and follows her adventures as she returns to Earth from Heaven to help out the folks in Adelaide, Oklahoma.

I love this series, and I love the character of Bailey Ruth.  She is a smart gal with a lot of fashion sense and charm, but she is also very protective of the folks from her old hometown and tries to do her best to help them out when trouble comes calling.

In this story, Bailey Ruth is duped by a fellow ghost, Delilah Delahunt Duvall, who just wants to keep her beloved nephew out of trouble!  Between the two ghostly gals, they find adventure and mayhem wherever they go! But they manage to get a lot done for a couple of other-worldly ladies.  I would love to see Delilah come back for more "appearances" in future Bailey Ruth stories!

This is a fun story that fans of cozy mysteries will just adore!  I always look forward to a new book from Carolyn Hart - she never disappoints!
