Ghost of a Chance by Yasmine Galenorn

This is #1 in her Chintz 'n' China series. She also has a couple paranormal fantasy series out that I plan on trying. And she has a light cozy mystery series under the name India Ink.
I enjoyed it and have already started #2 of the 5 in the series.

Emerald O'Brien, single mother of two, is the owner of the Chintz 'n China Tea Room where guests are served the perfect blend of tea and tarot reading. She never set out to be a detective, but once word gets out that she can communicate with the dead, there's no turning back...

It was definitely a ghost. There, at the foot of Emerald's bed. A pen hovered above a piece of paper and scrawled these alarming words: I was murdered by my husband but nobody knows. Help me. True, Emerald was considered the town witch, but she owned a teashop, not a detective agency. What did the spirit expect? But after another darker entity emerges, bent on destroying her world and her family along with it, Emerald's life takes a screeching detour onto a wild and dangerous road. As she careens into a web of deceit, lies, and secrets woven around her ghostly visitor, death strikes again. Now, along with her friends - an ex-supermodel and a cop - and her new love interest, Emerald must search for clues to put the killer behind bars - and this tortured soul to rest...

On another note, my computer is back up and running though I don't know for how long. The power supply tested out okay and after putting it back in the computer, it booted up fine. So now that it works after being off for a couple days, I'm wondering if the power supply overheated and I need a stronger one for everything it powers. It's obviously NOT the hard drive, which was my second guess. And that reminds me - BACKUP!!!! and do it often! :\
