The Ghost and the Dead Deb by Alice Kimberly

I just finished the second book in Alice Kimberly's Haunted Bookstore series, The Ghost and the Dead Deb. I rate it a 7.
"Don't haunt the customers..." This was the only rule bookshop owner and widow Penelope Thornton-McClure had given her resident ghost, hard-boiled PI Jack Shephard. But when the hot young author Angel Stark arrives at the store to promote her latest, a true crime novel, Jack can hardly contain himself. After all, this is his specialty!
Angel's book is an unsolved mystery about a debutante found strangled to death. And it's filled with juicy details that point a finger at a number of people in the deb's high society circle. But when the author winds up dead too - in precisely the same way - Pen is fast on the case...which means Jack is too. After all, a ghost detective never rests in peace.
