Series: Perfectly Proper Paranormal Museum Mystery #2

Paranormal museum owner Maddie Kosloski thinks she has the perfect paranormal exhibit for the harvest festival—a haunted grape press. But when she’s accused of stealing the press, and her accuser is found murdered, all eyes turn to Maddie.

Maddie knows well the perils of amateur sleuthing and is reluctant to get involved. But her mother insists she investigate. Does her mom have a secret agenda? Or is she somehow connected to the murder?

Facing down danger and her own over-active imagination, Maddie must unearth the killer before she becomes the next ghost to haunt her museum.

About the author:
Kirsten Weiss grew up in San Mateo, California. After getting her MBA, she joined the Peace Corps, starting an international career that took her around the fringes of the defunct USSR and into the Afghan war zone. Her experiences abroad not only gave her glimpses into the darker side of human nature, but also sparked an interest in the effects of mysticism and mythology, and how both are woven into our daily lives.

She writes paranormal mystery and suspense, blending her experiences and imagination to create vivid worlds of magic and mayhem.

Kirsten has never met a dessert she didn’t like, and her guilty pleasures are watching ghost Whisperer re-runs and drinking good wine.

  1. We never learn that getting involved
    into an investigation is not a good idea.
    but - it sucks us in and we solve the
    Sounds like a good read.
    thanks for sharing.

    1. It's the quirk of cozy mysteries -- why on earth, in this time and place, would someone who isn't law enforcement involve themselves in a murder? And yet, we love the amateur sleuths!

  2. Enjoyed the description of the book. Like the paranormal aspect and the wine country setting, can't wait to read.

  3. Love the wine setting! I like paranormal and its courage or curiosity I guess that gets her involved!

  4. Like the paranormal aspect and the wine country setting of "Pressed to Death". Can't wait to read.
