Finding a body washed ashore in Whitefall Cove was not how Harper Jones wanted to start her day.
She much preferred to face the morning with a hot, strong caffeinated beverage, but alas, we can’t always have what we want. Out on a morning stroll with her familiar Archie, she couldn’t believe her bad luck when they stumbled upon the body of local teenager Emily Sherman washed up on the beach.
Unable to resist the lure of solving the mystery, Harper immediately set about finding the killer, but untangling a growing list of suspects wasn’t as easy as she’d initially thought. With an election looming and Councilor Griffin’s nephew caught up in the net, the pressure is on to find out whodunnit and close the case.
Let’s not mention working side by side with newly single detective Jackson Ward. Murder, mischief, and mayhem she can take in her stride. But a date with Jackson? That’s enough to have Harper’s magic sparking in nervous anticipation.

Best selling author Jane Hinchey loves to write cozy mysteries with plenty of laughs and mayhem along the way – who says murder can’t be fun? Her bestselling Ghost Detective series combines all of this into an intriguing melting pot of paranormal danger, fast-paced (but not too dangerous) action, and plenty of tongue-in-cheek snarky humor.
Jane lives in the mortal realm with her non-paranormal man, two cats whose paranormal status is yet to be determined (she did catch them trying to open a portal in the kitchen that one time), and a turtle named Squirt (who is massive!).
Sometimes, when the supernatural chaos calls for a different kind of story, she writes under the name Zahra Stone, where the characters you meet are as sexy as they are deadly.
