Synopsis: A Perfectly Proper Murder
When Maddie Kosloski’s career flatlines, she retreats to her wine country hometown for solace and cheap rent. Railroaded into managing the local paranormal museum, she’s certain the rumors of its haunting are greatly exaggerated. But then a fresh corpse in the museum embroils Maddie in murders past and present, making her wonder if a ghost could really be on the loose.
With her high school bully as one of the detectives in charge of the investigation, Maddie doubts justice will be served. When one of her best friends is arrested, she knows it won’t be. Maddie also grapples with ghost hunters, obsessed taxidermists, and the sexy motorcyclist next door as outside forces threaten. And as she juggles spectral shenanigans with the hunt for a killer, she discovers there truly is no place like home.
Review: This book was so much fun to read! Although the story is set in and around the paranormal museum, the actual paranormal activity is a bit sparse. Having the book set in a paranormal museum, and getting to read about the various exhibits, still made for a unique tale.

The protagonist, Maddie Kosloski, has a great sense of humor which is evident throughout the book. She is also majorly sarcastic, as well as being a loyal, trustworthy friend. We are also introduced to Maddie's friends and family members, as well as to other people around town. 

The plot is also well-developed. Not only is Maddie trying to solve two present-day murders, but she also gets caught up in an old case, thanks to one of the museum's artifacts which catches her attention. Both cases will keep you guessing all the way to the end!

All things considered, this is a great debut for a new series, and I can't wait to read more.
