When it appears that a ghost inhabits the house of Abby's assistant, C.J., Abby's mom decides to invite a medium to hold a seance to get rid of it. Instead, the medium is murdered Then Abby discovers another body -- and decides she should solve the crime herself. Lots of laughs, as usual with this series.
In the 8th book in the Abigail Timberlake mystery series involving an antique dealer who solves crimes, Abigail finds herself at a seance and is skeptical and sharp-tongued as always. It seems her friend, C.J., believes there are ghosts haunting her new mansion, and she hires a medium/psychic to get the ghosts out. Feeling pressured, Abby attends, but when Madam Woo-Woo dies from poison shortly after the sance, Abby must step in and help her friend prove her innocence in the murder investigation. When Abby stumbles on some authentic 17th Century tiles that are worth a fortune on the mansion's walls, she quickly moves to forget the murder and focus on antiques. The fortune hunt is called off, however, when during her search, Abby finds another body buried in the wall. Getting unwelcome help from a group called the Heavenly Hustlers (of which Abby's mother is a member), Abigail must find the murderer before she ends up as a ghost herself.
