This first Shady Hoosier Detective Agency book had me laughing out loud and waiting for more. If this is book 1, I know there must be at least one more coming... right?

How nice to find MATURE women with wit and smarts! Since I am one, I know that RJ and Veenie are, too! I enjoyed these two and their antics. Wherever they're going in that old Chevy, I want to ride along. I'd be in the back seat, laughing my head off!

When a local farmer tells the police that he's seeing ghosts, the police don't want to touch it, so they quickly turn it over to Ruby Jane and Veenie and the Shady Hoosier Detctive Agency is on it!

Along with the ghost story, there are other cases that keep the gals hopping - including a drunk dog and a stolen motorcycle! You'll laugh 'til your sides split!

The author, Daisy Pettles, has an original style that is quirky and engaging. All of the characters are full of life. Ghost Busting Mystery is small town mystery with the heart of Garrison Keillor and the crime cracking wit of Janet Evanovich. Almost makes me want a mystery meat sandwich! (well, almost...)

Book Review
You know that you are reading a fantastic book when you carry it with you everywhere you go and whip it out when you have any time at all to read, Ghost Busting Mystery is one of those books. I read it during my lunch break, I read it in the grocery store line, I read it while waiting for a food order- I look for any opportunity to pick it up. The characters are funny, lively and relatable (and I never lived I Indiana). The story line brings you in, I want to know who these ghosts are! Daisy Pettles is a smart writer with a sense of humor. I’m so glad this is the first in a series because I am sorry that this one is over. I want to read number two! You will not regret reading this book, I promise!
