    Once again, Pepper Martin Mysteries took another approach. That’s what I love about the book, there is always something unexpected.

    mostly surrounded around actual living person’s death, unlike the other books, which usually involved the ghosts. Despite me disliking the person, I was curious to find what happens. At same time I was eager, to find the reason why President’s ghost was hanging around. I couldn’t help but get observed in the story. I’m excited to see what adventure Pepper will come across next, what ghost she come across.

    Unlike other books, this actually involved a murder of living person, instead of ghost coming to Pepper, asking for help. Though there is ghost involved, a late president James Garfield, and I found curious that his ghost suddenly appeared after so long, I knew there was a reason besides him, having another chance of presidency because his term was cut short. Towards the end, I was glad that he stuck around, that he was able to help Pepper with her stalker, because I was really afraid for her, afraid of what he would done if it wasn’t for the President. From all the ghosts through the books, he was the ones that I seemed to like the most, despite the complaints he seemed to have through the book. President Garfield seemed the one who helped her most, coming to her rescue and that makes him a hero to me.

    I disliked her right from start of the book. To me it looked like she only cared about herself, about what she wanted. Way she bossed Pepper around, it made me want me to strangle the women. I was surprised when I found that she had been related to president though, I was sure that it was something that she made up, just like everyone else. But it was because of her, the obsession that she seemed to have with President Garfield that I learned more about president that I was aware of before reading the book. Actually I didn’t know anything about the president, not till I read the book. I loved fact that they added bit of historical aspect to the book. I got say, despite me having not much respect for this character, she wasn’t nasty to Pepper but everyone around her, seemed like she didn’t respect anyone or their feelings, she didn’t deserve die way she did. From moment she was killed, I found myself wonder who killed her and why.

    I was curious what happened with Scott, he hasn’t been around, not since he sent her those flowers towards end of Night Of Loving Dead. I found myself wondering if Pepper and him would actually see each other again, it looked like two of them seemed to have some sort of connection in 4th book. I was glad to see that he was mentioned more in this book. I’m eager to find if their relationships will lead, to anything more in future books. As for Quinn, is it really end for him and Pepper? I eager to see if he at some point believes that she is telling him the truth, I’m hoping that he will. It doesn’t seem like Pepper is happy without him. I see Pepper and Quinn together at some point, they have that sort of connection, despite their arguments, and they always end up with each other in the end.

    I was sure Nick was the killer; it seemed like all the clues pointed to him. Of course he didn’t end up the killer, there always some sort of twist like that towards the end. That’s what I love at books, that keep you guessing and when you sure you figured out who killer is, there is another twist. If you are into mystery, suspense, ghosts be sure to pick up Pepper Martin Mysteries.

    Review:

    Pepper is going through a bit of a rough time in her life. Ella, her boss and friend, has asked her to help plan a James A. Garfield commemorative celebration at the cemetery that she is a tour guide for. As if that is not bad enough, she has to work with Marjorie Klinker, a volunteer at the cemetery who is a know-it-all on all things President Garfield. Then there is the little matter of a stalker who has been bothering her for a while. Add to that the fact that she has broken up with Quinn, her detective boyfriend, and like I said, life is a little rough right now. And when Marjorie turns up dead, Pepper’s plate has just started overflowing. Pepper decides she needs to solve the murder before Quinn does, just so she can show him up. Nothing would give her more pleasure than doing just that. But she had better be careful, before she finds herself a permanent resident of the cemetery!

    The characters are well developed and well rounded. Pepper has such a sarcastic irreverent sense of humor that I found myself laughing every few pages. She is definitely my kind of protagonist. She is very full of herself and does not lack self confidence, but she is not snooty or spoiled. She used to live a privileged life, until her father ends up in jail. She makes the best of her situation and does not really complain. I enjoy the relationship between Pepper and Ella. They really could not be more different but Pepper really likes Ella and tries to do things to keep her happy. The bickering between Pepper and Quinn is very funny and I enjoyed it a lot. I also enjoyed the interaction between Pepper and President Garfield. I love her ghostly encounters.

    There are really three mysteries to solve in this book (I enjoy when there are more than one). The first is who killed Marjorie, the second is who is Pepper’s stalker, and I do not want to say what the third is because I do not want to spoil it for other readers. Pepper really has her hands full trying to get answers to all these questions. There are enough twist and turns and suspects to keep Pepper (and me) guessing until the very end. There was enough tension and suspense to keep me turning pages well into the night.

    The writing style flows smoothly and the book is a quick, easy read. The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and through much of the book I felt like I was right there watching Pepper in action. I really enjoy the fact that the series takes place in the Cleveland area and it is great to know the areas that the author is mentioning and describing.

    I have read the first five books in this series and I have loved them all. I am not sure how I got behind in the series but I will definitely being reading the rest of the books until I get caught up.

    Ghostly cozies are one of my favorite genres to read and the Pepper Martin series is as good as any I have read. I would definitely recommend this book, and series, to any cozy mystery lover.

  • Raven Ghostly

    So worth the 5 stars. I love every book she has written. All amazingly beautifully written. You easily fall in love with the characters. You laugh, you cry you even want to yell at times. An amazing mix of a cozy mystery with spookey, fun, loveable Ghosts.

  • Jinianne Gorg

    Another Pepper Martin mystery this one involving President Garfield. A good read.

  • Carl Brookins

    Pair one of our less interesting presidents, James A. Garfield, with a cute slender, sexually aware, private detective, cum medium, and what do you get? You get this delightful cozy mystery, one of several in Casey Daniel’s series of Pepper Martin adventures.

    But be warned. If you don’t like a bad pun or two, several tongue-in-cheek jokes and a huge riff on one of the presidents of these United States, this delightful novel isn’t your cup of tea.

    On the other hand, if your humor runs to the mildly

    Pair one of our less interesting presidents, James A. Garfield, with a cute slender, sexually aware, private detective, cum medium, and what do you get? You get this delightful cozy mystery, one of several in Casey Daniel’s series of Pepper Martin adventures.

    But be warned. If you don’t like a bad pun or two, several tongue-in-cheek jokes and a huge riff on one of the presidents of these United States, this delightful novel isn’t your cup of tea.

    On the other hand, if your humor runs to the mildly risqué, you don’t mind a self-aware sexy cemetery tour guide(!) who happens to be reluctantly channeling the dead President, and you enjoy fast-paced well-conceived criminally artful plots, this latest adventure of Pepper Martin is definitely a winner.

    Around every prominent figure in history there swirls scandal and scandal attracts the greedy. If this author is to be believed, an incredibly audacious land swap plan was under way when anarchist Charles Guiteau fired the bullet that cut short what might have been a sterling presidential career.

    That’s all in the past. What’s here and now, is a well-managed, funny, and twisty story peopled with interesting characters, not the least of whom is well-named, Pepper Martin.

  • Erin ☕ *Proud Book Hoarder*

    Pepper is still snobby - she makes a lot of internal comments on being grossed out by the elderly having a love life, dissing fast food work and Indiana - but I realize the author plays this up knowing these traits make her unlikable in ways. The mystery is fun and the two cops involved...amusing. This time a ghost isn't wanting her to solve a crime, it ended up being a creative change. Review soon

    "Cemetery tour guide and reluctant medium Pepper Martin is always up for some fun that doesn't involve seeing and talking to dead people. So a gig commemorating a dead president can only mean good times are

    ahead..."

    How do I start to describe Pepper Martin? She's spunky, fun, confident, smart and always fashionably up to date. Just ask her, she'll tell you. Not only is Pepper all of these things, but she is also a private investigator

    "Cemetery tour guide and reluctant medium Pepper Martin is always up for some fun that doesn't involve seeing and talking to dead people. So a gig commemorating a dead president can only mean good times are

    ahead..."

    How do I start to describe Pepper Martin? She's spunky, fun, confident, smart and always fashionably up to date. Just ask her, she'll tell you. Not only is Pepper all of these things, but she is also a private investigator for the dead. Pepper can see those who have not passed over to the Other Side. On most occasions these ghosts have unfinished business here on Earth and they cannot depart until it is taken care of. This is where Pepper steps in.

    Pepper works at the Garden View Cemetery. A few years ago, Pepper hit her head on the mausoleum of a gangster named Gus Scarpetti. On that fateful day, Pepper gained her Gift to see the dead. Pepper has helped several spirits pass over since that day. Usually this ends up getting her in some sticky situations and some near misses. Although Pepper is reluctant at first to help, she usually ends up becoming attached to the ghost she is trying to help.

    This time around Pepper finds herself working on the commemoration of President James A. Garfield. President Garfield is buried in his memorial at Garden View Cemetery. Not only does Pepper not want to be working on the commemoration but she definitely does not want to be doing so with Garden View's most annoying volunteer, Marjorie Klinker.

    Marjorie claims that she is the descendant of President Garfield. She alleges that President Garfield had an affair and that she is the descendant of the son that came of that affair. These claims have been rejected by the President's family, Marjorie's family and those who know her. There was never any proof of an affair. Marjorie has spent her entire life collecting all things President Garfield in hopes of proving her connection to the family. Marjorie and Pepper have to go through the archives at the cemetery and Marjorie's personal collection to decide what should be on display for the commemoration. It is during one of these sessions that Marjorie reveals to Pepper that she will have some new and especially wonderful information regarding the President. Pepper doesn't take the bait and that's really too bad. The next day Pepper finds Marjorie Klinker dead in the Garfield memorial.

    What information did Marjorie have that was worth committing murder? There are a lot of questions and it seems few answers. Pepper finds herself in a world of deceit, fraud, murder and scams. She also can't figure out how she's supposed to help President Garfield cross over when it is abundantly clear that he is enjoying himself here in his memorial.

    Once again Casey Daniels has taken us on a crazy adventure-filled ride. Pepper is funny, clever and loyal to those she helps. She also demands that same kind of loyalty.

    had me laughing out loud and tension filled. I couldn't wait to figure out who-dun-it and per usual, I didn't figure it out until it was revealed to me. Casey Daniels is a mystery mastermind. There was also a secondary mystery that related to the primary mystery so there were several possibilities going through my mind. Never mind that not one of them was right.

    is a great addition to this series. The mysteries are great and Pepper is a refreshing and funny heroine. If you haven't read any other book in the series, I honestly don't think that you would have to before you read

    . I like having the entire back story so I've read them all and have added each one to my keeper shelf.

    While the story was clever (i.e., it centered on a credit-card fraud/identity theft ring making use of one of the mausoleums at Pepper's cemetery), I was extremely disappointed at how dumbed down Pepper was in this book. In past books we've learned that our material girl was an art history major, that she'd become accustomed to the finer things in life but had been taken down a notch after her father was indicted and subsequently incarcerated for fraud. That said, the little jabs about her lack

    While the story was clever (i.e., it centered on a credit-card fraud/identity theft ring making use of one of the mausoleums at Pepper's cemetery), I was extremely disappointed at how dumbed down Pepper was in this book. In past books we've learned that our material girl was an art history major, that she'd become accustomed to the finer things in life but had been taken down a notch after her father was indicted and subsequently incarcerated for fraud. That said, the little jabs about her lack of understanding of some pretty mundane vocabulary rang tinny when she'd been so very clever in previous outings. Not sure what's up with that, but maybe Casey Daniels can return Pepper's IQ to the same level in future outings.
