Death Comes to Town (A Darcy Sweet Cozy Mystery), by K.J. Emrick. (Still free?)

"Nice, quick read. Definitely fits the bill as a "cozy mystery." I thought Emrick did a nice job with introducing the paranormal features...a couple of times, I thought this was the 2nd in the series since I felt like I was missing some background on why Darcy has that touch, but I guess Emrick will elaborate in later stories. Plot is believable, characters aren't too persnickety." -- Amazon reviewer

Darcy Sweet would like to think that she is just an ordinary woman, happy in her life running the Sweet Read bookstore. But she isn't ordinary. She has a connection to the other side that seems to draw her into mysterious situations more often than not. Add to the mix the antics of a rather naughty, slightly psychic cat and the eccentric ghost of her great-aunt Millie, and you have a recipe for anything but the ordinary.

When Darcy's neighbor is murdered she is drawn into the mystery against her will when she finds the body. She tries to leave the investigation to the police, one of which is her sister, but an overheard conversation and a small nudge from the other side has her investigating the murder. The stakes are raised when the murderer strikes again. Who was killing the people in her life?

Things are complicated even more by her building attraction to her sister's new cop partner, who makes it clear he does not appreciate Darcy's interference in the investigation. Sparks fly between the two of them as they get further into the mystery surrounding the deaths.

With a town full of suspects how will Darcy work out who the murderer is? None of the pieces to the puzzle fit. Things become more complicated and dangerous as Darcy's own life is threatened. Will she survive to see justice served?
