Carolyn Hart—New York Times bestselling author of Ghost to the Rescue—returns with a new Bailey Ruth Ghost Novel in which one woman shatters the glass ceiling...with a little help from beyond.Bailey Ruth Raeburn’s latest mission is to guide the spirit of a deceased young man named Jimmy to the next life. But Jimmy is determined to watch over his still-living girlfriend, Megan. As if being haunted by her late boyfriend wasn’t enough, Megan is dealing with an arrogant, manipulative senior partner who threatens to fire Megan’s vulnerable secretary if Megan accepts a partnership at another law firm.
Since Jimmy refuses to move on while Megan is being blackmailed, Bailey Ruth agrees to help him. But after the partner turns up dead and Megan is found at the crime scene, Bailey Ruth and Jimmy must uncover a killer before the love of Jimmy’s life is ordered to spend a lifetime behind bars…


Not many people can make a ghost come to life, but that’s exactly what author Carolyn Hart does in every installment of the Bailey Ruth Ghost Mysteries.

GHOST TIMES TWO finds ghost Bailey Ruth trying to help the spirit of a young man move on to the afterlife. But much in the way of the show, The Ghost Whisperer, his reluctant spirit is refusing to go. What follows is an exciting tale of the two ghosties trying to track down a murderer.

A fast, and fascinating story, GHOST TIMES TWO is another amazing ghostly adventure written only the way author Hart can. Page after page my anticipation grew as the twists and turns just kept coming right up until the satisfying conclusion.

Bailey Ruth Raeburn is back, racing against the Heavenly clock in an all-new mystery from the New York Times bestselling author of Ghost Times Two.
Bailey Ruth finds herself comforting a distraught sister when she’s sent to Adelaide, Oklahoma, on her latest mission. Susan Gilbert receives a $100,000 ransom demand for her younger sibling. When the caller wants Susan to pay a visit to her wealthy boss and take the cash from his safe, Bailey Ruth follows Susan to the home. But she finds herself in a quandary, knowing that robbery is hardly a Heavenly pursuit. 
While Susan waits to hear back from the kidnappers, Bailey Ruth attempts to piece together how the criminals targeted Susan and how they know about her boss’s money. At a luncheon the previous week, Susan’s boss asked her to open the safe so all the attendees knew it was filled with cash. Could one of the rich man’s closest confidants be behind the abduction? 
Bailey Ruth is positive she can use her detective skills to figure out which luncheon guest arranged the kidnapping. But an unexpected twist in the case soon has Bailey Ruth seeking a murderer who has plans to send more victims to the great beyond...


Author Carolyn Hart kills it with GHOST ON THE CASE.

Sometimes a series can become stale, and predictable. But in this eighth installment of the Bailey Ruth Ghost Mysteries, Hart proves she has what it takes to keep her series fresh, and readers coming back for more.

Bailey Ruth is sent to her old hometown to help find a woman’s kidnapped sister. Who did it, and how did they know the woman, Susan, could get the money they demanded? Bailey Ruth plans to find out, but soon finds herself on the trail of a murderer.

GHOST ON THE CASE was the most intense, and nail biting Bailey Ruth yet. There were scenes where I held my breath as things went from bad to worse. There were so many pieces of this puzzle to put together, that I finally stopped trying to play sleuth myself, and just sat back and enjoyed while I let the story played out. Wow. Brava, Carolyn Hart.

Bailey Ruth fans, you’re going to love GHOST ON THE CASE!
