About Wheeler- Dealer
Solving a murder might raise her spirits. But will it spring her spectral friend from Purgatory?
Mabel Gold still isn’t sure what happened. Traded by her husband for a busty bimbo the same age as their youngest daughter, the feisty sixty-something rejects the retirement community and heads west in a vintage camper. But the RV comes complete with a ghost who needs a good deed to get into Heaven, and cracking open a homicide at their first stop in Savannah could give them both a new lease on life.
Determined to dig up the dirt on the dead wheeler-dealer, Mabel and her phantom companion tackle the crime. But with two rich dudes from Dubai, a Willie Nelson lookalike mobster, and a widow nicknamed The Barracuda all on the suspect list, conjuring up the truth could take a real live miracle.
Can Mabel catch the killer before she’s the next soul crashing the Pearly Gates?
Wheeler-Dealer is the high-spirited first book in the hilarious Ghost & the Camper kooky mystery series. If you like golden-girl sleuths, zany characters, and sardonic humor, then you’ll love Rita Moreau’s witty whodunit.REVIEW
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
Are you looking for a cozy with an older FMC? Look no further. We meet Irma who is recently divorced with five grown children. She relocated to Florida where she bought a camper that she plans to use to go on summer adventures with friends. Little did she know that the camper came with a ghost named Irma. This takes some getting used to but she looks forward to having a companion either way. Their first stop on their trip takes a change when they run across a murder. To help Irma out they investigate leading to all sorts of situations that will keep you hooked as the story plays. Makes for a fun cozy that fans of the genre are sure to enjoy. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
