haunting meSummary:

Phoebe Mercer has what most people envy; a wonderful boyfriend, fantastic friends and a job in the city’s top law firm. Getting engaged is just the honey in her tea! Then she gets run over by a hot dog cart, wakes up with a concussion and the ability to see ghosts. Well, one ghost. A loud, obnoxious woman who claims to have been murdered for her vast fortune.
Soon, Phoebe is solving a mystery that not only threatens her relationships, but her career as well. As she begins to battle feelings for the ghost’s handsome nephew, she realizes quite a few people in her life are not as they seem. Slowly, Phoebe uncovers the secrets and lies around her, learning that in order to solve this mystery and be free of the ghost, she must lie herself. The only catch? The secrets Phoebe has kept from the people in her life could ruin everything for her, and her ghostly companion, in the end.


I love a good light-hearted mystery, and Haunting Me was exactly that! I loved Phoebe from the get-go, and had to have a good laugh when she got run over by a hot dog cart! When she meets her ghost, things really got interesting! Not only does she need to help figure out how she died, find her will and help save a company, but Phoebe struggles to keep her new fiancé happy and her job is in shambles. Haunting Me had all the perfect ingredients for a chick lit mystery and I happily found myself not wanting to put my Kindle down. The ending was a little surprising to me, but since this is book 1 in a series, I’m hoping we’ll learn some more information on Phoebe’s love life in the second installment, which I look forward to reading!
