* * *   Reviewed by Lyn Seippel

Lee Bartholomew travels to Long Island from her home in London to witness her mother's commitment ceremony to a wealthy New Yorker. The barefoot ceremony takes place on the beach after a rain storm. Her mother seems happy, so Lee moves on to her second reason for visiting America. She wants to write the memoir of retired rocker, Shotgun Marriott, who also has a house in the Hamptons.

Lee is a loner and slightly neurotic. If she had her own way she would just hole up in her house in London and write. Coming to the States and competing for a writing job is out of character, but she's tired of a fellow ghostwriter picking up all the best jobs so is determined to fight for this one. Unfortunately, Shotgun's son's corpse washes up on the beach wearing a wedding dress. Will Shotgun still want to write his memoirs after this tragedy?

Lee's unshakeable curiosity and her desire to get to the truth pushes her to investigate. Another murder occurs in the Hamptons and this time she knows the victim.

In this sequel to How to Seduce a Ghost, Lee continues her tumultuous relationship with her longtime boyfriend, Tommy. McIntyre has a winner in her engaging protagonist and is adept at writing gripping mysteries that will keep you guessing until the end.
