Cupcakes, Butterflies & Dead Guys

Book Cover: Cupcakes, Butterflies & Dead Guys

When Gianna Mancini, ghost whisperer and plus sized shoeista, attends a bridal shower for a family friend, she doesn’t expect to see her favorite movie star, Raina Stone, in attendance. Too bad Gianna’s gift of communicating with the dead doesn’t give her the ability to predict the future. If it did, she’d know she was about to stumble on Raina’s dead body.

The police rule it as an accident, but something feels off to Gianna. With the help of her dead Aunt Stella and the grumpy ghost named Freezer Dude, Gianna discovers that the celebrity was harboring secrets from her past. Secrets that may have contributed to her death. Between spying on suspects with Aunt Stella to having to rescue her favorite boots from Raina’s quirky manager, Gianna has her work cut out for her.

The closer Gianna gets to the truth, the more danger seems to find her, and if she’s not careful, she may end up crossing to the other side.

Book #1

*Note: Previously titled, One Garish Ghost & Blueberry Peach Jam

Gianna Mancini has chatted with ghosts most of her life. It’s never affected her much. Until now.

The latest ghost in Gianna’s family-centric, boy-complicated, job-depleted world is Emma Tinsdale, a woman Gianna despises. Wanting Emma out of her apartment and her orbit, Gianna chooses to help her move on, but she doesn’t expect to come across poisonous jam, a vengeful cop, or a group of friendly clowns.

When a relative is framed for Emma’s death, Gianna must dig deeper and faster to find out what really happened that fatal night on the beach. With help from her sister, her cop brother, and her ex-boyfriend, Julian, she gets close to figuring out the truth. But when the killer closes in, Gianna better watch her step unless she wants to become the latest member of the dearly departed.
