Description from the amazon:
When Claire Mayfield suddenly finds herself the new heir of a property that has lain vacant for over one hundred years, she becomes leery of the rumors of the hauntings from the three young children who were said to have been murdered there.

As Claire explores the manor, she discovers her great uncle's apothecary and traveling medicine show from the late 1800's, and even stumbles upon clues that could help her solve her ancestor's one hundred-year-old murder-mystery; all with a little help from a mischievous young girl who has been dead for over one hundred years.

Zombie sighting:
Do parents ever get any sleep, or do they walk around like zombies all day?
- page 78, chapter 5

fyi: kindle version is currently available for 99 cents

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): mellow
I found this to be a light story all-around in regards to romance, mystery and ghosts.

The ghosts here are not the scary kind.

  1. Thank you for sharing today. I just finished A Secret in the Attic and really enjoyed it. Hopped over on you like to get The Apothecary with your link :)

  2. Just picked this one up on my Nook! Yeah!

  3. Ghosts and a hundred-year-old murder-mystery sound really interesting. Too bad the ghosts aren't scary.

  4. Mystery, those I mostly leave to a friend of mine ;)

  5. Sounds like a nice, cozy read but mysteries aren't typically my cup of tea :)
