An unexpected birthday visitor from the Otherside brings a decade-old mystery to light in the enchanting murder mystery, A Medium's Birthday Surprise (Becky Tibbs: A North Carolina Medium's Mystery Series) by Chariss K. Walker. After the death of her parents, Becky and her siblings are surprised to discover they inherited more than an antiques store and physical traits from their parents. The only one to embrace her new abilities, Becky has built a reputable business in helping people with problems of a ghostly nature. On her twenty-sixth birthday, Becky is surprised by a well-wisher from her distant past. The uninvited guest is Josh, the boyfriend of her youth, who deserted Becky at her Sweet Sixteen party, never to return. Curious as to why Josh has suddenly surfaced after so many years, Becky starts investigating the circumstances of his death. With the help of her family and ghostly friends, Becky uncovers a startling secret that involves the events that led to Josh's demise.

The mystery of what happens to those who linger after death is unveiled in this intriguing mystery by Chariss K. Walker. It is a quaint and delightful novel that delves into the problems of those who have died and how a young woman addresses their unfinished business. It is an exciting cozy mystery complete with murder, mystery, and spirits. The main character, Becky, is a lovable and strikingly normal person. Her ability to take the antics and explosions the ghosts subject her to as a normal and everyday occurrence is admirable, and I was pleasantly reminded of Melinda Gordon's character in the television series, Ghost Whisperer. This is a marvelous novel with a paranormal flavor and is perfect for everyone who loves a cozy ghostly mystery. If you are a fan of Ghost Whisperer, then you will not want to miss this series.
