Zoe Lane can see ghosts. Well, not all ghosts. Usually only the ones who were murdered and then became a ghost. She doesn’t know it yet, but when she sees a ghost, there is a murder to solve. And, until the murder is solved, the ghost stays with her. It’s haunting, to say the least. Not to mention that people are beginning to think she’s a little bit crazy when they see her walking around town talking to no one – though she is talking to the ghost. This time it’s Willie. And he knows he’s been murdered. Only thing is, he doesn’t know who or how. That’s where Zoe comes in.

The other problem for Zoe is that she still lives with her parents (she’s twenty-three) and she’s never had a job. In fact, she seldom leaves the house. Only, before she met Willie (the ghost), she applied for a job at the local paper. She’s turned down, initially, but just when she thinks she might get the job on the paper, the convoluted list of whodunit suspects twists out of control in a funny sort of way.

Erin Huss’s cozy mystery novel, Making a Medium: Lost Souls Lane Mystery Book One, is a humorous, comfortable read. The characters are well developed, even the character of the ghost, and the plot is surprisingly realistic, considering there’s a ghost involved. But, if you do believe in ghosts (which I do), then that’s not surprising at all. There is definitely no predictability in this story line, but there is a lot of humorous, chuckle-worthy moments. Definitely a fun read.
