Teaser Tuesday 309: Chance of a Ghost

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current book or recent read.
* Share a few "teaser" sentences from somewhere in the book.
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away. You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

This week’s teaser is from Chance of a Ghost by EJ Copperman, part of a paranormal mystery series.

“Are you out of your mind?” I demanded. I’ll admit, it wasn’t my most original or well-purposed question; has anyone ever answered in the affirmative to that one?

(Chapter 24)


There was suddenly no floor under my feet. That came as something of a surprise for the feet in question, I have to tell you, and they didn’t take kindly to it.

(Chapter 28)

Series: Haunted Guesthouse #4

Even with a blizzard bearing down on New Jersey, Alison can count on at least two guests — Paul and Maxie, the stubborn ghosts who share her shore town inn. Then there’s her widowed mother, who hasn’t just been seeing ghosts, she’s been secretly dating one: Alison’s father. But when he stands her up three times in a row, something’s wrong. Is he a lost soul . . . or a missing apparition?

Their only lead is an overdramatic spirit — stage name Lawrence Laurentz — who doesn’t take direction well and won’t talk until they find his killer. Alison reluctantly plays the part of PI, but when the clues take a sinister turn, the writing is on the wall: if Alison can’t keep a level head, this will be her father’s final act — and maybe her own.
