Next up: The Confession by John Grisham

I really enjoyed the last three books of this series but I am unsure about how I feel about this one. It was an enjoyable read and plot line but the main character got on my nerves a bit as she gets whiner about the house that she is trying to buy.

I know there is another book in the series and I will read it but I do not think this is the best book of the series.

Mystery writer and dabbling recreational sleuth Sophie Katz is head over heels in love—with a three-bedroom Victorian. She''s just got to have it, despite a few drawbacks.

And her first tour of the house reveals, well, a lifeless body clutching a cameo with a disturbing history of its own.

There''s no way Sophie is going to give up the ghost on her dreams of stained glass and original woodwork, though—even when things become officially weird. A Society member is found with a slashed throat, and Sophie''s house might as well be yelling, "GET…OUT!" She''s hearing footsteps, lights are turning themselves off and her stuff keeps moving inexplicably. To top it off, boyfriend Anatoly thinks it''s all in her head.

Sophie is 99 percent sure her problems are caused by someone six feet tall instead of six feet under, but the only way to be sure is to track down the killer—before he pushes her kicking and screaming to the other side….
