How to Marry a Ghost

By Hope McIntyre (Mass Market, 2008)
Ghostwriter Lee Bartholomew heads to New York to be the maid of honor in her mother's wedding/ commitment ceremony (even though she's still married to Lee's father) and to interview for the job of ghostwriting an autobiography by aging rock legend Shotgun Marriott. But her time in the States doesn't go quite as she planned. First she learns she lost the ghostwriting job to a much younger, ambitious hustler named Bettina. Then the body of a man in a wedding dress washes up right after Lee's mom is married in a beautiful oceanside ceremony-and he turns out to be none other than Shotgun Marriott's estranged son! When Bettina is also murdered, Lee finds herself stepping into the dead woman's ghosting shoes-before the killer strikes again.
