Praise for Dead and Breakfast:
“[An] enjoyable series launch from Kingsbury.”
Publishers Weekly

“Lighthearted and charming…Who wouldn’t want to open a B&B on the Oregon coast after reading Kingsbury’s delightful mystery?”
Library Journal

“The prolific Kingsbury launches a new series with likable characters and a beautiful setting.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“Kingsbury’s crime-solving pair are wonderfully appealing, whether they are ferreting out the town’s secrets or dealing with the grief in their own lives. Fans of M.C. Beaton’s Agatha Raisin series will find lots of similarities here.”

“This is one of those rare cozies that do justice and pride to that awesome Murder She Wrote type of perfection.”
Suspense Magazine

“Utterly addicting. I will definitely be picking up the next book in the series!”
Night Owl Reviews Top Pick

“What could be more intriguing than spending the night in a creaky old bed-and-breakfast haunted by a chuckling ghost? A charming grandmother/granddaughter duo, unsettling small-town secrets, and a long-hidden skeleton at the Merry Ghost Inn add up to a winning debut for this ghostly cozy series.”
—Juliet Blackwell, New York Times bestselling author of the Haunted Home Renovation series

“Dead and Breakfast is a page-turner from the first scene, where the about-to-open B&B unexpectedly becomes a crime scene. Melanie and her grandmother Liza are smart, believable, easy-to-like people and the writing is pitch-perfect. You’ll want to book an immediate reservation for the Merry Ghost Inn. Better hurry—Kate Kingsbury’s fine new series is about to get all booked up!”
—Susan Wittig Albert, New York Times bestselling author of Blood Orange and Bittersweet

“What’s not to like about a laughing ghost? Dead and Breakfast is a spirited beginning to Kate Kingsbury’s new Merry Ghost Inn series. More laughter to come.”
—Carolyn Hart, New York Times bestselling author of Ghost Times Two

“Dead and Breakfast is an intriguing whodunit enriched with two plucky heroines opening a seaside bed and breakfast, a ghost with a delightful laugh, and a splash of romance. All the ingredients necessary for an entertaining red from start to surprising finish.”
—Sally Goldenbaum, USA Today bestselling author of the Seaside Knitters Society mysteries

“Kate Kingsbury is a pro—and it shows in every witty line of Dead and Breakfast. West coast setting, B&B with a secret room and a skeleton. What’s not to love? This book is so well done it almost reads itself. Treat yourself to the first in a new series—a must read.”
—Carolyn Haines, USA Today bestselling author of Rock-A-Bye Bones

“A laughing ghost, a winsome dog, and a charming Oregon coastal village make the Merry Ghost Inn mysteries a place you’ll want to visit again and again.”
—Leslie Budewitz, two-time Agatha Award-winning author of the Seattle Spice Shop mysteries
