A good long read, nicely tied lose ends at the finish. Professionally written and enjoyable.
So why only three stars though? Well I rarely give five stars, but fairly early on something began troubling me about this novel, and that was the ease with which they changed their mind about things. It felt too perfunctory unfortunately.
If you like this sort of story, there is a very similar idea in a British TV series from the 60s called "Randall and Hopkirk (decesed)" or "My Partner the Ghost" in America. They are both men and ran a private investigator service until one of them is murdered. He appears only to his business partner and they use his abilities as a ghost to help keep their small agency going. It is very funny, the humor being much like this book.
if you want still more, try to find the eary series of the British TV series "Rent-A-Ghost". Aimed at being for families, it is about three ghosts who set up a agency to do whatever you need, but one of them...well, his parents do not know he has died, so he cannot let them see the others...or let them know what he now does for a "living" so to speak. Again, lots and lots of family safe humor in it
Ghostly Manners is the first book in a cozy paranormal series. It's cute, funny, and very British! I loved Lorna's sensibilities and Helen's pluck. Plus Flipper is just the best doggo in the world. The other people in the manor are eccentric and full of surprises. While I did guess the end, it was still a wonderfully fun journey getting there.
Lorna and her friend Helen start new jobs as a personal assistant and a seamstress. While meeting the owners and the staff where they will be sr as gong and working they are told that the Lord's sister died of heart failure in the gardens, that is until Lorna sees her ghost and discovers different.
Lorna and Helen gather clues to find out who murdered Beatrice and run into road blocks along the way..
A great cozy mystery, reminds me of the old tv show, Ghost Whisperer..
If you ignore the tendency to run into danger instead of away from it, the story is fun and interesting. It's worth the time to read it.

This is a great paranormal cozy mystery that is set in a mansion on a large estate. The main characters are well developed and personable. The other characters are interesting and have flaws and strengths. The creative storyline is smooth. The narrative is good, you feel like you are there. I enjoyed the dialogue a lot. The mystery is full of paranormal activity, surprises, unexpected twists and turns, that keep you interested until the end. I am sure this is soon to become one of my favourite series.
