As far as Bailey Ruth Raeburn is concerned, it’s the road to heaven that is paved with good intentions. After all, Bailey Ruth always has the very best intentions whenever she “bends” one of Heaven’s 8 Precepts for Earthly Visitation while on one of her missions. Up until now, Wiggins, the department’s head, has chided Bailey Ruth about her flexible approach to the rules, but on her latest mission to Earth, Bailey Ruth is surprised to find that Wiggins isn’t quite as much a stickler as in the past. Perhaps it is because Bailey Ruth’s trip to her hometown of Adelaide, Oklahoma involves Lorraine Marlow, who just happens to be Wiggin’s long-lost love.
Ghost Wanted, the fifth addition to Hart’s heartwarming series, includes a missing diary, academic skullduggery, murder, ghostly matchmaking, and, of course, a generous dash of romance. Hart deftly imbues her love for her home state of Oklahoma in the series’ well-realized setting, and the book’s charming plot not only gives readers a hopeful glimpse of the rewards that wait in Heaven but also provides just enough down-to-earth detective work to keep cozy mystery fans happily engaged.
