  Publishers Weekly Review

In Copperman's lively 10th Haunted Guesthouse mystery (after 2018's The Hostess with the Ghostess), Alison Kerby-who has no problem with otherworldly investigators haunting her inn at the Jersey Shore-is disturbed when a Lincoln Continental containing a skeleton is unearthed in her backyard by crews working to fix erosion after Hurricane Sandy. The 30-year-old remains turn out to be those of local car dealer Herman Fitzsimmons, who had rivalries with other car dealers and a history of extramarital affairs. The upheaval of renovations at the inn; the disappearance of the Lincoln Continental in the middle of the night; and the hostility of a police lieutenant who dislikes amateur sleuths and paranormal phenomena complicate Alison's life. With the help of husband Josh, ghost private detective Paul Harrison, and others both of this world and beyond, Alison zeroes in on the answers to the cold case. Copperman provides a ton of spirited fun for the reader. Agent: Josh Getzler, Hannigan Salky Getzler Agency. (Jan.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
Summary
Barry Award-winning author E. J. Copperman is back with the tenth hilarious installment in his national bestselling Haunted Guesthouse mysteries.<br> <br> Haunted Guesthouse proprietress Alison Kerby and her ghostly guest detective, Paul, "auto" know better than to dig into the case of a long-buried sedan and its now-skeletal driver. <br> <br> Innkeeper Alison Kerby is determined to keep her mind, body, and soul focused on bringing high-spirited hospitality to her lodgers at the Haunted Guesthouse. She simply has no time for any more murder investigations, no matter what Paul Harrison, her resident ghost detective, says.<br> <br> But this time, the mystery comes looking for Alison. Workers unearth a 1977 Lincoln Continental buried in the sand behind Alison's guesthouse--and they discover a skeleton still belted in behind the steering wheel.<br> <br> Paul, of course, is on the cold case--to the extent that a ghostly gumshoe can be--but Alison is still determined not to do the incorporeal investigator's legwork. Not this time. But her new husband Josh is intrigued, and he offers to help Paul poke into the case of the cold Continental. Uh-oh...has Josh caught the investigation bug? It's a harsh wake-up call for a harried businesswoman who'd thought she'd told the detective life to hit the road.<br> <br> What can go wrong? How about everything? As Alison dodges stray bullets, discovers a gun in the guesthouse, and reluctantly probes a decades-old murder that turns out to be shockingly relevant even today, her specter inspector tries to keep her spirits up. But as she searches for the key to unlock the case, is Alison headed for her final check-out? Make a reservation to find out in Bones Behind the Wheel , the tenth fun-filled Haunted Guesthouse mystery from national bestselling author E. J. Copperman.
