Welcome to Beechwood Harbor. A rustic, coastal town where paranormals live among humans, undetected - at least, so far.
Scarlet Sanderson isn't a paranormal being per se, but she's no stranger to things that go bump in the night. She's had the ability to see and speak with ghosts since she was eight years old. Whether it's a gift or a curse is still up for debate.
She moved to the picturesque town of Beechwood Harbor to open a flower shop and start a new life after years of being a nomad. What she didn't expect to find was a town filled with witches, vampires, shape-shifters, and ghosts. So, so many ghosts.
With her sarcastic ghost cat and a stately 20th-century gentleman by her side, she can take on the world. She just wishes that world would stop landing her in the middle of murder investigations. Cold case murders, reckless poltergeists, and depressed specters are becoming Scarlet's new normal. But how in the Otherworld is she supposed to have any kind of real life when she's stuck halfway between the world of the living and the dead?

2nd try, still can't like it
I really wanted to like this one, the plot sounded great! But it just didn't work for me. I can't get through the whole book 1, let alone the entire set of 3, because she is so annoying.
Surprisingly, Ronconi--a narrator I usually really like--was a fail for me. Maybe it was because she was voicing a character I don't like? She just fell flat.
FYI I got a bit confused at first because I was expecting a different set of books. This is the Beachwood Harbor GHOST series and I had been expecting Beachwood Harbor MAGIC (specifically the Witches of Doyle) series. That doesn't change my review, just mentioning it in case someone else might be confused as well.
