The New York Times bestselling author of If Catfish Had Nine Lives returns to Broken Rope, Missouri, where ghosts of the Old West seek assistance from country cooks and amateur sleuths Betts Winston and her grandmother. With summer tourists flocking to Broken Rope, locals volunteer to keep chaos to a minimum. Old West skits are running smoothly, actors are behaving, and stagecoach rides are more popular than ever, but when a spectral visitor appears by ghost train, it's a job only Betts and Gram can handle. Gram soon starts having nightmares about their ghostly visitor's demise. And if a ghost and the hot summer weather weren't making things sticky enough, one of the town's volunteers--a man notorious for having more than his fair share of ex-wives--is murdered. When Jerome, Bett's otherworldly friend, makes an unsettling appearance, this simmering double mystery becomes a recipe for disaster. Includes delicious recipes
