Review; Night Shift (A Helping Hands Mystery #2) by Annelise Ryan

Last year I recieved an ARC of the cosy mystery Night Shift (A Helping Hands Mystery #2) by Annelise Ryan through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
When social worker Hildy Schneider commits to an after-hours side job, she finds herself drawn into the darker side of small-town Sorenson, Wisconsin—and the twisted mind of an unnamed killer . . .

Strange things have been happening since Hildy started moonlighting with local police, but a desperate late-night call involving a former patient from Sorenson General Hospital tops the list. Although Danny Hildebrand has been tormented by hallucinations for years, he swears he’s being haunted for real by the victim of a grisly murder . . .

The rambling ghost story seems like another delusion. But after a body turns up in a neglected farmhouse crawling with secrets, Hildy and the magnetic Detective Bob Richmond rush to explain Danny’s knowledge of the incident. As the crime-solving partners unwittingly grow closer while examining a series of eerie leads, they realize that surviving past sunrise means shedding light on a criminal willing to do whatever it takes to stay in the shadows . . .

My Thoughts on the Book
This was a fun and entertaining cosy mystery. I liked several of the characters, such as Hildy and Danny and the plot was engaging, especially considering the mental health aspect of it. There's also a couple of red herrings in there.
