Review; Popcorn and Poltergeists by Nancy Warren
Description from GoodreadsIs there a murderous poltergeist on the loose?
When an Oxford professor is killed by a fall down the library stairs, rumors fly that it’s the work of a poltergeist who’s been causing havoc at the college.
The dead prof was a knitter, and a customer at Lucy Swift’s shop, Cardinal Woolsey’s. But Lucy thinks a very human killer is shifting the blame onto a ghost who can’t defend themselves and she’s determined to trap the real killer and get justice for the dead knitter.
However, danger lurks at the college where old secrets and new crimes collide. Vampire and old book expert Rafe Crosyer has been called in to value the college’s literary collection, and he witnesses first hand how angry the ghost really is.
Furious enough to kill? Or is there something else the tantrum-throwing spirit is trying to tell them?
And will they decipher the message before it’s too late?
My Thoughts on the Book
Popcorn and Poltergeists was a lightweight and entertaining cosy mystery with a bit of humour thrown into the mix. The characters, such as Lucy and Rafe, is well fleshed out, but I think there's some things that needs proof-reading, such as consistency in terms of age and other random stuff in this book series. And I would love to know more of the background to the various vampires.
