Pressed to Death
by Kirsten Weiss
I really enjoyed the historical and spooky aspect to this book.
The great thing about this series so far (as it is just the 2nd book) is that Maddie solves the crimes in the present and in the past. In both books there are unsolved crimes that are resolved as they seem to tie into main story line.
One of the things I really like about this series is the dual mysteries – one present day, one historical – to be solved.
~Reading Is My SuperPower
…fun and interesting to read, with a host of quirky characters…
~Curling Up By The Fire
Full of twists, entertaining characters, romance, and a bit of family drama, the second book in the Perfectly Proper Paranormal Museum series doesn’t disappoint.
~The Book’s the Thing
Narrated from the first person perspective of Maddie, Pressed to Death allows the reader to see how Maddie’s mind works as an amateur sleuth, and engrosses the reader in the novel, the events and the mystery-ies.
~Nadaness In Motion
Definitely a great story with adventure and mystery! I think anyone who likes Victoria Laurie mysteries will enjoy this series as well such a fabulous book!
It has a good setting, interesting characters, and a good blend of mystery and paranormal.
~Bea’s Book Nook
Maddie was an enjoyable main character and I also liked GD the cat.
Ultimately PRESSED TO DEATH is a story about friendship, family, and sacrifice. Those three themes intertwine characters and their actions giving meaning and motive.

Paranormal museum owner Maddie Kosloski thinks she has the perfect paranormal exhibit for the harvest festival—a haunted grape press. But when she’s accused of stealing the press, and her accuser is found murdered, all eyes turn to Maddie.
Maddie knows well the perils of amateur sleuthing and is reluctant to get involved. But her mother insists she investigate. Does her mom have a secret agenda? Or is she somehow connected to the murder?
Facing down danger and her own over-active imagination, Maddie must unearth the killer before she becomes the next ghost to haunt her museum.
