(A Cass Peake Cozy Mystery)
by Rena Leith
Rena Leith has a talent for developing her characters . . . I would enjoy spending time with Cass and Doris some more.
~I Read What You Write
Coastal Corpse by Rena Leith is a fresh telling of a cozy with a sleuth and ghost, sidekick. I immensely enjoyed the story, characters, and setting.
~Baroness’ Book Trove
. . . mysteries combined with paranormal elements makes for exponential awesomeness because that’s a double whammy—all of my favorite things in one! . . . Leith does a good job setting out clues from different suspects and making it so that we as readers can’t figure it out first or second or third or any time until she actually wants us to learn who the bad guy is!
The author is very talented in her descriptive writings and these descriptions pulled me into the story from the very beginning. The writing style flows smoothly and it defines the characters very clearly by their actions and words.
. . . there is a whole host of wonderful characters . . . This was a good cozy mystery, and the cover really drew me in . . .

Happily settled in her cozy cottage with its resident ghost, Cass Peake looks forward to Halloween. Then another corpse is found on her beachfront. With the support of family and her ghostly roommate, Cass investigates. To her dismay, she finds the murder victim handled her goofy neighbor’s trust fund and he was in dire need of money. The suspect list grows with a former husband, another needy relative, and a maybe shady accountant who suddenly disappears. To top it all off, rumors circulate about treasure hidden in Cass’s cottage.
Detective George Ho doesn’t like his ex-girlfriend snooping around. Despite that, sparks still fly between him and Cass. But superstitious George has no idea Cass’s home is haunted. Can Cass solve the mystery and renew the romance with her ghost-adverse ex?
