The Ghost and the Stolen Tears (Haunted Bookshop Mystery)
by Cleo Coyle

I have loved Cleo Coyle’s books since the first Coffeehouse Mystery came out, and The Ghost and the Stolen Tears is no exception! I look forward to the next adventure for Pen and Jack!
~The Plain Spoken Pen

The Ghost and the Stolen Tears is a marvelous must-read mystery. I was engaged and entertained from the first page to the last. It is definitely one of the best books I have read this year. That is why you will see it on my Best Read of 2022.
~Escape with Dollycas Into a Good Book

This clever merging of a cozy mystery with classic noir is an entertaining and intriguing way to spend an evening. 5 stars!
~Diane Reviews Books

There is so much I loved about The Ghost and the Stolen Tears that I could go on and on, but I’ll let you discover these things on your own. It’s a book that I highly recommend! I think you’ll love it!
~Christy’s Cozy Corners

Carefully plotted clues and characterizations come together creating a confounding mystery to tickle the little grey cells. With missing jewels and a woman on the run, THE GHOST AND THE STOLEN TEARS is a hauntingly good read.
~Cozy UP With Kathy

This series is always so much fun! Jack Penny takes us quite the adventure as the story plays out making for quite the fun read. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
~Books A Plenty Book Reviews

Oh, what a fun read this was! Of course, we picked this book just for the cover (a cat, a ghost, and bookshelves – what more does anyone want on a cover?), but we were pleasantly surprised with what we found between the covers as well. If you plan on reading this tonight for Halloween, good choice!

Norma is a modern-day nomad. Living out of her van and teardrop trailer, she revels in self-reliance, solitude, and reading in the glorious peace of nature. Jovial, wise, and scrupulously honest, she’s become an uplifting presence in the little town of Quindicott, Rhode Island, where bookseller Pen is thankful to have her part-time help. But it’s Norma’s other job, working as a housekeeper at the Finch Inn, that gets her into terrible trouble. Norma is accused of stealing jewels from a guest’s room: the legendary Valentino Teardrops, an antique necklace and earring set, inherited by a young socialite. Pen doesn’t believe Norma is guilty of the crime—though the evidence is distressingly strong. And when the spirited Norma vanishes before her arrest, Pen turns to another spirit…

 

Jack Shepard, PI, may have been gunned down decades ago, but his memory hasn’t been ghosted. Back in the 1940s, those same Valentino Teardrops starred in a bizarre case of betrayal and murder. From the look of things, history is about to repeat. Now Jack is back on the job, and Pen is eternally grateful.
