The Leigh Ludlow’s books are slightly different from the average cozy mystery. Leigh does not take foolish chances, she leaves that to other characters. She is known as a Death Magnet. It there is a body around she will find it. Lecherous with the police. In the later books, Leigh is concern for her twins and Clara’s children aka Pack. They take an active part in the story.
The 8th installment Aunt Bess has convinced a wealthy friend, Gordan Applebee to buy a derelict building. It appears that it will fall apart and collapse but is structural sound. Aunt Bess is planning on staffing a play in 8 days. The building is packed full o f the items the previous tenants have left. She wants the Pack to help sort all the items. Aunt Bess has hired three homeless men to do the heavy work. Almost at once trouble starts as rumors flow through town that witchcrafts and ghosts are present in the building. Leigh learns about a murder that occurred in the building. The disappearance of owner of the building.
The title of a Death Magnet is true as Leigh finds a skeleton in the building. Detective Maura Polanski is expecting her first child and is confined to bed rest. She is investigating cold cases and the disappearance owner is one of them. Aunt Bess and Gordan have disagreements that enliven the tale. The events move fast as Aunt Bess is determined that the show must go on at any cost. The ending surprise me and it should not have. I highly recommend this book and series.

    This sounds like a good book, but it is overwhelming to me to think of jumping in to read 7 more.

    • Yes, that is many books to read. Actually there is a break. The first few are before her marriage. Than there is period when she picked up the series her twins are about 10 years. She has a number of other series and is an independent author doing her own publications
