Perfectly pressed. Perfectly proper. Perfectly deadly.
Paranormal museum owner Maddie Kosloski thinks she has the perfect paranormal exhibit for the harvest festival—a haunted grape press. But before she can open the exhibit, she’s accused of stealing the antique press. And when her accuser is found murdered, all eyes turn to Maddie.
Solving the crime is the last thing on Maddie’s mind, but her mother insists she investigate. Does her mother have a secret agenda? And why has the local charity, Ladies Aid, seemingly gone gangster?
In this light, cozy mystery, haunted houses, runaway wine barrels, and murder combine in a perfect storm of chaos. Facing down danger and her own over-active imagination, Maddie must unearth the killer before she becomes the next ghost to haunt her museum.
PRESSED TO DEATH by Kirsten Weiss is an enjoyable cosy mystery with lots of intriguing characters and mayhem mixed throughout. Maddie finds herself accused of handling stolen goods in her paranormal museum, but before she can sort this confusion out, her accuser is found murdered. Urged by her mother to investigate the crime, Maddie just wants to discover the killer, but with plenty of surprises along the way, this is easier said than done, With her museum in danger and her personal life in a mess, can Maddie figure it all out before it is too late?
PRESSED TO DEATH by Kirsten Weiss is the second book in this series, and while it was a little slow to start, the pace of the story did pick up later on. There are a lot of characters in this story which can be distracting at times, but overall I enjoyed this mystery.
BOOK RATING - 📖📖📖 3.5
I worked overseas for nearly twenty years in the fringes of the former USSR, Africa, and deep in the Afghan war zone. My experiences abroad not only gave me glimpses into the darkness and light of human nature, but also sparked an interest in the effects of mysticism and mythology, and how both are woven into our daily lives.
Now based in San Mateo, CA, I write genre-blending novels: urban fantasy/mystery, steampunk/suspense, and cozy mysteries with a touch of paranormal. The mix just makes things more fun!
I believe that life is as magical as you want to make it. I've never met a dessert I didn’t like, and my guilty pleasures are watching Ghost Whisperer reruns and drinking red wine. For more information:
