Haunting Me by Nikki LeClair (Book Beginnings & Friday 56)

Friday 56 (share from the 56th page or 56% mark) is hosted at Freda's Voice (today 56% on my Kindle app) 
& Book Beginnings (share the first few sentences) is at Rose City Reader

A week ago one of the authors I follow on Twitter retweeted a post from Nikki LeClair about her next book, Locking Up Santa, being available to pre-order for only 99 cents on Amazon. It sounds like great fun so I clicked the pre-order button immediately and then went and downloaded the first in the series, Haunting Me. I'm so ridiculously glad that I did -- in spite of the fact that it means I'm falling even further behind with my NetGalley shelf. Whoops!

Amazon Description
Phoebe Mercer has what most people envy; a wonderful boyfriend, fantastic friends and a job in the city’s top law firm. Getting engaged is just the honey in her tea! Then she gets run over by a hot dog cart, wakes up with a concussion and the ability to see ghosts. Well, one ghost. A loud, obnoxious woman who claims to have been murdered for her vast fortune.Soon, Phoebe is solving a mystery that not only threatens her relationships, but her career as well. As she begins to battle feelings for the ghost’s handsome nephew, she realizes quite a few people in her life are not as they seem. Slowly, Phoebe uncovers the secrets and lies around her, learning that in order to solve this mystery and be free of the ghost, she must lie herself. The only catch? The secrets Phoebe has kept from the people in her life could ruin everything for her, and her ghostly companion, in the end.
I've been waiting oh-so-impatiently for a follow-up to Kitty French's Melody Bittersweet and the Girls' Ghostbusting Agency and do believe that this series will tide me over quite nicely.

Right now I'm less than a quarter of the way into it, but Phoebe and her new ghost nuisance boss client friend partner companion whatever, Edie, absolutely crack me up. Phoebe is the only one who has been able to see or hear Edie since her death and it takes a bit of ghost-trickery (walking through walls, appearing out of thin air, etc) for Phoebe to even believe that she isn't just some crazy posh elderly woman. Then not only does Edie tell Phoebe that she has to help solve her murder -- but she's convinced that Phoebe's uptight and horrific boss at the law firm is the one who killed her! And all of this thanks to Phoebe being run over by a hot dog cart ...
