French Ghost by @corinnelabalme is a Book Series Starter pick #cozymystery #newrelease #giveaway

Title: French Ghost (Book 1: Paris Ghost Writer Chronicles)

Author: Corinne LaBalme

Genre: Cozy Mystery

Book Blurb:

Ghost-writer Melody Layne is stranded in Paris when the over-sexed but unloved French movie star who hired her to produce his memoir dies before the interviews begin. It’s a major financial relief when his enigmatic Spanish son re-hires her, but the seductive Carlos Ortega is strangely silent about his reasons for funding a feel-good bio about a father that he clearly despised. There's enough romance in the air for Melody to ignore this apparent paradox… at least until she uncovers a hidden cache of very personal death threats addressed to the actor. Some of them were mailed from Madrid…


I’ve watched enough CSI to know that you can get DNA trace from anything that makes lip contact.

Whose side was I on here?

The sexy Spanish skinflint who was paying me?

The Swedish supermodel who hated me?

The dead creep who hired me in the first place?

My side.

That’s whose side I was on. Trying not to overthink

the ethical issue, I slipped the straw into a plastic bag.

I wasn’t sure what I’d do with it yet.

However, when it came to information, I felt it was

better to ‘have’ than to ‘have not’.
