    The Murder of Shakespeare's Ghost by Anna Celeste Burke is the second book in the Seaview Cottages Cozy Mystery series. I couldn't have been happier to sit down and read the afternoon away. The ladies of G.O.L.D. and Charly's Angels are once again on the case as they investigate a spooky intruder at Shakespeare's Cottage.

I love the banter and humor when Carl and Joe are with the ladies. The plot is quickly paced with just enough twists to keep me guessing and turning the pages. The characters are becoming well developed now and I really enjoy spending time with these likable ladies and gentlemen. I also enjoy Detective Hank Miller and hope to get to know more about him in the following books as it looks like there may be a romance brewing between him and Miriam. The reveal was intriguing and unexpected as there was so much more than just a murder involved in this story. This book will not disappoint cozy mystery fans.

Anna Celeste Burke always writes such clever and engaging stories, and this new series has leapt to my top ten for 2019. She grabs the reader with immediate action and never lets go. Robyn Chappell, a resident of the Seaview Cottages staying in the Shakespeare Cottage, is convinced that the ghost of the bard himself is living there, too. The police think she's crazy, so “Who ya gonna call?” Grand Old Lady Detectives. The ladies quickly heads over to offer assistance, but, when they arrive to Carl and Joe chasing an eerie figure down the street, blood spots on Robyn’s porch, Neely’s story of being knocked down by someone, and the kitchen pantry in total disarray, something more corporeal seems to be at play. Robyn has had other break-ins and decides to officially hire G.O.L.D. to discover why she's being targeted. But, it's the discovery of a dead body and human remains that are of the most importance calling into question the owners and residents and putting the G.O.L.D. girls in peril. The mystery, often with a dead body or two, current or decades old, is always cleverly laid out with legitimate and red herring clues pointing to more than suspect challenging my inner detective topped off with a “Wow!” ending. But it's the well-developed characters, often at a mature age, with which I can identify. I enjoy the first-person narrative that vicariously puts me, as the reader, in the middle and a generational perspective that I understand or have personal experience. It's good to see a glimmer of romance woven through the drama, too. Anna’s writing style is excellent, entertaining and engaging, but I’d like to mention that I enjoy the chapter titles, and in this book she adds to the chapter intros quotes from Shakespeare that illustrate the drama. I love it…you've got to join in. Also, The Bard would have been deliciously inspired by these easy-to-follow recipes: Strawberry Cake, Baked Macaroni & Cheese, Beef Tenderloin with Red Wine, Anchovies, Garlic, and Herbs, Baked Ziti with Vegetables, and Triple Ginger Cookies.

Red herrings, plus twists and turns, are abundant, and multiple suspects keep the reader engaged and guessing until the reveal which came as a surprise to me. As always, Ms. Burke has given readers a clean read with delightful and three-dimensional characters and vivid descriptions that made me feel like I was involved with the action along with the characters. I recommend this series to readers who enjoy well-crafted whodunits. Miriam Webster, a recent widow, moved into Hemingway Cottage, the retirement home her husband purchased, which is located in an active adult retirement community for the fifty-five plus crowd on California’s Central Coast, with Domino, her intelligent and high-spirited Dalmatian. Until recently, Miriam, who is only fifty years old, was worried her age or the fact that her husband was deceased would force her out of her home, but her friends helped her resolve that problem. After helping to solve a recent murder, Miriam, Charly Parker, Marty Monroe, Midge Gaylord, and Neely Conrad, who all reside in the Seaview Cottages community, decided to band together as the “Grand Old Lady Detectives” (a/k/a G.O.L.D.). Carl Rodgers and Joe Torrance, who also live in the community, have dubbed themselves as Charly’s Angels and help with investigations. Their first paying client is Robyn Chappell, the current tenant of the Shakespeare Cottage, who believes the Bard of Avon’s ghost is haunting the cottage. While the team thinks a ghost being the cause of all the strange occurrences Robyn reports happening is unlikely, they find evidence and see things that make them wonder if it’s a possibility. When a murder victim mysteriously appears in Robyn’s pantry, the inept and insulting deputy sheriff, Darnell Devers, is involved in the investigation, but fortunately, the lead detective is Hank Miller, who is both personable and competent. The G.O.L.D. team delves into the history of the property and discovers the owners have more than a few skeletons hidden in their closets. Domino and her pal, Emily, Charly’s Jack Russell terrier, find a sinkhole near Robyn’s cottage and the “stick” Domino finds and refuses to give up, turns out to be a human bone. Hank is attracted to Miriam and wishes she and her friends would steer clear of the investigation, but accepts the fact that that isn’t going to happen. He readily admits the G.O.L.D. team provides useful information that helps him, but worries about the situations they get themselves into. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    This was a delightful cozy mystery, filled with relatable Shakespearean quotes and interesting characters in the form of Grand Old Lady Detectives (G.O.L.D.). The amateur sleuths have been hired by Robyn, one of the residents at Seaview Cottages, to investigate the strange occurrences in her cottage. She is convinced that Shakespeare's Ghost has been coming in and moving things around.

At first, they are skeptical, but after receiving a late night call, the ladies of G.O.L.D. and their friends, Joe and Carl, are actual witnesses to this specter, fresh from vandalizing the cottage. Despite the police warning them to stay out of the investigation, they are determined to get to solve this, even more so when a dead body shows up in the cottage. I really enjoyed this story, filled with funny quotes and even funnier animal companions. The mystery kept the reader in suspense until the end. I look forward to reading further adventures of the G.O.L.D. group. Disclosure: I am voluntarily reviewing this book and all opinions are strictly my own.

Leave it to Miriam’s dog Domino to find the missing connection that begins to unlock the old history of the DeVoss house, and the tale gets “curiouser and curiouser” How does Anna Celeste Burke do it? Write several series of books; keep the plots in line; and come up with twists that keep you guessing almost to the end. This is why I personally jump for joy when I see this author’s pre-release notice. I highly recommend these books. 5/5

Well Miriam doubts it is a real ghost until she spys him. Of course the police detective is not very happy that these old ladies are trying to solve this case--so they get a bit sneaky which includes plying them with Miriam's cookies and other assorted goodies. It seems Miriam is a really good baker!! You can find some of her recipes at the back of the book-but I digress! Meanwhile there is a smuggling ring which the police are trying to stop--- Does the mystery of the haunting get solved by the police or the women-with the help of two of the men who live in the community? Maybe if they had listened to the cat--and Domino, who is a very intelligent dog---- Plenty of twists and turns and laughs and a couple of "will they get out of this" minutes. All in all you are going to love not only this book but the entire series.

    Good mystery The who and why are kept hidden to the end, which is what i like best in mysteries. The characters are developing well. I would have given five stars but there were times when the speaker in a group was not identified. It did not detract from the story, however.

    G.O.L.D. Meets BARD Maybe it's been a bit long between books. Although I enjoyed the story, the Shakespeare ghost entry & exit puzzles seem less so from the beginning. Things being moved around may indicate someone has been there but with no apparent clue to how they got in & out, underground was the only logical way. The interaction between the characters was satisfying and, though one killer was probable, the second one was a surprise. One last thing I will say is the decline in the level of pro G.O.L.D.

Mistakes in spelling and grammar have always popped out at me. Perhaps techno!ogy, with its predictive text & the software guarantees to check spelling & grammar plus the ultra sensitive keyboards, I see an increase in all the books I read within the last few years Since. This is not necessarily the author's fault. We've all seen the comic horrors of autocorrect. Even in this short review, I have to double-check not only my errors but the predictive text as well. Since Kindle rarely uses page numbers but locations & percentage read, it's hard to point out typos to the authors that ask for such. Enough kvetching. The story is well worth reading & I am anxiously awaiting the next.

    Puzzling Secrets, Ghostly Apparitions, & Irrational Thugs Altogether intriguing and entertaining, Ms. Burke has written another delightful mystery filled with eccentric and lovable characters, a charming and interesting setting, and a mystery with a resolution revealed with perfect timing. I enjoyed every moment, lived the tale as if I were there, and laughed often at the antics of some of the characters. Kudos to Ms. Burke.

    Another Good One I have found another good series! The characters in this series are older, mature, and it make them interesting. It proves that just because they are older and retired, they can’t do anything. These people are SMART!! Only one that isn’t smart is Deputy Deavers!! Ha ha!! Love the recipes in the book as well! Just wish they were printable from my iPad..

    G.O.L.D. (Grand Old Ladies Detectives) Almost as good as the first book! It is easy to come to love the ladies of Sea view Cottages Writers Circle. They are far from old, with lots of energy and willingness to help each other. They share intelligence and courage. Can't wait to read the next in series. G.O.L.D.

    Loved this cozy! This cozy has an amazing cat of characters mostly over the age of fifty-five. Unless they're dogs or cats. They live in the Seaview Cottages addition where all the cottages are named after famous authors. There's a good mystery here with laugh it loud moments along the way. I enjoyed every bit of it and recommend it to all cozy mystery lovers. Loved this cozy! This cozy has an amazing cat of characters mostly over the age of fifty-five. Unless they're dogs or cats.

    This book was as much fun as the first one! It is nice to read a series whose main characters are closer to my own age, as in Senior! Cozy readers are sure to enjoy the humor, as well as the mystery. Another win for Anna Celeste Burke!

    Robyn calls saying she is locked in the bedroom and Shakespeare ghost was in the hallway. The G O L D ladies are on it, to find a dead ghost. To make matters worse they have to call in the detective because of it.The characters are good. They is a lot of twist, and humor along the way, and enjoyable to read.

    This book is the 2nd book in the series of Seaview Cottage Cozy Mystery it was so good. I was so surprised in the beginning the way the book started. It had me guessing if the characters were on the right track all the way thru the book. I love the way Anna writes all of her series of books. She hit this one up the right field line and scored 3 runs!
