Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week’s Can’t-Wait offering – Ghost Ups Her Game – Book 9 of the Bailey Ruth series by Carolyn G. Hart – release date, 4th August, 2020

After a busy morning dispatching emissaries from Heaven’s Department of Good Intentions to those in need, Bailey Ruth Raeburn is feeling flush with success. So when an urgent call for help comes through from her old hometown, she can’t resist taking on the mission herself. After all, what could go wrong? With the shouted warning of her boss, Wiggins – “Irregular! Problematic!” – ringing in her ears, she arrives to face a shocking scene: Professor Iris Gallagher leaning over the corpse of her colleague Matt Lambert, the murder weapon clutched in her hand. Bailey Ruth is only sent to help the innocent, but things are looking very black for Iris. With Wiggins breathing down her neck, and her old friend Police Chief Sam Cobb casting doubt on her every theory, Bailey Ruth must uncover the truth – or this could be the last trip to earth she’s ever allowed to make.

I am always on the look-out for a sub-genre of murder mysteries with a twist of something different, so I was delighted when I saw this one on Netgalley. And yes… I knew in advance I’d be crashing into the middle of a series, but it’s a hobby of mine – and over the years, I’ve found some wonderful authors and cracking reads. Hopefully this will be another delightful addition.

  1. Hopefully this is one of those series you can easily crash into! It sounds like fun, I also love murder mysteries with speculative elements😁

    • It does, doesn’t it? Because if authors didn’t give readers a chance to connect and catch up, then they are losing potential sales – and they generally don’t do that:).

  2. This sounds really good and perhaps this is a series I need to consider checking out. Stormi and I will need a new one for next year for our buddy read project so I should start looking now.

  3. Although I prefer reading a series in order, I am okay with jumping into a series in the middle. Like you, I have discovered some great series that way! It really depends on the genre or type of book though. I really like the sound of Ghost Ups Her Game. It sounds like a series I would really enjoy. I hope you enjoy it when you read it! Stay safe and well.

    • Yes – and that’s why I won’t give up jumping into series. I have found so many lovely authors and series that way, too. And I thought Ghost Ups Her Game sounded like fun – and I’m allll about fun in my reading if I can possibly manage it at present! I hope you, too, stay safe, Wendy:)
