    I was in the mood for light, cozy mystery and this absolutely did the trick. It was light hearted and fun to read. Why did I give it 3 stars? Well for a few reasons. Primarily though because I found the title to be a little misleading. The title, as we know, is called "Ghost of a Chance" but there is practically nothing to do with ghosts in this story. I am going to give the author the benefit of the doubt though and assume that because this is a serial, there will be more interactions with ghos I was in the mood for light, cozy mystery and this absolutely did the trick.

The title, as we know, is called "Ghost of a Chance" but there is practically nothing to do with ghosts in this story. I am going to give the author the benefit of the doubt though and assume that because this is a serial, there will be more interactions with ghosts. I won't give anything away, but there was really only a few casual mentions; a possible ghost haunting her store; a few "cold spots" and continuous mentions of "I don't beleive in ghosts" but that was about it. Another issue I had was that it sort of felt like an episode of Murder She Wrote, with neon signs pointing to the clues and then a sudden "OMG I Know who did it, but I need your help to prove it" and of course the spontaneous confession. Now, don't get me wrong, MSW is one of my FAVORITE TV shows, but to me the ending felt super rushed. I had read another review where someone stated the felt like they missed some pages or chapters and I have to agree. The ending was just...WHAM.. here it is. There was hardly any actual investigating done by our heroine (aside from 2 or 3 conversations with potential suspects) and I didn't quite understand the point of going back and forth between Maggie's perspective and Martin's, since all he did was basically fawn over Maggie, his character didn't really add anything to the story, except of course as the love interest. I do feel like this was rushed and quickly put together, but I am going to hope that the rest of the series (should I choose to read it) will be a little more indepth and have a bit more character building. This is one of the things that draws me into a story (character development) and in this regard, this book was severely lacking. All in all, if you don't have high expectations, then this is a fabulous, quick and cozy mystery

    One of the worst cozies I've read this year. Mainly because the title/description is misleading. There is no ghost or supernatural element until like the last page. As if the author was like "oh yeah, I need to add a ghost real quick." There is a flickering light that adds nothing to the story/plot/mystery or whatever. The "romance" is too fast. There's no tension. The comma errors are ridiculous.

    Maggie Mulgrew moves from the US to England when she inherits her aunt's antique shop in the touristy town of Holmestead. A trip to an auction leads to her involvement in multiple murder. I wanted to like this. I really, truly did. Maggie, Martin and Spencer are all likable characters. Unfortunately the plot was super simplistic and super implausible. Why did Giles ask for money when he already had the jar? How do Maggie's knife throwing skills(!?) help her to throw a jar of oil?

Unfortunately the plot was super simplistic and super implausible. Why did Giles ask for money when he already had the jar? How do Maggie's knife throwing skills(!?) help her to throw a jar of oil? While her hands are tied, no less! Pointless characters randomly wander into the story (like the guy who attacks Maggie in the street, and the hippie vegan) then disappear, never to be seen again. Even the ghost adds little to the story. (To be fair, I'm not a "ghost" fan anyway, but really, what was the point of this ghost?) Why does Martin think Maggie won't like him if she finds out about his past? Why don't we ever find out about Martin's mysterious past? The story trundles along, then crashes with very little warning into a sudden, overcontrived confession scene And one last question- one of the "cute" aspects of the book is that dumb American tourists flock to Holmestead in the mistaken belief that there's a connection to Sherlock. But they all come on bus tours - so obviously there's some kind of back room deal -perhaps a kickback from Enid? - going on. Just what do those tours advertise? How do they market the town that has absolutely no connection to Sherlock Holmes as a viable tour stop? (I know - that question is pointless and silly, but it still bugged me.)

    I enjoyed this, but there were a few ???!!!??? moments that had me wondering. Why on earth was a Police constable investigating a murder? Its not the job of a police constable. Its not even the job of a police officer - its down to detectives to investigate such things. Murder is a level 3 offence and therefore a SIO would be appointed to lead the investigation, not a lowly constable who has NO training and isn't employed to do detective work. It irked me. And it was only when I was part way thro I enjoyed this, but there were a few ???!!!??? moments that had me wondering. Why on earth was a Police constable investigating a murder?

Murder is a level 3 offence and therefore a SIO would be appointed to lead the investigation, not a lowly constable who has NO training and isn't employed to do detective work. It irked me. And it was only when I was part way through the book that I noticed the US spellings - no problem with that, though I thought the author was British so it seemed very odd. A couple of US-speak moments grated: e.g. Spencer asks Martin : "Martin, can you sit in back?" Brits don't say that. This would have benefitted from a 'Brit' proof-read I think. Is the youngest son of an Earl called 'Lord'? I don't think so. 'The Honorable' is correct as far as I recall. And the title was misleading. 'Ghost'?? There were a few infrequent mentions of a ghost in the house but that was all, apart fr0m a minuscule scene right at the end which somehow seemed 'tacked on'. I enjoyed the plot and the characters, and the setting was good as was the 'cozy' mystery. I just wish this had been Britproofed. Edited: I have just read the appalling list of British 'slang' words at the back of the book! Does this author not know what 'slang' is? Bank Holiday is not 'slang', neither is 'football' or 'holiday' or 'fortnight' - good lord woman, these is the British language, not informal words. Get it right. meh

    Awful. Just terrible. And written by someone who seems to have no clue about Britain - or at least was writing it for Americans with no idea about the uk and didn’t bother to do anything about it before putting it on UK Amazon.

    Quite enjoyed this first in the series featuring Maggie Mulgrew, an American who six months earlier inherited an antique shop from her beloved aunt in a small village in England.

Nevertheless, I enjoyed Ghost of a Chance a great deal. Maggie's a good character. When a man she just met is arrested for the murder of a local man, Maggie begins to try and prove the man -- Martin -- was innocent. Martin's also an interesting character, and small bits of the story are told from his POV. I will definitely pick up the next in the series to see what happens with Maggie, Martin, and also with some of the secondary characters in the book.

    What a waste of time. I picked it up because of the ghost reference (cozy mystery with a ghost -- my cuppa). What a disappointment. If you're looking for excellent ghost stories, try Terri Reid; you won't be disappointed. The 'ghost in the title' gimmick (even pictured on the cover) was really thin, and very misleading. And what does the title even mean -- a chance at what?? The plot just didn't engage me (read "boring"), nor did the characters.

I was also distracted by the clunky writing style. Quite a few times I had to reread sentences to try to figure out just what she was trying to say, and usually just had to give up and continue reading. Oh, and the ending was ridiculous. Needless to say, I don't play on reading anything else from this writer.

    An interesting story with couple of murders but other than lights flickering on and off and an occasional sighting, there isn't a supernatural theme to this story. But the author might be setting the stage for the rest of the series and maybe there is more ghostly presence in future books. Anyways, a good cozy that would keep you guessing as to who the perpetrator is. The protagonists are fleshed out and interesting to get to know.

    Fun, unique and a good mystery. Maggie accidentally comes between others feuding over an antique jar. One of those is a professor she has a crush on. The story is complex with many motives and possibilities for characters to be the 'murderer'. I liked the characters and the story. I will be reading more from this series.

    "Not another one" I've lost count of the murder mysteries written by US authors that are set in the UK. None of them get things right. If only they sparkled like a Christie story. I couldn't finish this one. Cardboard characters and a banal mystery. I reached 45% and decided I didn't care what happened.

    I admit I started this book with the expectation I won't like it (paranormal stuff is just not my cup of tea) but needed a book with a ghost on cover - and I have only a couple of those plus this was rather short. So the great news is I loved this story, the characters and the realistic development. Unfortunatelly there were too many content holes/contradictions and typos/incorrect words (and I kept in mind it's BE, so I double checked them) which distracted me from the book.

    I finished this book in two days. It is very short, but a fun read. Red-haired Maggie inherits an antique shop with an apartment above and more from her great-aunt Irene in England. She moves to Holmestead, England, from America to a small village and strives to fit in. When she meets Professor Martin, a famous archaeologist, things begin to heat up between them. But first, she has to help him prove his innocence from a murder charge. A very enjoyable light mystery.

    Not too many spooks yet. This book popped up in my to be read list, and I decided to give it a try, even though I didn’t have a clue as to where it came from. I enjoyed the characters and the setting and had no trouble wishing I was Maggie, helping to solve the mystery. I’m going to look up the next book which is the best recommendation you can give.

    I hate it when the title of the book does not match with the story inside. This book had nothing to do with Ghosts except a few sentences here and there. This was a light and quick read, the characters in the book were likable but the mystery / plot was flat (bland, lack luster).

    . This was a quick and charming cozy mystery. The setting is in England, but the heroine, who owns the antique shop, is from the U.S. and is commonly referred to as a 'Yank'. This mystery includes the involvement of an archeology professor and some antiquities. There is some distraction from the grammatical errors. It was able to entertain and keep some suspense before the revelation of the mystery. I appreciate that it is a clean romantic read, able to stand on its own, and concludes with an H.E.A. .

She’s happy about everything to do with running the shop and loves living in the village.

The people aren’t quite sure what to think of Maggie, a newcomer, especially since her Aunt wasn’t well-loved. At least her childhood friend, Spencer, will be with her to help smooth the way. She’s got a real sense for antiques and an instinct that her Aunt always told her to follow. Of course, with Maggie, instincts can be trouble when it comes to people. Oh, one more thing, Maggie can see a ghost of a female relative who seems to want to help. In the first book, Ghost of a Chance, Maggie meets Professor Pembroke Martin. He is tracking down an apothecary jar stolen from the university where he works. His assistant and student sold it and it will be found at an estate auction. Maggie knows her stuff and bids on the beautiful box that should contain the jar. Martin tracks down Maggie and the box. When the jar does turn up in the hands of a dead man, Martin is suspected of murder. Maggie’s instinct tells her he’s innocent and she’ll find herself in danger trying to prove it. In this first book, Cate Dean introduces the village characters. I enjoyed this page turner with a ghost story, an actual ghost, murder, and a budding romance.

He is looking for an apothecary jar, stolen from him by a student aide. But three people end up bidding on the jar, and the price goes sky-high - too much for him. Later the jar is found in the hands of a murdered man, and Martin is the chief suspect. He and Maggie team up to find the real murderer. The ghost in the title is only mentioned, and doesn't really play a role - there is a small tie-in with Martin and the jar, and Maggie's continued insistence that she doesn't believe in ghosts. So very little paranormal story involved, other than lights flickering. Perhaps later in the series, a ghost will become more prominent. It was an enjoyable read, but I also had no trouble putting it down. I would probably read more in the series if the price is right.

    Definitely more my type of mystery; ghosts, antiques, murders, love at first sight; Maggie and Martin end up experiencing it all. Maggie Mulgrew's Aunt Irene knew her niece would be the best choice to leave her shop and home too.

The mystery itself was interesting although perhaps not as many clues were found to solve the mystery as usual. It almost seemed as if it was an accident that she remembered the most important thing (plus made the murderer look very clumsy)! But it has all the things I love about cozy mysteries. I definitely recommend and can’t wait to read the next one!

There is a small paranormal element which I hope the author expands on in future books. The development of the romance is good and the lady gets her man.

    Solid story with an interesting Heroine and hero. Perhaps not enough ghost(s) development just alluding to. I suspect that’s part of the plot development for future books in the series.
