Gethsemane Brown is an African American classical musician/conductor. She takes a job as assistant musical director for a big orchestra in Europe. On the trip over, her luggage is stolen, her job was given away to the directors mistress and Gethsemane is left stranded in a little Irish village taking any job she can get. She is music director for an all boys school and house sitting for the house of her late musical idol and village celebrity. She finds that the house comes complete with the snarky ghost of it’s previous owner who convinces her to prove that he did not kill his wife and then commit suicide.
This book is AWESOME!!!! The characters are engaging, the story is very well written. The book is hard to put down. There is no shortage of twists and turns to the plot, and once the mystery is resolved, the book continues to evolve and then gets you to thinking, “I wonder where this will take me” and the book ends. NOOOOOOOO! I had no choice! I had to get book 2! VERY well crafted. Gordon is a masterful storyteller. I hope you give this series a try.
