Dead and Breakfast by Kate Kingsbury. Published by Crooked Lane

Melanie West and her grandmother, Liza have purchased a rambling old, and supposedly haunted house on the Oregon coast with plans to convert it into a Bed and Breakfast. Melanie, still smarting after an ugly divorce, is glad for something to occupy her time and her mind. One day, while stripping wallpaper, Melanie and Liza uncover an old closet that harbors a terrible secret – a skeleton. It turns out that the skeleton belongs to the wife of the previous owner, and while the police are investigating, Melanie and Liza cannot continue their renovations. With the day of their grand opening looming, they begins to worry they won’t be ready to open on time. There’s also the problem of the ghost of a man who seems to laugh from inside the walls – friendly but disconcerting. When a woman is found dead on the beach near the end, Melanie begins to freak out – the victim looks just like Melanie. This is a fun cozy with a friendly ghost, a handsome and brave cop and two lively heroines
