Spotlight: Spirit in Tow by Terry Segan


Welcome to my blog. Today I have a cozy paranormal mystery with a kickbutt and funny protagonist. 

Happy reading!

Spirit in Tow
Author: Terry Segan
Genre: Paranormal Mystery
Heat level (if over PG13): PG13


Marni Legend is about to publish her thirteenth novel. Gus Zuckerman has been hanging
around since his death in nineteen-ninety-five. With her deadline looming and her recently
deceased mother refusing to move on, can Marni dispatch both spirits and still have time for

Armed with sarcasm and a warped sense of humor, her innate ability to stumble into awkward
situations lands Marni in the midst of a car theft ring. As her circle of friends becomes populated
with felons and possible murderers, the lines blur around whom she can trust.

Juggling a hot new beau with one hand and rekindling an old flame with the other, she may need
to put on the brakes with one. Should she pick the probable criminal who may know Gus’s fate
or play it safe with the sweetheart from her past? She’ll need more than her special abilities and
quick wit to navigate the twists and turns of this paranormal mystery.

Peek between the pages...

The usual cadre of fishermen dotted the docks. If I boldly stepped onto the ship, would they
know I didn’t belong? Could one be a sentry in disguise? I sauntered past, trying to catch a
glimpse of any crew hanging about. The boat was in complete darkness.

Gus waited on my favorite perch. “It’s about time you showed up. Why aren’t you in all
black so nobody can see you? God, you look like an amateur.”

“Perhaps because I am an amateur. I’m not the one with a criminal record.” I sat beside him.
“Who says I got a record? I ain’t never been locked up.”

It never occurred to me he’d never been caught. Maybe I should have consulted him—had
he bothered to show up earlier. “This way I blend in with the tourists. If anybody comes, they’ll
think nothing of a woman enjoying the fresh air.”

“You got a lot to learn.”

Breaking and Entering 101 wasn’t a class I wanted to take. “Enough about my lack of
burglary skills. Go check the boat, and tell me if anybody is aboard.”

“Okay, okay. Stop barking orders.” He disappeared.

I tapped my foot on the wooden dock, concentrating on the staccato noise. It soothed my
racing mind as it conjured all the things that could go wrong. My plan had two parts—break in
and don’t get caught. Simple, right?
