Summary: When Maddie Kosloski’s career flatlines, she retreats to her wine-country hometown for solace and cheap rent. Railroaded into managing the local paranormal museum, she’s certain the rumors of its haunting are greatly exaggerated. But a new ghost may be on the loose. A fresh corpse in the museum embroils Maddie in murders past and present.

With her high school bully as one of the officers in charge, Maddie doubts justice will be served. When one of her best friends is arrested, she’s certain it won’t be.
Maddie grapples with ghost hunters, obsessed taxidermists, and the sexy motorcyclist next door as outside forces threaten. And as she juggles spectral shenanigans with the hunt for a killer, she discovers there truly is no place like home.  (Taken from Goodreads)

Thoughts:  Lately I find myself addicted to cosy mysteries and I find myself picking up any that sound even remotely interesting.  I love reading them because they're easy to read and just a lot of fun.

The Perfectly Proper Paranormal Museum was no exception.  The story was really fun and interesting.  I feel like Kirsten Weiss did a good job of writing a story that kept me interested.  There were quite a lot of characters that I really liked throughout the book.

The setting of the town as a whole was definitely intriguing.  The town has a lot of wineries and there were also some interesting developments with buildings that I think would be interesting to see how they progress.

In terms of the mystery I have to say that I was a little surprised because it was not at all what I had guessed.  I did feel that the explanation at the end felt like it was missing a couple of things that I just wondered about.

Overall, I really enjoyed The Perfectly Paranormal Museum and I definitely had a lot of fun reading it.  I hope this series grows as I would definitely be interested in reading more books about Maddie's adventures with the Paranormal Museum.
