When one of the first guests at her Oregon coast B&B dies, it's up to Melanie West to find the in-house murderer.

With the arrival of six senior reading group members at the Merry Ghost Inn, the long-awaited Grand Opening week has finally begun for Melanie West and her grandmother, Liza. All is well with the Oregon coast-side B&B until Melanie's dog, Max, finds the dead body of one of their guests.

Everyone at the inn immediately falls under suspicion, including the innkeepers themselves. Melanie and Liza are not sure who they can trust, and the idea of cohabitating with a murderer is enough to send chills down anyone's spine. To make matters worse, the curmudgeonly town detective wants them to steer clear of the investigation but doesn't seem too inspired to solve the case in a timely fashion himself. To clear their own names and to avoid the blight on the inn's reputation that yet another dead body will bring, Melanie and Liza dive headlong into the murder investigation.

With a little help from their chuckling ghost, Melanie and Liza dodge the detective, tip-toe around their suspicious guests, and still serve up delicious Bed & Breakfast meals on time in Kate Kingsbury's delightful second Merry Ghost Inn mystery, Doom with a View.

Praise for Dead and Breakfast
"Kingsbury's crime-solving pair are wonderfully appealing, whether they are ferreting out the town's secrets or dealing with the grief in their own lives. Fans of M.C. Beaton's Agatha Raisin series will find lots of similarities here."

"[An] enjoyable series launch from Kingsbury."
--Publishers Weekly

"What could be more intriguing than spending the night in a creaky old bed-and-breakfast haunted by a chuckling ghost? A charming grandmother/granddaughter duo, unsettling small-town secrets, and a long-hidden skeleton at the Merry Ghost Inn add up to a winning debut for this ghostly cozy series."
--Juliet Blackwell, New York Times bestselling author of the Haunted Home Renovation series

"Dead and Breakfast is a page-turner from the first scene, where the about-to-open B&B unexpectedly becomes a crime scene. Melanie and her grandmother Liza are smart, believable, easy-to-like people and the writing is pitch-perfect. You'll want to book an immediate reservation for the Merry Ghost Inn. Better hurry-Kate Kingsbury's fine new series is about to get all booked up!"
--Susan Wittig Albert, New York Times bestselling author of Blood Orange and Bittersweet

"What's not to like about a laughing ghost? Dead and Breakfast is a spirited beginning to Kate Kingsbury's new Merry Ghost Inn series. More laughter to come."
--Carolyn Hart, New York Times bestselling author of Ghost Times Two

"Dead and Breakfast is an intriguing whodunit enriched with two plucky heroines opening a seaside bed and breakfast, a ghost with a delightful laugh, and a splash of romance. All the ingredients necessary for an entertaining red from start to surprising finish."
--Sally Goldenbaum, USA Today bestselling author of the Seaside Knitters Society mysteries

"Kate Kingsbury is a pro--and it shows in every witty line of Dead and Breakfast. West coast setting, B&B with a secret room and a skeleton. What's not to love? This book is so well done it almost reads itself. Treat yourself to the first in a new series--a must read."
--Carolyn Haines, USA Today bestselling author of Rock-A-Bye Bones

"A laughing ghost, a winsome dog, and a charming Oregon coastal village make the Merry Ghost Inn mysteries a place you'll want to visit again and again."
