Ghosts of Tsavo
A paranormal detective refuses to let danger, death and unwanted suitors inconvenience her in colonial Kenya: Armed with Victorian etiquette, a fully loaded walking stick and a dead husband, Beatrice Knight arrives in colonial Kenya desperate for a pot of tea and a pinch of cinnamon. But she’ll need more than that if she’s to unravel the mystery of the Ghosts of Tsavo without being eaten in the process. She must endure all manner of inconveniences while surviving the machinations of her best friend’s dashing godfather and the efforts of her safari guide to feed her to any lion willing to drag her away. What is a ghost-chasing widow to do?
This is a paranormal cozy mystery set in Africa during the Victorian times--not exactly my usual fare, but I enjoyed the paranormal bits, and I certainly didn't see the big twist coming near the end. In addition to the paranormal, the book offers lots of suspense and a strong female protagonist. I'm glad I decided to give this one a whirl.
