This is a great start to the Afterlife trilogy staring Gardner's intrepid ghost investigator, the immensely likable Indigo Eady.Ghosts are disappearing in Sabina Shores and since Indigo is a celebrity in the town's paranormal community, she and her friends are drafted to help find the missing spirits. It was fun to learn more about the town's ghostly community and meet some new ghosts while getting to spend time with old favorites like Franny. I loved Gertrude's Garden, which is the center of the ghosts' social life and the scene of one of the most interesting dances I've ever read about. As usual, Gardner mixes humor with a few spine-tingling scares that leave us worried about the safety of our heroes. I can't wait to dive into book 2 of the series to find out what happens next.

I was already a big fan of Indigo and her friends, and this tale is the best one yet. Sabrina Shores is a tiny town, quaint and cozy, but it becomes much larger with the addition of the paranormal world. We are introduced to Gertrude's Garden, a nightclub for the spirits in the area. I love the club and the two gargoyles that run it. Wonderfully funny characters.We learn a lot more about the supernatural and the ghosts of the town. My favorite, Franny has a bigger role. I really enjoy seeing her and Indigo interact. With the whole new realm opened up, this novella deftly sets the stage for the next one.
