Everything to make it an engaging Halloween treat! We are introduced to a delightful pair of house renovators Jack Young and Juniper Palmer who are ex-lovers and partners in Spirited Construction, a company best known for purchasing old “ghostly looking” homes, renovating to former glory, and flipping for a good profit. They have just purchased an old Victorian in Bohemian Lake, dubbed The Doctor’s House, rumored, possibly substantiated by unexplained events, to be haunted. Next, we discover the details surrounding the murder of the doctor’s wife who many say was by the doctor himself, and that this year’s Halloween will be the hundred-year-old anniversary of that tragic event. Then, with renovations underway, Jack and Junie have agreed to loan out the house and help with preparations for the Halloween Ball, the historical society’s grand fundraiser. The rumors of the house being haunted and the apparition having recently appeared may greatly improve the chances that this year’s Ball will be a better success than the past few. Last, when a body shows up in a mysterious trunk reminiscent of the hundred-year-old murder, Junie, Jack, a cast of friends, and a new detective work to find a killer uncovering secrets galore.Along with a marvelous mystery in this page turner, this story weaves the ins and outs of renovated homes along with learning more about the history and dynamics in the relationship between Jack and Juniper—former lovers, but oddly still connected. Is there a redo in their future? I highly recommend this book, and am eager for another adventure. It is great fun that Rachael revisits the setting of Bohemian Lake (mentioned as Jack’s hometown) and some character and business connections from her Penning Trouble series which recently released book one “Murder, She Floats” and will soon release in November book two “Murder, She Slopes.” I highly recommend checking out those delightful books about local Private investigator ‘Lucky Penny.’"Disclosure: A review copy of this book was sent to me by the author/publisher. All of the above opinions are my own.”

    Cookies, Corpses, and the Deadly Haunt by Rachael Stapleton is a possibly paranormal, cozy mystery with a dash of humour and romance and tonnes of mouth-watering desserts!The story is about Juniper and fellow house-flipper, former fiancé and current crush Jack, who buy homes, refurbish them and resell them for a profit. The two go to Jack's hometown, where they acquire a property known as The Doctor's House, famed to have been built by a doctor, who later killed his wife and himself in the house Cookies, Corpses, and the Deadly Haunt by Rachael Stapleton is a possibly paranormal, cozy mystery with a dash of humour and romance and tonnes of mouth-watering desserts!The story is about Juniper and fellow house-flipper, former fiancé and current crush Jack, who buy homes, refurbish them and resell them for a profit. The two go to Jack's hometown, where they acquire a property known as The Doctor's House, famed to have been built by a doctor, who later killed his wife and himself in the house. The townspeople also want to host a Halloween ball at the house. However, after acquiring the property, Juniper discovers the body of the mayor's daughter, Kaitlin.While working at the house, Juniper often hears music coming from an unknown source and glimpses the lady in white, whom some townspeople claim is Veronica, the Doctor's wife.Although the dead body appears at around chapter seven, the setting of the stage is not boring but rather interesting and fun, giving the reader a good feel of the setting and the characters. "It was a dark-haired woman in a light lace dress creeping up the mansion's front steps. A gush of wind sent fallen leaves dancing down the steps around her. She was pale as a ghost." In addition to the mystery, Juniper continues to suffer from jealousy as her business partner, Jack is getting married soon to none other than "Sally Big Boobs".Apart from Juniper, there is Pike, who co-jointly owns the bakery with Lulu who owns the neighbouring clothes store. Together, they named the business "Cookies and Corsets". The café's wicked assortment of desserts had me drooling as I read.Because it's a small town, there are a lot of relatives in the story, which boggled me sometimes, especially with the non-recurrent characters. I felt like I needed a family tree.There were a lot of characters I liked in Cookies, Corpses, and the Deadly Haunt, such as Pike, Officer Cody, Juniper, and Lulu.The romance in the novel was fun to read and clean. It also added a bit of awkwardness and humour for the characters.However, a problem I had with the book was that, and I can only assume this, the book was at some point written in first person then changed to third person (or vice versa). The book is mostly narrated in the third person; however, there were some instances when J. suddenly switched to first then back to third. It was just weird and interrupted the narrative. Especially since it occurred frequently, once even switching between first and third in the same sentence. This cut my review by one whole star. (Reviewer update: I was just informed that the copy I had received for the blog tour was an Advanced Reader's Copy (ARC) and that the final and updated version of Cookies, Corpses, and the Deadly Haunt is devoid of the above problem, raising my overall rating to 4 stars). I like how Stapleton kept me wondering about the paranormal aspect of the story throughout.

    COOKIES, CORPSES AND THE DEADLY HAUNT by Rachael StapletonThe First Haunted House Flippers Inc. MysteryJuniper Palmer and her business partner/ex-boyfriend Jake have just bought a glorious Gothic Revival house to flip in Jake's hometown. The spooky looking house known as The Doctor's House has a tragic history and everyone knows it's haunted. Juniper and Jake decided to lend the house to the local historical society for their annual Halloween Ball, made all the more special as it's the 100 year COOKIES, CORPSES AND THE DEADLY HAUNT by Rachael StapletonThe First Haunted House Flippers Inc. MysteryJuniper Palmer and her business partner/ex-boyfriend Jake have just bought a glorious Gothic Revival house to flip in Jake's hometown. The spooky looking house known as The Doctor's House has a tragic history and everyone knows it's haunted. Juniper and Jake decided to lend the house to the local historical society for their annual Halloween Ball, made all the more special as it's the 100 year anniversary of the murder of the Doctor's wife. Restoring historic homes was difficult enough, but now Juniper has begun hearing music and seeing a woman in white. Not only that she has to deal with her feelings towards Jake, who is now engaged, and the machinations of the Patone family. What else could happen?This first book in the Haunted House Flippers Inc. Mystery series introduces us to a small community of interesting characters which have a lot of backstory and interconnectedness, which is not surprising as some of these characters also exists in other books by the author. Yet the characters are not very well developed despite that history and most come off as either stereotypical or flat. There are kernels of fascinating aspects to many of the characters which will hopefully grow in future books.I really enjoyed the house flipping aspect to the book. Descriptions of the architecture, Victorians are a personal favorite, and the restoration work are engaging and done well. In addition, the history of the house, the story of the doctor and his wife, is intriguing and a wonderful premise.There were several formatting errors, for which I will not fault the author and hopefully are corrected in future editions. The most glaring came from a switch in point of view from third person to first and back again. Better editing and formatting will certainly provide a more compelling read.A haunted history and a gloriously Gothic home brings characters together as they try to solve a modern day murder. COOKIES, CORPSES AND THE DEADLY HAUNT is a breezy read perfect for the Halloween season. FTC Disclosure – The publisher sent me a digital ARC in the hopes I would review it.

    Juniper is a classic, feisty female character in this wonderful story. The twists and turns kept me guessing who the culprit was, but Rachael Stapleton was able things appropriated confused until near the end.I was given an ARC by the author; however the review is mine and mine alone.

Juniper Palmer was touring The Doctor's House to see if she and her ex-boyfriend Jack Young and partner in Spirited Construction might be interested in buying it to flip. The rumors of it running off potential buyers with hauntings not with standing. All Juniper could see was the potential of the home beneath the grime and neglect. The more she saw the more she wanted the home, not to flip but for herself. Juniper knows she and Jack were meant to have the home and decides to take the offer the smarmy realtor is presenting. Soon they are knee deep in repairs. Preparing the old mansion for the upcoming Halloween Bash. The only fly in the ointment is the condescending Kaitlyn Patrone and her little dog who tracks in mud and does his business where ever he wants. When Kaitlyn goes missing and turns up dead, stuffed into a mysteriously appearing trunk in the attic, suspicion falls on Junipers best friend Pike. Juniper is quickly deep into investigating to clear Pike and find the killer before the Halloween Fundraiser, which Kaitlyn's family insist go ahead as scheduled, hopefully preventing another death, perhaps even her own.Funny quirky characters, dialog that will have you chuckling and a mystery that will have tingles going up and down your spine. This fun mystery will leave you in anticipation for the next book so that you can see where, Juniper will go next and if she will finally have enough gumption to set about winning back Jack. The chemistry is there and seethes waiting for a chance to explode on both sides.My rating of "Cookies, Corpses and the Deadly Haunt - Haunted House Flippers Inc.

    Cookies, Corpses, and the Deadly Haunt is the first book in a new series by Rachael Stapleton. The premise is two exes who've built a very successful house flipping company. Jack and Juniper have just purchased a mansion in Jack's home town and are working on getting the mansion fixed up and ready for resale when they are asked to host a Halloween bash. It seems that the house is haunted by the wife of a doctor murder many years ago and stuffed in a trunk in the attic. Jack and Juniper give the Cookies, Corpses, and the Deadly Haunt is the first book in a new series by Rachael Stapleton. The premise is two exes who've built a very successful house flipping company. Jack and Juniper have just purchased a mansion in Jack's home town and are working on getting the mansion fixed up and ready for resale when they are asked to host a Halloween bash. It seems that the house is haunted by the wife of a doctor murder many years ago and stuffed in a trunk in the attic. Jack and Juniper give the green light to the bash and then a woman is found dead in the trunk.As the murder investigations heats up, another body is found that has Juniper questioning whether the town should hold a Halloween bash at all. However, the family insists the Halloween bash continue. When the ghost of the doctor's wife appears outside during the party, and another person is hurt, Jack and Juniper can't help but wonder if the legend is true. What transpires leads to the exposure of a lifetime of family secrets in a town where everyone knows everyone else and some lives will never be the same.The author did a great job with the character development and world building within Cookies, Corpses, and the Deadly Haunt. Jack, Juniper, and Juniper's friend Pike are very down-to-earth people with successful businesses that they enjoy. All of the characters interact well, even those that may be considered hard to get along with. The secondary characters are well-positioned within the pages and play their parts well.Part of the story does dance around a love triangle but it's not overwhelming or intrusive on the story. It's a nice addition used by the author to give the book realism. Many people have multiple suitors so it's not far fetched to think our cozy mystery heroines wouldn't be the same. For those concerned about triangles, there is a nice ending to the book and, while I rooted for both men in Juniper's life, I like where the author took her character.There are couple minor issues I had with the book, though they didn't really bother me - they were just things I noticed. There is an inconsistent point of view - the book flip-flops between 1st and third person. Also, some of the plot points were inconsistent. I can't describe the biggest one here because it would be a potential spoiler near the end of the book.Cookies, Corpses, and the Deadly Haunt is a fabulous cozy mystery. The plot was unique and interesting, keeping me engaged from the start. I enjoyed all of the characters, they were written with realism and are easy to connect to while reading. The story is fast paced and moves along nicely, not getting bogged down with useless filler or uninteresting details.I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.

Affectionately (NOT) referred to as "Big Boobs" by Juniper. There are a great many characters in this book and although I figured out "who dunnit" (at least one of them), I, in no way, figured it out for the right reason. There were so many red herrings, this book will keep you on your toes. The final answer had a couple of things that were way over the top, but I still enjoyed the book overall. Luckily, there is an HEA at the end, but it may or may not be whom you think. I loved Jack's dad and Juniper's friend Pike and hope they will each get HEA's in future books.

The characters are well described so the reader could easily identify their motivations – not all of them good. The twists and turns surrounding the mystery of a missing person -- who is later found dead in an attic trunk -- keeps the reader eager to continue to find the solution of who killed …. well, I won’t divulge that part. Grab a copy and read along! You’ll love it and hopefully be surprised at the solution to the mystery.

    Great story!!!! This book was funny and a treat to read. The setting, an old Victorian mansion with a history of murder sets the stage for murder and Halloween fun. The mansion is being restored by Juniper and Jack’s company. A partnership of work and past love. Or recent love? The characters are well fleshed out and very real. You will love this story of mayhem and murder and Halloween antics. I read an advance copy of this book and this is my honest opinion.
