Back in town, some guy stumbles into the Candle Shoppe, frantic. He comes up to Mel and tells her that someone is out to get him, that someone wants to kill him. And then, suddenly, he drops dead... Literally. Detective Shorts once again tells Mel to stay out of it... But does she listen? Of course not, she's Mel! Haha. She feels compelled to unravel this mystery. I mean, this guy specifically sought her out, that's strange in and of itself, so yeah this piqued her interest. She soon finds herself immersed in an urban legend about a ghost named Smiley that, if you see him, you'll find yourself facing imminent death.
This book was so much fun, not surprisingly! I especially loved Tiny! He is one of the most awesome characters ever! The nature of the murder was very interesting and intriguing and I could not wait to find out what the heck was going on... which is why I finished reading it in one sitting :)
I am officially addicted to this series! I Love that it's so fun and lighthearted and super short, yet mysterious and suspenseful!
