Mignon F. Ballard. Angel Whispered Danger: An Augusta Goodnight Mystery. New York: St. Martin’s, 2003.

Kate McBride expected to spend her family reunion in the fictional mountain town of Bishop’s Bridge, N.C. dodging prying questions about her conspicuously absent husband and the state of their marriage. But the family is quickly distracted when the host’s housekeeper falls into a ravine and whispers just before she dies that she was pushed. Kate sets out to find the killer, helped by two unlikely accomplices: the friendly ghost Augusta Goodnight and her trainee angel Penelope. Their investigation leads them into the mysterious past of Kate’s uncle Ernest’s quirky estate, Bramblewood. This is one of a series of mysteries starring Augusta Goodnight, but so far this is the ghost’s first foray into North Carolina.
