Mellow Summers is back to her usual sleuthing with her friends. After solving one murder with the help of a ghost, Rachel, she thought with Rachel gone life would return to normal. When Timothy showed up saying he had been murdered, Mellow knew that was not to be. There were a number of thefts going on in town and The Candle Shoppe was one of the businesses hit. Mellow knew she must go to the Pen Mill's Estate, which is said to be haunted, to find the answers.

I just cannot say enough about the M

I read the first one and loved it too. My kind of book. Funny and with a mystery. I don't believe in ghosts but if I see one hope it's like Rachel and Tim!!!
Rachel (aka Ms4Tune)
This is my first (first-read) giveaways and I was really excited to receive it and get started!! Frogs, Snails, and a Lot of Wails is the second short story in the Mellow Summers Series.

In this book Mel is visited by a new ghost, Timothy, who was murdered and heard about Mel from Rachel (the ghost from book 1). While trying to find out about Timothy's death Mel, along with her housemate Jackie and boyfriend Greg, discover that it maybe linked to a number of thefts that are happening in the loca
Opening Sentence - My name is Mellow Summers. In case you aren't already aware, I have gained a bit of a reputation as a sleuth who speaks to ghosts.

Review -

I received this book for a honest review from the author. This book is the 2nd installment in the Mellow Summers series, and takes place not long after the first one ended. This one starts with Mellow going on spring break and hoping to have a nice relaxing week, at least that's what she wanted. Mellow is a girl next door type who you can't
Reviewed on Lili Lost in a Book

Mellow thought her days of talking to ghosts was in the past. Boy was she wrong! Thanks to Rachel's recommendation, Timothy comes to Mel's apartment claiming to have been murdered and wanting her help to solve the murder. She concedes, somewhat reluctantly, only to later realize that there is more to this mystery than just murder.

Frogs, Snails, And A Lot Of Wails was a lot of fun, just like the last one! But I have to admit that the mystery itself was kind of meh f

Disclaimer: The fact that I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review has not affected my rating.

Frogs, Snails, and A Lot Of Wails continues where Sugar & Spice & Not So Nice leaves off - Mellow has a steady relationship with Greg, a healthy friendship with Jackie, and still has hilarious friends like Tiny. Only this time, another ghost (with the recommendation from Rachel!) comes for her help.

Everything I loved about the first book - its humor, readability, and lighthea

Shelves: first-reads
I hate to give any negative criticism, but I felt the book was a little bit jumbled. We never get to know the ghost Timothy other that he was a geek and can show himself to people or not or what happened after the classroom fiasco? Also I am not sure what purpose Jeremy had and how come he turned into a stalker and what happened to him? If you have not read the first book you won't know some of the characters that pop up and how come they are friends. Especially since Tiny took the neighbors Piz ...more

Like the previous book in this series the only thing i found wrong with it was the missing 'l' in words like all or i'll ect. Loved the story and timothy cracked me up, a ghost afraid of ghosts too funny. Will definetly be willing to read more from McNulty. Could be the next nancy drew for me.
