Ghosts and and bad guys and family, oh my!

Between Freezer Dude, Fake Thomas, Enzo's ex-girlfriend, a renewed courtship, a family that likes to scare each other, and a possible new career, what's a girl to do? Gianna certainly doesn't know, but she needs to make sense out of all of it before it all drives her crazy.

With a knack for combining humor and cozy mysteries, Ms. Fischetto takes the reader on a hilarious ride where multiple threads gradually narrow down to a more manageable number. This

Another great read!

Truly loved this book. Great job Jennifer Fischetto. It had me laughing out load in quite a few places. I can't wait to start the next book in the series

Love this series & this author.

This is the 2nd book in the Dead by the Numbers Series. The main character Gianna Mancini is back and still seeing ghosts. This time she is trying to help her brother make detective by using the ghosts to help solve the murder of her neighbor down the block Thomas Sterling. As usual, nothing is as it seems. Join Gianna, her friends and family in this wonderful mystery. You do not need to read book one to read this one, but I highly recommend it.

Two Ghosts & a Love Song is a fun paranormal cozy mystery. I really enjoyed the first book so I had to grab this one. The book is written in first person which can be irritating in places but I can't imagine it working any other way. Gianna's ability to see ghosts and help them cross just feels right to her until she encounters a ghost from her past. This one isn't lost or seeking help to cross, he has come back from the other side and he wants to stay here. Although Gianna doesn't believe he ca ...more

2ghosts and a love song (dead by the numbers mysteries book 2)

Gianna is back with her funny eccentric family and ger gorgeous man Julian for another ghostly murder mystery.
I'm pretty sure I love this one more than the first book in this funny series but it's a close call. Gianna is awesome, her ability to talk to ghost certainly keeps the story entertaining and I love her whity sarcastic laid back approach to life. I also enjoyed this second book more as we see Gianna come to accept her relation

Love, love, LOVE this series - yes, I realize this is only book two, but it is just that good! If you enjoy funny chick lit with witty dialogue and the paranormal, you have found a winner in this series.

Gianna sees ghosts, talks with them, and assists them. Her family knows this, but doesn't like it. Her sort of boyfriend is still coming to grips with it, and the local police just think she's nuts.....and they don't even know about the ghosts. So when a murder victim starts hanging around her be

I received this book in return for an honest review, although I've never heard of this author, I'm so glad I agreed even though I never read book one! How does two ghosts ruin Gianna Macini's love life? A month earlier she helped her sister avoid a murder rap, and since she died in her parent's deli freezer for a moment she saw and helped ghost move on. That was when she was eight and people thought she had an imaginary friend. Now, she was caught up in Thomas Sterling and Freezer Dude problems! ...more

When Gianna was 8 years old she died for one minute and 32 seconds. That changed her life forever because then she was able to see ghosts. Now as an adult Gianna finds herself helping the ghost of the newly departed Thomas Sterling by consoling his fiancee. Things take a sudden turn when she finds out some surprising information about ghost Thomas and Freezer Dude, a creepy old ghost that likes to jump into bodies of the living. This is Dead by the Numbers Mystery #2 and after getting snippets o ...more

What is stranger than helping dead people pass to the next life? Helping them solve murders.

You meet dead people a lot but when they need your help to solve their murders that is just to weird. If you have a family who doesn't judge you but helps when they can you are lucky but when you have a great boyfriend who not only stands by you and helps you well you can't lose and neither than the dead you are there to help. This is a fun series and they stand alone but you will want to really get to kn

Absolutely loved this one! Great job blending genres.

Gianna has her hands full with 2 ghost, one is very "ghost" experienced and the new one is full of secrets but just lost the love of his life so he desperately needs Gianna's help. Her life is full of family tradition, mystery solving, an understanding man seeking a 2nd chance and the loving sibling pranks that are just "laugh-out-loud" hilarious....

I really enjoyed this book. I got caught up in the story right at the beginning and found it fun to follow all the twists and turns of the story. I definitely need to go back and read the other books in the series - and eagerly await the next story. Keep them coming! All the characters were fun and ... sassy. And the fact that I was born and bred on Long Island (over on the North Shore - in Oyster Bay) added an extra delight to everything for me.

I really enjoyed this book, even better than the first one! I received this book free in exchange for an honest review, and I wasn't sure if I would like it. Since sometimes starting a series out of order isn't helpful for reviewing, I decided to purchase and read Book 1 first. I'm really glad that I gave this series a try! I liked the first book, but enjoyed this one even better! It's a fun, cozy mystery with a little romance -- a great combination and a quick read! ...more
I love mysteries with a paranormal twist to them! This series is really good and very well written too! I love Gianna, she is fun and easy to relate to, even the fact that I am from the South and she is talking about places I have never been. I like her boyfriend Julian, he is a good fit for her. I can not wait to read another of this series!

Originally called " Mini skirts, Mai Tais & Dead Guys" Two Ghosts and a love song is a much more suitable title. Gianna once again gets caught up in ghostly lies and intrigue. Falls deeper in love with her on again/ off again and stumbles into a new career. ...more
