Confessions of a Pirate Ghost by Jo-Ann Carson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Confessions Of A Pirate Ghost is a fun novella.
Taking a swim at night in the cold North-West Pacific wouldn’t have been Harley Davis’ first choice, but the art forger was in a spot of hot trouble, and it was a means of escaping a mobster. Desperately in need of warmth and shelter, she spots a light at a teahouse, but the occupants seem mysteriously elusive.
Owned by medium Azalea, the teahouse is also home to several ghosts. Always interested in a beautiful women, pirate ghost Three-Sheets decides to help. Whilst Harley charms the teahouse and its occupants, the mob want her back, but they’ve met an unusual opponent. Add to this mix a modern-day treasure seeker who is researching pirate loot, and you have a fun story.
I enjoyed the spiritual elements of this book and the teahouse setting added to the quirky feel of the characters. This is a quick read which is part of The Gambling Ghosts series.

Escaping from the clutches of a mobster, art forger Harley Davis dives off his yacht in the middle of the night and swims ashore at Sunset Cove, where the only light she sees comes from inside a teahouse that looks haunted. Soaking wet and shaking, she pauses at the door. No one in their right mind would enter such a creepy place, but she has no choice. Harley needs to hide.
Pirate ghost, Three-Sheets enjoys his extended life on earth, gambling and flirting with the ladies, but when he meets Harley, he discovers he wants more out of death than a good gambling hand.
As the charming Three Sheets woos Harley, her former boss puts a contract on her head.
What do you get when you mix a saucy thief, a pirate ghost and an angry godfather? Another fun Gambling Ghost story.
