Arden is an aspiring screenwriter with a cute Hollywood bungalow, a furniture restoration hobby and a cute neighbor. She also, it turn out, has a roommate, a sexy Italian actor who died in 1945 named Carlo.
Having a resident ghost that is both solicitous and devastatingly handsome is no hardship, until Arden discovers that Carlo’s story is darker than she thought. At this point, getting rid of her housemate becomes a priority, but to do so, she must find out how he died and why he is still sticking around.
Modern and vintage Hollywood collide in this amusing mystery book. Arden’s friends are hilarious (particularly her true-to-life writing group), and her sleuthing is very interesting. The ending is both thrilling and sweet at the same time.
