The name’s Winterbottom. Crispin Alistair Winterbottom. But you can call me Win, ex-international man of mystery, current resident of Plane Limbo, and ghost attached to Stephania Cartwright.
For reasons unknown to us, Stevie can hear me, perhaps because she’s also an ex. An ex-witch, in her case, having lost her powers shortly before our first fateful meeting, upon her return to her hometown of Ebenezer Falls, Washington. Now, with my guidance—and help from her familiar, Belfry, and the spectral form of my old Russian adversary, Arkady—Stevie spends her days as the town medium, with a little light mystery-solving on the side.
The latter of which I’d much prefer she’d avoid, considering the constant danger in which Stevie finds herself. You see, the longer we’re together, the deeper and more complex my feelings become for my mini-spy. And the closer she comes to discovering the few secrets I’m still trying to keep…for both our sakes. But when a precious life is on the line, even I know there’s no stopping my dove from going all in to solve the latest mystery that lands on our doorstep—literally.
Along with Arkady and Bel, I’ll assist her in this latest endeavor. Because there’s more than one precious life on the line…including the one I can’t live without.

Most of the novels are told from Stevie’s POV, but I enjoyed having Winterbottom take a lead in this one. It was fun experiencing “life” on the other plane through his eyes and those of his former enemy/now bestie Arkady. He was front and center because this time the mystery was his. An unexpected package was delivered that turned everything upside down as they misfit little group had to follow the clues to solve the mystery surrounding it. I love all these books, but I especially loved getting to learn more about Winterbottom’s past
While each book has its own, complete mystery, I love the overall story and character development that happens. These books are just so much fun to delve into!
