From National Bestselling author Jennifer Fischetto comes a hauntingly humorous new series…
Gianna Mancini has chatted with ghosts most of her life. It’s never affected her much. Until now. The latest ghost in Gianna’s family-centric, boy-complicated, job-depleted world is Emma Tinsdale, a woman Gianna despises. Wanting Emma out of her apartment and her orbit, Gianna chooses to help her move on, but she doesn’t expect to come across poisonous jam, a vengeful cop, or a group of friendly clowns. When a relative is framed for Emma’s death, Gianna must dig deeper and faster to find out what really happened that fatal night on the beach. With help from her sister, her cop brother, and her ex-boyfriend, Julian, she gets close to figuring out the truth. But when the killer closes in, Gianna better watch her step unless she wants to become the latest member of the dearly departed.

My review: One Garish Ghost & Blueberry Peach Jam by Jennifer Fischetto
There are some funny moments in this story for sure. Lots of characters, I like Gianna Mancini, would not mind seeing some more of her in the future. Disappointed in some of the male figures in the book. I really want to say who and why but that might be too much.
The ghosts are fun and likeable. Keeps you guessing who the murder is and why they killed cupcake.
Gianna Mancini has moved back home. She has lived with a boyfriend for almost a year in another state. Then they fought and she moved out. Now she is going to work for the family deli and live upstairs in the apartment. While she is moving in she notices a ghost. She can see and talk to them since she was a child.
Gianna family are funny. I like them. Her older sister Izzie is having issues with her husband. Enzo her brother is a cop and wants to be a detective. They are close. Her mother collects interesting things.
Gianna wants to help the ghost in her apartment murder be solved and she does some interesting things to check out Cupcake's work.
Gianna's romance I am not sure what I want her to do about it but I would like to see what happens next with them.
One scene I think is funny is almost to the end. I want to join Izzie and Gianna laughing so much they sit on the lawn.
I want to read the next book in the series and see what happens next to Gianna.
