Celeste Jones has always dreamed of owning a gym. So, when the opportunity arises to buy Six-Packs for peanuts, she's thrilled. The fact that the previous owner claims the place is haunted doesn't bother her one bit--she doesn't believe in ghosts. With all her experience, she'll revive floundering Six-Packs!

Unfortunately, Celeste soon discovers that the gym IS haunted by a feisty ghost named Lennie. Lennie used to own the building that houses Six-Packs, and he was a slumlord. Lennie approaches Celeste and tells her he must solve five crimes before he can enter the next world to atone for being a terrible person in life.

At first, Celeste ignores Lennie's badgering ways. But then one of the gym members suffers a mysterious death--and only Lennie seems to know who's behind it. Celeste has no choice but to help Lennie solve his first crime or it's over for Six-Packs, leaving not only Celeste broke, but her employees without a job.

NOTE: Haunted Hardbodies is a stand-alone cozy murder mystery for people who like to laugh. The next book, Spooky Hardbodies, will be out in the middle of August 2016.

I struggled to get half way through it then finally gave up. It wasn't worth the time to finish it. Reads like it was written as a middle school English assignment.

This was the first book I have read by this author and I loved it. Wonderful storyline with great characters. The ghost in this story is completely different from any ghost I have ever read about in a book. As soon as you start reading you become charmed by the characters. This was a great cozy mystery and a fun and enjoyable read. This book has a little bit of everything - friendship, family, ghost, humor and a possible love interest. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
