Shades of Grayson by Diane Lewis

When Grayson Cleary crosses the Atlantic, he has his sights set on two prizes—one literary and one romantic.

Things are going well until a harmless favor for his girlfriend leads Grayson into a minor mystery that morphs into murder. And the evidence points toward him—either as the killer or the next victim.

With the police, a murderer, and the ghost of a dead writer all pursuing him, Grayson has only his author friends and one exceptional seeing-eye poodle to help him sniff out the killer and clear his own name.

But has the ghost appeared to bring his murderer to justice? Or has he come to guide Grayson to the other side?

“Grayson, M.J., Harrison, and the marvelous Oxford, combine to bring a delightful, whimsical and inventive story that will make you smile and have you guessing. Very likeable characters in an original and unique
story. Recommended.” Amazon Reviewer
