Synopsis:

Mel receives a phone call from Detective Shorts asking her to come down to the new amusement park that has just opened. When she arrives, she learns that a man has died and the detective wants to use her ability to converse with ghosts to help solve the mysterious death. Unable to get anything, Detective Shorts sends her home.

Hours later, Mel finds herself being badgered by the dead man’s spirit only to learn that he had overheard two men planning to commit murder, but he doesn’t know who the two men are or who the intended victim is. It’s a race against time for Mel to prevent a homicide before she ends up on the killers’ list. Can she discover who the victim will be before it’s too late?

My rating: ★★★★☆

Hickory Dickory Dock The Ghost In The Clock had another intriguing mystery, which is something I always love about this series! I mean, the title tells it all: someone was found dead in a clock! WTF?! And not only that, but it looks like they were murdered! Talk about being creative. Heh.

Another thing I love about this series is our regular characters! Jack, Greg, Detective Shorts, and of course, Mel. Mel was actually super sassy in this one and I loved it! She is such a great character to follow around on these mysteries!

And then we have Tammy. Again.

Tammy meant well, but her exuberant manner tended to rub people the wrong way, and always got on Jackie’s nerves. -Mel

Mine too, actually. And I don’t know if she’s supposed to be endearing, but she’s totally not! She’s so goddamn annoying!

But overall, this was another fun and fast read in the Mellow Summer series! I always love these books and I am definitely looking forward to the next installment of this action-packed and humorous series!
