Waiting on Wednesday(2/23) : Dying to Meet You: 43 Old Cemetery Road


Ignatius B. Grumply moves into the Victorian mansion at 43 Old Cemetery Road hoping to find some peace and quiet so he can crack a wicked case of writer's block. But 43 Old Cemetery Road is already occupied by eleven-year-old Seymour, his cat Shadow, and an irritable ghost named Olive. It's hard to say who is more outraged. But a grumpy old ghost just might inspire this grumpy old man--and the abandoned kid? Well, let's just say his last name's Hope.
Sisters Kate and M. Sarah Klise, the creators of the award-winning Regarding the . . . series, offer up this debut volume in a clever new series told in letters, drawings, newspaper articles, a work-in-progress manuscript, and even an occasional tombstone engraving

I have read the third book and fell for it. I got it from net Galley. I love the illustration. But there are so many question left. But I can not get the answers but reading the first book. I wish one fairy god mother will bring it to my mailbox. It's a very light reading and recommended for middle grade.

This book has been published on September 6, 2010.

Sounds like a wonderful series. I'd like a light read for once, a paranormal one but away from all the paranormal romances I've read lately. This looks like the novel I've been looking for ;)
