Genre:Paranormal Mystery.



Once again, Pepper Martin Mysteries took another approach. That’s what I love about the book, there is always something unexpected. Tomb With View mostly surrounded around actual living person’s death, unlike the other books, which usually involved the ghosts. Despite me disliking the person, I was curious to find what happens. At same time I was eager, to find the reason why President’s ghost was hanging around. I couldn’t help but get observed in the story. I’m excited to see what adventure Pepper will come across next, what ghost she come across.

Cemeteries come alive for amateur sleuth/reluctant medium Pepper Martin.
Cleveland's Garden View Cemetery is hosting a James A. Garfield commemoration. For tour guide and reluctant medium Pepper Martin this means that's he'll surely be hearing from the dead president himself. And when she's assigned to help plan the event with know-it-all volunteer and Garfield fanatic Marjorie Klinker, she'll wish Marjorie were dead...too bad someone beats Pepper to it.

Unlike other books, this actually involved a murder of living person, instead of ghost coming to Pepper, asking for help. Though there is ghost involved, a late president James Garfield, and I found curious that his ghost suddenly appeared after so long, I knew there was a reason besides him, having another chance of presidency because his term was cut short. Towards the end, I was glad that he stuck around, that he was able to help Pepper with her stalker, because I was really afraid for her, afraid of what he would done if it wasn’t for the President. From all the ghosts through the books, he was the ones that I seemed to like the most, despite the complaints he seemed to have through the book. President Garfield seemed the one who helped her most, coming to her rescue and that makes him a hero to me.

Marjorie. I disliked her right from start of the book. To me it looked like she only cared about herself, about what she wanted. Way she bossed Pepper around, it made me want me to strangle the women. I was surprised when I found that she had been related to president though, I was sure that it was something that she made up, just like everyone else. But it was because of her, the obsession that she seemed to have with President Garfield that I learned more about president that I was aware of before reading the book. Actually I didn’t know anything about the president, not till I read the book. I loved fact that they added bit of historical aspect to the book. I got say, despite me having not much respect for this character, she wasn’t nasty to Pepper but everyone around her, seemed like she didn’t respect anyone or their feelings, she didn’t deserve die way she did. From moment she was killed, I found myself wonder who killed her and why.

I was curious what happened with Scott, he hasn’t been around, not since he sent her those flowers towards end of Night Of Loving Dead. I found myself wondering if Pepper and him would actually see each other again, it looked like two of them seemed to have some sort of connection in 4th book. I was glad to see that he was mentioned more in this book. I’m eager to find if their relationships will lead, to anything more in future books. As for Quinn, is it really end for him and Pepper? I eager to see if he at some point believes that she is telling him the truth, I’m hoping that he will. It doesn’t seem like Pepper is happy without him. I see Pepper and Quinn together at some point, they have that sort of connection, despite their arguments, and they always end up with each other in the end.

I was sure Nick was the killer; it seemed like all the clues pointed to him. Of course he didn’t end up the killer, there always some sort of twist like that towards the end. That’s what I love at books, that keep you guessing and when you sure you figured out who killer is, there is another twist. If you are into mystery, suspense, ghosts be sure to pick up Pepper Martin Mysteries.
