"Bailey Ruth's supervisor, Wiggins, is worried about a dear old friend. The ghost of elegant Lorraine Marlow haunts Adelaide's college library. Known as the Lady of the Roses, she plays matchmaker, using the fragrant flowers to pair up students. But someone's making mischief after hours, leaving roses strewn about the library, destroying a gargoyle, and stealing a valuable book. Concerned with Lorraine's reputation among the living, Wiggins dispatches the irrepressible redhead Bailey Ruth to investigate. Soon after her arrival, trouble begins to stack up. A campus security guard is shot by an intruder, and Bailey Ruth uncovers a catalog of evidence blaming a student for the crimes. As a ghost, she may not be all there, but even Bailey Ruth can decipher that something isn't adding up. So with police preparing to make an arrest, the spirited detective must race against the clock to find the real culprit, because when justice is overdue, it takes more than death to stop Bailey Ruth Raeburn."-- Provided by publisher.

Well another great Bailey Ruth Raeburn story! I truly enjoy this series. The characters become friends you want to see often! It is a mystery (not suspense) story which is light and entertaining without having to wrack your brain to keep track after a hard day's work. It is a welcome tool for relaxation and entertainment. The fact the Bailey Ruth is so totally likable is only one aspect of the story. This one in particular was a delight when you discover that Lorraine Marlow was Wiggins true love and the ending is absolutely what I would have written so this author definitely knows her audience!
Highly recommend the entire series and this book in particular.
My thanks to the library for having these in Large Print so that even if we don't have to have that, we can still enjoy the book after a hard day at the computer and all other technology without straining tired eyes. I am so grateful for the blessing of Libraries!

I read another book in the Bailey series a while ago and thought it was OK. I'm in the middle of this one and I will finish it but the whole ghost thing doesn't really appeal to me. Although I am a very big mystery fan and usually will read any type of mystery
