Spectral gumshoe Bailey Ruth Raeburn is ordered by her boss in Heaven's Department of Good Intentions to investigate a case of vandalism in Adelaide, OK, Bailey's old stomping ground. In the library of Goddard College, the ghost of Lorraine Marlow haunts the stacks, playing matchmaker among the students by using the scent of roses. But someone else is also causing trouble, stealing a book and vandalizing a gargoyle. When a security guard is shot, Bailey knows the suspect student cannot be responsible, but who is?
"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.

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
