Another One Bites the Dust (Jensen Murphy, Ghost for Hire #2) by Chris Marie Green

Jensen Murphy is back in the spooky sequel to Only the Good Die Young.

Some people think that ghosts are spirits that refuse to go to the other side because they have unfinished business. Take my word—that’s true. I should know. I’m a ghost.

I was an ordinary eighties California girl, dead before my time, until psychic Amanda Lee Minter pulled me out of the time loop where I was reliving my death over and over. Now I’m Jensen Murphy, Ghost for Hire. I decided to put my spooky talents to use in helping Amanda Lee track down bad guys and killers (including my own).

It’s taken time to figure out exactly how that will work (our first case was definitely a learning experience for all involved), so when a young woman asks Amanda Lee for help convincing her best friend to leave a dangerously hot-tempered boyfriend, I’m ready and willing to use our collective powers on her behalf. But some people are dangerous not only to the living—especially when there are darker forces involved...

My review:
I was lucky enough to have won an advanced readers copy from the author.  But before I got a chance to read it my daughter grabbed it and I just now got to read it. 
This is the second in this series but can be read standalone.  Jensen has grown as an entity and as a person.  She is growing stronger as a ghost and has once again been brought into an investigation by Amanda Lee.  For all that this is a ghost story there are some really deep issues addressed to get you thinking.  The secondary characters are truly wonderful.  This is not in your face scary but does have some truly freaky moments.  So lock the doors, brew a cup and delve into this wonderful book.
