Haunted houses are scary enough without knife-wielding clowns. Especially murderous knife-wielding clowns. So thinks Ellison Russell, single mother, artist, and reluctant sleuth.

Now death wears a red nose and Ellison is up to the blood-stained collar of her new trench coat in costumes, caffeine, and possible killers. Who stabbed Brooks Harney? And why? Money? Jealousy? Drugs?

With Mother meddling, her father furious, and her date dragged downtown for questioning, turns out Ellison’s only confidante is Mr. Coffee.

Ellison doesn't have much trust for men, except Mr. Coffee! She's having enough of a hard time raising a teenager on her own, but her mother thinks she needs a man, and has the just the right one! When her daughter is late and no one knows where she is she storms through the haunted house only to witness Brooks being killed.  On top of that he mumbles her name and a message.  Now she has the police, her mother, and the perfect man, all asking how she's involved.

This was a fun read, and Ellison's romance and conversations with Mr. Coffee add to the humor. The story line includes enough subplots and twists to keep me guessing and reading to the end.  I'd recommend it to anyone who hasn't read others in the series - it can be read as a stand alone.  Anyone who has read the others, I'm sure will find this one just as enjoyable.
