The third book in my MURDER BY DESIGNS series, ONCE UPON A GHOST, has a pesky ghost who likes to wake up medium Bailey Burke by singing Celine Dion off-key by a dead mobster at three in the morning is so not romantic, but it got me thinking about the power of music and love songs. For me, music has always been a huge part of my life and it inspires my writing.

Since Bailey's relationship with Marner heats up in this book here is my list of top romantic songs.

  1. I Will Always Love You. I do love the original Dolly Parton version, but the Whitney Houston version from the movie The Bodyguard is just stunning.
  2. Can't Help Falling In Love by Elvis Presley. This song is just so sweet and stands the test of time. I could see Marner secretly listening to some Elvis music.
  3. Your Song by Elton John. I always said that the first man to serenade me with this song would be my husband. Sadly, my hubby, who we call Mr. Writer, did not sing it to me at any point, but I did use it to walk down the aisle at our wedding.
  4. Love Song by The Cure. I fell in love with this song at 17 years old and it is still beautiful and sexy and haunting to me.
  5. Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton. When I hear this song I found it both romantic and sad because you sense he knows he's screwing up their relationship, yet he thinks she is just so beautiful. Sigh.
  6. Bless the Broken Road by Rascal Flatts.

What's your favorite love song?

ONCE UPON A GHOST by Erin McCarthy

Murder By Design #3

Once Upon
A Ghost

With Bailey Burke's design and staging business booming- it turns out tangling with a serial killer is the best advertising ever- she has no time to lament her lack of love life, or wonder where her dead friend Ryan's ghost has gone. She hasn't seen him in months, but when she finds a body in a home she's been hired to stage she's hounded by the dead man's ghost.

Having been a medium before, this guy is by far the most irritating ghost she's ever met, with his constant need to talk over her and flick pennies at her head. Without Ryan to guide her, she's on her own to figure out what the dead man needs from her. On top of all that, cop Jake Marner is back in her life, ostensibly to protect her, but mostly to confuse her as to whether they are dating or not.

Before she can say "Put It Where?" Bailey finds herself immersed in mob dealings, the secret world of male-only sweat baths, and double dealings. When another body turns up, there is no doubt that she's in over her head... again.
