There’s a queue of people at her door, and not all of them are living . . .

When Tanz, the accidental medium, is asked to help in the search for a missing woman, she finds herself at the Cross Bones Graveyard in London’s Southwark. From the outset it’s obvious there is unrest among the spirits who call this place their home, and now Tanz is right in the middle of it. What’s more, she now finds her ‘so-called gift’ is even stronger than it was and the dead really want to talk! Couple this with performing a play that could wreck her acting career for good, and a growing attraction to a police officer who happens to be a lot younger than her, and life is very complicated. But when the dead become restless Tanz can’t ignore them, and a mystery needs solving. So is she strong enough to come out the other side?

Cross Bones is the third book in a hilarious series featuring Tanz, the accidental medium who, with the help of the dead, has become an unwilling crime-solver.

I've not come across this series before but after reading this instalment I will definitely be reading the rest! This is such a fun book, full of paranormal activity and it features a really engrossing plot. It was well paced and I loved our main protagonist Tanz, who I found so funny and endearing. Overall this book was exciting and full of heart, a cozy spooky story that would be perfect to read in the Autumn.

Many thanks to the author, publisher and Netgalley for providing this ARC in exchange for an unbiased review.

I was so happy when this arrived in my inbox.

I have loved reading Tracy's books since I was bought her forst novel a few years ago and this did not disappoint.

Filled with amazing characters, stories and crazy goings on, everything about it was just 5 stars.

I was absolutely delighted to be granted this book by NetGalley and Pan Macmillan. I devoured the first two novels in this series by Tracy Whitwell - The Accidental Medium and Gin Palace - and absolutely loved them. Tanz is one of my favourite characters in a novel. This book was funny, scary, emotional, sweet, beautiful and just wonderful. I think it’s my favourite of the three books so far, crammed with ghosts and spooky goings on. I really hope that there are more of Tanz’s adventures to come, especially now her witchiness has ramped up by several notches! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ with added 🫣😨😱☠️👻🧙🏻‍♀️

Tracey Whitwell has a rare talent to make us laugh and empathise with the actress and reluctant medium character of Tanz the frequently out of work actress.
This third book in the series sees Tanz being increasingly disillusioned with acting and still having to cope with the after effects of her previous medium adventures. She’s offered a part in a play ‘off the West End’. Finding it to be a car crash production Tanz is heartened by her fellow thesps being great comrades in drinking and the full English. Outside of the acting she’s having some very dark dreams and visions, her best friend is leaving London and she’s definitely got post traumatic stress from being held captive by a psycho. Her love life is a bust since her last squeeze went travelling but there’s light at the end of this particular tunnel in the shape of Neil the policeman.
It’s very funny, very spooky and quite emotional. I do love this series of books and hope there are more adventures to come.

Absolutely brilliant! I loved the Accidental Medium and this eagerly awaited second book did not disappoint. I love all the characters and the storyline was just fantastic. Highly recommend.

Loved being back with our favourite accidental medium Tanz! In the third instalment of this series we find Tanz drawn towards Cross Bones graveyard in London. There’s something very wrong with the spirits who remain there and the graveyard is starting to fall apart. Sidetracked from her original mission to track down a missing woman, Tanz begins to look into what’s causing the disruption and why so many spirits remain at the site.

This was an absolute hoot. As always, Tanz is full of sass and humour and is a genuinely loveable character. I was so addicted to the storyline and thought it was really cool that it was based around a real place! I was immediately looking up Cross Bones graveyard to see what it looked like. I loved that Sheila was back in this book too, as she bounces off Tanz so perfectly. I really enjoyed the links to history in this one. This book is an absolute must if you like a good cosy-supernatural story with a good dose of giggles. Hit the nail on the head again Tracy Whitwell!

A really fun series that makes you escape real life. Great fun characters and a really good read different from others in this genre - would recommend

Absolutely love this series! This is the 3rd book, and I read it in a day! I love Tanz and Sheila, they have fully come to grips with their powers, and Tanz gets a boost in this one, which was fun to read as she processed what was happening to her. I liked how it wasn't just a murder she was solving but a story going back generations in one family. I liked how it was all linked together, and the ending was quite sad with Nelly.
