A bit more adventurous than "Parnassus on Wheels", but less charmingly naiive; very typical Morley, a bit preachy and very old-fashioned but good light reading.

The Haunted Bookshop is a sequel to Parnassus on Wheels, in which the discontented farm spinster Helen runs off with the charming travelling bookseller Roger Mifflin. Happily married, the Mifflins run a second-hand bookstore in Brooklyn that is haunted by quirky characters of both the dead and undead variety. Helen bakes chocolate, Roger waxes, and romance and comedy abound. Morley?s novels about the Mifflins are charming, delightful little books that are really about the importance of reading and the sheer love that everyday people?from the nineteenth century to the twenty-first?have for books, whether they?re romances, mysteries, or ghost stories. If the other books on this haunted booklist have set your hair on end, this older, lighter, comical ghost story might be just what you need to fall asleep again.
