I promised last week that I’d tell you about another of our free first-in-series ebooks next month. Well, next month is here! Welcome October!

October is my favorite month. I’ve already got the house decked out for Halloween. We’ve already watched Hocus Pocus. And I’ve got witches and pumpkins and ghosts on my mind!

So, it’s only appropriate that the book I’m talking about this week is from USA Today bestselling author Dean Wesley Smith’s Ghost of a Chance series. Set in the world of Dean’s fan-favorite Poker Boy universe, the premise of this series is a simple question: What happens if ghosts can fight crime and bad guys?

Here’s the synopsis to the first novel in that series, The Poker Chip:

Just fifteen minutes after Dr. Jewel Kelly meets Deputy Sheriff Tommy Ralston, they both die. They simply become ghosts, hanging around their own death scene in the mountains of Montana, waiting for something to happen. But even as ghosts they find each other really attractive.

In life, they both worked to help people. It seems that in the afterlife, their job continues.

The strangest crime-fighting ghost duo ever. And the sexiest.
