Done with The Ghost and the Dead Man's Library by Alice Kimberly

As it turns out the mysterious Poe Code really exists in those thirteen old volumes, and it does point to a treasure. I won't reveal what the treasure is but it's pretty neat. Unfortunately a murder was committed by an unscrupulous character who was after the treasure, but Penelope helped solve the murder with the help of her ghost Jack.

Jack gives Penelope clues to her 'case' by showing her one of his old cases that is similar to hers. He does this while she is sleeping - he appears in her dreams and sometimes he even pulls her into his reality. He will even dress her up in the fashions of the 1940's and gets her involved in the action of the cases. The two definitely have some chemistry between them and as he says, "I'll see you in your dreams baby". (Oh, be still my heart.)

I'm pretty fascinated by the idea Ms. Kimberly came up with for this series and I'm really looking forward to reading more of her books.
