Ghost at Work by Carolyn Hart

Bailey Ruth is in Heaven.  She wants to help people on Earth.  Wiggins has decided that she can help people but she must get some training.  He sends her down without training because of an emergency.  Her great niece Kathleen has had a dead body dumped on her back porch.  Who would do such a thing?  Who killed Daryl Murdoch? The police suspect several people including Kathleen and her husband Bill who is a minister. Kathleen tries to investigate but muddles things up.  Bailey Ruth is going to figure it out and saved Kathleen and her family.

This is the first in a series called Bailey Ruth Mysteries. I enjoyed this cozy mystery.
Summary from Harper Collins:
Bailey Ruth Raeburn always had a knack for solving mysteries. Why should a little thing like being dead change anything?
Bailey Ruth's unique position as a ghost makes it possible for her to lend a helping hand to her former neighbors in Adelaide, Oklahoma. And the rector's wife, Kathleen Abbott, needs all the help she can get. There's a dead man on her porch, and once the body's discovered the rector's bound to be murder suspect number one.
An agent of Heaven's Department of Good Intentions, Bailey Ruth's eager to head back to the mortal plane to extricate Kathleen from a dire situation. Wiggins, Bailey Ruth's fussbudget supervisor, has already advised her about the rules: she's to be on the earth, not of the earth. But to bring a killer to justice, she just might have to bend a heavenly rule or two . . .
