    Kidwella Castle in northern Wales is rumored to be haunted by a deadly ghost - the Grim Widow, who allegedly drowns unsuspecting guests in the castle’s moat. Not long after M. J. and her crew arrive at the castle to film their ghost-hunting cable TV show, Ghoul Getters, two new victims are added to the Widow’s grisly roster. Fear ripples through the castle, especially when it’s discovered that the victims may have had help into their watery graves from the land of the living.

    JEAN says: "love the series butttt Gilly has to grow up or go"

    What did you like best about What a Ghoul Wants? What did you like least?

    The clever titles are the best part. The heroine's sidekick is a distraction with his annoying whine.


    If you’ve listened to books by Victoria Laurie before, how does this one compare?

    I enjoyed the detective series more.


    What does Eileen Stevens bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A really bad Welsh accent. Decent Irish voices and bearable Scottish and English accents.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    This series needs to come back to the US or end.

    We’re Supernatural Protection & Investigations, known as SPI. Things that go bump in the night, the monsters you thought didn’t exist? We battle them and keep you safe. But some supernatural baddies are just too big to contain, even for us. When I moved to New York to become a world famous journalist, I never imagined that snagging a job at a seedy tabloid would change my career path from trashy reporter to undercover agent. I’m Makenna Fraser, a Seer for SPI.

    As usual, Johanna's hokey, one-size-fits -all attempt at a Southern accent, detracts from the story. She did the same accent in the Stackhouse series.

    Personal trainer Trey Ziegler was in peak physical condition. If you didn't count the kitchen knife in his well-toned chest. Lieutenant Eve Dallas soon discovers a lineup of women who'd been loved and left by the narcissistic gym rat. While Dallas sorts through the list of Ziegler's enemies, she's also dealing with her Christmas shopping list - plus the guest list for her and her billionaire husband's upcoming holiday bash.

    BG853 says: "A Feast for In Death devotees"
    "Another winner for this duo."

    Just enough of the regulars in another good case. Delia Peabody and her pink boots never fail to slay me.
