    Lacey Terwilliger's shock and humiliation over her husband's philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mike's company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist gives him. The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....

With over 3,000 investigations to their credit, they reveal what actually breaks the peace in haunted houses. Don't miss the Warrens in the new blockbuster movie The Conjuring.

    Nola Leary would have been content to stay in Kilcairy, Ireland, healing villagers at her family’s clinic with a mix of magic and modern medicine. But a series of ill-timed omens and a deathbed promise to her grandmother have sent her on a quest to Half-Moon Hollow, Kentucky, to secure her family’s magical potency for the next generation. Her supernatural task? To unearth four artifacts hidden by her grandfather before a rival magical family beats her to it. Complication One: The artifacts are lost somewhere in vampire Jane Jameson’s occult bookshop. Complication Two: Her new neighbor, Jed Trudeau, keeps turning up half-naked at the strangest times....

    I adore Molly Harper, I love Amanda Ronconi. With that said I think the good thing these two had going.....is OVER. Usually, Mollys books make me laugh out loud and Amanda seals the deal. I didn't love the characters, the story was weak and the narrator sucked. It was difficult to finish it as Amanda ruined it with the terrible, terrible accent. I'm shaking my head over this one. I didn't laugh once. Not even a giggle. I'm seriously depressed over this failure as I looked so forward to this book.

This book is poetry, it's fun, it's heart felt and heart breaking. All 3 books were wonderful but this one holds a place in my heart forever. Loved it!!!

    The family magic seems to have skipped over Tammy Jo Trask. All she gets are a few untimely visits from long-dead, smart-mouthed family ghost Edie. But when her locket-an heirloom that happens to hold Edie's soul-is stolen in the midst of a town-wide crime spree, it's time for Tammy to find her inner witch.

    Story

    If it were not for the occasional disappearance of the main characters southern accent this book would be perfect. I am a southerner and it was a bit over done. With that said the story was really good & I especially loved the cat. It was easy to follow and the reader did a great job with different characters.

    My name is Amelia Gray. They call me The Graveyard Queen. I've been commissioned to restore an old cemetery in Asher Falls, South Carolina, but I'm coming to think I have another purpose here. Why is there a cemetery at the bottom of Bell Lake? Why am I drawn time and again to a hidden grave I've discovered in the woods? Something is eating away at the soul of this town - this withering kingdom - and it will only be restored if I can uncover the truth.

    When I started this series I was looking for a haunted house type thing. It's one of the first haunted person type story I've ever read. After getting over that other than seeing ghosts is the only supernatural thing in this story I loved it. Great story, awesome reader! I loved every second of it.

    My name is Amelia Gray. I'm a cemetery restorer who sees ghosts. In order to protect myself from the parasitic nature of the dead, I've always held fast to these rules passed down from my father…until now. Detective John Devlin needs my help to find a killer, but he is haunted by ghosts who shadow his every move. To warn him would be to invite them into my life. I've vowed to keep my distance, but the pull of his magnetism grows ever stronger even as the headstone symbols lead me closer to truth and to the gossamer veil that separates this world from the next.

    Story

    You never look at grave yards the same ever again. This story makes you believe that it's possible that maybe there are people who talk to the dead. It would be nice to say a few things to a few of my deceased lol. I loved the reader, the story was great and the dead were awesome. While I suppose it's not meant to be scary exactly it does make you look over your shoulder a bit. House sounds, darkness & coincidences suddenly begin to mean a little bit more. Very good book.

    For over 20 years, Belasco House has stood empty. Regarded as the Mt. Everest of haunted houses, its shadowed walls have witnessed scenes of unimaginable horror and depravity. All previous attempts to probe its mysteries have ended in murder, suicide, or insanity.

    But now, a new investigation has been launched, bringing four strangers to Belasco House in search of the ultimate secrets of life and death. A wealthy publisher, brooding over his impending death, has paid a physicist and two mediums to establish the facts of life after death once and for all. For one night, they will investigate the Belasco House and learn exactly why the townsfolk refer to it as the Hell House.

    This was a pretty good read. It was however, very rated R! I didn't love the narrator but after awhile I got used to it. The ending was not predictable and I appreciate that very much. The hauntings are very graphic and decently scary.the story is a bit wordy but a great listen.

    The Perry family's new house is perfect - except for the weird behavior of the neighbors, and that odd smell coming from a dark corner in the basement. Pity no one warned the family about the house. Now it's too late. Because the darkness at the bottom of the basement stairs is rising.

    This book was very good. I do think it would have been just as good if not better if the sexual scenes weren't the most detailed things through out the whole book. Despite that, it was a great haunted house story. As for the narrator, decent for what he had to read. If language & sexual content is very rated R so listening out loud is a bad idea. Otherwise great!
