Publisher's Summary

Life used to be drab for Billie Culpepper, but all that changed after an accident left her in a coma for three days. That was when the spook show really began, when Billie realized that she could see the dead.

And the dead could see her.

Now they won't leave her alone.

Accompanying two friends through a haunted house, Billie uncovers a terrible secret that brings not only the police but the homicide detective responsible for putting her into the hospital in the first place. He's also the one man she swore to stay away from.

Author's note: The Spookshow is the first book in a new paranormal series about what lies on the other side of death. A young woman's latent psychic ability is awakened, allowing her to see the lost souls that surround us. This is part blessing but mostly a curse, and she struggles to deal with the awful truths the dead whisper to her. Complicating matters is the homicide detective who comes to her for help - a man she's drawn to but cannot be with. So far, the books are:

  • The Spookshow
  • Welcome to the Spookshow
  • The Women in the Walls
  • Bringing Up the Bodies

The Spookshow is a fast-paced introduction into the world of ghosts, murder, mystery, the occult, and the heartbreaks of wayward 20-somethings trying to find their places in life.

    "Frustrating"

    The story isn't bad but it just stops. I realize it is a series but I expect each book to have a beginning, middle, and end even though the story will also continue. There was no resolution to anything. I feel cheated that I didn't get a whole story that left me wanting more. Instead it stopped like a chapter ending bit there isn't a next chapter.

    Story
    "Definitely Youth Fiction"

    This reminds me of the Goosebumps books I read as a kid. As an adult, I found it very hard to stay interested in this story.

    Story
    "SPOOKTACULAR!"
    What did you love best about The Spookshow, Book 1?

    This was a thoroughly enjoyable book. I have this book on Kindle as well as an Audible. The story was engaging, the characters were developed well.


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

    I enjoyed Caitlin Gallogly's narration of Spookshow Book 1. Her voice was clear, animated, and pleasant to listen to. I did notice a couple of glitches...twice a sentence was repeated. I don't know if the original recording had been stopped and then repeated where it was left off. This did happen twice but seemed to be the only problem.


    Any additional comments?

    My only complaint about the story is that Books 1 and 2 seem to be reversed, that is--book 2 should be book 1 and vice versa. Story jumps to a "prequel." I have downloaded books 3 and 4 in this series but have not had the chance to start them yet. It is my hope that Book 3 will continue the story in Book 1. Other than that, I think it's a great story and am looking forward to continuing the series. I envision this as becoming a movie some day!

    "disappointing"

    poorly read which distracts from the story and I gave up quite quickly due to that. the story at the start seems reasonable. I might try again in future but for now, not fo me.

    Story
    "Forgetable characters"

    Despite being relatively short, throughout the book I had difficulty remembering the characters. Maybe the characters were not 3D enough for me, maybe I was just not interested in them. Either way, my struggle with the characters made it harder for me to engage with the story.

    I am glad I was listening to it on audio (I don't think I would have finished the book), however the recording did have some errors e.g. repeated phrases, some background noise etc. and altogether felt a little 'home made'. Now I'm all into my crafts and love home made, however I did find it distracting.

    That said, I did enjoy the ending which left me wanting to know more - who knows, maybe I'll get the next book in the series...?!

    "Ghost Story To Give You Shivers"

    Having read the series of books it was lovely to revisit this first book. Caitlin narrated it perfectly and I found myself looking at the characters afresh. The story introduces you to the main characters while making you comfortable in their world then springing frights and scares on you. I've never read a truly scary book before but this gave me goosebumps. Well worth a listen to....but I'd leave the light on if I were you.
