Publisher's Summary

Nobody knows that Laurel Bay can see and talk to ghosts. When she inherits a funeral home, she is forced to return from the city to the small town of Witch Woods to breathe life into the business. It is a grave responsibility, but Laurel is determined that this will be no dead-end job.

There she has to contend with her manipulative and overly religious mother, more than one ghost, and a secretive but handsome accountant.

When the murder of a local woman in the funeral home strangles the finances, can Laurel solve the murder?

Or will this be the death of her business?

    Story
    "Mom really?????"

    This is a story about a woman who can see and talk to ghost. She inherits a funeral home from her dad. She has to deal with running the business and her mother who is always putting her down or trying to fix her up with men with weird ideas for a wife. During a funeral /viewing, a relative wants to view their grandmother one more time. When the coffin i open there is another body. A young girl who was murdered. Then her ghost appears and Laurel tells her she will find out who murdered her. This is a cute funny book. Morgana's stories are really great. Laura Holloway did a great job with the narration. I look forward to book 2.

    "Couldn't even finish"

    If you're idea of a fun cozy is a vindictive, spiteful, religious zealot for a Mom that berates and walks all over the daughter over and over again. Then this is your book. I quit after about 2.5 hours. I hoped that the mother's part would diminish and the fun mystery would start but it hadn't happened at that point. I should have gone to Amazon and read the reviews there before buying.

    "Good book"

    Good book, great character development. Narrator does a great job of reading the story, she does a good job of getting the main character's feelings across. I look forward to the next book in the series. I received this book in exchange for a fair review.

    I have actually been a listener since 2010 (long story). I LOVE audiobooks and can't begin to give a fav author or narrator there are many!

    "I see..., more fun to come!"
    Where does A Ghost of a Chance rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Well I considering I own almost 500 (only 100 not heard, good deals happen on future books in a series and you gotta get them), this will be difficult. I would say in the genre/category that A Ghost of a Chance is in (Paranormal/Supernatural Mystery/Thrillers), it is in my top 5 authors.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I think the plot kept good suspense and gave me things to consider (then reconsider)...I don't want to give all the goodies away. I love the "livelier" funerals and the pastor's participation in them, no never know what he will do next. I really want to know what Mr. Hottie Accountant is in to.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I think the narration matched the pace; however, I feel the narrator could have more inflections of the characters' feelings especially the annoyance or exasperation coming from Laurel Bay when dealing with her mother.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes I would have liked to listen to this all in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    I admire the fact that Morgana Best has written about more than one "ghostly" in tuned heroine, but that they are vastly different characters. Morgana created vivid heroines that are touched with supernatural gifts, and yet they stand completely apart from each other with their own stories to tell.

    I love the wit and sarcasm of the main character. She brings a laugh at just the right moment every time.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I kept waiting for the next laugh. And it produced every time.


    What about Laura Holloway’s performance did you like?

    She had good inflection at the right moments.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was thoroughly involved with the whole story.


    Any additional comments?

    This was an extremely good story line. I recommend it. Especially if you enjoy sarcasm.

    Story
    "Murder investigation gets hilarious!"

    I would call the mother obnoxious, and not just because of her brand of blatantly hypocritical religiosity. But Laurel is barely managing not to strangle her. So, there's the resident ghost, the temporary ghost who wants her murder solved, the droolworthy accountant, the KISS funeral, the Elvis funeral, and the rest of the town loonies. I loved it and it was a real gigglefest!
    Laura Holloway does an adequate job as narrator, but bland. And she sounds American when the book is set in Australia.

    "A good chuckle"
    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Even though this is a murder mystery, there were several spots that warranted an out and out chuckle.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait to grab the rest of this series!
