When Alison Kerby bought a huge Victorian house in the New Jersey town of Harbor Haven, she didn't know that it already contained two permanent residents: eccentric ghosts named Paul and Maxie. So Alison only had one choice. She turned the house into a haunted bed and breakfast for senior citizens looking for a "unique vacation experience". In this second Haunted Guesthouse Mystery, E. J. Copperman's witty and accessible heroine helps solve a murder case - with the help of her paranormal colleagues.
Amanda Ronconi is an experienced comedic performer, and this audiobook is right up her alley. The dialogue, ghostly hijinks, and offbeat escapades are all enhanced by her excellent pacing and varied voices.
Alison and her resident gumshoe ghost are on their next case when the deceased Scott MacFarlane floats in worried that he accidentally killed a prominent local woman. Turns out she's still alive...that is, of course, until she's murdered - in Alison's house. Now, between the demands of her guests and the arrival of a reality television crew, Alison must find the killer before she sees reality from the other side.

I really enjoyed this book. The characters are very realistic and funny. I received many strange looks for laughing out loud. I'm glad I discovered this series.
Hilariously funny follow-up!
It builds on the series, while adding new mysteries to solve. The ending was definitely a surprise because the villain of the story isn't who you would assume it was.
She brings the characters to life with different voices for each character and in each book, the character's voice doesn't change. I like that in a narrator.
A guest house to run and I have a ghost who wants me to play Sherlock Holmes!
No, I'm pretty much a one-time-through it type of person.
Loved the Prologue--immediate capture.
Highly recommend this one. Fun, clean, great story.
I was thoroughly disappointed as the other reviews were so positive. It was dull, uninspired and a waste of a good credit. The only smile that touched my lips was when I came to the end of the book, and that was a smile of relief! I have absolutely no idea how others could have found the book even faintly amusing, let alone hilarious. For a book that is supposed to deal with 'other dimensions' it was remarkably 2-dimensional. Even the supposed satirical take on 'Reality TV' was predictable. However, having said that, it would be a safe book to let your children read in bed and they would probably drop off to sleep in no time!
Myst/thrillers and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
When a recently divorced mother of one renovates an old home into a bed and breakfast, she may have bitten off a little more than she can chew. During construction she and her daughter start to experience spectral sightings and by the time of completion they have accepted and welcomed their friendly, paranormal inhabitants. While still trying to embrace that her first tenants are permanent and ghostly, there is an unexplainable murder that opens the floodgates for the press and local police of this small town.
I was wavering between a three and four star rating but about half way through the pace picked up and the characters became endearing. I think this is a fun, light, cozy series that according to the reviewers just gets better and better. As always, Amanda Rinconi does an exceptional job narrating.
Very compelling story. Always nice conclusion that completes the story and great intro to the next book.
Ronconi is a great narrator that brings each of Copperman's character to life!
If I were rating this book by itself, I'd love it, but compared to the first in the series, I did not like it as much. So, was it good -- YES. Was it "as good" - NO
Love Amanda Ronconi though, so she could read the phone book and have me laughing....!
"Funny, witty and a joy to listen to!"
It's a fresh take on the murder mystery genre, made very entertaining by the ghost factor, the woes of the guesthouse business and the very lovable family at the centre of the story. I'm halfway through the second book and loving it too.
So very old fashioned.
Not really. I became disenchanted with it so put it on while doing the house work just for some background noise.
Not for me but others may find it interesting. Recommend you try sample first.
