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!
Book 2 in the ghosthouse series is as easy to follow as the first and is an enjoyable listen. There are places the book seems to drag, but overall those pass quickly. I find Amanda Ronconi performance to be natural and realistic enhancing the quirkiness of the characters.
Yes, because it well performed, a little different and entertaining.
The fact that its a little different. I couldn't say I'd read a similar story somewhere else.
Amanda Ronconi is perfect for reading these kind of stories, I love her slightly sarcastic and easy going rendition.
This is not an extreme kind of story, its an entertaining, easy listen.
If you feel like something a little different with a murderous and Supernatural twist, you should try this series. This book is number two and follows on nicely from the previous book without recovering old ground.
Of course! You can't beat the narration version.
I always like Maxi, but Scott MacFarlane's character was endearing!
Her ability to make the characters come to life, especially her references to Maxi's wardrobe and mannerisms. It makes the characters very real.
Yes, when Scott realized he could finally see!
Keep 'em coming! I love the "guest house" series!
"My test of a good book is dreading to begin the last chapter." - Thomas Helm
A fun read, exciting twists and turns, worth your credit and your time. The series as a whole are terrific.

Enjoyable, but the ending was a bit more convoluted than the others, understandable, but I wondered if I had missed something which is entirely impossible. The narrator is wonderful.
