Audible Editor Reviews

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.

    "Light"

    A light listen. Nothing special, just a cute story. If you read the first of the series you should know what to expect.

    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.

    Story
    "A positively funny book!"
    If you could sum up An Uninvited Ghost in three words, what would they be?

    Hilariously funny follow-up!


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


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

    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.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A guest house to run and I have a ghost who wants me to play Sherlock Holmes!

    Story
    "Puerile!"

    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!

    Character Rating: 4.00

    Audio Rating: 4.50 (Not part of the overall rating)

    First Thought when Finished: An Uninvited Ghost by E.J. Copperman was a fun entry into the series. The characters are just fantastic!

    Story Thoughts: Oh My! What do you do when you turn your house into a B&B and then someone ends up dead? Well if you are Alison you try not to investigate but with pesky ghosts bugging you too, you end up doing it anyway! The mystery was fun in An Uninvited Ghost. You could mostly tell who was responsible about half way though but watching the story play out was still entertaining. One of the things I love about this series is the police are involved. Alison does work with them and even tries to stay out of the way. Things never quite go that well for her but at least she tries. I think most cozy mystery lovers will like the mystery and how it plays out!

    Character Thoughts: Let's talk ghosts! I don't think there is a better duo of ghosts than Paul and Maxie. They both bring such life to the series. Neither has been dead very long so you get some "growing" pains and adjustments that just make you laugh (and sometimes tear up). Ali is a kick butt leading lady. She is a single mother to a very smart kid and has a mother that is supportive (and yet a little off). Of course, all 3 can see ghosts so that plays into their personalities as well. The "Off The Shore" cast that was in this book was hilarious and the "Old Folks Vacationers" were delight too. EJ Cooperman just writes good characters!

    Audio Thoughts:

    Narrated by: Amanda Ronconi /Length: 9 hrs and 31 mins


    I almost sound like a broken record where Amanda's narration is concerned but I have never heard her do a bad job--EVER! Seriously she just does quirky better than anyone. She has great pacing and just the right amount of "snark" in her voice. I adore her narration.

    Final Thoughts: I am off to get the 3rd book in the series :)

    Story
    "Very disapointing."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    So very old fashioned.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Boring


    Was An Uninvited Ghost worth the listening time?

    Not really. I became disenchanted with it so put it on while doing the house work just for some background noise.


    Any additional comments?

    Not for me but others may find it interesting. Recommend you try sample first.
