    "Once again, a fun book to listen to"

    I have to say I have yet to be disappointed by Ms. Laurie. I really enjoy her writing and would recommend her to anyone that enjoys a good ghost story. There is humor and suspense, there is light heartedness and some scare. I enjoyed the new character in this book and I hope he shows up again if this series continues.

    I once owned the bookstore A Novel Idea. I sold mysteries and cat humor. Put a cat in a mystery, and I'm likely to read it. Book Reviewer.

    Story
    "Prime ghost busting at most haunted hotel in US"

    Gilley Gillespie, the technical side of the partnership of Gilley with MJ Holliday, a psychic medium, had a new idea to make them big bucks and get some free advertising on the side. Hollywood had called with the idea of a sort of haunted Antiques Roadshow to be broadcast on their favorite cable network, Bravo. Gilley is totally excited about the idea, MJ says no way, and their business partner and former client, Dr. Steven Sable was already packed. After much deliberation and discussion, the three agree to go to San Francisco where the producer named Gopher would set up several mediums and several objects such as hairbrushes and other small personal items. Then the mediums would determine if these everyday items could hold such power and whether that power was limited to good or positive energy.

    When the trio lands in San Francisco in their third book, MJ discovers they will stay at THE most haunted hotel in America, The Duke Hotel. However, their cab can’t even deliver them to the door because there is a crime scene taped off and blocking the entrance along with a crowd of people, police, EMTs, and construction workers working on the hotel renovation. A woman’s body lies in the center of all that, and MJ has her attention. Police allow her to near the body to question her about how she happened to end up on the pavement, and among other information, MJ learns the woman’s name and room number before she crosses her over. She accompanies the detective to her room where she spells out what happened.

    While this scene seems totally unrelated to the haunted objects, it definitely ties in and helps to explain things later in the book. From one event to another, they are all tied together. The ghosts of the hotel show up for the Bravo shoot of MJ and three other psychics trying to determine if objects are haunted. They make mischief that scare two of the psychics and reveal them to be fakes. That left MJ and Heath Whitefeather, a young man who had been raised on the reservation. With so little to do there, he walked the land and spoke to the spirits he found. MJ and Heath realized that each other was the real deal and the beginnings of a friendship formed.

    The shoot of haunted objects fell apart when the hotel ghosts disrupted the entire thing. However, the director, Gopher, sees a new opportunity much more intriguing that objects – these are dead people he can investigate via MJ and Heath. Since they are staying at the hotel, it becomes a necessity to deal with them. A woman is killed in the rest room after MJ notices another woman in the mirror walk into the ladies room and not exit. MJ goes into the rest room where there is another huge mirror and a now dead body. There are four of these huge mirrors framed in gold that the owner of the hotel just bought at an auction in London, where the young woman who had lain in front of the hotel had been living.

    Many more details are revealed as MJ and Heath investigate with Steven and Gilley in his custom made sweatshirt full of magnets to keep the ghosts away from him, since he has revealed he is afraid of ghosts! They find benign ghosts and then they find the violent ones. It is MJ who finally begins to piece the many clues together to determine just what happened to the entire hotel.

    There are many voices in the book and differing accents, too, that Eileen Stevens as narrator handles very well. She makes each person sound distinctly different from the others. Her overall narrating is done very well also; it is a pleasure to listen to. Nothing distracts from the story to bring the reader out of the context of the book. There are surprises, and I found my jaw dropping in places. In others, I routed for the characters and urged them on in the right direction. It was almost as if I were a bystander in the story itself. To bring me into the story that far truly shows a talented author.

    Please excuse me while I quick go grab book 4 in this terrific series, GHOULS GONE WILD.

    "Best yet!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Ghouls Just Haunt to Have Fun to be better than the print version?

    Love the life given to the characters by the performer.


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

    There was serious depth to the storyline this time. Great layers, while still being light, fun reading.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The most "edge of my seat" scene was when they first encountered The Knife.


    Any additional comments?

    I want a discounted boxed set! Looking forward to the rest of the series.

    Story
    "The woman in the mirror was such a surprise.."

    I really like Victoria Laurie's imagination. However, can she make Gilly scream LESS please? Oy! My ears!

    There were some rough parts where I felt the story line didn't quite jell. Like when camera operators just take off. Wouldn't they tell someone they were leaving if they were supposed to be guarding the equipment? Stuff like that just feels weird. Other than that super MINOR irritation, the story tied up together pretty neatly.

    Although I didn't buy Gilly making all these secret arrangements behind her back... what? I'd be killing me a business partner. Maybe the police would then hire MJ to find out who did it?

    And a knife stored in a magnetic box? And now all the people who read the story know about it? When shall this demon knife show back up as I'm sure it will?

    I do like Eileen Stevens as the narrator, as I find it easy to listen to her. Well, except when Gilly screams. THAT sizzles my nerves!

    What was most disappointing about Victoria Laurie’s story?

    It was just to crazy for me


    Any additional comments?

    I have loved all of her books in both series until this one. I don't think I can even finish it.
