Publisher's Summary

Just when she thought she'd seen everything... Detective Lieutenant Anita McElone is one of Harbor Haven's finest. She's also a hard-boiled ghost skeptic. So when she shows up on the doorstep of Alison Kerby's Haunted Guesthouse to ask for supernatural help in solving the murder of her former partner, it's hard to tell which woman is more flabbergasted. But McElone is dead serious, so Alison promises to help in any way she can - even asking her resident ghosts, Paul and Maxie, for help with the case. As Paul's spirit source reveals some troubling information about the deceased detective, Alison wrestles with what to tell McElone. First, though, she has to find her... because the lieutenant has suddenly disappeared.

    Story
    "Hilariously entertaining!"
    What made the experience of listening to Inspector Specter the most enjoyable?

    It was great to finally see Anita involved in a paranormal situation.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That Anita and Allison became closer afterward.


    Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I have listened to them all and I have a hard time choosing a favorite. I'm waiting for more!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I really enjoyed it, all the more because I've listened to the rest and feel "at home" with the characters. It's kind of a comforting feeling.


    Any additional comments?

    I'd highly recommend anyone who likes a haunting story, but more on the "light" side, to listen to these books.

    "I love this series"

    The books in this series are so good that I am sad when I come to the end. The characters are well developed and funny. Their are enough personality quirks that make the characters come and alive. and seem real. The plot is rich with many twists and turns so it never becomes stagnant. This is one of my favorite series and I can't wait until the next book is available.

    First Thought when Finished:Inspector Specter by E.J. Copperman was another delightful entry in the A Haunted Guesthouse Mystery series. This series has delightful characters, strong mysteries, and a ton of fun. They don't have to be read in order (I didn't), they work well as stand alone mysteries!

    Audio Thoughts:

    Narrated By Amanda Ronconi / Length: 9 hrs and 42 mins


    When I first picked up this series (about a year ago), it was totally because Amanda narrates it. She pretty much rocks! She has a voice that just screams "fun"! I highly recommend these in audio!

    I love this book. I have listened to all The Haunted Guest House stories one after the other and thoroughly enjoyed all of them. I laughed out loud on many occasions.
    The narration was so good, I was sad when I got to the end. Amanda Ronconi is a joy to listen to.

    "Cooperman has another hit!"
    What made the experience of listening to Inspector Specter the most enjoyable?

    The narrator! I love how Amanda Ronconi reads and her voices for each of the main characters never change throughout the series!


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

    Yes. But then all of this series has managed to keep you at the edge of your seat, wondering who killed the victim.


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

    Her ability to do a wide variety of voices. I could never imagine how these characters sounded.

    Story
    "A truly good read, light humorous and fun."
    If you could sum up Inspector Specter in three words, what would they be?

    fun, witty, enjoyable


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    very much the mother, she was just a loveable character.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    again, I find this question so difficult because the story, was so enjoyable and just a pleasure to read.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    yes in places I certainly laughed, but did not really cry.


    Any additional comments?

    A great read, try investigating the work also of Chris Fieldwater, he has written some great works, and I understand not everyone would enjoy his work, but in my eyes most enjoyable, much like Km woods as well and John Ringo,
