Publisher's Summary

On a trip to Georgia to see her father, M. J. Holliday finds herself trapped in a haunted mansion and discovers... The South will rise again - from the dead.

M. J. has had a distant relationship with her father since her mother died more than two decades ago. But when M. J.; her boyfriend, Heath; and her BFF, Gilley, take a break from their show, Ghoul Getters, and visit her family home in Valdosta, Georgia, they find Montgomery Holliday a changed man. The source of his happiness seems to be his new fiancée, the charming Christine Bigelow. But despite the blush of new love, Montgomery and Christine are dealing with a big problem in the form of the antebellum mansion she is having renovated.

After a series of strange accidents, the work crew is convinced the place is cursed, and the contractor has walked off the job. At Christine's request, M. J. and her pals agree to find out if they're really dealing with some spirited saboteurs and a possessed plantation home.

    "Victoria's best book EVER!"

    This book is the most serious, well-written, frightening book ever written by Victoria Laurie. I highly recommend this book. It is the most mature storyline attempted by this author. It is a well executed ghost story with an underlying serious subject matter.

    While there are still some comic scenes in the book, the majority of the story is serious, sentimental and brilliantly written. MJ goes home to Georgia on vacation with Heath and Gilley. There MJ meets her father's new fiancé and finds her father to be happy, loving and content in his new life. The fiancé is a delightful person. Of course the vacation is interrupted by the most destructive, personal fiends that the ghost hunters have ever come across. This book make me laugh, cry and enjoy every single word.

    Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.

    "Another good installment"

    Very good story that was well told. I still like the Psychic Eye series better (easier to suspend disbelief). Still, who doesn't like a good ghost story?

    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.

    "You Can Go Home Again"

    NO GHOULS ALLOWED
    By Victoria Laurie, Narrated by Eileen Stevens
    c 1/6/2015

    Victoria Laurie has developed a series that revolves around a team of ghost busters. Prior to publication she asked me to read an advance proof of NO GHOULS ALLOWED, the 9th in the series in exchange for an honest review. I would be delighted, I told her, knowing that her series was terrific, the perfect blend of fright, humor, friendship, and family. Each book relies on the one before and adds an element or two. Each book in the series is a bit scarier or introduces a character or explains one of the ghostbusters personalities. Was it necessary to read all 8 books before NO GHOUL ALLOWED, no. Victoria Laurie is a fine author who gives enough back story so you know what is going on without giving so much that previous readers roll their eyes at too much repetition. That balance is tricky, and I would say Ms. Laurie has it down pat. Would it be helpful to read the previous eight books in the series to enjoy NO GHOULS ALLOWED? Yes! But is it necessary, no.

    It is time for MJ, or Mary Jane, to return home to Valdosta, Georgia where she and Gilley grew up and became BFFs. MJ’s mother died from cancer when MJ was 11 or 12, and a darkness surrounded her, her father, and their home until recently. Now MJ has found love with Heath, and her dad is to marry a kind and lovely woman named Christine. MJ’s dad and Christine invite MJ and her friends to their own small wedding. MJ expects the same stiff, unfeeling, angry man that her dad had become the day her mom died.

    MJ is shocked when she finds first a warm and welcoming home, the same one she grew up in but yet brought back to life; Christine, a beautiful bride-to-be, full of life; and a warm, welcoming father, to whom she almost doesn’t know how to respond. As she visits with them, she learns that Christine is trying to renovate the old Porter Mansion, the biggest home in town, but construction crews keep walking off the job after incidents or accidents. When the Ghoul Getters go to Porter Mansion, they manage to escape slamming doors and flying objects and locked windows that are just a peek at the consequences of a decades-long, very intricate set of relationships between spooks and humans.

    This investigation combines finding and eliminating the bad spooks as well as discovering things in our own live, human nature. The spooks are VERY spooky. The inquiry is aided by the fact that MJ and Heath are deputized by the sheriff after he is stabbed, while Gil does his part researching certain things they question. If you fear Ouija boards or find them alluring, this book is for you. After figuring out this mystery using loads of good detecting work and a fancy bit of spook catching, the world in Valdosta changes. I can’t tell you how or I’d have to call those demons back.

    MJ has learned many valuable lessons by book’s end through contact with her late mother and many, many scary times, past and present; times that scared me as the reader as well. Rest assured that my electric bill will be higher this month from all the lights I had on while reading, day or night! I’m sure there are words of wisdom I will take with me, once I’m no longer too frightened to think of them, that is. I’ve read many a scary book, but this one, NO GHOULS ALLOWED, frightened my socks off. Maybe Gil will share some chocolate, now that I’m finished.

    "Not my cup of tea"
    Would you try another book from Victoria Laurie and/or Eileen Stevens?

    Yes, but this one was definitely too dark for my taste.


    What could Victoria Laurie have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I can't say without giving too much away.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll be returning this one. I can't see myself ever wanting to listen to it again. It was disturbing enough the first time. There are some subjects I can't handle and this book touches on one. Since it would give away too much of the plot and I don't want to ruin the book for someone with a stronger stomach, I'll just say it touches on something befitting an episode of Law and Order: SVU.

    Really enjoyed this book. The narrator bothered me a bit at first, but I've gotten used to it.

    "Best in series"

    I have to agree with last review Best one yet! I have read the whole series, this one brought MJ home to come to her fathers wedding and to meet his bride Kristine. Kristine had bought a 10,000 foot mansion and was renovating it but accidents were happening and crews keep quoting. So Kristen asks MJ & Heath to check it out. They encounter their worst experience yet and the story unfolds. I have enjoyed this series and hard to put down. The story teller is excellent.
