Alison's shady ex needs to use her haunted guesthouse as a hideout in the latest from the national best-selling author of Ghost in the Wind.
Where Alison Kerby's ex-husband goes, trouble follows. This time, unfortunately, he's brought that trouble right to her doorstep. On the run from a business deal gone bad, Steven, aka "the Swine", owes some scary people a staggering sum of money. No need to panic, though. He has a plan: sell Alison's Jersey Shore guesthouse to pay them off. Before Alison has a chance to read Steven the riot act, he disappears - after a mysterious man trailing him ends up full of bullet holes. Now the police are next to darken her doorway. For all his faults, Steven is still the father of Alison's daughter, so with the help of ghosts Maxie and Paul, Alison sets out to find her ex and clear him of the murder. But if the bad guys get to him first, he may not have a ghost of a chance....

Yes, there is a flavor of a finale, without giving anything away, you will realize with the new developments, the storyline has opened a whole new direction for our favorite characters. I did check on E J Copperman site to assure myself and discovered Berkeley publishing has decided not to renew this series but another publishing house has opted the series for at least 2 more books, hopefully many more. Yay, big sigh of releif. The next in the series currently scheduled for 2018.
I adore this series it's fun, with great repartee between the character. Equal parts mystery and fantasy, throw in some snark wonderfully portrayed by the talented Amanda Ronconi and you're in for a rollicking good time! The books are stand alone but if you want to thoroughly enjoy this series start at the beginning. If you love paranormal mysteries with humorous repartee this series is a must. Stop reading if you are sold. Not sold yet, consider this...after sustaining a bump on the head you can suddenly see and talk to ghosts, and these ghosts can contact other ghost, one of these books has John Lennon and "friends" jamming in your bed breakfast. One of the ghost isn't wild about how you are decorating your house and employs inventive way of expressing displeasure, one a frustrated detective knocked off on his very first case. If ever I need my "spirits" lifted l find myself frequently revisiting this favorite ghost series. Guaranteed fun!
I love the way E.J. Copperman writes, it's as if the main character is speaking to you. Amanda Ronconi gives a perfect performance, bringing all the characters to life and giving them distinct voices. I highly recommend this series and suggest starting at the very beginning of the series.
This is the best in the series. I have a feeling it's the end. If so, I will be sad because I have really enjoyed it. If not, then, I look forward to the next one.
I hope this is of the wrap-up to the series, it is one of my quirky cozy mysteries. It feels too much like a series finale.
I was a little bit disappointed by Amanda Ronconi's performance in this one. Don't get me wrong, I have grown to like her performances and have bought books because she was the narrator, but in this one she seems to loose the characters' voices occasionally.
I recommend this series. Read them in order from the beginning.
I can now do my work and listen too. Hearing a professional reader is the best--great way to pass time.
I greatly enjoy reading this series--but listening is better with Amanda Ronconi as a narrater----5 stars to you Amanda. As for the story itself---it adds to the storyline--but also ties it up with a bow. Is this a fare well? I've heard there is more to come, but only a rumor. Let's hope it's true and we'll see an new book soon.
