Publisher's Summary

On a well-deserved hiatus from the ghoulish grind of their TV show, Ghoul Getters, psychic medium M. J. Holliday, her boyfriend, Heath, and her best friend, Gilley, are back home in Boston. But there’s no rest for the weary ghost busters. M. J.’s ex comes to her for help - his fiance’s brother Luke seems haunted by a sinister spirit.

The crew sets up surveillance cameras to watch for the possessive poltergeist while Luke is sleeping. But when he goes outside in the middle of the night and returns hours later covered in blood, they are all very concerned - especially when the news reports the murder of a young woman in the neighborhood.

Now M. J., Heath, and Gilley must remain self-possessed as they try to stop a wicked ghost whose behavior is anything but neighborly.

    "Creepy Ghost Mystery"

    Victoria Laurie, has another winner! Funny, charming, witty and one SCARY demon make for a fantastic story. Narration was flawless and added to my enjoyment of the listening experience. The only bad thing is now we have to wait for the next book, so sad about that! Oh well, these books are great to hear over and over, so I can always start at the beginning and listen to them all again. Thanks VL, LOVED it!

    "Maybe the Best Yet!"

    I have read and enjoyed all the books of this series, but this may be my favorite yet! This was a gripping mystery that held my interest all the way through! The narrator - Eileen Stevens - once again does an OUTSTANDING job bringing the story to life. Some author/narrator duos are just meant to be and this pair is definitely on my "Must Read" list! I can't WAIT for the next installment!!! (p.s. I LOVE Gilley's character - his whininess and top-notch hacking skills make him a lovable character)

    "what?"

    What happened? All the things I love about Victoria Laurie's books was MIA in this one. Even rhe narrator, who is usually fantastic, is off. Her voices for the characters all seem to run together and there are just minor tries to add appropriate voice inflictions. Also, MJs character was not the strong stabilizing woman in this book. She was manipulation rationalize and little character development all the was around. I am still a fan and will get the next book and hope this almost complete waste of time was a fluke.

    I prefer urban/para romance right now for the fantasy aspect, but I listen to other genres as well.

    "Home is where the scare is!"
    What did you love best about The Ghoul Next Door?

    If I could give this a 4 1/2 I would!

    This book was really, really good. The last few have been good, don't get me wrong. This one though was outstanding. There were more plot twists and turns and it was slightly darker than usual.

    I liked the stories in Europe with the haunted castles, etc. and the Native American story was good. It showed a different side of the medium aspect. But this harkened back to the murder mystery side of the ghost busting. This time with a serial killer.

    Also, the crew was back home so you saw characters you haven't heard about in awhile.


    What did you like best about this story?

    They had to work back and forth between the past and the present to figure out what ghost they were dealing with


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

    Eileen Stevens did a good job


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

    No extreme reaction


    Any additional comments?

    I am looking forward to the next book. M.J. is heading back home to see her Dad.

    As a psychiatrist addiction is important to me. I am addicted to audible books, kindle books, my husband, and my thirteen cats.

    What did you love best about The Ghoul Next Door?

    She writes so good. both of her series of books are good. Just listen to one of these, the parrot will be the one you fall in love with if not the high strung assistant.

    I'm a 30-something paranormal, mystery, and humor enthusiast. For me, the main character is the most important part of a book.

    "Series is getting better"

    What I liked the best about this installment of the series was the lack of overly whining Gilly. I was a little sad not to be whisked off to some fun foreign location, but it was nice to see Stephen again, and to have the bird back.

    "Light listening for a dark story!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was a really fun listen! It was very light considering the storyline was so scary. I couldn't wait to get in my car just to hear some more. The romantic scenes were awkward in a cute way. The narrator was easy to listen to as well.

    Story
    "Spooky series"

    There is much about this series I love and much that annoys. Regardless it is entertaining and I have been hooked for quite some time.

    With this book we are back in Boston, where the who series began. I have made no secret that I thought MJ and Stephen should be together, this book makes it a point to show every example of how they just don't suit. I am sure Ms Laurie is trying to put paid to that relationship, it is successful but heavy handed. She also take every opportunity to show how perfect Heath is for her, fine I will admit he has won me over.

    Gil seems to have mellowed this book, thank goodness! He tends to be uber drama and a little hard to take. I am thrilled he is more bearable this time around. His relationship has progressed as well, it is rather sweet.

    The mystery this time is just as dark as recent books. The ghosts they are encountering are really evil. What bothers me is that they do not seem to know much about these sorts of ghosts. If you have been practicing since puberty, one would expect you would know about all aspects of your craft. They seem to come across many spectral entities that have them stumped. This is something that has bothered me throughout the series.

    The romance has progressed and they seem to be at a precipice in the relationship. I expect that the next book will have them engaged. The smexy time is strictly closed bedroom door, but they do get rather frisky.

    I listened to the audiobooks narrated by Eileen Stevens, who is delightful as always. She has a real feel for the characters and energy of the books. Her voices have been consistent and distinctive throughout. I appreciate that Gil's voice is less high pitched. Ms Stevens does a wonderful job with the creepy elements of the story, adding to the sinister feel with a truly eerie voice of the bad guy. She is always a pleasure to hear on this series.

    Overall, I am still a fan of the series and will be on the lookout for the next book. I have been with MJ and company this long, might as well take it to the very end. There are a few loose threads that need to be tied up.

    "Extraordinary"
    Would you listen to The Ghoul Next Door again? Why?

    Yes! It was amazing! It kept me up at work. It kept me in a suspense right throughout the entire story!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love Gilley he was fantastic. He lightened up the entire story. Kept me on my heels.


    What about Eileen Stevens’s performance did you like?

    She is the best narrator I have ever listened to.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! Its like watching television, you just want to sit and watch without any interruption.


    Any additional comments?

    Funny thing is I have not listen to book 1-7. I just saw this book as a daily deal and i decided to listen to the sample. While listening to the sample, I decided to purchase it. From that time, I got hook on it and just wanted to finish it as I was excited through the entire book. It gave me tears in my eyes, it gave me a smile on my face, it allowed my heart to beat at a very fast rate. I am definitely buying book one to try the rest of the series.
