Publisher's Summary

Do you believe in love after life?

Looking for a fresh start, Peyton Clark becomes the proud owner of a piece of New Orleans history: an Antebellum-era two-story house in the Garden District. It’s going to take time and a fat wallet to restore the fixer-upper to its former glory, but after her recent divorce, Peyton could use the distraction.

It’s not long before Peyton discovers she’s moved into the haunted home of a flirtatious paranormal prankster. She’s receiving kisses from unseen lips and caresses from a ghostly hand, and soon she begins to have vivid dreams, bringing her face-to-face with the incomparably handsome ghost of Drake Montague.

When Peyton grows closer to her general contractor, Ryan Kelly - who is as charming as he is alive - the chill in the air could only suggest Drake’s jealousy from beyond the grave. But even though she’s definitely attracted to and interested in Ryan, Peyton also can’t get Drake out of her dreams, or her heart, as she begins to uncover the frightening truth behind his death a century ago…

    I love action and suspense embedded in a good fantasy or mystery. Sprinkles of romance okay, but no erotica please.

    Any additional comments?

    The first half was an introduction to a romance story, ghosts didn't come in until much later. The ghosts were okay. I listened to this at 1.5 speed to get through it faster. I'm hoping now that all the groundwork has been done, the next book will have more action and less angst.

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

    Story
    "Better than Dulcie."

    I liked Mallory's Jolie Wilkins series, and the first half of the Dulcie O'Neil books.

    I thought this was much better than the others. Its contemporary with some ghosts instead of a completely different paranormal world, which was nice. It wasn't quite so over the top and the romance didn't feel forced.

    Story
    "Excellent Listen..."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Ghouls Rush In to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print edition .. so I have nothing to compare it to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed Peyton and Ryan's courtship.. so to speak. It was nice to see them become friends and things slowly go from there. But, the whole story was good. I enjoyed hearing about her new home and the plot was excellent. The Axeman. Everything seemed very believable. I also enjoyed the two that came to exorcise the house. The freezing air, the house shaking and moaning. I wonder what will happen when Ryan finds out she is possessed? Guess we will find out in the next book?


    What about Kate Rudd’s performance did you like?

    I thought she did an excellent job with Peyton's voice but I wasn't thrilled with The way Ryan sounded. He was described as extremely handsome and very manly that the voice just did not do him justice.


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

    I laughed in some spots but really it was neither funny or sad.

    I enjoy reading series and very rarely read stand alone series. I mostly read romance and sci-fi & fantasy.

    Story
    "A disappointing ending"

    This was a fun and quirky book when I first started. As the story went on however I found it to be a bit dragging. I loved the narrator she did an amazing job. This is a book you can enjoy on an afternoon of cleaning. I'm not sure how the rest of the series is going to be, but this first book was for me lacking.

    The biggest problem I have with this book is the lack of substance. Everything in the story line is one dimensional and flat. The worst of it was the ending. The author built up to a dramatic and really a pretty epic ending and it just is like the author didn't know how to finish the book. I know that this is a series and the ending should be a cliffhanger, but this wasn't a cliffhanger it was a plunge off a shier rock face. The author missed the mark completely in my opinion.

    Story
    "Great story but the narrator got to me"

    I'm a big fan of HP Mallory and I truly enjoy her stories. My problem with the audio was when he female did the male voices. They reminded me of Toni Collette's character Buck on United States of Tara. Any time the author did a name voice, regardless of how the character was described, all I could picture was a butch female in biker clothes.

    Aside from that i enjoyed Peyton Clark's adventure as she fixes up her aunts house and falls in love with her contractor, Ryan Kelly. Although I wanted to strangle her at the end when she allows herself to be possessed and never tells Ryan about it. Cannot wait to read the next book! This was fun to listen to when I was stuck in traffic to and from work

    "I couldn't finish it."
    What could H. P. Mallory have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    She/he could make Peyton Clark a little more likeable.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kate Rudd’s performances?

    NO!


    What character would you cut from Ghouls Rush In?

    Peyton Clark. Her favorite phrase, which she used quite often, was "Blah, Blah, Blah".


    Any additional comments?

    New Orleans and ghosts. A great combination and it should have been an enjoyable book. I might have been able to listen further but that woman's blah blah blah; got to me.
