Ellie Jordan's job is to catch and remove unwanted ghosts. Part detective, part paranormal exterminator, Ellie operates out of Savannah, Georgia - the most haunted city in the United States. When a family contacts her to deal with a disturbing presence in the old mansion they've recently purchased, Ellie first believes it to be a typical, by-the-book specter, a residual haunting by a restless spirit. Instead she finds herself confronting an evil that is older and more powerful than she'd ever expected. The dangerous entity seems particularly interested in her clients' 10-year-old daughter. Soon her own life is in danger, and Ellie must find a way to exorcise the darkness of the house before it can kill her, her clients, or their frightened young child.

I enjoy reading -romance, mystery & paranormals. Some of my favorite audios are: Harry Potter, Fablehaven, Cat & Bones & JD Robb.
Absolutely. I was looking for something spooky for Halloween and I hit the jackpot with Ellie Jordan. I live in the Savannah area and am fascinated by the history and stories here. I especially enjoyed the tidbits of local color. The mention of restaurants, libraries, locations and other details really allowed me to put myself in the story.
Too many too count. I made a huge mistake and started listening before bed. I lost that night sleep and expect to lose another as I am halfway through book two of the series.
I loved this entire book. It was the perfect combination of spooky (not horror), and realistic enough to make me happy that our home is not on the historical register. There were no romantic elements at all in the first book and while that is my favorite genre, I liked the book enough that I didn't miss it.
Highly recommended this book, I also appreciated the fact that the narrator did not attempt a southern accent. Thank you Ms. Mercer-Meyer. If that accent is not done well, it totally ruins the book. I do wish that the rest of the series was on Audible, but, Kindle will have work for now.
...the story picked up and I had a great time. I love paranormal stories, usually romances, but I was tired of romance and wanted to listen to a good story. The reason I gave it 4 stars is because it did start a little slow, with a little too much information regarding ghost hunting that most people (at least those who watch ghost hunting tv shows) would normally know. Obviously, that's a very subjective point of view. Later, though, the story began to gather speed and became very interesting, so I bought the second book with its Audible edition to enjoy during my commute.
I liked Bryan's style of writing, and Meyer just made it more interesting. Kudos because combination managed to keep me entertained throughout the entire audio. I recently listened to another similar audio-Ghost Seer by Robin D. Owens and was happy with that one but realize now that this one was better. Ghost Trapper was packed full of mystery, action, a slew of well rounded characters AND a narration that was a pleasure to listen to. I can't wait to see how the rest of the series measures up.
I wasn't sure what to expect but it sounded interesting so I thought I would give it a chance and I am glad I did!! A murder mystery with Ghosts that was well told, well written and scary enough to give me the chills! I didn't want it to end!
A little slow to start, once the foundation was mostly in place the story took on spooky momentum and sassy internal dialogue and kept the pace increasing. I kinda wish all of the equipment and ease of photographing anomalies was so easy in real life. I guess that's why we get to read it in fiction! Nicely done and a great first in a series.
the narrator was great. easy to listen to and understand.
the story was fun. good character build up for the ones that mattered. I enjoyed it and look forward to reading the next one in the series.
Western North Carolina Geek trapped in the triangle. Love to get lost in a good epic fantasy/horror book anytime.
I really enjoyed this book. I can't wait to start the next book in the series. Great story and narration.
This was an interesting book that was different from other books I have read about ghost hunters. The characters were likable and the plot was engaging. I will probably buy the next one in the series.
"Spooky and mysterious read"
Anyone who follows me knows I am a big fan of these books, and each new installment gets devoured as soon as possible. I love being scared and Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper has the perfect blend of paranormal, some humour, and story line. When I saw Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper on audible I knew I had to have this. Even though I have read the series so far, I like getting to hear the story through someone else.
I went into Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper knowing what to expect, but when I began listening to it I realised I had forgotten a few little bits of the story near the beginning, but I was able to piece the bits together quite easily. The plot to this story is just as good the second time around, but with someone else doing the reading it somehow made it just that much better.
Audiobooks are what I listen to at night, and looking back Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper probably wasn't the best option, especially when I continued to hear noises which I thought was my cat, only to look around and have no cat in the room. I loved everything about Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper, and although my review queue is long for audiobooks, I still can't believe I have to wait another month to get my credits back to pick up the next installment in this series.
Carla Mercer-Meyer narrated really well for Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper. I was really drawn into the story and I fell in love with her interpretation of Stacey.
I think I love the audiobook more than the book itself, it has a way of drawing you in and really feeling the environment and atmosphere of the hauntings. I can't wait to add to my collection and jump into this series again via audio.
