Publisher's Summary

Paranormal investigator Ellie Jordan faces a difficult new case. Her new clients are a family haunted by multiple ghosts and a poltergeist that wrecks their home at night. Their seven-year-old son's invisible friends may not be imaginary at all but the restless spirits of dead children. To clear her clients' house of the dangerous entities, Ellie must unravel the mysterious deaths of another family who lived in the old mansion more than 160 years ago, and she must do it before the ghosts can carry out their malevolent designs on her clients and their children.

Fantastic premise, rather let down by detail

I read the first book in this series and decided to get this one to listen to as I knitted.

To begin with, the narrator was really good. She did a great job of telling the story. Unfortunately the story let her down.

I found the repetitions of background to be frustrating, eg we know how the "stamper" works you don't need to tell us every time you pick it up.

I found, and this is purely subjective, the characters dimness to be frustrating. Hiding details, being unable to make perfectly simple connections, non communication, etc

There were no real surprises in the plot

Another Excellent Ghost story

I really like the main character and her sidekick is amusing too! If you like Ghost story mysteries then this author is for you. This has 2 stories in it and the second one had a Unusual twist I sure did not see coming. Well written!!

Ellie continues with her scary adventures and it is just as good as book one! Love this series so far! Great ghost series! A family is plagued by ghosts and or a poltergeist. But what happens is beyond weird! So good!
The narration keeps the suspense up, great job!

Enjoyable!

This is such an enjoyable series. Yea, Yea, it does have a basic format that does not change and the story is predictable.

The history of this haunted house is interesting. Stacey -- Ellie's spunky and optimistic sidekick, is still naïve. She has a persistent desire to be in the thick of things never realizing that the truck is the best location to see ghost and stay unharmed.

We learn more about each character which adds to our enjoyment and a bonding of the characters. The motivation for the characters to chase ghost add to the enjoyment of the story.

Five Star

Another entertaining book from J.L. Bryan. If you read the first, the second will not disappoint. I look forward to the next one!

Ellie's world is getting more exciting

These books are definitely not boring, but not too scary as long as you don't listen to them when you're alone late at night. It seems like we might get some romance in the coming stories. I do wish the main plot it the series had moved forward in this book, but it was barely mentioned.

Getting better!

The story gripped me from the beginning. I listened completely enraptured by the story and where it was going, and i was truly disappointed when it reached the end, not because the story was bad, but because it was over! i want more and can't wait to hear more about Ellie and her ghost hunting whodunits. Excellent!
