Publisher's Summary

Murder and mystery on the Jersey Shore from the national best-selling author of Inspector Specter....

Never meet your heroes - especially when they're dead....

Guesthouse owner, single mother, and reluctant ghost whisperer Alison Kerby is about to sit down to movie night with her family and friends when she's struck speechless. Floating before her is the ghost of her musical idol, 1960s English rock star Vance McTiernan. He's in desperate need of help from Alison and her resident ghostly gumshoe, Paul Harrison.

Reports claim that four months ago, Vance's daughter died from a drug overdose. Vance, however, thinks she was murdered. While Alison agrees to help, Paul is suspicious of Vance's motives. But after the body of the alleged killer is found in the movie room, Alison and Paul must act quickly before someone else finds a stairway to heaven....

Love this series!

I've listened to all these books and they are just fun! I wish I could find more just like it. And the narrator, Amanda Ronconi, is fantastic. I actually found this series by searching for books she narrated. Can't wait for the next one! You'll love it if you try it.

Awesome listen

Where does Ghost in the Wind rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It ranks as one of my favorites

What was one of the most memorable moments of Ghost in the Wind?

I liked when all the ghost got together with John Lennon

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I couldn't think of one, but a series of movies would be awesome

Any additional comments?

I just love this series, and always looking forward to the next one to come out, and I love Amanda Ronconi's performance.

Fun series

I love this series. The characters are fun and this one has a scene with musicians that is unreal. To have really been a part of that scene would have been awesome.

Rambling story

Story rambled excessively. Interesting setting and plot but definitely not an edge of your seat thriller.

Thought it was going to be a Ghost Story

Narrator was tolerable. Humerous ghost stories are like Thorton Wilder's Topper series. This one is just tiresome. I gave it up pretty quick as it seemed like there was a bunch of stereotypical characters whose only feature of interest was that a lot of them are dead. Not spooky and not funny.

Love this series.

This is such a cute series. It has everything needed to catch and keep your interest. The characters are wonderful and Amanda Ronconi is fabulous as always!! It's funny, sarcastic, intriguing, and just an all around good storyline. I look forward to the next book!!

'British' accent unbearable to listen to

Just started this and am not sure I can carry on!
Amanda Ronconi is usually my all time favourite Audible narrator and can do no wrong, but her approximation of an English accent is nothing short of horrific. For a British listener, imagine nails down a blackboard but worse.
It sounds like a strange mix of Irish, Scottish and some kind of odd twang I'm not even sure exists in real life. I mean, c'mon, how hard is it to do a cockney or even a posh English accent? The book itself is great as the books in this series always are, but given I'm cringing every time the English character speaks I might have go skip this one and go onto the next.

If you can get past the terrible English accent...

...it's a good story :)

it's a light hearted quirky series and this book is just as good as the others.

The characters are likeable.

A refreshing new take on a much beloved saga

This series of books belongs to my comfort-reading selection, so I enjoyed the familiar characters and places and the white humour that has me chuckling often while I listen to Alison's shenanigans and life views. In this installment, the ghost element takes a new turn I found very imaginative and enjoyable. E.J. Copperman has managed to find something pleasant and new to bring into each of the books, and I loved every one of them.

An Enjoyable Listen.

Enjoyed the whole story. The biggest flaw was the terrible English accent, which was one of the worst I have heard.

Another fun and witty outing

performance usually excellent but marred by the most appalling rendition of english accents the provenance of which remain a total mystery to me.

Enjoyable

I have thoroughly enjoyed the series so far, light crime investigation and it’s easy to listen to Amanda’s voice witj the pacing just right. Bit of a niggle with this one in the confusion of accent for Vance in this episode. From the story it should be Liverpudlian, but sadly the ‘sort of Irish’ is mildly irritating to this Brit. Not enough to give up, but…

Accents!!!!!!

Having listened to the whole series so far, this one is definitely the weakest.
Over the past few stories you get a good feel for the characters and the storyline and yes they are entertaining in a quirky way, and on the whole the narration has be ok, unfortunately on this occasion the narration coupled with a weak story was too much. The accents were awful! the English characters accents seemed to roam from Liverpool to Irish and even sounded Scottish in places, the London cockney accent was just weird and the one guest with the e-reader was a mix of the Caribbean, Irish and Liverpool.
I stuck with it just to obviously to find out who dunnnit, but those accents! 🤭

The worst accents ever.

I love these book, but the main "British" character was a mixture of English, Irish, Scots and Liverpudlian some times in the same sentence. I'm still not sure where one of the female guests was from. However I still liked the story.

Good story, dire accents

Would you listen to Ghost in the Wind again? Why?

I probably wouldn't listen to this one again. I'd read it, because the story is fine, but the awful attempts at English accents by the narrator made me cringe. They not only sound nothing like the accents stated in the text but several of them rove the various regions of the British Isles without settling on any of them... dreadful.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Alison - main protagonist all the way.

How could the performance have been better?

Not attempting the English accents would have been preferable to mangling them. It's a shame because, on the whole Amanda Ronconi is a very good narrator.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Nope

Story ok narrator terrible

Throat lozenges would have made Amanda Ronconi's performance as a narrator bearable. Female narrators are being chosen more and more with this annoying habit.
