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.

I totally love this series. Great stories and great characters. It is fun and funny. Alison is a hoot and Amanda Ronconi does and great job. She makes this series come hilariously alive.
Thank you both!

Enjoyable entry in the series

Two quibbles....The narrator’s attempt at a “island” accent is dreadful. It makes no sense that someone could be allergic to a ghost dog.

Ekk, Jumped The Shark?

Up to this point this series has been cute and entertaining for me and offered a reliable piece of escapism. Although very formulaic I have enjoyed the characters and even the mysteries. This book, however, pushes down on the formula petrel way too hard such that the story flows poorly and gets annoying. Also, the plot is a good bite more ridiculous than the other books. There is a scene about 3:15 in that I can't get past and am having to put the book aside. I'm not sure if I'll attempt the next in the series. This might have killed it for me.

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.

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

An Enjoyable Listen.

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

My least favourite of the series

Before I read the reviews I had no idea what the odd accents were supposed to represent! The narrator has a very harsh voice anyway, but usually one can reduce volume and it is acceptable and comes across as a southern US accent which is appropriate! But really! Those 'British' accents were so very weird, with each being amix of Irish, Scottish, Liverpool, and US accents, absolutely awful! One of the guests sounded Jamaica /Irish?

This detracts from the whole tale, and also Alison's self deprecating humour is getting very old and over the top!

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.

'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.

Music, murder and red herrings.

Ghostly (dead) music idols and murder in an enjoyable cozy mystery novel. The trademark wry humor and tons of red herrings, without getting too confusing, makes for a literary equivalent of Easy Listening.

OK, Ronconi's English accents are bad, but otherwise she does such a great job that I still enjoyed her narration.

The English accents are terrible !

Gentle continuation of the story of Alison Kirby and her resident ghosts. This one has some ‘English’ accents and although I usually like the narrator I wasn’t keen on these. I’ve marked the performance down for this but it hasn’t put me off the rest of the series

Sorry Amanda

I really enjoy these books - however I'm getting fed up of the constant bitchiness against the female ghost and , sorry the narrator Amanda cant do any English or Irish accents - it spoilt the story.
