Publisher's Summary

Life is more difficult than ever at Savannah's only ghost-hunting detective agency. While Ellie copes with her mentor's departure and other unwelcome developments, she also worries about the supernatural injuries keeping her boyfriend caught in an endless slumber.

At the same time, Ellie and Stacey are called in to investigate an eerie entity haunting a baby's nursery room. The ghost appears late at night, its face barely visible on the baby monitor, and sings a chilling song. Soon, Ellie learns there are more ghosts in the house, and at least one of them is a dangerous, child-hunting monster who must be stopped before it kills again.

Yikes - have read all and this one scared me a lot!

Now maybe it won’t scare you as much, is that I essentially said it will scare you! ;)

I like so much about his writing as well as the narrator.

Side note: in the last book, I did NOT appreciate the two conservative and ridiculous pro-Trump hints: one that makes it obvious the author is a climate change denier, and the other that’s just blatantly pro Trump (I think it was about making America great again or something gross like that). That was super disappointing. I guess not a terrible shock being that the author’a from the South but still...not the smartest move he could have made. I LOVE a good ghost story but lost some respect for him after hearing those two comments. First for his ignorance and second for making such a poor business decision haha. But hey - it’s his prerogative. Blech!

shocker I think it's a case of assault?!?!

I've been following this series from the first book, but I never saw this coming. I've been on the receiving end of ownership changes but this seems to be a big drastic...if it was me I'd be back when I could walk, with a freaking ar-15 and wouldn't even give anyone notice just start spraying. if the Russian bitch could do what she did and I had no defense that might be the only way to solve the problem. this story was cruising along just like most of the books previously, then this one scene just took a DARK turn towards hell! I don't know but it ended unsatisfactory for me, many issues unresolved, but lol I guess it's a cliff hanger?!?!

Ellie Jordan’s ghost trapping adventures keep getting better.

I lovee❤️ Ellie’s ghost trapper stories. Each of J. L. Bryan’s books in this series, keep you intrigued & wanting more. I can’ wait to listen to the next one.
Some authors tend to not evolve their books and characters with their series. J. L. Bryan doesn’t do this .

Absorbing and intriguing

An interesting mix of light and dark with Ellie definitely turning a little darker. The new business antagonists are definitely creepy.

Repetitive

I enjoyed the story. However, Ellie's relationship/obsession/ history with the ghost Antwan was repeated several times. It was distracting to me and took away from the story.

Enthralled!

This is one of the very best book series I have come upon. There are no ebbs and flows here. From the story line to the characters in each book, I just couldn’t put it down!, I had to take my air buds to work and listen at every chance I had. This book series is truly an AMAZING read. …….. AMAZING👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

Stressful dynamics between characters

I listen to this series for its popcorn fantasy appeal...spooky, nothing really terrible ever happens. I didnt enjoy the 'Ellie going up against mean evil corporation people' dynamic. Hopefully the next book has the series go back to normal.

ok

This was not one of my favorites. It was ok. I read it out of sequence. That may be one reason.

Same Old stories

I keep hoping the series will eventually start developing its characters and we can see them evolve as people. But sadly it never does. The author is content to just keep writing the same stories over and over. In this book, the plot is even thinner than usual. Half of the book is just repeating the same things we've heard a million times before both in this book and previous ones. How many times do we need to hear that Ellie is haunted by a ghost that killed her parents and burned her house when she was fifteen? You can skip the first two hours of the book. It's just Ellie complaining about the new owners of the company. The rest is the same old story. Multiple hauntings, one good ghost, one evil one, etc... Even the narrator seems bored at times.

You can jump over chapters 4 to 22

After listening to the first 3 chapters I jumped the story to chapter 23 because the story was just pathetic and annoying. In normal civilizations if anyone treated an employee like Nicholas and Carey did in chapter 3 then that employee could claim against then for bullying. Ellie is not a slave nor is she in the army so why take this from them. She is the core of the ghost trapper business so why does she stay when they take over - there is no logic here.
Jumping chapters 4-22 wasn't a problem I don't think as I got the plot explained since there is endless repetition in all these books. I will try the next one but may do the same.
The performance is also awful with a speaking style so laboured as making me want to turn it off often.
