Do you believe in love after life?
Looking for a fresh start, Peyton Clark becomes the proud owner of a piece of New Orleans history: an Antebellum-era two-story house in the Garden District. It’s going to take time and a fat wallet to restore the fixer-upper to its former glory, but after her recent divorce, Peyton could use the distraction.
It’s not long before Peyton discovers she’s moved into the haunted home of a flirtatious paranormal prankster. She’s receiving kisses from unseen lips and caresses from a ghostly hand, and soon she begins to have vivid dreams, bringing her face-to-face with the incomparably handsome ghost of Drake Montague.
When Peyton grows closer to her general contractor, Ryan Kelly - who is as charming as he is alive - the chill in the air could only suggest Drake’s jealousy from beyond the grave. But even though she’s definitely attracted to and interested in Ryan, Peyton also can’t get Drake out of her dreams, or her heart, as she begins to uncover the frightening truth behind his death a century ago…
Would you consider the audio edition of Ghouls Rush In to be better than the print version?
I have not read the print edition .. so I have nothing to compare it to.
What did you like best about this story?
I enjoyed Peyton and Ryan's courtship.. so to speak. It was nice to see them become friends and things slowly go from there. But, the whole story was good. I enjoyed hearing about her new home and the plot was excellent. The Axeman. Everything seemed very believable. I also enjoyed the two that came to exorcise the house. The freezing air, the house shaking and moaning. I wonder what will happen when Ryan finds out she is possessed? Guess we will find out in the next book?
What about Kate Rudd’s performance did you like?
I thought she did an excellent job with Peyton's voice but I wasn't thrilled with The way Ryan sounded. He was described as extremely handsome and very manly that the voice just did not do him justice.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I laughed in some spots but really it was neither funny or sad.

Ghouls Rush In was a good mix of mystery, romance, and a haunting combined to create a story that was refreshing, funny, flirty, and mysterious. The century old mystery was very interesting, slightly scary at times, along with a brush from the other side.
May Contain Spoilers:
Recently divorced Peyton, moves into an old house she inherited; however, it needs a lot of renovations, and appears to be haunted. When she first moves in, she meets Ryan, a neighbor who lives close by. There's an immediate attraction between them, and lots of innocence flirting. She convinces him to be her contractor, and oversee the renovations that need to be done. The other man in her life, Drake, comes to her in her dreams, and has been watching her closely since she's moved in. Until she stumbled across some old newspaper clippings about a murder over a century ago, he was unable to communicate with her; however, now that her mind is open to him, he visits in her dreams. He's sexy with a French accent. While the house is being renovated, her attractions and relationships grow, along with the mystery that needs to be solved.
Kate Rudd has narrated lots of stories along with some best sellers. Her performance really animated this story, I loved how she preformed Drake's character and his accent.
While considering this audiobook, I noticed mixed reviews which gave me pause; however, I am glad I decided to listen to the story and was not disappointed. The century old mystery, along with the blooming relationships, and the supernatural element definitely held my attention.
I took advantage of Kindle Unlimited and borrowed the audiobook for free; however, this story would be a great whispersync deal, or buy at the sale price.

I liked Mallory's Jolie Wilkins series, and the first half of the Dulcie O'Neil books.
I thought this was much better than the others. Its contemporary with some ghosts instead of a completely different paranormal world, which was nice. It wasn't quite so over the top and the romance didn't feel forced.

The first half was an introduction to a romance story, ghosts didn't come in until much later. The ghosts were okay. I listened to this at 1.5 speed to get through it faster. I'm hoping now that all the groundwork has been done, the next book will have more action and less angst.

This was a fun and quirky book when I first started. As the story went on however I found it to be a bit dragging. I loved the narrator she did an amazing job. This is a book you can enjoy on an afternoon of cleaning. I'm not sure how the rest of the series is going to be, but this first book was for me lacking.
The biggest problem I have with this book is the lack of substance. Everything in the story line is one dimensional and flat. The worst of it was the ending. The author built up to a dramatic and really a pretty epic ending and it just is like the author didn't know how to finish the book. I know that this is a series and the ending should be a cliffhanger, but this wasn't a cliffhanger it was a plunge off a shier rock face. The author missed the mark completely in my opinion.

This was an extremely enjoyable book! I am so happy that the author researched the subject in a way that lent a little credence to the story.
Ok, I liked the story, theme, and the characters. Left a few unfinished storylines but overall it was good. The title of the story is a little misleading in that Ghouls are not a part of the story...ghosts, yes.
I'm a big fan of HP Mallory and I truly enjoy her stories. My problem with the audio was when he female did the male voices. They reminded me of Toni Collette's character Buck on United States of Tara. Any time the author did a name voice, regardless of how the character was described, all I could picture was a butch female in biker clothes.
Aside from that i enjoyed Peyton Clark's adventure as she fixes up her aunts house and falls in love with her contractor, Ryan Kelly. Although I wanted to strangle her at the end when she allows herself to be possessed and never tells Ryan about it. Cannot wait to read the next book! This was fun to listen to when I was stuck in traffic to and from work
What could H. P. Mallory have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
She/he could make Peyton Clark a little more likeable.
Would you be willing to try another one of Kate Rudd’s performances?
What character would you cut from Ghouls Rush In?
Peyton Clark. Her favorite phrase, which she used quite often, was "Blah, Blah, Blah".
Any additional comments?
New Orleans and ghosts. A great combination and it should have been an enjoyable book. I might have been able to listen further but that woman's blah blah blah; got to me.

If you could sum up Ghouls Rush In in three words, what would they be?
from the headline of my review. i will sum into three words.<br/><br/>1. FUNNY<br/>2. ROMANTIC<br/>3. BREATH OF FRESH AIR (tho those are four words)
What about Kate Rudd’s performance did you like?
Kate Rudd's performance was incredible!!<br/>compare to other narrator i listened to Kate Rudd is by far the best.<br/><br/>I like her performance...she is awesome!!!! I am totally sucked into the story when she narrated. <br/><br/>she does it effortlessly. (i don't know about other people's perspectives but i like it)
Any additional comments?
I don't know why the audiobook is sold at cheap price but i am sure glad it did because i honestly....LOVE LOVE LOVE....this audiobook. <br/><br/>i think that this book needs more recognition. it might be slow at times but its part of it just need to wait it out.<br/><br/>I hope to have more books like this or more then just two books.
