Great mystery and adventure

Another great mystery and adventure for my favorite group of ladies. Ellen, Sue & Tanya are great friends and they have already gone through one adventure together when they bought a house to fix up with a mystery. After that adventure life goes back to normal and they feel like something is missing. They need another mystery. They end of finding an abandoned warehouse for sale and they hope to fix it up like the last house. This building also has a history. But this history is anything but pretty. Before they know it the women are thrown in to a town secret and they aren't just in danger of losing money on the place. Their lives are actual in danger with threats from some bad people who don't want them digging up certain things in the past. With the help from the other side and some new friends these women take on a cause that will help people of the past and present. I loved this book! I was on the edge of my seat. I didn't know if they would actually survive this one. And the stand they were taking was so important. I couldn't help but cheer them on. I loved the issues that this book touched and I hope others that read/listen get the message that was being told. I wish I knew these ladies in real life. They are a hoot! Can't wait for more from them and their mystery loving selves.

Thrilling Ghostly Mystery

This is an entertaining ghostly mystery story that also highlights a dismal chapter in U.S. history. Ellen, Sue, and Tanya travelled to Tulsa, Oklahoma for a wedding, and while there they decide to buy and renovate a long ago abandoned, old, commercial building that the locals consider to be haunted and is linked to the 1921 Tulsa race riot. Challenges, threats, setbacks, secrets, and strange happenings make this flip project a lot more challenging and dangerous than the women could ever have expected.
This is a great paranormal mystery with ghostly activity, Ouija board messages, seances, paranormal investigation, psychics, bigots, and discoveries that tell of the dark history of Tulsa. You can not help but like these three women, they are easy to relate to, determined and have individual, realistic personalities. I loved the compassion, perseverance and strength they showed as they tried to reveal secrets that many people wanted to remain hidden. The plot is thrilling, and the author did a wonderful job of weaving facts about the race riot into the story.
The narration of the audiobook was very well done. She brought out the individual personalities of the women well and created anxiety, fear and tension in all the right places.
This second book in the Mystery House series has a bit more bite to it than the first one. It has intrigue, suspense, action, dangerous scenarios and lots of paranormal happenings. It is a very enjoyable story and can be easily read/listened to as a stand alone.

I love this series.

I absolutely love this series!!
I didn’t know about the tragedy that happened in Tulsa, Race Riot. I was shocked when I googled it to find out it actually happened. Eva did a wonderful job incorporating a sad tragedy and weaving it in her story. The mystery and paranormal activity kept me on edge while I listened to the audiobook. I highly recommend that you pick this series up. Must read!
The narrator does a fabulous job as well.

I couldn't stop listening!

Another fantastic listen in a fabulous series! I love how quirky the characters are and how this story makes me feel like I've traveled somewhere where I've never been. The descriptions of the warehouse were fantastic and I love the dialog. When I finished the book I immediately wanted the next.

Horrific history and magnificent mystery...

This is the second installment of the Mystery House Series by Eva Pohler. In this story, our 3 leading ladies, Ellen, Sue, and Tanya, decide to renovate a building which served as a community center before being abandoned and left to the inauspicious fate befalling derelict buildings at the hands of vagrants and vandals. It turns out that the building, which had long been considered haunted, is inextricably tied to Tulsa’s Race Riot of 1921. The story unfolds at a brisk pace maintained throughout the book’s entirety as the protagonists face challenges, threats, setbacks, and self-doubt. It is a paranormal mystery with all the expected trappings of such a story (spirits, seances, sage cleansing rituals, Ouija board messaging, etc.) but it is also much more. The author offers a wonderful group of likeable characters, a riveting mystery, a history lesson showcasing an authentic but truly dismal chapter in U.S. history, and a gratifying resolution that rekindles one’s faith in the possibility of goodness and justice prevailing over the seemingly pervasive evil and inhumanity perpetuated by mankind. The audio version of this story is narrated by Debbie Andreen who does an outstanding job of conveying each character’s distinct personality while reading each scene at a pace and tone appropriate to the current circumstances. Overall, this was an amazing story and a beautifully performed audiobook sure to intrigue and enthrall any enthusiast of this genre.

I was gifted an audio copy of this book by the author and the above is my honest and unbiased opinion.

Surprises at every turn.

I'm from Oklahoma. I enjoyed all of the familiar places. To my surprise I had never heard of that awful inhumane accurance
in Tulsa. Made me proude these three brave woman were able to
make things right. Even if it were only a story. Loved the ending
for all involved. Refreshing to read when people do good with there
fortunes. The three woman such great friends with no greed in
their hearts!
The narrator was wonderful!

Enjoyable

I really enjoyed this! I got so excited when I seen it was the same ladies from the first book. I somehow had it in my head that they weren't connected at all. Boy was I wrong. You can read this one as a standalone thought, there are a few references to the Gold House from the first book but nothing major.

I listened to the audio book and finished it in a day. The narrator did great!

The only reason this is a 4 star and not a 5 is because the ending felt rushed and unfinished. We only got to see part of the reno. I am hoping book 3 has any answers I might still be looking for.

Another gripping tale about haunted houses

Another interesting story keeping your attention throughout. The friends touch on every day problems and I can relate to them. Our heros are older women and that is refreshing.

I would love it more if the ending wasn't so abrupt, like the last book it gets caught up in the history of the property. Interesting but we were following the story of the three women.

Not the longest of books but the story is worth a credit.

Narrator is nicely spoken but does pause to long between chapters.
