A Ghost Hunter Mystery

Mass Market Paperback, 281 pages
Published April 3rd 2007 by Signet

M.J., her partner Gilley, and their client, the wealthy, de-lish Dr. Steven Sable, are at his family’s lodge, where his grandfather allegedly jumped to his death from the roof-although Sable says it was foul play. But the patriarch’s isn’t the only ghost around. The place is lousy with souls, all with something to get off their ghoulish chests. Now M.J. will have to to quell the clamor-and listen for a voice with the answers…

Now that its fall I love to find a good paranormal mystery and I found it in Victoria Laurie’s Ghost Hunter Mystery series.  M.J. Holliday is a psychic detective who talks to the dead to help the living.  Along with her fabulous partner Gilley (who is terrified of the supernatural) she uses he gift, some nifty tools, and some good old detective snooping to solve many problems.  Sometimes she rids a house of evil so it can be sold, gets spirits to move on, and solves murders.

Overall, I’m not a huge fan of ghosts but I love everything about a mystery; especially one that I can’t solve halfway through the story.  This  book will take you through a gauntlet of emotion; for me it was a tie between laughter and sorrow for the dearly departed.  However, between the antics of Gilley and M.J’s talking parrot (whom Gilley has taught some colorful phrases) and a sexy semi-English speaking doctor; this story does a wonderful job of lightening an otherwise dark tale.

This book does have some romantic underlays between characters however, it is a paranormal mystery first and foremost.  I bought this book for my own collection.  All of the opinions are my own.  The image and description can be found on Victoria Laurie’s website which can be found by clicking on the image.  Happy Reading!
