What’s a Ghoul to Do?
(Ghost Hunter Mystery #1)
by Victoria Laurie
This is my second time reading this, I read it first back in 2013. I never got around to reading the final book in the series, so I wanted to do a complete series re-read and this being October, what better time to read a ghost hunting book?
In this book, we’re introduced to M.J., a psychic medium who can communicate with ghosts and (hopefully) move them on and best friend Gilley. They’re hired by wealthy and debonair Dr. Steven Sable to contact his recently deceased grandfather, Andrew, at the family lodge. The investigation concluded that Andrew committed suicide, but Steven doesn’t believe it. They set out to investigate and uncover a dangerous plot.
This one is on the outer edges of cozy mystery (there’s a few *ahem* adult situations that are more than what are typically seen in a cozy, but not explicit, think PG-13 rather than R rated) but the crackin’ good plot; while a bit over the top, made for an exciting read (the swimming pool scene! *gasp*) and I think that’s what I love about this series, along with how well the paranormal element is woven into the story. The ghosts offer up a few clues, but the actual investigating comes down to M.J., Steven and Gilley.
An excellent read, definitely recommended for fans of paranormal cozy mysteries.
