A Ghost Hunter Mystery

what's a Ghoul's to Do? is the first book of A Ghost Hunter Mystery by Victoria Laurie. I have read Victoria Laurie's previous books, Psychic Eye series, and i enjoyed them all. So I was very excited about reading this book. So you know how it is, you build up something and you hope that it doesn't disappoint you.

Here's the blurb:

M.J. Holliday's a medium with a message -- her business is helping lost souls cross over to the other side. But what if the ghosts want to stay put?

M.J. Holliday has two rules. One, she and her partner, Gilley Gillespie, work alone; and two, she doesn't date clients. But when handsome Dr. Steven Sable needs her help, the specter-spotting sleuth is ready to break both of her rules.

It seems the hot doc's grandfather jumped from the roof of the family lodge in an apparent suicide. But Dr. Sable knows in his bones it was foul play, and strange keep happening at the lodge. He'll hire M.J. and Gilley -- but only if he can come along. Hey, the duo needs the money -- and looking at eye candy all weekend long doesn't sound too bad, either...

But once they reach the lodge, the three realize they're dealing with more ghosts than just Grandpa Sable's. And the spooks keep playing nasty tricks on their human visitors. To the untrained eye, it would appear that ghouls just want to have fun. But M.J. knows they're communicating their distress -- and it's up to her figure out why....

It didn't disappoint! It was very good. I enjoyed the characters, M.J. a tough cookie with an incredible gift, Gilley her best friend who has a wandering eye, Doc her pet parrot, Mama the coffee house owner that can't make a good cup a coffee if her life depended on it and Steven Sable, the yummy doctor. It's fast paced, funny and with a tad of romance, just what this girl loves! Can't wait to get my hands on the next book, the teaser at the back of the book really sparked my curiosity.

Rate: 4/5, Library book.
