FROM THE BACK OF THE BOOK:
When M.J. agrees to use her paranormal abilities on a new TV show called Haunted Possesions, she hopes her gift will not be exploited. Neither M.J. nor her fellow medium Heith realizes how much they'll need to sharpen their psychic skills when one of the objects---a knife---turns out to open a portal that releases a demon.

With a beast from the lower realms on the loose in the haunted hotel where she's staying, M.J. gets the point: She and her team of ghost hunters must find a way to give evil an early checkout before the demon carves through the hotel's guests like a knife through butter.

MY REVIEW:
This is the 3rd installment of Victoria Laurie's Ghost Hunter Mysteries. It it by far the best in the series. M.J. has agreed to go on a Tv show in San Fransisco to bust haunted items, like old tea pots and the like. As soon as she arrives at the hotel named "The Duke" (the worlds most haunted hotel) she comes across a fresh murder crime scene. Now she faces many ghosts inside the hotel, who turn out to be good for piecing clues together to solve the crime... as well as a knife that releases a demonic force inside the hotel. The owner decides to hire M.J. along with another medium named Heith (also hired for the show) to bust all the ghosts in the hotel.

This was definitely the most entertaining of the books so far. They just keep getting better and better. The plot was well thought out, with lots of action and ghosts. I didnt figure it out until the very last few pages. Its a very engaging story, and its difficult to put down.

-----We will all have to wait until March 2nd, 2010 for the next M.J. story, GHOULS GONE WILD where the crew gets offered their very own tv show, called Ghoul Getters; Where they will be traveling to Europe getting into who knows what kind of trouble.-----

I loved it! I've enjoyed this series from the beginning and this installment was fantastic. I liked the change in scenery, I liked the plot, the action, just about everything. I was a little disappointed by one aspect of the reveal, but the rest of it was so good, that I can totally overlook it. (I wanted to know more about someone that played a big part in the mystery. Don't worry, I won't spoil it for you!) There was a new character introduced that I liked very much. It sounds like the author has also found an interesting way to keep things moving with upcoming books. I can't wait for more in this series! :)

I loved it! It was one of those books that I had to stop periodically to tell anyone nearby how much I was enjoying it. Absolutely the best of the series so far. Full of suspense and creepiness yet it still feels fun and cozy. MJ and her friends are likable and crazy fun yet believable and the story is full of ghosts, demons, international intrigue...I can't wait for the next one!

Finally Laurie broke away from that whole Scooby Doo feel that these book have had in the past.

With business down, Gilley Gillespie decides to a add a bit of revenue by signing M.J. Holliday up as a psychic on the new Haunted Possessions show, filmed in a haunted hotel in San Francisco. All she has to do touch a family heirloom an tell a little something about the object. Easier said then done when a mysterious knife suddenly appears at the table and literally all hell breaks loose. Now not only the friendly spirits of the old hotel are coming to visit, but the very dark and very dangerous ones are making themselves known.

This book seems to be a bit darker then her previous ones, the actual murders and assaults are more descriptive and without the usual humor to off set them the feel is a bit heavier. Not to say that this book doesn't have humor. The interaction between M.J. and Gilley is and always has been very funny. I do hope that Heath, her co-psychic on the show, will make future appearances in this series, he is a very good balance to M.J.'s character without the whole sexual tension thing that writers seem to dwell on.

Ghouls Just Haunt to Have Fun is the third book in the Ghost Hunter Mystery Series. Very much in the psychic meets the TV series Ghost Hunters vein, which is a very interesting combination. Very different from her Psychic Eye books, but still just as good. If you are looking for a little bit more bite to you cozy mystery reading, check out this series.
