M.J. Holliday and her crew are sent to Kidwella Castle in northern Wales to film her ghost hunting cable TV show, Ghoul Getters. It is said to be haunted by a deadly ghost they call the Grim Widow. The Grim Widow is said to drown guests in the moat and roam the halls. M. J. and her boyfriend Heath find themselves face to face with a nasty ghost on their first night and two new victims are added after the crews arrival.
I have mixed feelings about this book. I enjoyed the ghost chase, history discovery and mystery but other parts became annoying. The "What was that" Did you hear that" Panic at every turn and not being able to tell a ghost from a live person became very old fast. They are professional ghost hunters, you would think after a while they would do the shut up, observe approach and not the OH NOOOO RUNNNN AND SCREAM. PLEASE like I said, got old. I also find it annoying to have a person on the crew that truly does not want to be there and just adds unnecessary drama to the task. I am tiring of some of the characters lack of growth and others being self centered.
It's a Victoria Laurie book, so you know it'll be good no matter what. However, I must say that this was not one of my faves of hers. I liked the backstory and the Widow's attacks and also the fact that there was a human murdered on the loose as well, but I felt the story was drawn out a bit too long and that the book could have been shorter with some parts deleted that didn't need to be in there. The most annoying part (and I think I might have said this in my review of her previous Ghost Hunter book) is the character of Gilley. OMG, he was SO enough to make me skip pages where he was whining/complaining/screaming. I really hope that this character improves in the next titles.
