Fabulous! This is the second book in the Haunted Guesthouse series by E.J. Copperman. After the first book, Night of the Living Deed, I was hooked. After reading An Uninvited Ghost, I'm still hooked. When's the third book coming out?
An Uninvited Ghost is something classic with a modern twist... it reminded me of those old whodunnit books where someone is murdered and everyone in the room must stay until the detective solves it. Though, in this case, everyone had to stay in and around Alison Kerby's guesthouse while she and her PI ghost friends tried to solve the murder of a friendly old woman. The modern twist? This is all going on while a season of the reality show Down The Shore is being taped in the guesthouse. Hello, drama! Drama especially when one of the stars goes missing.
What's great about the Haunted Guesthouse mysteries are the characters. They have distinct personalities and life goals (can a ghost have a life goal?) and they can all make me laugh.
Oh my gosh, the ending. You will not believe the ending when you get to it! It was a mystery to me the whole time, who could have been the murderer, but when you finally find out who it was, you will be shocked. It was an ingenious turn of events, if you ask me.
If you haven't read it yet, I highly recommend going and getting Night of the Living Deed. Once you read it, you'll see what I mean and then you'll be all set to read An Uninvited Ghost.
*Disclaimer: Even though I was provided a complimentary copy of this novel by the publisher, that did not effect my review of it and the opinions in said review are expressly mine.
2nd in series, and JUST as enjoyable, if not more than the first.
Alison Kerby runs a guesthouse... a HAUNTED guesthouse that is... with her daughter Melissa and 2 ghosts, Paul and Maxie.
With her first big booking since the opening, a group of senior-plus tourists, a seance proves deadly for one of her newest guests. Throw in a blind ghost accused of muder and the cast of Down the Shore (think Jersey Shore) and you have a fun romp and a wild ride for Alison and the gang. I really liked her daughter Melissa who was highly logical in figuring out the clues.
The best part of this book was the twist on the end (which i wont spoil) I am seriously hoping there will be more books in this series
One of those 'cozy' reads.
Read the first one and enjoyed the characters and story line.
Can hardly wait to get the 3rd.
Just didn't enjoy this one as well as the first Haunted. This seemed like the author was stretching just too far to make everything fit. Not the best plotting and since this is why I read this type of fluff I don't think I'll read the 3rd in the series.
As a New Jersey person born and bred I thoroughly enjoyed this book and all it's references to the Jersey shore. I'm also a ghost story enthusiast and An Uninvited Ghost did not disappoint. It was entertaining and witty.
