    Alison Kerby returns in the fourth Haunted Guesthouse Mystery se

    Alison Kerby returns in the fourth Haunted Guesthouse Mystery series by E.J. Copperman. Alison, a single mother in her late thirties, runs a guesthouse in her childhood hometown of Harbor Haven, on the Jersey Shore, inhabited by her and her precocious ten-year-old daughter, as well as Maxie Malone, Alison’s resident Internet expert, and Paul, an English/Canadian professor turned detective, both of whom have lived there since before their deaths. It would seem that Alison and her daughter, as well as her mother, are the only ones who can see the ghosts.

    At Paul’s urging, Alison had obtained a private-investigator’s license, and her services as such are sought by her mother’s own ghostly friend, who wants Alison to find out who killed him. While his death six months previously was deemed to have been of natural causes, he is convinced he was murdered. The investigation morphs into a search for the ghost of Alison’s father, who died five years ago, but whose ghost has been strangely absent of late. She is aided in her efforts by her mother, her daughter, her best friend Jeannie, and her present [living] houseguest, who is a retired cop and delighted at the opportunity to do what he did best, and misses a lot, as well as by Paul and Maxie [who Alison refers to as her two “non-breathing squatters”].

    As with every book in the series, this newest entry contains the same unbeatable combination: a terrific plot and great if quirky humor [if you like that sort of thing – and I do!!]. I particularly loved the line about the heating system in Alison’s ancient Volvo, which was “roughly as efficient as the United States Congress, which is to say it made a lot of noise but got very little done.” The protagonist’s slightly bemused attitude toward the apparent fact that ghosts actually exist, and that some people could see/hear them, seems perfectly reasonable. This book, as were the earlier entries in the series, is thoroughly delightful, and highly recommended.

    The laughs keeps coming as I read all about Alison’s escapades in her hunt for a killer and the search for her missing father. What makes this book amazing is the relationship that exists between Alison, her family and her two *spirited* partners. I love that they are a more cohesive investigative team using all the resources available to them. The writing is excellent with non-stop humor and clever and witty dialogue. I got a laugh out of those sneaky snide comments on topical subject matters that were interwoven into the story. This is one of the best book in this delightfully charming series and I can’t wait to see what happens next in the adventures of Alison and her team.

    In Copperman┬┐s paranormal mystery novel, Alison, her mother, and

    In Copperman’s paranormal mystery novel, Alison, her mother, and her daughter all see ghosts—it runs in the family. But her widowed mother has been secretly dating one: Alison’s deceased father. But when he stops coming by it leads to the question: Is he a lost soul now or just MIA?

    The only lead comes in the form of the dramatic deceased spirit of a stage actor who wants Alison to find her murderer in return for him finding her father. Alison reluctantly pulls out her P.I. license and starts nosing around only to find the clues turning more sinister at each turn.

    Entertaining, funny, and totally charming. Another great installment to the, A Haunting Guesthouse Mystery.

    As those who've read other reviews of mine know, I love a bit of paranormal in my mysteries, so this series is right up my alley. 




    Alison is having strange dreams about her father, and it just ramps up her disappointment that her dad hasn't visited her since she's been able to see spirits.  Her mother and daughter have seen him so Alison's a bit hurt since she was so close to her dad.  Then through her mother, she meets a very interesting ghost Lawrence Laurentz, who wants Alison to solve his murder...and to up the ante he tells her that if she doesn't help him then she'll never be able to talk to her father. 




    With the assistance of "resident ghosts" Paul and Maxie, Alison sets out to find the killer.  Toss in a new possible suitor, one couple staying at the guesthouse who Alison fears will leave because they think she's nuts (lol) and you have another roller-coaster ride.
