M. J. Holliday is a psychic with her top skill being a medium who can communicate with ghosts. She gives readings and makes her grateful clients feel good by telling them the truth; unlike the numerous charlatans. She and her partner are also ghostbusters who send evil spirits back to where they came from. They are now on Briar Street, the most haunted street in Scotland. Under the street is the close (several caves and catacombs) where victims were sent to die from the plague.

While they are on Briar Road, the interest of the hundreds of spirits make M.J. and her co-worker medium Heath Whitefeather almost insane. Inside the close the same phenomena happens with the ghouls of the plague screaming. They would love to leave immediately, but they are contracted to Bravo TV to film what they find at this location. To make matters worse, the centuries dead witch Rigella who cursed the village of Queen's Close because they murdered her and her sisters are brought back by a villager to murder seven descendents of the families that killed them. When their tech expert is attacked by ghouls, M.J. and her crew becomes the target of a mortal who is in league with the witch because brake lines were cut, which means the witch has a human helper. When another villager dies, M.J. and company investigate determined to find the witch and her mortal assistant.

Victoria Laurie is the queen of paranormal mysteries as her fourth ghostbusters whodunit brings the reader into her world (see DEMONS ARE A GHOUL'S BEST FRIEND and GHOULS JUST HAUNT TO HAVE FUN). Ghouls Gone Wild. is a hauntingly good whodunit filled with plenty of action above and below the street. The cast is solid even the spirits while the two protagonists are fully developed especially when the supernatural haunt their senses. With plenty of humor including with a Potter meets Bedknobs and Broomsticks battle of flying brooms, fans will enjoy ghosts, ghouls, and witches, oh my.

    Intriguing

    The paranormal story part was quite interesting, but the characters kind of fall flat for me. There are some twists I definitely didn't expect. I think the tv show part of the series might need a few changes. The author is incredibly creative!

    Love the Series...Book #4...Now My Favorite

    The part of the story dealing with the supernatural entity is great. Details are fabulous and allow you to develop a minds eye for most of the read. Same thing for all the previous books. There were two things that disappointed me with this book. Ghoul Getters is too hokey for this series. Introducing it in book #3 made me a little concerned about what was to come and my intuition (perhaps I'm a sensitive...wink) was correct. The TV show aspect does nothing to improve the stories or make the books more interesting, in fact, it kind of makes MJ and Gilley seem like hokey media hounds, in other words, decreases their likability. The next aspect is the love interest part. I think the stories will become even hokier and less "believable" if the series moves, from a relationship perspective, in the direction hinted at in the end of #4. With all of that being said, Victoria Laurie's Ghost Hunters Series is fantastic and I hope, eventually MJ and Gilley have an awakening and return to their roots as ghost hunters.

    Fun Escape into Mystery and the other side

    This series is a fun escape for the mind into mystery involving characters both human and paranormal. The lead characters are fun and very likable and the plots are fun without being too intense or scary. The author also uses her experience as a psychic medium to educate the reader about working with the other side. This is a very enjoyabel series to read.
