lighthearted humorous haunted hotel horror thriller

Her instinct told her to just say no, but in spite of being a medium M.J. Holliday ignores the internal warning that acquiescing to her business partner Gilley Gillespie¿s idea of appearing on a Bravo TV show is a loser. Instead she agrees to join a panel with three of her paranormal peers. The two partners accompanied by the medium¿s significant other travel to Dr. Steven Sable for the TV appearance.

When they reach the Drake Hotel, the trio learns that a woman fell from the edifice. M.J. consults with the victim and informs the cops she was murdered. Soon afterward, she meets the rest of the TV panel and concludes two of her so-called peers, Angelica DeMarche and Bernard Higgins, are fakes. However, she and the other legit member Heath Whitefeather from the Land of Enchantment soon find themselves battling a paranormal malevolent who haunts the Drake.

The latest ¿Ghost Hunter¿ mystery (see DEMONS ARE A GHOUL'S BEST FRIEND) is a lighthearted humorous haunted hotel horror thriller kept focused by ¿graveyard¿ serious M.J. and in this case Heath. The rest of the cast except for the evil haunter bring either amusement or eeriness; especially fun is when the two fake California psychics encounter their first real paranormal. Fans will enjoy the supernatural murder investigation as GHOULS JUST HAUNT TO HAVE FUN lives up to its title.

The only reason I am reviewing this book is because I couldn't believe that something so badly written could get published. I picked up the book as something fun to read while on vacation but I wish I chose something else. I found myself correcting the grammar as I went along. The story was so convuluted by the number of characters to keep track. Somehow you are supposed to care about them when you can't keep them straight? Also there were portions that seemed more like "How I Do It" of being a psychic rather than story. Overall poorly written, poorly edited, and ridiculous. I expected something much better

    Ghouls Just Love to Disappoint

    I'm not going to waste any more money on the Ghost Hunter series. This book was very disappointing. Victoria Laurie can't write for crap, and her characters really aren't all that fascinating, so all she has left is a good plot. This started out well--I liked the idea of the knife being a "portable portal" and the demon/smoke monster (although the smoke monster made me think of "Lost") and it was fairly creepy and enjoyable. Then she lost it. She neglected the best part of the novel, the ghosties, and concentrated on the half-assed criminal/stolen property subplot. Not very interesting. Also, any time the police appeared in this novel, they were COMPLETELY unbelievable. It was ridiculous. Although Ms. Laurie thinks she is quite the witty and amusing writer, she ISN'T. Her characters are so underdeveloped and uninteresting that they don't have enough personality to say anything funny. The most humorous character is the parrot Doc and he barely makes an appearance in this novel. I was sorely disappointed by the ending to this novel. Ms. Laurie must have been baking cookies or doing laundry because the novel came to an abrupt, crashing halt and everything was quickly solved, including the demon problem. Don't buy this book. Don't do it. Borrow it from a friend who owns it or your local library. It's just not worth the $8 you'll pay. If you want to read some good creepy books with a hint of humor, check out my suggestions. They are funny, the characters much more likeable, and the creepiness is really good.
