I love me a good ghost story and this one definitely fits into that category. The story concerns Betty; by day she is a marketing exec and by night she’s a paranormal investigator. Betty and her crew go around Savannah, Ga. investigating the local’s claims of their houses being haunted. I was hoping there would be more concentration on the paranormal investigation parts, however Beth made up for the lack of that with the story line. The first case discussed is Sam McIntosh’s house; this turns out to be more than a ghost which leads a dateless Betty into meeting the man she eventually falls in love with.
I’ve never read a book that kept me engrossed as this one did. I literally read this in about two days. I wanted to know just what was going to become of Betty and her new beau Maxwell. You see, he is no ordinary man; Maxwell is a demon! Beth's description of Maxwell's charisma and looks makes it understandable why Betty fell head over heels for him. I never thought I would look at a demon in a romantic sense, but Beth makes one think that not all demons are out to torment everyone they come in contact with. This book is a very good read and I am looking forward to reading more of Beth’s work and to follow the Ghost series. She has a very flowing and easy manner of writing. It’s down to earth and what I call normal every day people talk-- I love that! I give this book 5 stars!

Author Beth Dolgner certainly knows how to dole out the shivers: I pretty much screamed my way through the Prologue (and loved it). Turns out I was frightened with good reason, for the case which Betty and her Savannah Spirit Seekers set to investigate involves not just a scary haunt, but a malicious spirit who trails physical injury in its wake. But Betty and her crew find they have competition in locating this elusive haunting: egotistical paranormal diva Carter Lansford, the media darling, is on the hunt as well, and Carter entangles “Betty Boo” into researching an important investigation he has contracted, at a historic downtown Savannah law firm, where there is more than meets a surface examination. Certainly this is the first case in which Betty has encountered someone who claims to be a demon, introducing himself as the man with the answers to the malicious spirit haunting the McIntosh home. Delightfully written, and filled with wonderful geographical and historical input of Savannah, Georgia, and its near environs, “Ghost of a Threat” will have you racing to turn pages in expectancy of the next event. The pacing is fast, but the attitude is cosy, inspiring readers to warm up to the characters, wishing to get to know them better, as if we’re making friends for the first time. Protagonist Betty Boorman is a decisive, determined, individual, one who is distinctly comfortable in her own skin and her own life, cognizant of the choices she has made, and not particularly anxious for anything she may or may not be missing. I found her unusual as a female paranormal investigator-in-charge, but given her character and interests this fits right in, and she does a marvelous job of operating The Savannah Spirit Seekers, even when the competition is intense and the media spotlight is trained on the vain Carter Lansford. “Ghost of a Threat” is a good read, and I anticipate more from this talented author. This is Book One of the “Betty Boo, Ghost Hunter” Series,Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

While I will admit the start of the book is a little slow going, I absolutely loved the plotline to this novel- the idea of demons and ghosts (while not entirely new) livving in the same reality and their co-existence has been taken to a whole new level!Was this review helpful?

A little slow in the beginning, but the budding romance between the heroine and her unlikely love interest keeps you reading. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
