    Scandalous Spirits by Beth Ciotta was an enjoyable read with som

    Scandalous Spirits by Beth Ciotta was an enjoyable read with some endearing characters that will keep a reader entertained.
    Daisy Malone has been hired by Marcus Van Buren’s assistant to investigate his family’s mansion and declare it ghost free so he can sell it. Daisy is a certified ghost hunter (she studied with two established ghost hunters and took classes over the internet). What she refuses to recognize in herself is that she is also a sensitive and can really connect with ghosts. Marcus Van Buren has inherited the family fortune but has made it his own and is driven to “live down” the family scandals from the past. Although he is often in the newspapers as a playboy, he is actually a workaholic that hopes to eventually find his HEA.

    The secondary characters range from Daisy’s immediate family and the three ghosts of the Van Buren family. The ghosts in the story are “stuck” in the family mansion and haven’t been able to move on. They don’t know why they are stuck and often get bored with each other since they can’t leave. Their conversations were witty and sad at the same time. Daisy’s family are all working class folk that have hit a rough patch and are doing the best that they can to make it through. Their day to day dramas were typical of most large families; but I felt that they often pulled me out of the story.

    Daisy and Marcus first meet at the mansion and that meeting is quite confrontational on Daisy’s part. The story then moves on to the developing attraction between Daisy and Marcus as Daisy tries to do the job that she was hired to do - “prove there are no ghosts in the mansion”. Which is where there is a big problem for Daisy because she knows that there are ghosts in the mansion because she has seen one.

    This was a decent story although it never really pulled me in completely. I would definitely try another one of Beth Ciotta books because I did enjoy her writing.

    I received a copy of Scandalous Spirits from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
