Overview

Driving up Highway 50 through Nevada, said to be the loneliest road in America, sure would make a body nervous. Unless, of course, you’re Agnes Barton, who welcomes the challenge and the chance to check out a real ghost town. But before she even arrives in Silver, Nevada, a mystery has unfolded in the form of a lost little girl, Rebecca, who has become separated from her family who are searching for the elusive Leister’s gold. The real kicker is that Agnes saw it all in a dream, but when they arrive at the Goldberg Hotel & Saloon, she realizes so many things about her dream are real, like the details of the inside of the hotel. It isn’t long before she learns that the hotel is haunted by various spirits from the past, further making for an interesting vacation.

Agnes is determined to find the missing family, insisting that it simply wasn’t just a dream as she learns that a family with a young daughter had indeed disappeared in the middle of the night just before they had arrived. Will Agnes and Eleanor find the missing family before they perish from the elements, or will the knife-wielding spirit called “The Cutter,” shorten their chances?

Watching established authors, she realized early on that it's not good to keep readers waiting for her next book too long. She prefers to burn the midnight oil with a strict publishing schedule, meeting her deadlines at any cost.

I have enjoyed most of the books by Ms.Johns with this being the exeption. The story was all over the place & disorganized. So very far fetched.

I enjoy all of Madison Johns books. I like the humor and the suspense. If some parts do not seem real... It is just a delightful story.

It was just rather silly. I won't choose anymore books from this author.

I loved the entire series, of course the ending become predictable, but I did not care. I love the interaction between the parties, punch lines and inner thoughts. I read strictly to be entertained and to let my imagination talk over and with Madison Johns it works.

I don't know how old the author of this series of books is, but I cannot imagine she is anywhere near the age of the main characters. I say this because the main characters are obnoxious, cartoon-like figures who bear no resemblance to anyone I have ever met. And I am around that age. Agnes, the leader of this band of characters, is nosy and opinionated beyond belief, which I'm sure fits many peoples' stereotypes of older women but is not at all charming or realistic. She's obnoxious, pure and simple. She thinks she has the right to insert herself into everyone's business, and she has a rude way of speaking to people that is highly judgmental (but for some reason no one ever challenges her). Her sidekick Eleanor is a snarky, crass woman who acts either as if she is in the beginning stages of dementia, or is just someone who never grew up. She, too, is very hard to take, mainly because she is so stupid. The 2 men in the book are caricatures of 'old men'. There hardly seems one brain between them. I read the entire book but I won't be reading any more of this author's works. If you're anywhere near the age of these characters, you will probably find it silly at best, offensive at worst. The author would do well to actually meet some average senior citizens, and ditch her obvious prejudices, before she attempts to write another book in the series. And one last comment: the African-American characters in the story are about as stereotyped as they come, and it was embarrassing to read.
