Overview

House of Whispers by J. L. Bryan, Carla Mercer-Meyer

The luxurious Lathrop Grand Hotel is a Savannah institution that has entertained guests for more than a century and a half, offering some of the finest accommodations in the city. Famously haunted, the hotel draws tourists from around the world eager to encounter its numerous ghosts. The hotel is also known for being honeycombed with hidden doors and secret passages, enabling staff to appear and disappear quickly as they attend to the hotel's guests.

Now some of the spirits in the Lathrop Grand have turned violent, even murderous. Ellie and Stacey must determine which ghost has become dangerous and remove it from the hotel before it can claim any more lives. They soon learn the hotel has secrets even darker than the notorious string of nineteenth-century murders that made it famous, and the powerful entities inhabiting it don't intend to leave without a fight.

Couldn't put it down. I'm on to Book 6 and hope the rest of the series is as good as the first 5.

It’s so hard to review books this far into the series. You can’t say much or you’ll be spoiling it. I love a good haunting and what’s better than a haunted hotel. The Lathrop Grand Hotel has been around for a long time. Many ghosts haunt it’s halls. People come in large numbers and book a room, hoping they’ll have a ghostly encounter. They get much more than a brush with a spectre as the haunts become violent. It’s up to Ellie and Stacey to find out why the ghosts are so threatening. If they don’t do a bit of ghost trapping, guests could be harmed, or worse, killed. I swear I was a ghost myself as I followed these gals through the halls, down the stairs, and into secret passages. The atmosphere in this book gave me the shivers. And I’ve become even more of a fan of the character’s. All of them are adapting to the many changes in their lives. Stacey is stepping up her game as she works with Ellie. And Ellie is becoming more confident and comfortable in her own skin. This is another winner in the series and I’m now on to the next book, curious to see what these character’s get into next.

What a series! I'm so glad I found it. Got the first one free and promptly bought the rest of them. All I can say is, "More, more, more!"

I am HOOKED on Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper! I have to force myself to put the stories down, and then wonder why I can't fall asleep! Very spooky. And yes, ghosts CAN hurt you

Ellie and Stacey are sent to a hotel in Savannah to rid the place of some very dangerous ghosts that seem to be wreaking havoc on the place. What they find is truly disturbing and hard to imagine. If they make it out of this alive it will be by some great miracle. Because these ghost are not playing around. In fact, it will be an all-out war to the end. I have been waiting for the author to cover a storyline just like this one. I am a huge, HUGE fan of haunted hotels. Ever since I was little I have always traveled with my mother to Eureka Springs, AR for her to do her crafty thing. And each time we'd go, I would have to visit The Crescent Hotel. I won't go into all the details, but research it if you haven't heard it. It is definitely worth the time. And I have done the ghost tours it offers 3 times now. Such a fun experience. Anyhow, back to the book. Like I mentioned, I knew the author would have to cover this storyline eventually and I am so glad he did. This book really rocked and I was creeped out more than once. Probably the fact that I started it on Halloween night. But oh so worth it. The author covered a lot of areas that ran parallel with that of the Crescent's history and hauntings. So everything was really believable for me. Now I have a big urge to head up there and take the tour again. *Sigh* If only I had the time to do it. All in all, HOUSE OF WHISPERS was an excellent read and a fabulous addition to an already fabulous series. I am wondering what Bryan has in store for Ellie and the future of her personal life and work life. It is all up in the air at this point and could go just about anywhere. 5 Stars!

Great book--the story features a spiritualist group of people in the Victorian age.
