The Ghost in the Closet by M. K. Theodoratus

Seeing ghosts has caused Dumdie Swartz a world of trouble since she was little. Now in her advanced years, she lost her job because her boss thought she was having strokes and became homeless as a result of her gift. Dumdie is forced to sleep in her car in a shopping mall car park.

When she gets the chance of a room in an old house that has been transformed into a shelter, she jumps at the opportunity to sleep in a comfortable bed once again, but even in her new sanctuary, she cannot escape from the dead. Just when she thought her life is beginning to turn around, the ghost of the former owner of the house reaches out for her help.

Dumdie is forced to choose.

Should she risk upsetting the rest of the occupants with her story by helping the spirit to find peace?

Should she ignore the ghost and walk away, forcing the shelter to close?

This very short novel rushes speed ahead from the first paragraph. I was impressed that a clear characters were able to be developed in just 22 pages, and have a plot that was interesting from beginning to end. You have to feel sorry for Dumdie, as it is not her fault that she see's spirits-this seeing of spirits is what landed her in the homeless shelter {old mansion-refurbished} to begin with. While some know of her abilities, nobody was prepared for a spirit to contact her at this location. This was supposed to be the beginning of her road back from losing everything. When the shelter is in danger of closing its doors is where all the puzzle pieces start to fall into place. Who is the spirit? What is the spirit searching for by reaching out to Dumdie? This is one book that you should take the time to read to find out the outcome. Brilliant use of characters, descriptions, scenes, and fast paced plot.

"The Ghost in the Closet" is a paranormal novel involving an interesting character named Dumdie Swartz, who has the ability to see ghosts. I find it interesting that the author chose to set the location of the story at a homeless shelter, and that Dumdie is afraid of ghosts. I like the development of her character as she learns how to overcome her fears and eliminate the ghost that threatens her safe haven at the homeless shelter.
