Even though I like romance, this book was supposed to be a mystery, hence A Ghost Hunter Mystery on the cover, but the mystery is thrown in around the rather awkwardly written romance between M. I did think the first chapter was good because I thought M. What I like about the P. Mysteries are that they are fresh, fun, very well written, and the characters are for the most part believable. Not to mention, I got extremely tired of reading Steven's choppy English 'what do you say? I don't know why V.
But I've noticed Ms. Laurie has a bit of a redundancy problem in her books, even if I do love Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye, which has the 'liar, liar, pants on fire' repetition, where when someone lies, Abby's 'inborn lie detector' goes off with that chant.
I would not recommend this, although I'm sure many as seen in the numerous four and five star ratings would like this as it's not completely horrible; it's just not very fresh even if the subject is interesting. I haven't quite made up my mind if I'll pick up the next in the series. View all 8 comments.

Since that night a couple of weeks ago when I kept reading this idiotic book, I haven't had any desire to pick it up again. I think I was having an emotional night that briefly shut my brain down. This book is basically every reason I don't read "chick-lit". There's the sassy, beautiful, totally independent gal who is not looking for love, but is momentarily thrown by an encounter with a very attractive man. Uh oh, I thought. The last thing I need is a client this attractive.https://midnauloacolu.tk

The words Roman no Since that night a couple of weeks ago when I kept reading this idiotic book, I haven't had any desire to pick it up again. The words Roman nose are used to describe people. I think all chick-lit authors must be following the same manual that insists that they use "Roman nose" or "aquiline nose". In the name of sanity, are there no other kinds of noses out there?!?!?
This phrase: "What are you about a size four? Because heaven forbid anyone be above a size four! There's also the scene where her heel breaks another requisite chick-lit scene and we get this thrilling writing: limping quickly down the street up three inches, down three inches, up three inches, down three inches.
And don't even get me started on Steven. He's this renowned foreign surgeon who is apparently brilliant but doesn't know the difference between the word "skeptic" and "septic" because I'm sure a surgeon working daily in a hospital would NEVER use the word "septic". Basically every freaking interaction with Steve had M. I don't know, maybe it was not fun the first couple times, but when it's already happened about a dozen times or so it felt and I'm only 76 pages in Lord save us all. Good thing super smart, intelligent M.

So yeah, this is major DNF. If it wasn't on my kindle I'd probably burn it. Sep 16, Bird rated it did not like it Shelves: didnt-finish. I fully admit I didn't even make it half-way through this book before stopping. Not only that, but it took me months to make it that far I carried it around in my purse, and only read it while waiting in line at stores , and I found myself dragging my feet every time I had a few minutes to read it.
The characters leave something to be desired. Each of them was a walking stereotype. Flamboyantly gay assistant, gorgeous best friend so good looking men walk into walls when she's around , and a Eur I fully admit I didn't even make it half-way through this book before stopping.

The doctor part wasn't funny to begin with, and certainly not after the dozenth time in as many pages. But my real problem is that I read on the inside back cover that the author considers herself a "psychic. It directs me to her website if I have additional questions, so I mosey on over. Does she really like writing books, or is it just a great way to drum up business for her psychic hotline?
Every time M. We get it already, M. My husband has been forced to listen to my griping about this book, and when I told him I was finally giving up on it and writing a decidedly negative review he said, "Don't worry, I'm sure the author's already expecting it.

I liked the ghost hunting aspect. Some of the spectral activity seemed a bit over the top, but the author is a clairvoyant and a police psychic, so I'll give her the benefit of the doubt. I loved the gay sidekick, Gilley, and the African parrot, Doc. I'm not too sure about yet - perhaps her personality will develop more in time.

Steven Sable - nice romantic interest, but the running joke with his English started wearing thin about halfway through the book. The plot was interesting, but had some holes. On the whole, I enjoyed it and want to see where the series goes. Description from book jacket : M. Holliday has two rules. One, she and her partner, Gilley Gillespie, work alone; and two, she doesn't date clients.

It is first book in the Ghost Hunter series which I am reading for a Yahoo group. I found a well written book by an experience author. At times I was enthralled with the story, other times I was disgusted with it and stopped reading for awhile. I am finding it hard to rate. I found Dr Steven's language idiotic by the end of the book.
At times I found the paranormal activities hard to beli This is a new author for me. At times I found the paranormal activities hard to believe. What mystery there was did not become apparent until the end of the story. MJ has been a physic all her life and teamed up with Gilley in grade school. MJ owns a parrot called Doc and he livens up the tale. The romances were really a distraction. MJ will no longer do readings for anyone she wants a ghost to help pass over to the next plane. At the lodge, lights, TV and other objects turn off and on at well. Objects move around and there appears to be more than one ghost in the building.
Will the ghosts find peace? I will read other books in series and will read her other series. Nov 15, Lolly's Library rated it it was ok Shelves: part-of-a-series , paranormal-mys-suspense.

Okay, so I'm a flibbertigibbet; I'm wishy-washy, flaky. So sue me. I've been rethinking my original impressions of this book and came away with the awful realization: I got snowed by the bird. I was so entranced by Doc who was the most well-rounded character of all that I completely ignored the annoying flaws of this book, the most glaring of which was the idiotic foreign-speak of the love interest, Dr.
