AN UNINVITED GHOST: A Haunted Guesthouse Mystery - E J Copperman

From the back of the book: Welcome to Alison Kirby's guesthouse.

Ghost sightings twice daily.

No breakfast is served, but murder is included.

In exchange for help entertaining her guests on "spooky" vacations, Alison Kirby told her resident gumshoe ghost that she'd help him on the occasional case. But she didn't think she'd have to go through with it---after all, who goes to a dead private eye? The answer: other ghosts.

The deceased Scott McFarlane got roped into a prank that may have killed a prominent local resident. With some snooping, it turns out the woman is alive---that is, of course, until she's Alison's house.

Now, between the demands of the guests at her Jersey Shore guesthouse and the arrival of a reality TV crew, Alison must find the killer---before she sees reality from the other side.


Alison, her daughter Melissa, her mom, and her resident ghosts Maxie and Paul have their hands full with the now up and running guesthouse, filled with a tour of senior ghost hunters and a pack of "reality" show cast and crew.

And they all want something: the cast and crew of "Down the Shore" need space to do their 'reality' gig. (I know this book is fiction, but I do believe Copperman has confirmed my thought that 'reality shows' definitely get that ' ' I keep adding to the phrase 'reality show'.....)

The senior citizen ghost hunters want to see ghosts..or at least witness ghostly activity. Maxie and Paul, the resident ghosts, are just the two to get the activity going. In return, Paul wants Alison to help him help another ghost who thinks he's killed someone.

Maxie wants the attic.

This is a really fun series to read and E J Copperman can't write them fast enough as far as I am concerned. There were neat surprises along the way and I love surprises, so long as they don't feel forced. These were smoooooth.

Five smooooooth beans.....

Glad to hear this one is good too. I enjoyed the first one quite a bit. Do we see the history teacher in the book?

Oh Vickie, I still haven't started on this series, and you tempt me with another nice review.

Jenna: I'll send this one to you, too.
No history teacher here.

Aurian: *grin*
