    This engaging woo woo cozy mystery offers an offbeat cast of characters I like the persistent sleuth who also runs a guesthouse with her unusual boarders Paul is my favorite of the ghosts If you re in the mood for reading something a little different, this fun title might fit the bill.

    When a recently divorced mother of one renovates an old home into a bed and breakfast, she may have bitten off a little than she can chew During construction she and her daughter start to experience spectral sightings and by the time of completion they have accepted and welcomed their friendly, paranormal inhabitants While still trying to embrace that her first tenants are permanent and ghostly, there is an unexplainable murder that opens the floodgates for the press and local police of this small town I was wavering between a three and four star rating but about half way through the pace picked up and the characters became endearing I think this is a fun, light, cozy series that according to the reviewers just gets better and better As always, Amanda Rinconi does an exceptional job narrating.

    I did enjoy E.J Copperman s first novel in this series, Night of the Living Deed, but not nearly as much as its sequel, which was much, much better.It s the first week for single mom Alison Kerby s guesthouse which she readied in Night of the Living Deed , and a passel of seniors have come to see hijinks performed twice a day by Alison s resident ghosts private investigator Paul Harrison and over the top Maxie Malone But once a private eye, always a private eye Paul wants Alison to help investigate on behalf of Scott, another ghost, who fears he may have inadvertently killed a woman.I won t spoil anything by telling anything further about Scott s troubles However, adding to the general confusion and hilarity when the profanity laced reality show Down the Shore, a thinly veiled version of MTV s Jersey Shore, also comes to stay Readers will laugh out loud at the antics of the narcissistic, dimwitted reality stars, the eccentric senior citizens, and Alison and her family and friends I ve already bought the next two books the novel Old Haunts and the novella A Wild Ghost Chase, both published in 2012.

    3.5 stars I enjoyed this entry in the series Alison really does have the best haunted guesthouse on the Jersey shore There were some really good twists that I didn t see coming and neither did Alison I really enjoy the authors writing style very witty and sarcastic Looking forward to the next book.

    I collected this series because I love this cover Paranormal fans beg for literature with an ADULT PROTAGONIST If the gorgeous cat is a family member, it s sparse enough to evade recall even by me Humour is lovely but we need a greater abundance of suspenseful, solidly atmospheric, ADULT ghostliness When you laugh and argue with spectres and they are commonplace the spine tingling awe I m forced to continue seeking, isn t possible If at least this house had secrets, beyond one story in the first novel that would create a facsimile of suspense Alas, the house doesn t fulfill the role of wonder and discovery that it could either.In volume one, I praised E.J Copperman s humour because it worked well in dialogue, the secret was unique, and there was heightened emotion Reaching the cover that drew me I can t match ratings I laughed at the word migraine replacing all swears so the author could pepper us with them unrestrainedly Other than that, a parody of Jersey Shore filming the house and a contrived mystery with one actress, were pointless and downgraded the haunted house tone than usual It s clear the author is no fan of the show but why intrude on a ghost story to illustrate that Also, the child barging into the attic unbidden, was irritating and unlikely of her.The true case, a murdered guest and a ghost who may have harmed someone, were impressively complex and original A reader doesn t have the toolkit for deciphering it because it involves peculiar rules about the ghost realm, that the author invented I don t mind fictional concepts If he d drop the silly television thread, this would be compelling However the danger and shock of the first novel are absent Bottom line I don t read paranormal literature in pursuit of comedy.

    Lovers of smartly written, intelligently plotted, laugh out loud cozies will recognize this as the latest series from terrific writer Jeffrey Cohen I pick up one of his books whenever I myself need a pick me up I simply double dare you not to feel better about life after reading anything he writes This series is a clever, updated homage to TOPPER, and does justice to the granddaddy of all today s ghostly comic capers The perfect beach read Now where did I put that chaise lounge

    This is book two in the Haunted Guesthouse mysteries and I loved it just as much as the first one With a charming guesthouse and a few ghosts Alison has her work cut out for her When she promises Paul that she will help him solve some crimes if he helps scare the guests that stay at her guesthouse She figured it would be maybe a once in a while thing but as soon as she agreed to their pact Paul gets them a case Scott McFarlane got roped into a prank that turned deadly and he wants his named cleared and the real murderer to pay When Allison starts to dig she finds out the woman is still alive, well she was until she gets murdered at Allison s guesthouse With the past and the present coming to a big halt Alison must dig quick or she will wind up being the next victim I highly recommend this book and series

    An Uninvited Ghost by E J Copperman is the second book in The Haunted Guesthouse Mystery series Alison has opened her guesthouse to her first guests when she is also hired to investigate a possible accidental homicide by a ghost.Finding the alleged victim, Arlice Crosby, alive and well, she invites her to a seance at the guesthouse, where unfortunately she is murdered for real I enjoyed this book very much It was unlike anything I had read before and hard to put down I liked the role the ghosts played and the way they were incorporated in the mystery and the ending was totally unexpected A funny and entertaining read which left me wanting .

    Pros An Uninvited Ghost is a light and entertaining cozy with a nice bunch of recurring characters and a cute premise Alison Kerby has bought an old Victorian home on the Jersey Shore and converted it into a guesthouse Her first guests are a senior citizen tour group and the cast and crew of a Jersey Shore like reality show The seniors insist on seeing ghosts if Alison is to keep the business of the tour company and luckily her home is haunted by former owner Maxie and fellow murder victim Paul The two ghosts agree to put on some spooky shows if Alison will help investigate the occasional case with Paul, a former private eye All is going well until someone is murdered during Alison s staged seance Cons For me, the writing is a bit clunky A 106 word sentence, for example, was a total distraction from the storytelling This time I didn t mind the phonetic spelling of the police detective s name, though it s still a bit distracting The author s insistence on describing Paul s British Canadian accent annoyed me in this book No one knows what that sounds like, so stop making a big deal out of it or spell his dialogue phonetically so we have a clue Beyond these little peeves, the story for me had bigger problems I guessed the murderer on the same page as the murder The sleuth s ten year old daughter turns out to be the brains of the operation, to my dismay A lack of forethought in the mythology of the ghosts leads to a glaring problem involving what the ghosts can and cannot carry through walls If you ve already read the first book you ll doubtlessly be as annoyed as I was that a new ghost rule in the second book makes unnecessary the dark, futile wall searches that took up most of book one Also, the reality show subplot adds nothing to the story, except perhaps for adding migraine to the list of things I found annoying about this book To keep it family friendly, the author substitutes the word migraine every time a Jersey Shore like cast member says a curse word The entire subplot could be lifted out of the book to no ill effect and seemed to only serve as filler Lastly, the stunning revelation of the killer was so convoluted and contrived that it failed to get the Oh no way reaction it was going for.If you fall in love with Harbor Haven, Alison, her sweet and smart daughter Melissa, and the incorporeal Maxie and Paul, then you will love these books If you get stuck on the poor craftmanship of the old guesthouse, like I did, it might be best to find a new series.
