Title: What's a ghoul to do?

Author: Victoria Laurie

Publisher: Signet

Copyright: 2007

ISBN: 978-0-451-22090-5

Series or stand-alone: #1 in new series

Setting: Boston, MA

1st Sentence:

"Good morning, Miss Holliday," the real estate agent cheerfully greeted me outside 84 Dartmouth Street.


I had a patron Interlibrary loan this book and then never pick it up. I can't let a book go to waste so I took it home.

This book is the first in a new series. The main character MJ Holliday is a ghostbuster and one-time medium. Gilley is her best friend and sidekick/partner and she has an African Grey that knows all the right things to say. Together they take a case busting the ghost at a family lodge/mansion belonging to Dr. Steven Sable. His grandfather apparently committed suicide and is now a lost soul. Unfortunately, he's not the only one and there are some nasty mortals hanging around the compound as well.

The jury is still out on how I feel about this series. I really like her Abby Cooper series so I'm having comparison problems. I will definitely read the next book in this series to give it a fair shot, but this one was a little too cozy for my tastes.

On a positive note, I loved the bird's rendition of YMCA.
