Once again Sue Ann thrills with Emma and Granny. The whole family plays more of a part in this story, which I liked. The adventure Emma and Granny go on actually was almost in my backyard. What's in the future for Emma and Phil? Sue Ann leaves you wanting more, and more soon! LOL This is a wonderful read, I didn't want to put it down once I started. It's another favorite!

Format: Paperback
Emma is surprised to get a lunch invitation from Joanna Reid. The two had never been close and hadn't spoken since her husband died a few years before. Joanna is convinced that her late husband, Max, is haunting her and wants Emma to make him go away.

A few hours later, Emma learns that Joanna's daughter Lainey is in a mental health facility after three attempts to commit suicide. Lainey and Emma's own daughter are good friends, so Emma pays the young woman a visit. After the talk, Emma thinks that a ghost might be involved in Lainey's attempts on her own life. But is it Max or someone else? Can Emma figure out the cause in time to keep Lainey safe?

I've enjoyed the previous two books in this series, and this was the strongest yet. The characters, both living and ghostly, are vivid and pull you into the story. There were times some of the characters were doing some stupid things, but even then I usually felt sorry for them.

The plot moves forward on two levels involving the present and the past. Both mysteries are compelling, although I usually found myself more involved in the modern mystery. Yet the historic mystery packed a real emotional punch in the end.

There was a sub-plot I didn't like because Emma was being stupid and complicating her life. I'll be looking forward to seeing how that gets resolved in future books.

This is a compelling read with great characters that will keep you turning pages until you reach the end.

I have read all of the books written by this author, Sue Ann Jaffarian. I have enjoyed each and every one of them. The Granny Apples series gets better with each and every new book. You need to read all of her series. She has three, The Odelia Grey series, The Madison Rose series and of course Granny Apples. This author has a way of not only letting you enjoy the current book; but at the same time you want the next one to appear magically so you can continue to follow the lives of the characters.

It is a good book,but not as good as the first two. Story line was ok but I didn't care for the jerky movements of the story. I also missed some of the main characters in the story, that were in the first two books,but noticeably silent in this book. Granny really should have played a more important part but I guess she was busy elsewhere. Spoiler !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I also did not like the romantic turn for worse.

This is the last in a set of three granny apple ghost stories. Have really enjoyed all three and downloaded all three of them. Easy read which is enjoyable and not too heavey a read. If there was a fourth one in the series I would buy it

Best Granny yet. Cannot wait for the next one. I will be on pins and needles about the relationships. Do not want to give anything away so I will stop now.

Really enjoyed the first two books and loved this one until the end. Was very disappointed in the direction the author went with the main character Emma and her choices regarding her personal life. Not sure I will continue with this series.

I love Granny Apples. She fits in with television and many of todays inventions. I have wondered about evil ghosts but Granny was able to take care of it.
