A Wild Ghost Chase is a novella falling between the third (Old Haunts) and the fourth (Chance of a Ghost) in E.J. Copperman's Haunted Guesthouse mystery series. I have been a fan of this series from the beginning, so I was a little surprised that I didn't enjoy this novella more than I did. Don't misunderstand me: I did enjoy A Wild Ghost Chase, just not as much as others in the series.

Unlike the others in the series, A Wild Ghost Chase is narrated by Paul, one of the spirits living in Allison's Jersey Shore guesthouse. A private investigator while alive,Paul was murdered in the course of his first investigation for his first client - Maxie - the other spirit at the guesthouse. Since becoming a ghost, Paul has continued his business - sort of - with the help of Allison. But for this case, Allison is mostly out of the picture, and I think that her presence and involvement is what I missed the most.

Paul's client is an eight-year-old boy, a Native American who died over two hundred years earlier of small pox. Paul, at the urging of Allison's ten-year-old daughter Melissa, agrees to help find the boy's mother. But as the investigation progresses, Paul, Maxie, and Melissa quickly realize that all is not as it seems. The twist was one that I definitely didn't see coming - but that I found to be very clever and smart.

Overall, a good read. I really missed the narration, personality, and voice of Allison, though. She brings so much to the story and canvas of each book. I love the relationship between Paul and Allison and those scenes were some of my favorites in A Wild Ghost Chase.

I've read all of the Haunted Guesthouse books by E. J. Copperman, and thoroughly enjoyed each one. This short story (novella?) was no exception. A little of the settings history, the same witty characters and a continuation of the developing side story between the PI ghost and Allison (the guest house owner). The well defined characters each come alive with their own quirky mannerisms and foibles. Believable characters you get to know and sympathize with. Looking forward to the next one coming out in February. I would recommend this series with no hesitation, although the first book does require a slight suspension of belief to buy into the premise.

I must admit in the beginning I wasn't to sure where the author was going with the story but half way through it becomes clear. I also like that this story was told through Paul(the resident private eye ghost) point of view. In the end (and of course I'm not going to give the ending away) this story has a more of a feel good vibe and I would recommend A Wild Ghost Chase to anyone who likes E J Copperman or a cozy ghost story. Well written and all to easy to get absorbed into the story for the afternoon or evening. I would have given more stars but I wanted more story, that's the problem with a good book or
story they always leave you wanting more.

I fell in love with the Haunted Guesthouse Mysteries from the first book I read. It's a fresh outlook on the paranormal, ghost, stories and it's well worth your time to read it. It's a different sort of story line about a single mother who buys an old rundown mansion along the beach in a small town in New Jersey. She finds that when she starts to renovate it into a B&B she already has two guests, the former owner and a private detective she had hired who had died in the house. It's an adventure to find out who had killed them, how and why. I've read the entire series and I HIGHLY recommend it for followers of the paranormal!!!

It's always a treat to read individual ideas of what it's like to be a ghost. Everyone has a different imagination and this series is no different. I recommend starting with the first one in the series and continue to read them in order. The books and characters continue to evolve as they become slightly more comfortable with each other. I love how one of the ghosts really shows how she favors one more than another. (interesting how human foible continue on) I truly can't wait to read the next one.

This book, and the others in the series, make light enjoyable reading. They will not be everyone's cup of tea but they are well wriitten and with humor. The ghosts are fun and no one takes themselves too seriously It is easy to get into the flow of the plot and there are few "holes" where things are so unbelievable that the fun is lost. I enjoy them but not everyone will

This is told from the point of view of one of the ghosts, Paul, rather than by the guesthouse owner, Alison. Though I missed Alison's personality entwining through the story as it does in the other books in the guesthouse series, I enjoyed the story very much. Wish it had been longer. Went through it in a flash!

This was a short story featuring some of E.J. Copperman's favorite characters.This was about the ghosts and their quest to find the mother of a small boy who also happen to be ghosts.

I enjoyed this because it was a little different than the usual cozy.It was a heartwarming story.
