I usually like Victoria Laurie's books and was really looking forward to reading this one. Unfortunately it turned out to be a major disappointment. It was pretty violent, which isn't typically a big deal for me, except her books are not usually like that so it came as a bit of a surprise. The dialogue at times was pretty juvenile. I started to get really tired of the word spooks. I also felt the characters really lacked in this book as well. Gilley's constant whining and melodramatics were a bit much. I found myself becoming more and more irritated with his character. His unrelenting terror of the paranormal continually makes you wonder why he even works for MJ in the first place. I liked Heath in her other book, but in this one I found him somewhat sleazy. I understand that Ms. Laurie is trying to incorporate some sort of love triangle, but MJ does in fact have a boyfriend and it seemed to me that Heath didn't respect that. It was a turn off. I even found myself disliking MJ herself. She went from a very strong female persona to kind of a mega b***h. She was snapping and lashing out at people throughout the entire book. She came off as selfish and arrogant. Everything had to focus on her. Even Heath's grandfathers spirit talked to her instead of his own grandson! That really didn't make a lot of sense to me. I also didn't care for the fact that her relationship with Steven was so non-existant in this book. I found that kind of odd. I think they spoke on the phone once the entire time she was in Scotland. If you are going to create a love triangle, it helps to include all people so you can actually get a feel for the character being torn in two.Read more ›

I listened to the Audio Download. The narrator, Eileen Stevens is really good. I just had a hard time finishing it. Something was missing...I missed Steven. He had become part of the group and he wasn't in this one, except for the last 30 seconds. I was disapointed in MJ for being wishy washy and had a hard time not calling her names when she was going gaa-gaa over Heath.

The story was good, but not as good as Ghouls Just Haunt To Have Fun. Gilley whines way to much though and it's getting old.

If the character Steven is not going to be in the books, I won't buy another one.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the fourth book in the Ghost Hunter series featuring M.J. Holliday and her sidekick M.J. Gilley.

Halliday and Gilley have signed up to do a reality show on ghost hunting. In Ghouls Gone Wild, Halliday and Gilley along with Heath Whitefeather, another strong psychic go to Scotland to check out the caves near Edinburgh which have long been known to have strong supernatural happenings.

Ghouls Gone Wild was pretty violent and wasn't a gentle read. The mystery was interesting and Laurie executed it well. My biggest issue with Laurie's books has to do with dialogue and words she uses. For instance in this one there is a scene where she yells "Holy Freakballs." There is another scene with a pug dog that she lapses into baby talk. That said, I thought that this book was written far better in terms of dialogue and word usage than most of her other books. Although like another reviewer I wish she would not stereotype Gilley so badly as a gay person. His whining and cowardly approach to ghost hunting is getting a little old. I am looking forward to her next book and am hoping her dialogue will continue to improve and leave out overdone dialogue and cute stuff.

FIVE STARS

I love this series and thought this book was the best yet, although each has been good in its own way. Gilley may be a bit stereotypical but on the other hand, he's also a lot of fun (although less so in this book.) Also, if you watch a certain Ghost Busting tv show, there was a character (no longer on the show) who shared many of Gilley's cowardly traits, which made the show fun to watch, IMHO (as in not everyone is heroic.)

I appreciate the fact that MJ isn't a shrill or whiny female character, as sometimes happens, nor is she stuck on manhunting 24/7, which gets tiring to me. I also enjoy Heath as MJ's new partner. Mostly, I enjoy the storyline and the ghostbusting. This story centers around witches as the antagonists and Victoria Laurie has managed to make them seem real, relevant and menacing. I hope she writes many more of these stories, as I, for one, am very tired of traditional cosies that seem to be stamped out by the same author using the same plot.

I was really getting into this series, but this book might just be the last one I read.. The paranormal stuff was intriguing but MJ has in my opinion become a whiny diva, Gilly is just unbearable and I dont appreciate the animal abuse.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Ms. Laurie does a very good job of this latest installment of the Ghost Hunter Mysteries. MJ is a medium that has been employed by a famous cable channel to produce a real life show about ghouls and ghosties. MJ is quite the real deal and is accompanied by Heath Whitefeather, another highly talented medium. The cast of characters is rounded out by MJ's ever present partner Gilly (who ironically is scared to death of ghosts) and Gopher the producer.

The book starts out in Scotland at a location supposedly the most haunted in all of Scotland. Before they even begin to start filming, the ghosts attack and it becomes non-stop action to the end. The action is intense and all too real. The main ghost is a real witch that was murdered centuries before. She cursed the ones who killed her. Unfortunately, they discover that poor Gilly is a decedent of one of the murderers so the witch tries several times to kill Gilly....or does she?

A real murder does happen causing the gang to figure out who did it while at the same time trying to banish the evil spirits and save Gilly's life. If that isn't enough, a budding romance finds it's way into the story. I loved Gilly in this book. He is quirky and funny and balances out some of the more intense action. The ending makes you want to continue right away instead of having to wait for the next book.

In my opinion this is the best of the series so far. The action is tight and there are enough twists to keep you going. I highly recommend this book.

More About the Author

When I was in the 7th grade I took one of those career aptitude tests - you know, the ones where you answer a bunch of questions and the results indicate what profession you'd best be suited for? Yeah, well my test results indicated I was best suited for a career as a government spy.

A SPY!

I think I had the coolest results in the entire class. :)

Needless to say, I did not follow that particular career path - or maybe I just took the more indirect route. In my thirties a very good friend of mine who is now one of the world's most renowned psychic mediums suggested I stop ignoring my talents and dive right into the professional world of a psychic intuitive. On a lark, I did. And the results were pretty mind-blowing. Within just a few short weeks even I couldn't deny it - so much of what I predicted for total strangers was coming true and I really had to accept the "gift" so to speak.

Over the years I've built a really fabulous clientele and all those experiences have helped me create the Psychic Eye Mysteries, the Ghost Hunter Mysteries, and - for children - Oracles of Delphi Keep. And along that way I discovered my true love - writing.

Writing is one of those passions that gets me out of bed in the morning and invigorates my day. I love spinning a good yarn, and when I feel I actually get it right - wow! There is no better feeling.

In fact, the other day I was kicking back after a looooong day of writing, which ended in the completion of a manuscript and I remember just marveling in the fact that I actually get paid to daydream! I can't think of a more satisfying way to spend a life. And let's face it - it's a whole lot safer than working some covert operation. Although - I'm pretty sure the benefits might be better at the CIA. Still, I'll stick to my daydreams...at least for now... :)
