Review

All the characters, including the ghosts, are brilliantly original and the kind of people all of us would love to have as friends. In dialogues the author used the language and vernacular of the time period in which each of the ghosts lived, while they were coaching Phoebe, which added a very pleasant and unique touch to the eloquence of this book. I read "House on Plunkett Street" in one long sitting; not for the mundane reasons of suspense and action but just because I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. There are pearls of wisdom in this book which will appeal to every kind of reader, so do yourself a favor and go grab this gem of a book. It is more than deserving of its 5 stars! --(Ellen Fritz) Amazon.com

Lorena Bathey, author of Beatrice Munson, has done it again. She has created a warm, friendly, female loving book! She had me crying, laughing, and cheering. House on Plunkett Street is a very well written story. Just as she did in Beatrice Munson Lorena created larger than life characters that the reader wishes they had in their corner. --Melissa Ringsted, There for You Reviews

This was one of those books I started getting sad towards the end because I didn't want to stop reading it! One if the ghosts, Polly, is absolutely obsessed with color and by far one of my favorite literary characters to date. Shortly after finishing the book I found myself in a dressing room with a choice between a black and a purple top, and Polly popped in my head and I knew she would approve of the purple one way more. That definitely speaks for itself, thinking of a fictional character in your real life. Totally recommend to my fellow lady book addicts! --A-Rad, Amazon.com

"House on Plunkett Street" is not at all your usual, creepy, haunted house ghost story. In fact, it is a cheerful story full of friendly people and, yes, unusual ghosts.

When Phoebe, the main character, moves into an apartment in what used to be the house on Plunkett Street, she senses that it is a building filled with happiness and good memories. Three ghosts, on a mission to help her, make their appearance one by one, and Phoebe's life changes dramatically.

First there is Isolda - who was involved with the first suffragettes and who made the house available as a refuge for women who needed to start over - who convinces Phoebe that she needs to get rid of her boring boy friend and find her niche in life.
Next comes the jolly, perky Polly, formerly a singer and dancer in a twenties club, who sweeps Phoebe along to buy a new, colorful wardrobe and encourages her to crawl out of her dull existence and enjoy life.
Lastly there is Hazel the down to earth African American lady who teaches Phoebe about relationships.

When the owner's nephew causes Phoebe to spill coffee on herself and shortly thereafter she backs her car into his truck, one would think that the possibility of a romance between them is remote. But enter the three ghost ladies, who have other ideas, and you're in for a treat. This story has its fair share of sadness and drama. With ghosts from different time periods acting as life coaches to a modern woman, there is bound to be some hilarious moments.

All the characters, including the ghosts, are brilliantly original and the kind of people all of us would love to have as friends.

he description for this intrigued me and it seemed to have a feel good message. Plus, it has ghosts! Win Win for me.

Phoebe was a fascinating choice for our lead character. In all honesty, there is nothing remarkable about her in the beginning. She works at a job she doesn't love but because she has to do something. Her boyfriend of 2 years is really nothing special. I basically got the impression that she's doormat for those around her and she's happy to be that way (or doesn't care enough to change it). And then she moves. Who knew that the simple act of moving would have such a profound effect on her life.

Shortly after moving in, she meets the three ghosts who were sent her to teach her how leave her life and not coast through it. I appreciated the first ghost. She taught Phoebe that she should really be working at a job that is not only good at, but enjoys as well. And that it's ok to go out and get it. I had a little bit of harder time with the second ghost. I know that Phoebe lacked confidence in herself and it reflected in what she wore. But, I also think you are more than what you wear. The message seemed to be to get a man you have to wear the right clothes. Wasn't sure on that one really.

I really liked the third ghost, but kind of wondered if her message wasn't a little old fashioned. I'm sure we could all use a little relationship advice from time to time. But to step back and let him come to you or risk losing him? I just wasn't sure on that one.

I did like the overall story line and the general message, just not all the facts to get us there. That's ok though, I think plenty of others will like this!

Phoebe has lived the same boring life for a long time. She has run the same routine with no changes and no color. Her friend Meghan calls her to come check out this apartment. Phoebe loves this apartment in this house on Plunkett Street. Change is in the air and special helpers are on the way. Three ghosts come to visit Phoebe with advice on how to change her life. Will she take their advice or continue the same routine? I very much enjoyed this book. I found the book a page turner. I can't wait to read more from Lorena Bathey.

What would you do if you suddenly realize that your boyfriend is dull, your life is boring, your clothes are unappealing and your whole outlook in life needs a makeover? That is what Phoebe realizes after moving into her new apartment and meeting three ghosts that will show her how to expect more from her life, how to dress to impress and have fun, and how to love a man and stop over-thinking everything.

House on Plunkett Street is another delightful book by Lorena Bathey. It is an incredibly fun and heartwarming book for women and about women. "Every woman is beautiful. You are no exception", Isolda - one of the three ghosts - assures our heroine, as she starts her transformation that will ultimately lead her to rediscover herself as a woman worthy of the best that life has to offer. If you have ever taken a hard look at your love life and thought "blah", if you have ever looked into your closet and thought "blah", if you have ever looked at yourself in the mirror and thought "blah", if you have ever considered your job and thought "blah" - then you will love this book! Mixing supernatural with very real situations, hunky lawyers and loving friends, three ghosts determined to change Phoebe's life for the better, a wonderful landlord, and a host of trying situations, House on Plunkett Street is a must-read-book for women of all ages and in all stages!
