The spirits who are haunting Maplemead Castle are a trio of circus performers who comprised a love triangle when they were alive. Bewitching trapeze artist, Britannia, her besotted Italian partner, and her ringmaster husband are doomed to repeat the events of the night when they all perished over and over again, and the American couple who just bought Maplemead wants the troublesome ghosts gone so that they can rent the castle out to a film crew. They call in Melody "I See Dead People" Bittersweet and her team of ghostbusters as well as Melody's ex, fame-hungry TV personality Leo Dark, and his twin sidekicks. To say that Melody is not thrilled to have to share the job with Leo is an understatement, and she's further peeved when Fletcher Gunn, the reporter who's intent on proving she and Leo are both frauds, is assigned the story.
I think one of the things I enjoyed most about this book was how the author peeled off more layers of the Leo and Fletch characters and gave the reader greater insight into what makes them tick. At various times throughout the story, they're emotionally vulnerable and we see that beneath their quips and bravado they have hearts. I like that both men are flawed and multi-dimensional; sometimes they're jerks and make Melody's life miserable and other times they step in and do the right thing. Although Melody seemed to finally get closure on her breakup with Leo and she took a few steps forward with Fletch, the author still left the door open for Melody/Leo and presented a pretty compelling reason as to why Melody/Fletch will never work. So, there's no clear romantic end game for Melody, which is fun for me as a reader. I go back and forth rooting for both guys.
These books are such a wonderful blend of humor, pathos, thrills, and chills, and I love that the author always surprises me. I keep thinking about Melody and her adventures long after I've finished the stories and I can't wait to see what happens next in the series!
