By Crochet Ghoul VINE VOICE on July 30, 2007
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I was really excited to read this book because I love the Psychic Eye Mysteries Victoria Laurie also writes. I'm not a picky reader, but I'm sorry, this didn't quite do it for me and I ended up very disappointed.

I was hoping they'd be different from the P. E. Mysteries, but still have similar elements of style. Even though I like romance, this book was supposed to be a mystery, hence A Ghost Hunter Mystery on the cover, but the mystery is thrown in around the rather awkwardly written romance between M. J. and Steven. I did think the first chapter was good because I thought M. J. would be different than Abby and more antisocial and a bit cranky (at least that's what I got from the first chapter), but then she ended up giggling throughout the whole book (seriously). What I like about the P. E. Mysteries are that they are fresh, fun, well written, and the characters are (for the most part) believable. Not to mention, I got extremely tired of reading Steven's choppy English ('what do you say...?', 'Yes, that too', etc.), which made the dialogue even choppier and flatter than it already was, not to mention irritating as all get out. I don't know why V. L. couldn't have made him more fluent in English, especially since he was so well educated, it would only have been a small tweak in the plot. But I've noticed Ms. Laurie has a bit of a redundancy problem in her books, even if I do love Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye, which has the 'liar, liar, pants on fire' repetition, where when someone lies, Abby's 'inborn lie detector' goes off with that chant.

Overall, the dialogue was choppy, the plot and mystery were subpar, the characters were clichés and unbelievable (Doc was a nice addition though), and the whole book badly needed editing.

I love Victoria Laurie's Psychic Eye series, I've enjoyed each Abby Cooper book and highly recommend to readers of Romance and/or Mystery. So when I saw "What's A Ghoul to Do?", a new series, I was eager to read more by this author. I was sadly disappointed, and found it very annoying! Victoria Laurie is a good enough writer that I was able to force myself to finish reading the book, just so I could find out what happened, but I won't bother reading the next one. I don't want to spoil it for anyone who does chose to read it but the hero has a really really annoying habit that might be charming in real life but has a serious cringe factor on paper. And the torture never ends, it is throughout the book! (WARNING -- SPOILER FOLLOWS)
It is the equivalent of having a character mispronounce words, then another character constantly correcting the mispronounciation!! Oh right, what is annoying in real life becomes excruciating on paper! And at the end, we find this annoying guy will return in the second book. Lets hope he learns to saw the english, I mean, speak english, before then. Aaagh!

I read this book quickly, after putting it down for a while and picking it back up. I found the relationship with Dr. Sable aggravating as I didn't really get the attraction and he came off as somewhat slimy. The mystery portion of the book was good as far as the twist at the end goes...but I don't think I would read another in this series.

Victoria Laurie's hit new series involves a P.I. Except this time instead of a pyschic we have M.J. who can talk to ghosts and help them move on. She can see them as well, but they are not always visible because it takes a lot of energy from the ghost to make themselves visible, so it doesn't happen often.

M.J. and her partner Gilley, a smirky and funny gay guy, work together to help their clients with their ghostly problems. Then a hunky doctor, both in M.J.'s and Gilley's opinion, comes to them and asks for their services in ridding his house of his grandfather's ghost but he also wants to know what happened to him, because he suspects murder. M.J. does not normally allow the cilents to come along because they just get in the way and make things complicated for her. So after arguing she finally complies and allows the doctor to come along.

The mystery itself was enticing as well. There are always so many leads as to who the murderer is and you start to make your guesses only to be blown away by the outcome!! I love it when that happens! The novel ends and sets up a small surprise for M.J., which I will not reveal! It all leads up to the next installment of the series, which I am dying to read!

The mystery has an edge, there are so many winding secrets that all get answered and the suspense that the book has with its mystery and the fact that there's ghosts involved makes this a helluva good read. I read it all in one freaking day with no real intention of doing so. So I highly recommend this book to any mystery lovers obivously, but to any sci-fi/fantasy lovers. Also there is only a small spark of romance involved, so there is no heavy breathing in this book which also makes it good. This is seriously a good book and promises to be a helluva good series.

As a fan of the Abby Cooper series, I anticipated this new series - A Ghost Hunter Mystery - and I was not disappointed - this is another delightful series!! M.J. and her partner, Gilley are ghostbusters. Dr. Steven Sable, hires them to find out what happened to his grandfather. As Ms. Laurie has done with the Abby Cooper books, she shows us the role of a psychic - the responsibilities, the integrity, the dedication.
To help a soul who has lost their way, to help them 'cross over' needs not only the ability to 'see' the soul, but be able to help them find their way. Not just all the gadgets that a ghostbuster needs to find spiritual activity. Ms. Laurie masterfully educates us what it takes to do this line of work, as well as entertain us with wonderful plot and characters. Laurie also writes a fine story with action, mystery, romance, and mixing the paranormal with the everyday makes the reader right there in the action. Laurie's writing, the word play between the characters is crisp and wonderful.
I am happy that this new series is great and look forward to more -
Can tell you that Ms. Laurie is gifted in her own right and gives her insight into her work.
You will enjoy this and all Victoria Laurie's works.
