REVIEW

"Quick entertaining read!"

After the success of the TV show, Peter Gophner—Gopher— managed to talk Bravo into filming on location in a show called Ghoul Getters. Even though her partner Gilley Gillespie is all gung ho for the idea, M.J. isn't about to rush into anything. After all, if she does agree, M.J. will be gone for ten weeks. Not only will she have to leave her African Gray parrot Doc behind, but Dr. Delicious as well. At least that's what Doc calls her boyfriend, Dr. Steven Sable. And Steven is a partner in their business. Turns out Heath Whitefeather—he's the medium M.J. met during the TV show—is all for the idea. Considering the money Gopher is offering them and the fact M.J. can nix any location, she reluctantly agrees. Just before they're due to leave, Gopher finds a new location and sends Gilley a file. Turns out there's a local ghost guide and he takes a pug puppy down a supposedly haunted street and when M.J. sees how terrified the puppy is, she explodes. And so Queen's Close, Scotland becomes the first stop for Ghoul Getters.

When they arrive in Queen's Close and are all settled in and M.J. and Heath meet with the local ghost guide, he leads them down the same street and both mediums have a really bad reaction. Not that the man is in any way repentant, just the opposite in fact. Well, that didn't go well at all. At least Kim, the assistant, manages to find the puppy and M.J. immediately falls in love with it and decides to adopt little Wendell. They have enough people so Wendell won't be alone. Kim also manages to find warm clothing for them and a great crystal shop. When M.J. and Heath finally go down to the caverns, they find a dead man and all kinds of grounded spirits down there. After all, these caverns are where they used to put people when they caught the plague. However, there's also a witch who was put to death by the villagers and has vowed revenge against the families who killed her. This witch's spirit shows up every hundred years and kills a member of each family involved in the death of her and her sisters.

After a really rocky start, M.J. and Heath realize they're going to need help on this bust and it comes in the form of Heath's deceased grandfather. Not to mention, Gilley's family was one of those responsible for the witch's death and he has become her next target.

Will M.J. and Heath be able to keep Gilley safe? Exactly why are these spirits so strong? Why did the witch come back thirty-years early and who called her?

GHOULS GONE WILD A GHOST HUNTER MYSTERY: BOOK 4 is a fast- paced thrilling story. Victoria Laurie obviously knows what's she talking about when it comes to ghost busting. Have to admit, before I read this story, I went out and bought the first three stories in the series and absolutely loved them! So I was really looking forward to this one and Victoria Laurie didn't disappoint. With each one of these stories, it seems M.J. goes up against a stronger spirit. With her boyfriend in the States, M.J. finds herself attracted to Heath—in a big way—and he's already made his feelings clear. Victoria Laurie's writing style pulled me right into the story and kept my attention until the end, when I found myself hoping for more. All I can say is I've added another auto-buy author to my ever growing list. I plan on getting her PSYCHIC EYE series soon and can't wait for the next book in this one. Great story!
