M.J., her partner Gilley, and their client, the wealthy, de-lish Dr. Steven Sable, are at his family's lodge, where his grandfather allegedly jumped to his death from the roof-although Sable says it was foul play. But the patriarch's isn't the only ghost around.
The place is lousy with souls, all with something to get off their ghoulish chests. Now M.J. will have to to quell the clamor-and listen for a voice with the answers...
A fun paranormal mystery with plenty of laughs and larger than life characters!
M.J. is smart, snarky, independent and easy to connect with. I love her sidekick African Grey parrot Doc and finding out he's named after the famous gunslinger Doc Holliday, who M.J. is happens to be related to...it was a cute little tidbit that adds to Doc's charm and his inappropriate comments. Gilley is a great supporting character who has some of the book's best one-liners as M.J.'s gay BFF. The romantic interest, Steven, starts off as charming and sexy but his constant use of "How do you say?" and many other English faux pas made me lose interest right away...someone get Dr. Delicious a tutor STAT! That being said, I did enjoyed the flirty banter between Steven and M.J. and think these two might have a chance once he acclimates.
This is the perfect weekend read. What's a Ghoul to Do? is an entertaining and easy read with a sprinkle of the paranormal. The story is easy to follow and keeps you turning the pages with Ms. Laurie's laid-back writing style. There's an element of mystery, a little ghost-busting and a bit of creepiness to the story, but the characters are the book's real showcase. If you're in need of a light and fluffy distraction from your usual reading, look no further.
