How to Survive a Killer Seance 11/08/11
I've lived in the Bay Area now for 12 years. The one place I want to go and haven't yet is The Winchester Mystery House. It is the setting for the third of the Party Planner books, How to Survive a Killer Seance by Penny Warner.
Presley Parker's latest client is the CEO of a tech company with a new 4D technology, something like a fully realized hologram. To launch the new product, he wants Presley to put on a seance where Sarah Winchester will materialize (and thus show off the new technology). Of course someone ends up dead and Presley's the center of attention again.
Meanwhile back at Treasure Island, her offices are being condemned and she has to find a new place to work. She's also being haunted by spirits of her own. Maybe the murderer is trying to scare her off?!
I was having so much fun with the setting and Presley's trouble on Treasure Island that I was too preoccupied to guess the identity of the murderer. That was a big improvement over How to Crash a Killer Bash. This series of books is a perfect mix of Bay Area locations and party planning mayhem.
I read this books for fun. They are my curl up with a hot cup of cocoa books.
The fourth book is How to Party with a Killer Vampire (review coming).

It is. It's the third book in the series but they all stand alone just fine.

Looks like a fun book. As it gets colder here (15 degrees tonight) I'm ready for a curl up with a hot cup of cocoa type of book.

It's the third book in the series but each book is a pretty quick read. Good for an afternoon reading and drinking cocoa.
