My Kind of Mystery Reading Challenge 2017 February - January 2017-8



Ghouls, Ghouls, Ghouls: 04/10/15

cover artGhouls, Ghouls, Ghouls by Victoria Laurie is the fifth of the Ghost Hunter Mystery series. After the disappointing turn of events in Ghouls Gone Wild, we're treated to a fast paced, emotional, and well thought out mystery.

Holliday and her ghost hunting crew are still in Scotland. The producer of their new television show, Ghoul Getters, wants them to investigate the castle keep on the nearby loch, said to hold both an impressive treasure and a blood thirsty demon.

None of the local villagers will go near the place, including the local police. So when some of MJ's crew go missing, she has to her best to solve the mystery with limited resources. To complicate things, the keep's bridge is only accessible when the loch's water level is low enough and the wind is calm. Both are rare events.

The book was a page turner, just the right balance between mystery and horror. The humor was toned down and with Gillie among the missing, MJ was allowed to focus. I am planning to read the sixth book, Ghoul Interrupted soon.
