You may know how the story will progress (maybe not always); but you also know you will enjoy the story. Rarely are you disappointed. Victoria Laurie is one of my comfort reads. I stumbled upon her last year, and quickly had to devour all the books in print I could get my hands on. This was the series I stumbled upon first, so I was excited to get this latest edition in the series. First let me say I did enjoy and liked this book very much. However, I was surprised to find myself feeling somewhat disappointed with the story progression in the first third or so of the book. M.J. Holliday, her SO, Heath and her BF, Gilly Gillespie are facing one of their toughest challenges – a demon that is targeting and trying to destroy the Whitefeather tribe, Heath’s family. Obviously, Heath is distracted and dealing with grief, as early on, his favorite aunt and uncle have already been killed by the demon threat. What I found somewhat frustrating and annoying is that M.J. and Gilly seem to be slow in responding to the threat and starting an investigation into the history of the clan and the demon that may be responsible for the current havoc. They seem curiously passive, initially. Admittedly, they are hampered by tribal culture, traditions and customs. Still, M.J. is usually a more proactive heroine. M.J. does become more proactive and Gilly also is more heroic than he normally seems to be. Gilly whines, complains and cowers, but ultimately you can count on him to back up M.J. in the end. In this story, there seems to be less cowering and more immediate stepping up and bravery. The story does pick up quickly and results with an exciting climax. Overall, this was not a disappointment and a very good read.

    This was definitely my least favorite one in the series. It wasn't awful, but it was definitely missing some of the spark that the other ones had. I loved seeing Doc again but Teeko stopping by just seemed unnecessary, like the author realized she hadn't made an appearance in three or so books and threw her on the scene.

I also like Heath a lot, but this book had some weird out-of-character moments for him. Gilley was toned down in this book, though, thank goodness! The mystery on this one was a bit dull, and this notion that "this is the worst thing we've ever fought!" will eventually hit a wall. How many of these ferocious demons are left before they get one that is literally impossible to destroy? I fear the author's decision to make the ghost in each book bigger and badder will actually cause the series to die quicker. As it is, it's already getting a bit unrealistic that M.J. manages to save the day each time even though the ghost is "unstoppable". I'm also getting annoyed that she solves the mysteries but doesn't fill us, the reader, in. All of a sudden she will just blurt out the solution based on clues we never knew and we're left wondering where the hell it came from. I know it seems like I just ripped this book apart but the truth is, even this mediocre installment was good. I am honestly enjoying this series a lot, but the minor annoyances I've had throughout were all together in this one and hard to ignore. I'm so glad the next book is due out next month, since I just sped through this whole series and don't want to wait long for another M.J. adventure!

There is a possible basis for a show in Dunkird, but they have to put aside these plans and head to New Mexico to deal with the death of Heath's Uncle Milton. M.J.'s spirit guide Sam Whitefeather (who happens to be Heath's grandfather) appears in a dream to warn her of this just before Heath is notified by his cousin. Sam informs M.J. that Milton has been unable to cross over because of the traumatic nature of his death, which was caused by a demon whose mission is to destroy the Whitefeather clan. M.J.'s job is to locate the person possessed by the demon and kill him or her. Although M.J. is not thrilled about the idea of killing someone, she's prepared to do it if it's the only way to dispose of the demon. While Gopher and the rest of the Ghost Hunter crew return to L.A. to deal with paperwork, M.J., Heath and Gilley fly to Santa Fe to take care of the evil spirit. M.J. and her crew fight ghost and demons the same way one would fight any battle, by being mentally prepared and having the proper tools and weapons (which include custom magnetized spikes and "grenades"). Laurie's matter-of-fact narration of these astonishing events is what keeps this series from edging into the horror novel category. At the end of the book is a preview of the next Ghost Hunter novel What A Ghoul Wants, due in January 2013.

This book had humor, excellent storytelling of Native American style, adventure, and a respect throughout of Tribal belief systems and customs. To my delight it featured the Zuni and they are a gracious and talented people that I personally enjoyed meeting and studying their pots and jewelry. I adored this book and it was a true page-tuner for me.

    Really don't like where the characters have gone since the series started. Gilly started off neurotic but kind of sweet and cute but has just turned into an annoying character and a shadow of what he started off as in the first book. The author just seems to enjoy adding a new neurosis for each book. If he was honestly as terrified of everything in the books I would expect him to be a live at home agoraphobic.

I also really dislike her new boyfriend in the series, he just comes across as a jerk and I really don't see what she or I should see in him. His character makes me want to throw the book at the wall.

    This book was utterly amazing!! I loved it from start to finish. The characters were solid. They were explained early on. I loved the relationship between MJ and Gilly! Their bond was great. As a paranormal investigator myself it was very intriguing. That and the Native American folk lore involved, and the plot was superb. It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole book! Can't wait to read more of her's. This book was utterly amazing!! I loved it from start to finish. The characters were solid. They were explained early on.

In "Ghoul Interrupted" MJ Holliday, her fellow medium and boyfriend Heath Whitefeather and her best friend Gilley Gillespie are forced to abandon filming of their new TV show "Ghoul Getters" in order to go to Heath's home in New Mexico for a family funeral. Suspicious circumstances seem to surround the death and MJ and the gang begin an investigation, spurred on by MJ's spirit guide, Sam Whitefeather. It appears an ancient demon has arisen with murder on its mind and it's up to MJ, Heath and Gilley to put the evil thing to rest before anyone else gets hurt. I really enjoyed the southwestern scenery of this book, along with all of the Native American legends. It was a pleasant diversion from past books that were set in Europe. Because the reunion of Heath's family takes place under such emotionally charged circumstances, there's more intimacy between the characters, more sharing of their pasts and their emotional connections to each other. There are lots of sweet scenes between MJ and Gilley, revealing more about their friendship. As always, the book was also hi-larious! Gilley takes a prominent role in the funniest scenes and creates a catch phrase that I've already found myself using (hint: it involves his name). Last, but definitely not least, this is absolutely the scariest Ghost Hunter book so far!! It was so satisfying to be unnerved by the villainous spirit and to see MJ and her crew courageously rise to the challenge of taking it down. Ms. Laurie gives us another chance to cheer for our team, and for that I say, "Cheers, Victoria!! Now, on to the next!"

    Finally, Victoria Laurie has broken away from the Scooby-Do feel of the previous books in the Ghost Hunters Mystery series. I was beginning to get a little worried on the future of these books with the same path being taken book after book.

Gilley will always be the neurotic best friend of M.J. and he will always be able to eat his way through the left side of the menu, but I think this little buttercup is starting to man-up. After a frantic call M.J., Heath and Gilley hightail it to New Mexico to investigate the death of Heath’s uncle on the Zanto Pueblo. The Whitefeather’s are a difficult bunch, but with the spirit of Sam, Heath’s deceased grandfather to guide them, the trio takes on an ancient evil life-force that has unleashed it hatred on the descendants of the original Whitefeather. It is now up to M.J. and her team to put this malevolent Jeannie back into its bottle and prevent any more deaths. I am not sure if there is any factual history to the Native American tale that was told in these pages, but I found the storyline fascinating. Ms Laurie drew me right into the legend of great white hawk and the great black hawk and that set the overall feel for the book. Is the book one hundred percent plausible? Of course not, but it is not meant to be. This is a cozy mystery with a bit of an edge and a can-can dancing parrot. With this story, you will be entertained and drawn in a bit deeper than the previous books. This time I can say that I look forward to the next book in the series.

    Hmm...this is just slightly under a full four stars for me, only because the first half of the book wasn’t as good as previous books in the series. The second half made up for that though.

I’m still going to continue with the series because I do like the characters. Yes, even neurotic Gilly 😊

    Every October, for Halloween, I watch spooky movies and read books about ghost hunters. This series, Victoria Laurie’s Ghost Hunter Mysterys, turned out to be a needed break from some evil characters that haunted the books of James Lee Burke and John Connolly that I had read recently. Laurie probably meant the book to be more serious but it kept reminding me of the Ghostbuster movies- she even used the word ‘ectoplasm’, which is what slimed Dan Aykroyd in those movies.

I loved just about everything in this book from the characters, main and supporting, to the plot, the setting, and the demon, of course. I really like that we got to know more about Heath, as well. Despite being a main character since the fourth book, we haven't been given much background information, so that was a nice touch. Again, the only thing that bothered me about this book, and the series as a whole, is how time passes. It seems odd that Heath and M.J. have known each other for a year and a half, since as far as I know the TV show Ghoul Getters was created at the end Ghouls Just Haunt To Have Fun and they fly to Scotland at the beginning of Ghouls Gone Wild I don't know if a year or something passed in-between there or what, because at the end of the fourth one, Steven Sable returns to break up with M.J., then in Ghouls Ghouls Ghouls she states that the two of them had broken up recently. At the beginning of this book they jet off to New Mexico, even though they are about to leave Ireland for wherever their next shoot is. I figure their cases only last a month or less soooo... definitely a year and a half. Later Days.

    This case hits too close to home when a violent demon tries to take out Heath's entire bloodline - one member at a time. M.J. and Gilley get in lots of trouble out on the reservation while Heath does his best to keep his family from the demon. The suspense/terror quotient was rather high in this one with the crazy, scary dragon/demon thing. Yikes. M.J., Gilley and Heath were definitely out-classed in this one. Thoroughly enjoyable and I liked finally learning some of Heath's background. This case hits too close to home when a violent demon tries to take out Heath's entire bloodline - one member at a time.

    I loved that in this book we get to know a lot more about Heath. He has been my favorite character since he entered the series in book three.

They believe someone broke the urn that held the demon. M.J., Heath, and Gilley then decide to investigate Heath's family and the reservation to find out who broke the urn. The demon is now controlling that person and the demon wants revenge on every member of the Whitefeather family. This series always has some good humor and romance. I also kept trying to figure out the "who done it" and could never figure out who broke the urn. I thought I knew but then there was twist and it was someone else. "Fine, okay? I'll come! Just stop with all this pressure!" "Thanks, Gil." "Whatever," he grumbled. "If we get caught, I'm going to say you kidnapped me." "Playing?" he repeated drowsily, but a smile tugged at his lips. "Yep. Your body is like an amusement park for my fingers." Heath chuckled and the sound was low and throaty. "Well," he said, moving his own hand to rest on the top of my head. "You're in luck, pretty lady, because you have to be this height to ride my merry-go-round." "Here's my ticket," I said, kissing him.

The book starts with M.J. having a conversation with her spirit guide, Heath's grandfather, Sam about the demon that is hunting and killing his family. He tells M. J. that the only way to get rid of the demon is to kill the person controlling it. After family members start dying, M. J. questions if the cause of death was natural-really? Then she questions if the demon killed the person who raised it. She also tells everyone that she has no idea how to get rid of the demon. What really gets me is around page 150 she has another conversation with Sam where she asks him if he has heard about the demon. Sam then tells her that she has to research how to get rid of it. Where is Laurie's editor? Not only are their errors in plot, but that are also a ton of grammatical and typographical errors. Argh, but i don't want to waste my money, so i will be finishing it. However, I will not be picking up the next in the series unless the second half of this book is absolutely amazing. Edit: It gets better in the second half, but still not enough for me to pick up the next book in the series.

Of course, knowing Gilly *whispering ~ Gilly Gilleshpie* as the ghost magnet that he is (see what I did there? LOL) the Gillster will probably attract a demon in disguise or something equally scary! *eek!!* So now I wait...(none too patiently, mind you)for the next installment. Oh, and I'm not picky - it can be an Abby book or an M.J. book - I'm OK with either one...hint hint!

    He's just a character, so I don't feel bad for saying this: Gilley needs to die. Or at least quit whining so much.

I couldn't have somebody like him in my life, not for long, and I really, really hope the next book does what it hinted at, and puts him in mortal peril. Heath is okay, M.J. could be worse (she could also be way better), the ghosts could be less "omg worse danger ever", and the story better overall, but Gilley seriously ruins the whole series.

    Well I am enjoying the stories and I like the pacing of clues and overall pacing. Oddly, I am not really that fond of the two main characters. I often find them to be rude and actually mean to each other as well as to outsiders, but unless they really put me off I will still read the series.

Any book that honestly presents clues to follow and I can't figure out the whole thing before finishing chapter 3, is fun to read. There is one thing that really bugs me though. By book 6 one would think the characters would have figured out they can drill a hole through the spike, before being magnetized, and slip in an elastic loop or velcro or something that will help them hold onto the damn things instead of dropping them all the time! An elastic or velcro can go around upper arms or around waists or even a rope can be tied around waists. (Not to be used around necks as could be used to strangle the wearer). They could sew thin cotton, deep pockets to their shirts and drop the exposed spike in there. Put them in the pockets cap down and make taking the holder off easy. Then you just remove the tube and drop it while the exposed spike and cap stays in the pocket. There has got to be some way to better hang onto them but the characters have not even explored the possibility. Not rocket science, but really paints them as absent minded bunglers, not in a funny way. What about the times they don't even take them along because they are just going to take a quick look around. C'mon these are their protection and everyday tools of their trade. Really? Maybe their sixth sense dulls or relplaced their common sense.

    Another great addition to the series! This time around M.J., Heath, her boyfriend, and Gilley, her best friend, head to New Mexico after Heath gets news that his uncle has died. It isn't long before they come to find out that a nasty demon from years before is responsible for it. This time around there aren't as many spooks for them to bust as the demon this time around is equivalent to about 10-20 (or more) regular spooks.

This time around M.J., Heath, her boyfriend, and Gilley, her best friend, head to New Mexico after Heath gets news that his uncle has died.

This time around there aren't as many spooks for them to bust as the demon this time around is equivalent to about 10-20 (or more) regular spooks. It was great getting more of Heath's backstory flushed out and seeing how his family has drama just like all of our own families. The new characters introduced are very welcome to the story and add a lot to the overall family vibe, though it is tense at times given the circumstances. There are some great action sequences, particularly in Chapter 9 & 15, that make you wonder just how the characters might get out alive!! The main trio are all a bunch of badasses. M.J. is one of a kind, Gilley is finding his courage and Heath is doing all that he can to protect his friends even in a time of hardship. Together they make an incredible team and the way they work together to solve mystery after mystery makes for incredibly fun reads! Thank you, Victoria Laurie, for another great read!

I hate her calling Heath her sweetie and sweetheart, just doesn't seem to fit. Maybe it's because I don't have a clear mental image of her. Although I do semi picture her like "baby" from dirty dancing and I'm not sure why. Lol I also didn't care for her lack of respect when it came to Tribal law. Maybe it was just me, but she seemed to think she was above it and it bothered me a lot.

I did not buy the final fight scene and her battle cry... idk just didn't seem right. The ending seemed rushed... she came to the conclusion on her own and next chapter was the set up and the capture. Eh.

    I’m giving this one 3.5 Stars. Overall, this book was enjoyable. It just wasn’t her best. It took me about 50%-60% of the way in to really get hooked. Note: There were moments when I felt MJ was fat shaming Gilley and I didn’t approve. This is the second book that I found these brief but hurtful comments used as “jokes.” The overall “vibe” of this book was very different. It was more focused on Heath and his family. So it was less mysterious than I would have liked. Also, I had one hunch about th I’m giving this one 3.5 Stars. Overall, this book was enjoyable. It just wasn’t her best.

    It was nice that this story was different than what this series has been producing. There were also parts that felt thrown in for no reason applicable to the story. It felt like the characters were brought in to keep them relevant to the series. At times things took place that made little sense as well. I did enjoy the story but not as much as I have thus far in this series.

    Different from the other Ghost Hunter mysteries, but it's also kind of refreshing to see them in a different setting. It's like a breather between the more serious mysteries, even if it does deal with a murder.

    3.75 stars rounded up I liked this better than previous books because it got "closer to home". The victims of the demons attack this time were none other than Heath's family members. So I learned more about Heath and his family, including being introduced to his mother. 3.75 stars rounded up I liked this better than previous books because it got "closer to home".

    This was hard to get through for me. The first 5-6 hours was just a yawn fest.

    Very good. I'm still amazed that Laurie can up the danger factor with every book. Mild-to-moderate swearing and innuendo Very good. I'm still amazed that Laurie can up the danger factor with every book. Mild-to-moderate swearing and innuendo
