A Ghost Hunter Mystery, No 6
Jan 2012/ ISBN: 978-0-451-23550-3
by Laura Hinds
M.J. Holliday has always been able to see ghosts
and to talk to them. She's even capitalized on her gift by becoming
the star of the reality TV show, Ghoul Getters. She and her team
have faced evil entities many times, and have managed to emerge
triumphant. Before she and the crew can head off to their next assignment,
tragedy unfolds when her boyfriend, Heath, learns that his uncle
has been murdered.
M.J. had a warning about the news Heath was about
to get. She'd dreamed of her late mother and of her spirit guide,
Sam Whitefeather, and had been given the mandate to kill the demon
who threatens to destroy the entire Whitefeather tribe. Heath is
Sam's grandson, and M.J. knows she has to save him, too. She's also
been told that she is considered a member of the tribe and that
her own life is in grave jeopardy.
Ghoul Interrupted is set in New Mexico
and the author conveys the essence of the spirituality of the land
and of the Native Americans who live there. While the urgency of
the mission to destroy an evil demon is deadly serious, Victoria
Laurie also injects a great deal of humor in the tone of the story.
Gillie Gillespie, another member of M.J.s team, has been her friend
since childhood. Gillie is also able to interact with spirits. The
character of Gillie is rather over the top, and is a certified hypochondriac,
both of these characteristics serve to make Gillie one of my favorite
characters because he's so funny without intending to be, and I
think most of us know someone with similar traits.
If you've read
the previous books in this series and enjoyed them, you won't be
disappointed in the least with Ghoul Interrupted. If you
are new to this series, you'll get off to a good start reading this
novel, and it should whet your whistle to read the previous books.
Fans of Paige Shelton's If Fried Chicken Could Fly, or
authors Juliet Blackwell and Annette Blair should enjoy this book
