MJ Holliday is a real-life Medium,
much like the famous Long Island Medium of TLC TV fame. MJ
even has her own cable TV show that shares the adventures
of MJ and her crew and their ghost-hunting activities around
This adventure finds MJ and cohorts in Wales, at a castle
haunted by the Grim Widow ghost. The Grim Widow, rumored to
be responsible for drowning guests in Kidwella Castle’s
moat, spreads fear to all who visit. There are two more victims
even as MJ and the crew prepare to start filming.
Will MJ be able to handle the Grim Widow and a living person
with a murderous bent as well?
Author Victoria Laurie is quite talented at constructing
paranormal mysteries. I like the characters and the unusual
settings. However, in my opinion, with each book in this series,
the characters and situations become more and more out there.
Real “woo-woo” stuff, that often comes across
as unintentionally hilarious.
While this book is fine for all ages, as is the whole series,
I think it is best suited to teens and young adults who enjoy
their stories when they are a bit over the top. I would not
recommend it as bedtime reading though, especially if you
are prone to nightmares.
