    4.5 Stars... I love how the author continually pulls past storylines into her current one; it allows her readers to have closure while still being intrigued as to how the past characters can catapult the current story's momentum forward... I really enjoyed this read with the mystery behind the character of Harvey and his ability to be both a victim of others' malice, but also a perpetrator of violence inflicted towards innocents... He was a cross between a mischievous teen and a malevolent ghost 4.5 Stars...

This series is simply fun and entertaining, and one I know I will continue to enjoy.:)

    What a wonderful Series! I was hooked on this series the first moment I began reading it. Danielle, the main character, starts from humble beginning as a divorcee whose husband died in a car accident with his mistress. Devastated, she sells her otherwise lucrative business to then move to an inherited home, Marlowe House, to overhaul it and make it a bed and breakfast. She and Lily, her bff from childhood, come to the old Victorian structure to find it in desperate need of updating. The structure What a wonderful Series! I was hooked on this series the first moment I began reading it. Danielle, the main character, starts from humble beginning as a divorcee whose husband died in a car accident with his mistress. Devastated, she sells her otherwise lucrative business to then move to an inherited home, Marlowe House, to overhaul it and make it a bed and breakfast. She and Lily, her bff from childhood, come to the old Victorian structure to find it in desperate need of updating. The structure is very sound and it has been regularly cleaned and maintained by Joan, who has been an employee of Dani’s great aunt, the one who had passed away, leaving the home to Dani. Money quickly becomes tight as the repairs and updates begin, things get more bizarre. Dani is a sensitive who can see and converse with ghosts who remain on earth after their deaths seeking to resolve unfinished business. Walt, the resident spirit from Marlowe House, eventually becomes a friend and looks out for Dani and Lily whenever possible. The resulting shenanigans that Dani gets into as a result of her psychic gift are very funny and completely enthralling. This particular book deals with the suspected haunting of Presley House, another old home in a dangerous state of disrepair. With the coming of Halloween, Harvey and Max appear on the scene searching for something, reappearing every Halloween season because what they are searching for has not been found since Harvey first began looking for it, 40 years ago. Dragged reluctantly by the police chief who is the only one in the local police to be aware of and believe in her psychic gift, to Presley house to find the suspected haunting spirit, Dani is thrust again in the middle of a tangled web of intrigue and lost lives. This particular novel goes to show Dani’s human vulnerability, despite her seemingly powerful gift and inherited wealth. Things are exasperated when the police chief goes on vacation to Hawaii and Dani is left to struggle through things, caught without sufficient police support and her own human frailty. All in all, a great read! This author really delivers.

    So far, every book has been better than the previous, which is unusual. Most of us look forward to a sequel, but don't expect it to be better than the first. This series seems to be the exception for me. In the previous year, Danielle Boatman has lost her husband, but found he was cheating on her. The pain of this betrayal has her selling the company they started and looking for a new start. It doesn't help that she can see ghosts who haven't moved on.

Most of us look forward to a sequel, but don't expect it to be better than the first. This series seems to be the exception for me. In the previous year, Danielle Boatman has lost her husband, but found he was cheating on her. The pain of this betrayal has her selling the company they started and looking for a new start. It doesn't help that she can see ghosts who haven't moved on. However, she finds her new start in an unexpected inheritance from a Great Aunt by marriage, The Marlowe House. But Marlowe house comes with secrets and the town, a wide variety of characters. The main character is Walt Marlow, a Ghost, excuse me, a spirit (Walt does not like the term ghost) who died in his own attic at the age of 25. He has decided he doesn't want to "move on" to the next part of his journey. There's a touch of romance in the air, but where can a Spirit and a live woman's relationship go? Danielle has a new neighbor, Heather. There is a black cat hanging around. It is almost Halloween and the entire town is talking about the haunted house! But not Danielle's. Walt is still safe but the other haunted house is NOT! Once a year, for the month of October, the house is haunted by a violent ghost who is hunting for something. But what could he want so badly? Danielle must try and find out, thereby helping the ghost, move on. But how will this violent ghost respond? Has Danielle met her match? Walt is worried because he can't leave the house and the black cat tells him the ghost is more dangerous than anyone realizes.

    Halloween is a time known for ghosts to appear, except Danielle Boatman has that everyday with the ghost of Walt Marlow haunting her B&B. But there’s another ghost in town not too far away and he only shows up in October. Not only does he only show up for one month out of the year, this ghost, Harvey, is desperately searching for something in the old abandoned house he haunts every year.

But there’s another ghost in town not too far away and he only shows up in October. Not only does he only show up for one month out of the year, this ghost, Harvey, is desperately searching for something in the old abandoned house he haunts every year. With Danielle being one of the only people to see him, Harvey decides she has to help him with finding the object he seeks. I like that this still ties in with the previous books. There’s a slight connection between Walt and the house Harvey haunts. It’s not a very big connection but I like how everything connects a little bit at least. This series is right up my alley with my desire for a story to go on and on (I have a hard time letting stories go). I really do love how each book takes place immediately or pretty close to the end of the previous book. However, I didn’t like this book as much as the others in the series so far. This is less murder mystery and just mystery. There’s still some murder mystery with Harvey being murdered, but it’s not a big plot point like in the other books. It’s briefly mentioned and then we move on, and I really like murder mysteries which is why I started this series. I kinda feel like this should be more of .5 in the series instead of a whole book like a little side story (so like #4.5 in the series). This story felt like more filler than moving the plot along. I would recommend reading this if you’ve read the previous books and want to continue. There’s still the ghosts which is a major plot point, but just don’t be expecting murder mystery with this one.

Her home, Marlow House, has its own resident ghost and Walt, the ghost, is very protective of her. In this book there is another house nearby, one that is vacant and only haunted each year on Halloween. Something terrible happened there and a spirit is trying to find peace, but he is a mischievous ghost that sometimes borders on the side of malicious. As always, Danielle is trying to help a spirit move on but the local police department, who doesn't know her gift, suspects that she is part of the crime. I'm already reading book #6!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This book was incredibly hard to follow at first, until I found out that Max wasn’t a person but a cat, then things started to fall into place. I am so glad that I kept reading this series. After the first two books, I almost gave up. This has been the highlight of the series so far for me. I read the last 1/3 of the book in one night because I couldn’t put it down. While I never felt that Danielle was in any real danger, the suspense of how she would get out of Presley House kept me so riveted This book was incredibly hard to follow at first, until I found out that Max wasn’t a person but a cat, then things started to fall into place.

    Cute story, nothing deep about it. I listened to the audiobook, although I don't think I would have finished an ebook or paperback. I hate to say this, but I thought Max was a dog until he "came out" at Marlow House. The author has an annoying habit of describing every movement made by a character in a scene. Do I care if he took a sip of coffee before answering a question from another character?! Cute story, nothing deep about it.

    Another ghostly mystery. Another ghostly mystery. I found this book more confusing than her others. The characters weren't very clear for quite a few chapters adding to uncertainty as who was who and what was what. Half way threw it was easier to understand and follow the story line.

    Outstanding Read Hi I am starting book #8, there just is not any words to tell anyone about these books except “AWESOME”. Once you start reading one you are hooked. Have already got my niece and my granddaughter hooked on them. I keep hoping Walt will find his way to my house. (Smile)

    Great Ghost Story! This book has the right blend of mystery, supernatural, and normalcy. What I especially appreciated was the differences between the three main policemen who were on the case. Also, i love the way the animals interact with Walt. I will gladly raise my 4 stars to 5 when the careless errors are corrected. Thank you for a satisfying read!

    Fascinating Series I simply cannot stop reading these books. One of the things I love about each book is that there are multiple plot lines that seamlessly merge into one fantastic book. And even more interesting characters are introduced, namely, Heather, a new neighbor of Dani and Lily. Hope to see more of her.

    Hauntingly good! This is a great story. Sometimes I get frustrated with Dani's poor decisions but after all that's what keeps me coming back to read the stories. The situations that Dani gets herself into keeps you sitting on the edge of your seat. Great story that branches out in many directions. Enjoy 😀 Hauntingly good! This is a great story.

    In danger again Dani just can't stop trying to solve cases and help ghost move on. She finds herself in a real bind this time. Joe is a short sides jerk of a cop. He never really wants to help Dani and definitely doesn't have faith in her. Poor Lily is so worried. In danger again Dani just can't stop trying to solve cases and help ghost move on.
