I was at Barnes & Noble one day to just hang out and read some books to keep me busy during my day off of school. I saw this very interesting blue book that read Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye as the title and so I pulled it out of the bookcase and started reading the back cover with the description of the book. I thought that it was worth giving it a try and I saw that there was a second book right next to the one I pulled out. That was the day that I was hooked on the Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye Mystery Series and Victoria Laurie’s devoted reader. When I found out that Victoria Laurie was writing another series called M.J. Holliday Ghost Hunter Mysteries series I knew that I had to buy the books especially since M. J. Holliday was mentioned in the 3rd book of the Abby Cooper Series. There are 2 books out so far in this series but there is a 3rd book to be coming out in May of 2009 called Ghouls Just Haunt To Have Fun!

M.J. Holliday was mentioned in the third book of the Abby Cooper series and I thought she was such an interesting character that I was so glad when Laurie announced that M.J. would have her own series. M.J. Holliday has two rules, one, she and her partner, Gilley Gillespie, work alone; and two, she doesn’t date clients. But when handsome Dr. Steven Sable needs her help, the specter-spotting sleuth is ready to break both her rules and it seems the hot doc’s grandfather jumped from the roof of the family lodge in an apparent suicide. But Dr. Sable knows in his bones it was foul play, and strange things keep happening at the lodge so he’ll hire M.J. and Gilley—but only if he can come along. Hey, the duo needs the money—and looking at eye candy all weekend doesn’t sound too bad, either, but once they reach the lodge, the three realize they’re dealing with more ghosts than just Grandpa Sable’s. And the spooks keep playing nasty tricks on their human visitors and to the untrained eye, it would appear that ghouls just want to have fun. But M.J. knows they’re communicating their distress—and it’s up to her to figure out why.

This novel is one of my favorites because the characters are so much fun to read about, especially M.J. and Gilley and Steven. Gilley is the goofey side-kick who is scared of the ghost that they bust for a living while M.J. is a brave medium who can deal with some very nasty ghosts and ghouls. As for the new client Dr. Steven Sable he is one interesting character who is very interesting in getting to know M.J. better and not as a hired employee but as a potential lover. I have to say that I can’t wait to know more about M.J. and Steven’s future relationship because I see them as a very good couple. I also want to see what goes on with Gilley because he is a wimp when it comes to coming in contact with a real ghost that I sometimes have a hard time seeing why he is still in business with M.J. when he cleary would love to do something else. I was glad to learn of the second book coming out because it would continue to feed my new addiction to the M.J. Holliday Ghost Hunter Mysteries series. Here is the description of the books from the back cover and pictures:
WHAT’S A GHOUL TO DO? $ 6.99 (Book 1)(292 Pages)

M.J. Holliday’s a medium with a message—her business is helping lost souls cross over to the other side. But what if the ghosts want to stay put?

M.J. Holliday has two rules. One, she and her partner, Gilley Gillespie, work alone; and two, she doesn’t date clients. But when handsome Dr. Steven Sable needs her help, the specter-spotting sleuth is ready to break both her rules.

It seems the hot doc’s grandfather jumped from the roof of the family lodge in an apparent suicide. But Dr. Sable knows in his bones it was foul play, and strange things keep happening at the lodge. He’ll hire M.J. and Gilley—but only if he can come along. Hey, the duo needs the money—and looking at eye candy all weekend doesn’t sound too bad, either….

But once they reach the lodge, the three realize they’re dealing with more ghosts than just Grandpa Sable’s. And the spooks keep playing nasty tricks on their human visitors. To the untrained eye, it would appear that ghouls just want to have fun. But M.J. knows they’re communicating their distress—and it’s up to her to figure out why….

Phoebe Jordan

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
