What's a Ghoul to Do by Victoria Laurie

In the first of what promises to be a fun new series, Victoria Laurie entertains us with WHAT'S A GHOUL TO DO? MJ and her partner, Gilly are ghost busters. Yeah, yeah, they've heard all the jokes, but nothing else explains what they do better than that.
MJ and Gilly are hired by a handsome sexy doctor who wants them to make contact with his grandfather's ghost. Dr. Delicious inherited his grandfather's lodge, and they say his ghost is sticking around and has already scared people away. MJ and Gilly hope to set his spirit to rest and find out for the good doctor if his grandfather's death was a suicide, an accident, or murder.

The best word to describe this book is “fun”. It's not a book to take too seriously. MJ is a medium who communicates with ghosts. Personally, I don't buy into that kind of thing at all (no offense to the talented author intended!), but it makes an adorable story. So if you keep your point of view light-hearted and open minded, you'll be charmed by WHAT'S A GHOUL TO DO?
I found MJ's personality fairly similar to Abby Cooper in the PSYCHIC EYE series also by Victoria Laurie. They are both mediums by trade, have men trouble and find catastrophe around every corner. The main difference being MJ grew tired of doing readings and decided to branch out into helping ghosts cross over. It's a fun concept and makes for a great cozy mystery.

If you're looking for a pleasant way to spend a weekend curled up with a book and a nice cup of tea, I predict WHAT'S A GHOUL TO DO? will bewitch you!
