Avis de l'équipe

When Alison Kerby bought a huge Victorian house in the New Jersey town of Harbor Haven, she didn't know that it already contained two permanent residents: eccentric ghosts named Paul and Maxie. So Alison only had one choice. She turned the house into a haunted bed and breakfast for senior citizens looking for a "unique vacation experience". In this second Haunted Guesthouse Mystery, E. J. Copperman's witty and accessible heroine helps solve a murder case - with the help of her paranormal colleagues.

Amanda Ronconi is an experienced comedic performer, and this audiobook is right up her alley. The dialogue, ghostly hijinks, and offbeat escapades are all enhanced by her excellent pacing and varied voices.

Description

Alison and her resident gumshoe ghost are on their next case when the deceased Scott MacFarlane floats in worried that he accidentally killed a prominent local woman. Turns out she's still alive...that is, of course, until she's murdered - in Alison's house. Now, between the demands of her guests and the arrival of a reality television crew, Alison must find the killer before she sees reality from the other side.

Great follow up

I really enjoyed this book. The characters are very realistic and funny. I received many strange looks for laughing out loud. I'm glad I discovered this series.

Life from the Dead's Perspective

Would you listen to An Uninvited Ghost again? Why?

Yes and love it everytime I listen to it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of An Uninvited Ghost?

Nothing special stands out, as the book flows along smoothly. Thats not to say there were not memorable moments, there are, but no particular one out of many comes to mind.

Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

A super narration by Amanda Ronconi, as are all of her readings.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There are so many laugh out loud scenes through out the story and none that might make you cry. I love this series. Wish I had a ghosternet. Very, clever indeed.

Any additional comments?

I was a little thrown off by the beginning of the book. I had a hard time reconciling it with the rest of the story. By the time we are back to Arlice Crosby from the first chapter I've forgotten about her. I usually start the book from Chapter 2.

A positively funny book!

If you could sum up An Uninvited Ghost in three words, what would they be?

Hilariously funny follow-up!

What did you like best about this story?

It builds on the series, while adding new mysteries to solve. The ending was definitely a surprise because the villain of the story isn't who you would assume it was.

What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She brings the characters to life with different voices for each character and in each book, the character's voice doesn't change. I like that in a narrator.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A guest house to run and I have a ghost who wants me to play Sherlock Holmes!

A fun Listen

Another great story in the cozy “Haunted Guesthouse Mystery” series which makes you feel right at home. The characters are fun and written to make them likable as well as interesting. The story keeps moving and has a bit of humor and to go with a bunch of plot twists. If you’re looking for something to keep you guessing and smiling I would highly recommend this series.

Mrs. Ranconi does a very good job with the accents and really helps to bring the characters to life!

Another Instant Hit

I am in love with these books, they are awesome! This one had an incredible twist that left me in the dust!! I love Scottish accents so that was an add plus. I love the author's ingenious use of the word "migraine!" That alone had me laughing till the ghosts came home! Perhaps if enough people listen to this book, "migraine" will become the news all purpose word! These books are the best and you are missing out if you don't give them a try.

Fun amid the chaos.

It was fun. The ghost, the Down the Shore cast, ghost tours. The character H-Bomb, hmm sounds like a jersey shore.

Light

A light listen. Nothing special, just a cute story. If you read the first of the series you should know what to expect.

Excellent Continuation of a Great Series.

If you could sum up An Uninvited Ghost in three words, what would they be?

Funny Ghostly Mystery. The story is hilarious. The interplay between Alison and the cop, Alison and her mother and daughter, and Alison and Maxi will have you in stitches. The mystery is real and the story has a surprise ending that I did not see coming.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, like all good mystery's this book gives you all the clues. It is well-paced with lots of suspects and little subplots. The ending is a surprise, but the clues were there all along.

Which scene was your favorite?

Maxi's birthday scene. The idea of celebrating a ghosts birthday humanizes the ghosts and is very well written. What do you get a ghost for her birthday? The answer was perfect.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

There's a Murderer in Your Guest House.

Any additional comments?

Fantastic second book to an excellent series. This book is very clean. No sex scenes or vulgarity. The f-bomb is replaced with the word "migraine." This is much more creative than using the actual word.

Fun Audiobook

I enjoyed this audiobook very much. Story has many twists and turns. I still find the narrator's voice a little grating at times but over all this is a fun audiobook.
