Book Review: Ghouls Night Out
Today's review is on Ghouls Night Out by Rose Pressey
I had purchased Ghouls Night Out on a whim and without knowing that it was the second book in Pressey's Larue Donavan series. Needless to say, I was happy to find that Ghouls Night Out was a good stand alone book. Not only that, it was quirky, snarky, and fun to read.
Larue Donavan who owns her own book store, has an amazing and at times annoying ability. She not only sees dead people, but she can talk to them. Deciding to do her part, she had been ghost hunting in her evenings in order to help these spirits move into the light and move on as well as help humans get rid of them. Though she is very good at her ghost hunting job, sometimes she brings her work home with her literally.
In this adventure she finds Mae West of all people along with a handsome, lad named Anthony who has all but fallen head over heel's for Larue. She however only has eyes for Callahan, the hunky coffee shop owner next door to her book shop.
When a new good looking stranger comes to town to take over his cousins business all hell breaks loose. The leader of the local coven becomes ill suddenly, Larue's BFF Mindy begins acting strange, as does Callahan. And she begins being followed by someone in the shadows.
With the help of Mae, Anthony, and Callahan's dead grandfathers ghost, Larue finds her father and thwarts the efforts of a power hungry Witch. In the end helping Mae and the men move on into the light.
Ghouls Night Out reminded me a bit of MaryJanice Davidson's Betsy Taylor without all of the sex. I found myself even giggling a bit.
Neat, clean, and humorous. What more could you ask for to read on a nice day at the beach.
3.5 of 5 stars
