Today's review is on Me and My Ghoulfriends by Rose Pressey
As you will see, I have read Me and My Ghoulfriends after I have read Ghouls Night Out. This of course is the wrong order, but none the less entertaining. I must say however, I liked Ghouls Night Out a bit more. If I had read them in the correct order I would have found some things a bit repetitive, but that's what made the second book a good stand alone book to begin with.
In Me and My Ghoulfriends, we are introduced to Larue Donavan. A small book shop owner during the day and ghost hunter in the evenings. With her gift of being able to see and talk to the dead she finds herself amongst some famous "friends." Abraham Lincoln to just name one.
When the handsome Callahan Weiss moves into town and opens a coffee shop next door, Larue is instantly smitten. She's not the only one however. Brianna, the boutique owner across the street has her eyes on Callahan herself and will stop at nothing to have him, including casting a spell on him.
It's not enough that Larue has to help the four spirits hanging around her to cross over, she has almost been hit by a car, had a sign just miss falling on her and has been poisoned by chocolate. Now she has to deal with the hurt of watching Callahan follow Brianna around like zombie.
Everything works out in the end though. With the help of the local coven, Larue is able to lift the spell Callahan had on him, Brianna is dragged out of town, and all of the spirits cross over to the great beyond. Callahan even asks her out for another date after first thanking her for saving him. Just as everything seems to be coming together though, Larue gets a phone call. Her friends need her help and not with picking out a good book.
