First Thought when Finished: An Uninvited Ghost by E.J. Copperman was a fun entry into the series. The characters are just fantastic!

Story Thoughts: Oh My! What do you do when you turn your house into a B&B and then someone ends up dead? Well if you are Alison you try not to investigate but with pesky ghosts bugging you too, you end up doing it anyway! The mystery was fun in An Uninvited Ghost. You could mostly tell who was responsible about half way though but watching the story play out was still entertaining. One of the things I love about this series is the police are involved. Alison does work with them and even tries to stay out of the way. Things never quite go that well for her but at least she tries. I think most cozy mystery lovers will like the mystery and how it plays out!

Character Thoughts: Let’s talk ghosts! I don’t think there is a better duo of ghosts than Paul and Maxie. They both bring such life to the series. Neither has been dead very long so you get some “growing” pains and adjustments that just make you laugh (and sometimes tear up). Ali is a kick butt leading lady. She is a single mother to a very smart kid and has a mother that is supportive (and yet a little off). Of course, all 3 can see ghosts so that plays into their personalities as well. The “Off The Shore” cast that was in this book was hilarious and the “Old Folks Vacationers” were delight too. EJ Cooperman just writes good characters!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated by: Amanda Ronconi /Length: 9 hrs and 31 mins

I almost sound like a broken record where Amanda’s narration is concerned but I have never heard her do a bad job–EVER! Seriously she just does quirky better than anyone. She has great pacing and just the right amount of “snark” in her voice. I adore her narration.

Final Thoughts: I am off to get the 3rd book in the series πŸ™‚

  1. I’m not a big fan of cozy mysteries but it does sound fun. I’m off to check what else Amanda Ronconi has narrated … love getting narrator recommendations πŸ™‚

    • Oh Amanda Ronconi is one of my favorites. She has done a lot but my favorites are the Half Moon Hallow and Jane Jameson series. I think you would like the Bluegrass Baby series though.

  2. I have long wondered about this series. THe covers always attract me. I am so happy it is funny and that the police are invovled. I want to meet these ghosts. I will see if my library has an audio copy.

    • It is really fun. I have listened to 3 of them and they were all fun. The side characters really steal the show but that often happens in cozies πŸ™‚
