This was definitely my least favorite one in the series. It wasn't awful, but it was definitely missing some of the spark that the other ones had.

I loved seeing Doc again but Teeko stopping by just seemed unnecessary, like the author realized she hadn't made an appearance in three or so books and threw her on the scene. I also like Heath a lot, but this book had some weird out-of-character moments for him. Gilley was toned down in this book, though, thank goodness!

The mystery on this one was a...more

Really don't like where the characters have gone since the series started. Gilly started off neurotic but kind of sweet and cute but has just turned into an annoying character and a shadow of what he started off as in the first book. The author just seems to enjoy adding a new neurosis for each book. If he was honestly as terrified of everything in the books I would expect him to be a live at home agoraphobic.

Also MJ's character has become kind of a cold hearted twit as the series goes, I miss...more

My best friend has an author (probably more than one; but one I know of for sure), that she calls her comfort read. I have a few authors I would call my comfort reads – authors you can count on to deliver a good, well-written and enjoyable story. You may know how the story will progress (maybe not always); but you also know you will enjoy the story. Rarely are you disappointed.

Victoria Laurie is one of my comfort reads. I stumbled upon her last year, and quickly had to devour all the books in p...more

The last time we saw the Ghost Hunters crew, they were in Ireland removing a phantom from a castle. There is a possible basis for a show in Dunkird, but they have to put aside these plans and head to New Mexico to deal with the death of Heath's Uncle Milton.

M.J.'s spirit guide Sam Whitefeather (who happens to be Heath's grandfather) appears in a dream to warn her of this just before Heath is notified by his cousin. Sam informs M.J. that Milton has been unable to cross over because of the traumat...more

Our ghost hunting team of MJ and Heath and Gilley are wrenched from their current agenda home to New Mexico to Heath's ancestral home. The reason? Murder!

MJ receives a visit from her Spirit Guide, Whitefeather who is Heath's grandfather. Sam Whitefeather tells MJ that Heath's Uncle, Milton has been murdered by a Demon and the tribe needs her help to rid the family of the evil or they will all die!

As per usual, traveling with MJ is our favorite best friend, Gilley who is the resident scaredy cat....more

FABULOUS book by author Victoria Laurie. This, the sixth in her Ghost Hunter series, is another example of Ms. Laurie's flexibility. Each new book has taken the characters in a new direction and into uncharted territory, keeping the stories fresh and exciting. In "Ghoul Interrupted" MJ Holliday, her fellow medium and boyfriend Heath Whitefeather and her best friend Gilley Gillespie are forced to abandon filming of their new TV show "Ghoul Getters" in order to go to Heath's home in New Mexico fo...more

Finally, Victoria Laurie has broken away from the Scooby-Do feel of the previous books in the Ghost Hunters Mystery series. I was beginning to get a little worried on the future of these books with the same path being taken book after book. Gilley will always be the neurotic best friend of M.J. and he will always be able to eat his way through the left side of the menu, but I think this little buttercup is starting to man-up.

After a frantic call M.J., Heath and Gilley hightail it to New Mexico t...more

He's just a character, so I don't feel bad for saying this: Gilley needs to die. Or at least quit whining so much. He's the worst thing about this series (ignoring M.J's occasional too stupid to live moments), and if he was either gone or toned down some, I would like the series.

He's not even worth it half the time. Yes, in this book he was somewat helpful, hacking and searching, but it's the most helpful he's been the entire series. Eithher he's eating and getting off when somebody points out t...more

I am half way through with the book at this point and I am seriously considering just putting it down. It is not holding my attention and the author keeps repeating herself and then contradicting herself. Sometimes it feels like Laurie has forgotten what she wrote 20 pages earlier. The book starts with M.J. having a conversation with her spirit guide, Heath's grandfather, Sam about the demon that is hunting and killing his family. He tells M. J. that the only way to get rid of the demon is to ki...more

After the somewhat unfortunate Ghouls Ghouls Ghouls which is apparently a New York Times Bestseller, (hmm, not that the series doesn't deserve to be on the list) I was hoping this next book would be able to get this series back on its feet, and not only did it do just that, Ghoul Interrupted blew it away. I loved just about everything in this book from the characters, main and supporting, to the plot, the setting, and the demon, of course. I really like that we got to know more about Heath, as w...more
Jennifer
I loved that in this book we get to know a lot more about Heath. He has been my favorite character since he entered the series in book three. I was also happy to see M.J. and Gilley supporting him like he was family. I know Heath would do the same for them. He is so sweet and protective of M.J. They make the perfect couple but I was glad Steven was mentioned. It's nice to know for sure how M.J. feels about both of them. I also enjoyed a little break from the filming of their ghost hunter TV show...more

Overall, I like this series by Victoria Laurie, and this was definitely up there with the rest of them. My only complaint, and it is one that I not only have with this series, but typically have with mysteries in general, is that it always seems to be all of these little clues and red herrings, with much confusion about what's going on, and then once the culprit has been found and taken care of, thre is a big information dump: 'well, I figured out it was Mr. X when..." to explain what took place...more

All right, finally read the last book on my release list from last year--although I still have a ton of other books I discovered from 2011 and earlier! Victoria Laurie's Ghoul Interrupted was fabulous! Sadly, this was the first time I was unable to read the book in day since I now work again, part time. So I win and lose I guess.

But it was still a fabulous read! I love Victoria's mysteries! They are so compelling and intriguing that I hardly ever want to put the book down! Generally the ghosts a...more

I ripped through this in a day and a half ~ getting very little sleep I might add - ;)and for good reason! I suppose I could have waited until the full moon was over before I started reading but...where's the fun in that? Besides, we all enjoy a good shiver now and again, (except maybe poor Gilly) right? *whispering ~ Gilly Gilleshpie* I love the fact that M.J. and Heath are together and their bond seems to be growing. It was wonderful to get a taste of Native American culture, something that I...more

My English review


I was waiting for this release for a while now and what a pleasure to find MJ, Gilley and Health in this new adventure. Each volume is always very pleasant to read, I couldn’t wait to get into this one.

Our trio must go to New Mexico in less than desirable conditions. Indeed, the uncle of Health just died and MJ and Gilley accompany him as support. But things get complicated when Sam comes to notify to our ghost hunter that the culprit is a demon and nothing w...more
Joanne
I enjoyed this book just as I have enjoyed the other books in the series, and it didn't scare me TOO much!

M. J. and her crew of ghost hunters are supposed to be on their way to another haunting, when Sam, the spirit of Heath's grandfather tells M. J. that Heath's uncle has been murdered, and that a demon possessing a human is not only responsible, but is after the rest of the Whitefeather family! He also tells her that she is going to have to kill the person who has been possessed, which she is...more

This is the first book I have read by this author. It is part of a series starring M.J. (Mary Jo I think) Holliday and Gilley Gillespie. They are "ghost busters" who seek out the odd and the spooky and get rid of the disturbance. This is not the first book in the series, though it doesn't seem to matter too terribly if you don't read them in order. What the author could have done though is explain the purpose of the various tools they use. Some tools are mentioned like these metal spikes and som...more

I liked it but wasn't as enthused as I was with the first couple of books. I don't like that lust/love has made the main character forget her other obligations. I don't like she keeps pawning her FIRST obligations off to other people. Good book but kind of losing my affection for the series. But nearly done with it so will keep going.

Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books...

1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.

2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.

3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.

4 sta...more

I've enjoyed this series from the beginning. There were a few things that bothered me throughout the first few books, mostly certain characters, but its become a favorite I look forward to reading.

This was a fun and creepy with plenty of laugh out loud moments from Gilley that I enjoyed! I love Heath and MJ and think they make a great team. The only thing that bothered me a little was that it was more of a demon monster instead of a ghost this time. I feel like the author is trying to make the g...more

I liked this one didn't love it but it was a good solid story. I loved all the Indian references in the story. I really enjoy Victoria Laurie's writing style and her books :)
Debbie Heaton
In Laurie's mystery novel, M.J. and her staff are forced to make a change in the busy schedule of their reality TV show, Ghoul Getters. M.J.'s spirit guide, Sam Whitefeather, and late grandfather to her boyfriend, Heath, appears urging them to go to New Mexico to stop an evil spirit determined to wipe out the Whitefeather clan. To stop the demon, they must find the person who released it first. With all their lives at stake, it's clear they will engage in a tribal warfare to make New Mexico a de...more
Rachelle
I don't think I'll be reading these books any longer. The attempts at comedic relief are cringe worthy, usually involving the main character's immature and offensively stereotypical gay friend, and they're just plain unfunny. The main character has an awful lot of obtuse moments for a supposed psychic. And the curse word replacements are ridiculous. It'd be better if the author just didn't bother with expletives at all.

I first gave up on this book a couple pages in, then attempted a second time...more

Totally loved this one. Never a dull moment and action packed, and we get to learn alot more about Heath's background. The last few books I was a little bummed Sexy Steven Sable had dropped out of the picture, but now I'm completely on board with the Heath/MJ relationship. Loved the Indian story/lure and how the Demon became the Demon. Gil never dissapoints; he's such a scream and I find myself grinning at things he does, and I was happy to see Doc again, too. January 2013 for the next book is w...more

MJ, Gilley and Heath travel to Heath's hometown after finding out that Heath's uncle has died. When MJ is visited by Heath's grandfather and finds out that his family is being hunted by an evil and ancient demon, MJ knows she's in for one hell of a ghost bust. Will she and Heath be able to figure out who's controlling the demon or will they be run off the reservation by Heath's surly uncles? Plenty of spooks and scares plus more romance between Heath and MJ. Not the best book in the series, but...more

I usually love these books but this one was just okay for me. I think the man issue I have is Heath and M.J. together....I feel like there is no chemistry between them and I long for when Steven was her boyfriend. The demon is pretty bad in this one, the worst I think the group has dealt with and this demon has a personal vendetta against Heath and his family. This story took me a long time to get through and I can`t put my finger on why but it wasn`t her best, but I have read reviews from her n...more
❂ Jennifer (reviews on BookLikes)
I love this series - it's totally implausible, but that's the best part for me. This series reads like every great ghost story I've loved since I was a teenager. I love reading about Native American tribal legends as well, so this book was particularly interesting. I have to say I desperately want to beat the tar out of Gilley cuz he's just too obnoxious to be endearing, and I guessed the bad guy pretty early in the book, but I still really enjoyed the story. I'm really looking forward to the ne...more

Ghoul Interrupted is another solid addition to a great series. M.J. continues to be tough AND smart (a rare combination in many modern fantasy novels) Heath continues to be sweet and dreamy and Gil continues to be a complete and utter wuss (all the while injecting hilarity). And finally, after sending a number of threatening letters to the author waiting patiently, DOC IS BACK! WOOT! I loves me some smart-talking parrot!

Fans of the series will not be disappointed with the action-packed plot and...more

The usual "scooby doo" scenario. I usually love these little ghost hunter mysteries for a good distraction, but I was very distracted by the fact that so many "things" from my home state were made up! The story took place in Santa Fe, NM, and admittedly I was excited....but then when she called "Jemez" by Jimez...I couldn't take it seriously (not that I usually do). It was a fast read per usual, but I hope the next hunting site isn't in a place that I know so well. It made me super critical.
