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

This book was utterly amazing!! I loved it from start to finish. The characters were solid. They were explained early on. I loved the relationship between MJ and Gilly! Their bond was great. As a paranormal investigator myself it was very intriguing. That and the Native American folk lore involved, and the plot was superb. It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole book! Can't wait to read more of her's.

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
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

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.

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
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

Ghoul Interrupted takes up where Ghouls, Ghouls, Ghouls left off with the three main characters, M.J., Gilley, and Heath going to New Mexico so Heath can attend his uncle's funeral. An ancient demon has been released and is killing members of the Whitefeather family. They have to find a way to vanquish the demon. Fast paced making it a quick read, it was a entertaining read.
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
Barbara ★
This case hits too close to home when a violent demon tries to take out Heath's entire bloodline - one member at a time. M.J. and Gilley get in lots of trouble out on the reservation while Heath does his best to keep his family from the demon.

The suspense/terror quotient was rather high in this one with the crazy, scary dragon/demon thing. Yikes. M.J., Gilley and Heath were definitely out-classed in this one.

Thoroughly enjoyable and I liked finally learning some of Heath's background.

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

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

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
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

Oh the parrot was in this one.. Gotta love that part.. Victoria Laurie really knows how to throw some one off that is for sure. I am truly enjoying this series though and can't wait to read the next one
Well I am enjoying the stories and I like the pacing of clues and overall pacing. Oddly, I am not really that fond of the two main characters. I often find them to be rude and actually mean to each other as well as to outsiders, but unless they really put me off I will still read the series. Any book that honestly presents clues to follow and I can't figure out the whole thing before finishing chapter 3, is fun to read. There is one thing that really bugs me though. By book 6 one would think the ...more
Jessica (a GREAT read)
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

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

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
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

This book has the reappearance of MJ’s hilarious pet bird Doc and her best girlfriend Teeko. Also, Gilly once again plays the drama queen expert computer hacker who is adamantly loyal to MJ. This book also had old tribal stories that kind of reminded me of the Twilight series where Jacob tells his tribes history of the wolves. I did really enjoy this book and I literally couldn’t put it down. MJ and Heath really struggle with any leads to discover how and why this spirit is hunting his family wh ...more
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

I’m a wimp when it comes to scary novels. I like my horrific creatures served up with a large dose of humor.

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.

I loved this book. I found it interesting with the customs of Heath's tribe and the whole story behind the demon. I actually liked Gil in this book, he was toned down a little but kept enough of his complaints to still be him. I was finally able to see what M.J. sees in him. My only drawback(not so much a drawback as a worry) is with each new book the demon is getting bigger and badder, I think that it will eventually get to be too much, I wouldn't mind reading some simpler ghost busts, but that ...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
