Frances Kermeen bought the Myrtles Plantation of St Francisville with the dream of turning the historic site into a cosy inn. When it turned out to be haunted, she feared losing customers but interest in the ghosts meant she gained custom. Here, she tells stories collected from 150 haunted hotels across America.

Don't read this while you're traveling, like I did....Every hotel we stayed at I swore was haunted! :/ It is an amazing book. Well written, and full of great ghosty goodness!
Brandy
I really enjoyed this book!! It made me want to take a road trip across the US touring all the haunted inns/hotels!!
Derrick College
Good for tourists.. gives u a little history and legend about each place. I wanted to know more about both.

I love a good ghost story and this one is full of them. Real life accounts, although it needs a little grammatical corrections-and the hilarious fact that the author refused to visit most of the locations herself-so these are second person accounts-this book is still great. The author is the owner of Myrtle Plantation-and has some interesting tales to tell.
Joanne
This was really more of a travelogue than ghost stories. While the inns and hotels that are written about are haunted, I found that there was not enough written about the histories as there was about accomodations offered at each inn. I would have loved to learn about less inns than to read more about the hauntings.

Not as good as the Myrtles book; mostly just short little chapters & kinda kitschy
Jennifer
Interesting but the entries got kind of repetitive after awhile.
Lacey Triche
It was okay. I didn't like it as much as her book on The Myrtles.
Annie
A great guide to America's haunted hotels and inns!
Molly
