They get called to investigate a haunting with another Savannah ghost hunting team. During a press conference for the case, Betty notices a man staring at her from the shadows ... with red eyes! When the press conferen...more

Ever since first discovering the TV series "Ghost Whisperer" , I've become more and more interested in these ghost hunting novels -obsessed with tv shows like Pretty Little Liars, Supernatural and Medium . Though when I think about it , even when I was little I loved Ghost solving movies like Ghostbusters and one that used to play on TV called "Ghost Writer".
Ghost of a Threat is the first book in a new series by Beth Dolgner called the "Betty Book Ghost Hunter" , I loved the character's name be...more

Author Beth Dolgner certainly knows how to dole out the shivers: I pretty much screamed my way through the Prologue (and loved it). Turns out I was frightened with good reason, for the case which Betty and her Savannah Spirit Seekers set to investigate involves not just a scary haunt, but a malicious spirit who trails physical injury in its wake. But Betty and her crew find they have competition in locating this elusive haunting: egotistical paranormal diva Carter Lansford, the media darling, is...more

Oh my....I don't usually give books a 5-star rating....because they have to be especially life altering to get that in my mind. But....Ghost of a Threat definitely deserves this 5 star rating as far as I am concerned.

It is not just another paranormal plot,Ms. Dolgner had taken it up several notches and made it increasingly more appealing....for me at least because there are NO vampires.

In Ghost of a Threat, Beth Dolgner, takes the reader on a paranormal journey with mysterious happenings. She ke...more

Okay, confession time. When I saw this book, I became interested because of the title. After I read the book description, I thought I would give it a try. I'm really glad I did because it really is a very interesting read. It also makes me want to go to Savannah, Georgia.

Betty Boorman works for a healthcare company by day and investigates ghost sighting on the weekend because everyone knows that Savannah is the capital for ectoplasmic activity. Betty is single and it seems her friends are quite...more

Ghost of a Threat (Betty Boo, Ghost Hunter, #1)

I really wanted to like “Ghost of a Chance”. I did like that this book had a diversity of characters, a storyline that seemed more interesting and fun than the more typical ghost hauntings . I enjoyed the authors creativity, and found that there were even a few twists that surprised me.

What I didn’t like was the book didn’t flow for me. The writing seemed jerky. Going from scene to scene felt very abrupt, and I felt m...more

I love me a good ghost story and this one definitely fits into that category. The story concerns Betty; by day she is a marketing exec and by night she’s a paranormal investigator. Betty and her crew go around Savannah, Ga. investigating the local’s claims of their houses being haunted. I was hoping there would be more concentration on the paranormal investigation parts, however Beth made up for the lack of that with the story line. The first case discussed is Sam McIntosh’s house; this turns ou...more

I love books about ghosts so of course I had to check this one out. What really sold me on getting this book was having the heroine be a professional ghost hunter. A great angle! The story from beginning to end held my attention and kept me riveted until it was over. This book I didn't set aside to finish reading later. I HAD to find out how it was all going to end. The introduction of a demon was a little unexpected and I wasn't sure if I was going to like that angle but it totally worked for t...more

When Ms. Dolgner contacted me to read Ghost of a Threat I was unsure but it sounded interesting so I decided to give it a chance. OMG! I am so glad I did! I couldn't put it down.

Betty "Boo" Boorman was a wonderful main character that I loved getting to know. Ms. Dolgner created a unique and realistic character. She is a strong and decisive woman who brings a wonderful dimension to this novel. Betty's friengs were great supporting characters. I only wished we got to know more about them. Maxwell,...more

I LOVED it!!! As most of you know, I'm a paranormal investigator and reading this book was like going out with my very fantabulous team of investigators and searching for the paranormal.

Though, to date, we've never found a demon! LOL!

This book is DELIGHTFUL and DELICIOUS! There's history of Savanna, Georgia in here that's just interesting! THIS is the way to learn about an area's history!

This was a fast, fun, lovely read! Loved the characters, LOVED the setting, loved the plot, the Voice and...more
