M.J., Gillie, and their new business associate Heath Whitefeather venture off to Scotland to film a series of busts for Bravo channel's Ghoul Getters. They are working with Gopher, who we met in their previous outing, on this venture. While at their first stop, the crew meets up with a super-nasty grounded spirit named Rigella who is the Witch of Queens Close. Rigella was a local witch whose family was murdered when she was unable to heal all of the town's residents from a particularly nasty out ...more

In "Ghouls Haunt to Have Fun", Medium MJ Holliday had been one of 4 mediums called in as an "expert" on what seemed to be "haunted" objects for a TV special. Heath WhiteFeather and MJ were the only true mediums of that 4some, and the producer came to them with a pitch from the Bravo network to work on a new cable show called 'Ghoul Getters', which would have them visiting some of the most haunted places in the world. This novel takes them to Scotland, and MJ's childhood best friend and business ...more

Victoria has outdone herself again! For me, this is the best book yet in the Ghost Hunter series. It was hard to put this one down. It has action the whole way through, and was enjoyable to the very last page. It give you a bit of a cliff hanger with her relationship with her fellow psychic Heath.
This wonderful adventure in Scotland, intermingled with the tragic and cruel history of the plague, some tidbits of "helpful hints" for ghost hunters, a possible new love in her life, and a scenario wit

I enjoyed this book, it is definitely action packed. I'll start with what I'm not fond of, first even though I wasn't crazy about Steven, I think he deserved a little effort in this book. Second I have not been and really don't expect to be a fan of Gilly, I couldn't stand when my kids whined never mind listening to it from an adult. Now that being said what I do like is the addition of John, Kim and Meg, although they didn't have huge parts I think they added some stability to the characters. I ...more

Technically this series is paranormal mystery rather than PNR/UF, but this category is often included as a subcategory of PNR so there you go. The series is about M.J. Holliday, a psychic medium & ghost-buster and her flamboyantly gay business partner, Gilley. In each book M.J. and Gilly tackle a new haunting problem of some sort. In this book, they're in Scotland shooting a ghost-busting TV show when they run into the strongest and scariest ghosts they've ever encountered - a witch and her ...more

This is Victoria Laurie twisting her Abby psychic eye plots up a notch. In the Physic Eye mystery series, Abby (who gives psychic readings) has spiritual help from the other side to solve mysteries. In these Ghost Hunter mysteries, M.J. and her friends are ghoul hunters making a TV series to entertain the public with ghosties and ghoulies to scare you silly--and M.J. hopes to help to send grounded spirits to the other side. M.J. is a tougher character than Abby and the stories are scarier and mo ...more

I initially read this series out of order. I've recently been rereading it in order, and it's even more fun! The Ghost Hunter Mystery series is perfect for when you want a light read that's both a mystery and an adventure -- and when you want something that will make you smile a lot.

My old review:
Even though I'm reading the series completely out of order, I'm loving Victoria Laurie's Ghost Hunter mystery series. In this mystery, MJ and crew are in Scotland to film some haunted caverns outside

Interesting premise, but I find the characters annoying. Gilley needs to be killed off. He is one of the most awful characters I've ever come across. Weak, shrill, whiny, and fairly useless, he brings nothing but annoyance to each story. The main character, a spiritual medium ghost hunter named M.J., would be a strong character if she stopped making googly eyes at nearly every male she comes across. It's as if everyone she comes across is gorgeous too. Isn't this supposed to be more of a mystery ...more

This is the second of the Ghost Hunter Mystery series that I've read, and the last. I was a bit ambivalent about picking this one up (I don't remember disliking the other Victoria Laurie book I'd read, but don't remember being particularly impressed, either). I stuck through this one because I wanted to see how the mystery was resolved (not too shabbily, I'll give the author that). But I either didn't like or just didn't care about any of the character (not the mains, not the minors, and especia ...more

Ugh. This book was HORRIBLE. Now before I started my review I wondered how much the hullabaloo on Amazon about the very public tantrum Victoria Laurie pulled when she got a bad review on one of her books would color my opinion of the book. I tried very hard not to let it, but when you know that the author deliberately models a bad character after someone who gave her an honest but bad review just to spite them, then the whole tone of the book becomes one bitch-fest. And boy, is MJ Halliday chann ...more

I borrowed this book yesterday from my grandmother, who is a big fan of Laurie's work. Although it's the fourth one in the series, which I had never read before, it was pretty easy to figure out who the characters were and what was going on.

It wasn't bad, but there were a lot of things that disappointed me about this. There was so much potential for a great mystery with plenty of unexpected twists and turns, but that didn't really happen.

Book 4 in the Ghost Hunter Mystery series. I'm not sure if its me or what but I think these books get better and better. This is yet another one set in Scotland. (What can I say I love Kilts and bagpipes!) And this one has a nasty ghost of a witch. I flew through this book quickly because once I started reading it I had a hard time putting it down. I definitely recommend this series if you like mystery's with a paranormal twist!
Dec 24, 2015 Ashley rated it it was ok
My least favourite so far. At one point I was mentally screaming at the characters to work out the incredibly obvious "mystery". Like, there were enough clues that the author practically hit the reader over the head with a brick. Yet it still took the characters several chapters to work it out!

Plus, I am not liking how M.J. & Steven's relationship was so quickly dropped to make room for Heath. I think he's an okay character, but it seems way too forced.

Additionally, Gilley is still annoying

So they did it. I was worried from the beginning of this book that Stephen was going to go away... And Laurie pulled the biggest "slut" move I can think of. So I am 29 years old. I realized about 3 chapters in this book that their relationship was over. Why does she not tell him. The very act at the end of this book, is the definition of cheating.

There are many tendencies I have towards being this guy, the Stephen guy. He is nice, genrous, trusting, helpful. But apparently for our heroine if yo
