Recommends it for: GhostHunter Fans
The third in the series and I am still really enjoying them.

In this episode (cue organ music) M.J. and Gilley are off to San Francisco to participate on a Bravo T.V. Show on psychics. They of course are staying at The Duke Hotel - the most haunted hotel in San Francisco, so to say that there are shenanigans aplenty would be an understatement. Add to this mix: murder, haunted items, fake psychics and horny T.V. producers - and you got yourself a story.

I think the series hit a turning point in i

Recommended to Sandie by: John at Murder by the Book
Gilley Gillespie, the technical side of the partnership of Gilley with MJ Holliday, a psychic medium, had a new idea to make them big bucks and get some free advertising on the side. Hollywood had called with the idea of a sort of haunted Antiques Roadshow to be broadcast on their favorite cable network, Bravo. Gilley is totally excited about the idea, MJ says no way, and their business partner and former client, Dr. Steven Sable was already packed. After much deliberation and discussion, the th ...more

M.J. Holliday is back and in San Francisco, in a old haunted hotel, set up for a t.v. program by her business partner & childhood friend Gilley. Three other psychics are brought in, two at the last minute who happen to be frauds....

Arriving at the hotel just as the body of a young woman is being removed from the sidewalk, M.J. talks to the Detective and convinces him (through talking with the ghost of the deceased) that a murder has occurred.

From there the plot thickens and becomes spookier

I love Victoria Laurie's books whether it's Abby Cooper Psychic Eye or M. J. Holliday Ghost Hunter. This is an M. J. book and really scary but fun.

M. J. gets snookered into appearing on a reality show - a haunted Antiques Roadshow - where she and three other psychics will examine objects to see if they are evil or not. She doesn't want to do it, but her best friend/business partner Gil has already signed the contracts. With her boyfriend, Steven, in tow, they fly off to San Francisco to the most

This is the 3rd installment of Victoria Laurie's Ghost Hunter Mysteries. It it by far the best in the series. M.J. has agreed to go on a Tv show in San Fransisco to bust haunted items, like old tea pots and the like. As soon as she arrives at the hotel named "The Duke" (the worlds most haunted hotel) she comes across a fresh murder crime scene. Now she faces many ghosts inside the hotel, who turn out to be good for piecing clues together to solve the crime... as well as a knife that releases a d ...more

My crack series. At least this is what I call it. Like I've said before I don't know why I get so sucked into these books. I just can't stop reading them. I gotta know what happens! In this book MJ gets invited to do some readings for a show called Haunted Possessions. She is VERY leary about doing it. Because she doesn't want to exploit her talent. Her and fellow psychic Heath have to sharpen their skills when one of the objects, a knife, turns out to be a portal that releases a nasty demon in ...more
Lauri Saplad
I love M.J. She is so quirky and funny, but strong at the same time. This story tells how she met up with Gopher and and Heath and embarked upon her career on Ghoul Getters, a new show on Bravo. If only it were a real show! Gilley and M.J. Are as hysterical as ever together. Gotta love the characterization. You feel as thought you've known they forever... It's also cool how she can speak t o spirits and help them cross over to the other side. Wonder if the magnet thing really works, though...
Liza Gilbert
I love the fun of Laurie's paranormal novels. They are light, fluffy, and pure entertainment. However, the character of M.J. is getting a little mean and rhymes-with-itchy. It's getting hard to care whether good or bad things happen to her. Also, it's getting increasingly apparent that Laurie really has made no discernible distinction between the character in the Ghost Hunter Mysteries and Abby Cooper of the Psychic Eye series. That said, I enjoy the fun of them.
Really enjoyed reading this. With the setting of a haunted hotel it had many different ghosts and their background story. Some moments were really scary (view spoiler) and the concept of knife is interesting (view spoiler)
This one was a real nail biter. Loved the storyline and the well developed characters. A TV show is born and a hotel is needing some ghost cleared out. M. L., Gilley, Steven and a new character Heath are tested at every corner. I can't wait for the next book.

3 and a half stars from me.
This is part of a series of books written by real-life psychic Victoria Laurie.
It's not the first book in this series, but it is the first one that I picked up and it can easily be read as a stand-alone.
Its a fast and easy read, with a mixture of humour and suspense. M.J Holliday is talked int appearing on a TV show by Gilly, her business partner The show is being promoted as a cross between The Antiques Roadshow and Ghostbusters. MJ and other psychics will sense wha

I'm not sure if I mentioned it in the previous book of this series I read but I do love that Victoria Laurie mentions what inspired her or gave her the idea for the story.

This tale takes place in the Hunted Duke Hotel where M.J. (somewhat unwillingly) participates in haunted possessions show and solves a mystery or 2 while she's at it.

This was a wild ride. The ending was a flurry of, "Ooh, he did it?! Nope! Oh dang, he did it?! Nope! So he--" A good paranormal whodunit.
I really enjoy this series, and my rating would be higher...if not for Gilley. He annoys me 95% of the time and really isn't a very good friend. I wouldn't forgive half the stuff he pulls.
I'm intrigued to see where the stories will go after the events of this book...has the potential to be spooky fun.

What kind of blurb is that??!! It just doesn't say much does it.....well let me tell you! M.J. is roped into taking a job in San Francisco where she will be doing readings on items that people think are haunted or possessed. The kicker is she will be filmed with an audience and working with three other psychics. The one thing I didn't mention is how Gilley, M.J.'s best friend, signed her up for it without asking her first!! After a lot of yelling and arm twisting, M.J. finally comes to terms wit ...more

Well... I did it. I actually caved and tried the next one in this series. Again, the Scooby vibe is strong with this one. So far, this is possibly the most Scooby so far, complete with multiple attempts by our heroine to explain and give a solution. MJ (the main character) is increasingly bratty with each successive book. She is demeaning and so very rude. While I appreciate a strong, opinionated person willing to stand for themselves, this goes a bit beyond that. She's just rude. You cannot con ...more

Gilley Gillespie is always looking for ways to find business for his best friend, ghost buster M.J. Holliday, so he is quick to sign her up for a TV show that is a kind of haunted Antiques Road Show. M.J. agrees to go on the show thinking she would just be looking at haunted possessions, but before she knows it she is wrapped up in a murder investigation, staying at a haunted hotel, and trying to get rid of an evil knife that contains a demon. It is going to take all that M.J. and fellow medium ...more

Because they need the money, MJ reluctantly agrees, but gets more than they bargained for when someone brings in a dagger that is a portal for a demon, who is now loose in the haunted hotel where they are staying.

It was so easy to fall back into this world, especially with Gilley's antics haha. He is by far one of my favorite characters, he is definitely the comedy relief during M.J.'s stressful times. And boy were there some stressful times as there was a ghost at almost every corner, it even had Gilley's greedy mouth clamp up tight from fear.

Another fun entry in the M.J. Holliday "Ghost Hunter" series, however the back of the book detracts from the overall quality of the book:
When M.J. agrees to use her paranormal abilities on a new TV show called Haunted Possessions, she hopes her gift will not be expolited. Neither M.J. nor her fellow medium Seth realizes how much they'll need to sharpen their psychic skills when one of the objects--a knife--turns out to open a portal that releases a demon.

This was the third book I've read in this series, and let me just say that now I'm even more afraid of the dark. The problem is that I finally read the back of the book where it says that Victoria Laurie is a practicing psychic medium in real life. Does that mean that the things that happen in her book could possibly be real? Squeak!

In this book Gilley, M. J.'s primary partner, has snookered her into appearing on a new reality TV show being filmed in San Francisco called "Haunted Possessions," a

Book 3 of the Ghost Hunter Mystery by Victoria Laurie was by far the scariest one I have read thus far! A haunted hotel- after watching The Shining I cannot look at hotels the same way again!- and our ghost hunters battling it out with the meanest demons.
The plot occurs with Gilley signing M.J. up for a T.V. show that will feature her and other mediums to decipher the whereabouts/messages from beyond the grave from items left behind by said ghosties. At first what seemed to be a silly and harml
