This is the third in the Dead Man series about two ghosthunters and their friends, animals and the adventures they have while helping ghosts to pass over to the Light.
This one starts with a gruesome murder in a hotel, as a woman is found hanging with her hands cut off. This does later lead to a couple of very funny and well written scenes involving the ghost and her hands - or lack of them. All well and good - the story is funny and the characters are believeable. However - and its a pretty big

Great addition to the two books before!

Once again Twila and Alice are out to save lost souls. This is set in New Mexico at an old West hotel. We find gunslingers, saloon girls and the current day Realtors and hotel owners. The question is who is going to cross into the light, who is going to jail and is Alice really ever going to say farewell to ex-husband, Jack.

Great twists to keep this book different.

I've enjoyed this series and I like the characters. This 3rd book could have used an editor, however. 'Granny's childish lingo was overdone and a little annoying. The plot was vague and the conclusion not very believable. Throughout the story, the main character(s) were figuring things out with almost no input. This was a little confusing. I'm being generous with my 3 star rating. It is probably a max 2.5.

Alice, Granny, Jack and Twila wind up in the Old West with their ghost hunting, paranormal activities and a bit of romance. What secrets are buried in the old hotel in a small New Mexico town. Where the old west is still alive and the sheriff is crooked. Amusing with interesting characters.

It's no great literary work, but the story is relatively engaging. The final scenes were... bizarre.

Also, I've never liked Jack.

It's a routine trip for the gang to cleanse ghosts so that a hotel can sell. However there is a murder on the first day. Too similar to the last book in that way. Lots of humor.
