Psychic Surveys #3

44 Gilmore Street

Rate this book
"We all have to face our demons at some point." Psychic Surveys - specialists in domestic spiritual clearance - have never been busier. Although exhausted, Ruby is pleased. Her track record as well as her down-to-earth, no-nonsense approach inspires faith in the haunted, who willingly call on her high street consultancy when the supernatural takes hold. But that's all about to change. Two cases prove trying: 44 Gilmore Street, home to a particularly violent spirit, and the reincarnation case of Elisha Grey. When Gilmore Street attracts press attention, matters quickly deteriorate. Dubbed the 'New Enfield', the 'Ghost of Gilmore Street' inflames public imagination, but as Ruby and the team fail repeatedly to evict the entity, faith in them wavers. Dealing with negative press, the strangeness surrounding Elisha, and a spirit that's becoming increasingly territorial, Ruby's at breaking point. So much is pushing her towards the abyss, not least her own past. It seems some demons just won't let go... Shani Struthers is the author of AMAZON INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER: Psychic Surveys Book One: The Haunting of Highdown Hall and Psychic Surveys Book Two: Rise to Me. There is also a prequel to the series: Eve: A Christmas Ghost Story. All are available on Amazon.

I have just finished reading Psychic Surveys Book 3 - 44 Gilmore Street - by Shani Struthers, and I have to say this is my favourite so far. My advice is to read the previous two first because there's a back story concerning the investigators themselves; and although each book stands alone you would miss out on their personal journeys, which are largely defined by their line of work. In particular, Ruby was badly affected in the 2nd book, 'Rise to Me' and that experience is carried into this one. Shani is a skilful author and as such you do become attached to these characters and want to know how they get on!
I don't want to plot spoil but suffice to say there is a lot to keep you on your toes in 44 Gilmore Street and new themes are addressed - this time it's reincarnation. Elisha Grey is haunting herself! I found this book highly gripping and it kept me reading long after I should have turned out the lights - just one more chapter...just one more... it's a fast and entertaining read with quite a few surprises. The plots are set up so you just desperately need to know what happens; and one more thing -it's quite scary in places. She's a skilful author, like I say, and she knows just how to get under your skin!
Well done Shani-another brilliant read!

Huge thanks to Shani Struthers, Crooked Cat Publishing and NetGalley for this copy in exchange for an honest review.

While not as creepy as Rise to Me this still has that wonderful unsettling feeling to it.

More of a mystery to this one too, the storylines twist and move about and you can pick up on where they may be heading. We learn more about the back stories of the characters, Ness mostly this time, and it's done very well, as is all the writing about them all.

I still love Jed, he's wonderful!

I eagerly await a 4th story in this series because there's still so much more, I'm sure, about the characters that we don't know.

A new case for the Psychic Surveys team and a soul that needs to move towards the light. Ruby receives a call about a case she's unsure about. It may be another string to her company's 'bow,' but something about it unsettles her. Meanwhile, she and the rest of the team begin trying to help a male spirit move on from 44 Gilmore Street who seems determined to stay.

The third in the series, this book builds upon the previous cases and more is learnt about the main characters as they begin there newest case. I think this case is the most intriguing so far, I thought I could see how things were going to link together, but was wrong. That just made things all the more interesting though!

I've enjoyed the whole series so far and I like the author's writing style. All the books (but especially this one,) evoke a certain amount of concern and/or fear. Concern not that there's something lurking under the as you read, but that similar events could happen to anyone and anyone could need the help of Ruby or someone like her. Can I adopt Jed please? Just in-case!

Another great installment to the series and highly recommended to anyone who enjoys good paranormal suspense.

Though not as dark and scary as the previous book in the series, this is just as enjoyable as we find out more about Ness, one of the side characters in the book. Ness is my favourite character, so I was delighted. We see relationships between the characters and their abilities strained after the events in Rise to Me. This features reincarnation and an awful haunting of a family house right in the eye of the media. I lived how both things were intertwined. This is a great read, but I think is better read as part of the trilogy, not as a stand-alone book.

I really enjoyed this third book from the Psychic Surveys series. I found it gripping reading with twists and turns, although I sort of guessed the connection between Ellie and the house (not wishing to spoil anything!), but even then, there was a twist that I wasn't expecting. Nevertheless, it was well written and fast moving by Shani Struthers and I am getting to love each character involved (especially Jed) as I have an adoration for dogs anyway! I have downloaded Jessamine and am looking forward to reading that - just hope that more Psychic Surveys stories are coming soon, or I may start having withdrawal symptoms! Keep up the good work Shani - missing the Psychic Surveys team already!

The books in this series are getting better and better. I like how we get to know the team better as well. When I started this series I thought what can you write about a haunted house... Well you will be as surprised as I was. I love the writing style and the great charaters.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review and happy to give it. I have read the previous two novels to this series and loved them both. Although I think this particular novel could stand alone, it helps to have read the first two to gain a deeper understanding of the main characters. I didn't find this book to be as dark as the second one in the series although it faces some emotionally and socially challenging issues that the author writes with intelligence and sensitivity. I love the idea of a high street business which tackles everyday hauntings and the more we learn of the characters, the more we understand of their struggle to combine their gifts with their everyday lives. There are a few stories neatly woven into one in this novel and the author keeps us guessing and on our toes the whole way through (I guessed wrongly a couple of times, I have to confess!). I like the way this novel follows on from Psychic Surveys 2, explaining why Ruby needs a holiday. I have a sense of Ruby's back story building and I can't wait to read PS4 to see what happens next! Well done Shani Struthers - it's another cracker of a book!

I received an ARC in exchange for a review so here is mine.
I have read all of Shani Struthers books and i have found that each book she writes has surpassed the last. This genre is not an easy one to get right as it touches on a subject that has many different personal view points, however for me this author manages to deal with this in a sensitive and intelligent manor.
This latest book is well written, has humour and sorrow with just the right amount of apprehension and thrill. I love the way you can read her books as one off's but personally i love this series as ive been on a journey with Ruby ( the main female character) and Cash ( her boyfriend) from the start. I feel i know all the other characters too and cannot wait for the next one. Id advise anyone to read ALL of her books. Brilliant.

Amazing Series!!

This is book 3 in the Psychic Surveys series.. It is not a standalone, and you will need to read the first 2 books to get the full depth of the story.

I absolutely loved this book! The whole series so far has been amazing, but this one has just hooked me! I could hardly put it down! I love how in depth the histories go, as well as the details on the hauntings the team encounters. I've always had a fascination with stories that are tied to places, and I get that with this series. This one wasn't as dark as book 2, but it was heartwarming and provided a nice twist!

I'm thrilled to know this is going to be a 6 book series, I can't wait to read more!

Audiobook Review

These books are so full of life and characters. They’re a mile a minute & the people in them are brilliant. Ruby who runs the business, Ness & Theo who balance things out, who if I’m honest are my favourite characters. The interactions are fab.
The story this time had a kick to it that really got me going! I didn’t expect it to go the way it did. Really good!!
The narrator was lovely, a calm voice that kept me interested. In fact I listen at work & talk during the stories not these I pause these. Can’t miss a bit.
Excellent & well worth your credit or money

Did not disappoint

For some reason I read number 4 first! So can confirm they do not have to be read in order :-)
A great read as expected, friction between team members was interesting to see and itching to find out more about Ness's past.

A Good Read

This was Shani Struthers back to her best. A real page turner of a book, a gripping story with an unexpected end. Well recommended.

Another interesting and page turning tale of the people and spirits in the world of Psychic Surveys. The characterisation is good and the mystery keeps you guessing, and trying to work out the whats and whys right up to the end.There are periods where things drag as the pacing seems a bit inconsistent but not to the point of skipping pages or skim reading and it could just be me.
Ruby is an interesting character, at times quite unlikeable, whiny and lacking in emotional intelligence and maturity, and yet she works and feels quite real. The others are all also developing as individuals, as the series develops and in this one we find out a bit more about Ness in particular. I am looking forward to the next one.
A good story

44 Gilmore Street

Ruby and the Psychic Surveys team team take on their most difficult case yet. Not only are they dealing with a violent spirit who doesn't want to cross they have been approached by Ellie a young woman whose past life is incurring on the present.
In my opinion the best book in the series so far. The characters are stronger then previously and the storyline truly is gripping. Looking forward to book four in the series in the not to distant future.

Another fabulous read!

Another great read featuring the Psychic Surveys team, one which completely absorbed me all the way through. It feels as though I could find Ruby, Cash, Theo, Jed and co in my own town, helping stranded souls to find the light ... not just between this world and the next, but within themselves, too. This one is my favourite so far ... up next, Old Cross Cottage!

Thoroughly enjoyed

Yet again another amazing book by Shani Struthers. The in depth look into the characters helps brings her books to life. As I have said on previous reviews she has the ability to set a scene and create an atmosphere which really makes you get lost into the book. Truly great really do highly recommend this series! Can't wait for the rest!

Another great read

I love this author. I gave it only four stars due to the fact i felt it was a little drawn out. This won't ,however, stop me reading the next book or any others in the future.

Loved this book but Ruby 'over thinks' too much in it as in 'Rise To Me'! I couldn't help but wonder how Ruby could think so much whilst supposedly in such a dire position ..... she thinks as though she's writing at Tome! I also sensed that Ellie and what was happening at Gilmore Street were linked about 1/3rd of the way through the story but the ending was great ....
I've also noticed that what is said to the spirits they wish to 'help' is getting longer, almost a lecture!
Sorry about the negativity in this review, but Ruby and Chase are becoming a bit 'unreal'.

I'm reading 'Old Cross Cottage' now which seems to be just Ruby and Chase, so far. I just hope Chase shows some savvy and plays hell with Ruby if she continues to keep going off on one, without giving her the usual speedy forgiveness!

This series is a good set of ghostly stories. Enough 'scary' to keep the suspense but you can still sleep at night.

44 Gilmore Street...
Though truly deserving of five stars there were many typos, and not because of some the differences in spellings between Britain's English and America's English.
That being said I thought it was very good. This series just keeps getting better. I really agreed with Ruby about some of the issues that were brought up with Ness, and do think that the others should've been a bit less dismissive of her feelings. Quite honestly without giving away anything I felt Ellie was acting kind of stalkerish.

There honestly isn't a lot I can write that can honestly give this story justice. Just wow, I did not see that coming at all!! A brilliant twist!! It has certainly given me A lot to think about and perhaps alter my perception of things!!

Another well written and well constructed book in the series. I have just downloaded the last one, I'm hind of hoping that there are more in the authors head because I have connected so well to these characters!

Another haunting with one of the most vicious spirits yet! A young girl troubled by visions. A haunting by a rabbit (absolutely beautiful!!!) A delve into the main characters past and a twist that is brilliantly sneaked in. This book has it all!!

Questions and answers

Ruby certainly had many questions concerning this case with some very discerning answers.
A tough one this case with the added mystery to solve.
Another good story with psychic surveys coming up trumps.
