I very much recommend this book & the first book in the series (A Ghost of a Chance) to anyone who wants to read a very different type of mystery. The characters are well drawn & complex--even to Stinky, the cat.

I was drawn in Ghost Town from the beginning, and remained absorbed throughout the whole book. I have to amit that I didn't always like the choices that were made, but understood why they were made.

This different approch in a mystery novel intrigued me--it

I like this series a lot- it makes me laugh and cry and get angry. Good signs. Viola is an angry and stressed out lady, just trying to make it through life. I love that she is learning to accept her gifts and that she is working hard to keep her dream job. I also like that she is not perfect, but she's working on getting better (at least in some aspects of her life).

Like the Germans would say "Wunderbar".
As you can see I like the book a lot. Viola is so angry at what happened to her in life that it is clouding her rational thinking and acting inappropriate, but it looks like she is getting her act together.
Her husband may not be the smartest, but he is like a lovable teddy bear and very devoted to her. She must give him a chance again.

The author does an excellent job of making us care about her characters so clearly that he want them bash Viola, the main character, over the head every time she’s mean to TB. As for the mystery, I double-dog dare you that you WON’T figure it out! Lots of characters to feel quite passionate about. Good read

Scooby Doo meets the ghost whisper

I don't think this author likes Yankees , it's thrown around quite a bit about us northern people . The last book the sister was pregnant, 2 book the kid is two years old if not older , it bounces around to much .

Love, love, love this book!

This book was great fun and I loved every minute of it. This series deserves more than five stars and it's a pity it had to end, but I'm hoping there will be more from Ms. Claire and Viola Valentine very soon.

I'm still hooked... Even though the editing issues are becoming more obvious. The writing is engaging, but the little malapropisms are a tad distracting. Where's her editor?

The characters are endearing, the locations and images evocative, and the mystery is enthralling. I stayed up way too late last night reading this, and I don't regret it. I really like this series!

I really enjoyed this book. It was as good as the first one in the series, maybe better. I admire an author that does that! I look forward to the next book.
