This book was full of paranormal events. The Ghost Huntress team winds up investigating some pretty creepy stuff. There will not be a boring narration in this book. Personally I have always had a closet fear of chucky and the doll in this book has a similar creep factor to my childhood fear. Dolls are just creepy in general to me though.

Kendall and Patrick continue to make a cute couple. Although, I am waiting for the shoe to fall with them. Reading each other's thoughts and feelings will not a

well i've officially become bored with the ghost huntress series. i'm not really sure why but i just can't bond with the main character kendall and find all the supporting characters kind of weak. the book even got a bit god-heavy with an entire chapter dedicated to an episcopalian (i think) mass kendall attends and she further annoys us all by carrying on about her newfound faith in her psychic abilities that she received from "her Creator" the lord jesus christ yadda yadda amen and no-thank-yo ...more

The history, ficional or otherwise, Marley Gibson jammed into this book has blown my mind - and has even gone as far as scaring hell and four dollars out of me at one point or another.

Ghost Huntress: The Discovery is a roller coaster in all aspects, may it be with Kendall's ghost hunting, love life or family affairs. And Marley Gibson changed up the case this time around for Kendall and her gang from the usual spirit to a much more unexpected and unusual, though all-around creepy, menace.

I like the series, but i don't know about this case.

I'm kinda hooked at first because it reminds me of ghost hunt series House of Doll, and as the case was progressing it really gets good but sadly when they are on the actual scene/place where it all started well it sort of kinda let down unlike the first cases that really gets intense when they face the entity but nonetheless i still love the series.

First read in 2013, reread in 2016.
This was an interesting book, bringing Kendall and her friends back together in the South, and dragging her boyfriend into Georgia as well. I liked the way that the author used the story to tie into the Underground Railroad, a historical pathway to freedom that is both mythical and real.

One of the things I don’t like about the story is that the characters, while realistic, do not reflect the historical background of the community. There were black slaves, India

This latest installment of the Ghost Huntress brought new heights of creepy to this fun and fabulous read. Kendall has just returned from a seminar by a world famous television ghost hunter and is armed with a few new methods. Her ex and his twin have left the area leaving an opening for a photographer and a boyfriend. She meets Patrick at the retreat and quickly falls in love with him. It also doesn't hurt that they can communicate telepathically. She is also searching for her birth father and ...more
