Night of the Living Deed – E.J. Copperman

4.5/5 Hilarious Ghosts

On The Back:

Welcome to the first Haunted Guest House mystery-the getaway every reader can afford.

Newly divorced Alison Kerby wants a second chance for herself and her nine-year-old daughter. She’s returned to her hometown on the Jersey Shore to transform a Victorian fixer-upper into a charming-and profitable-guest house. One small problem: the house is haunted, and the two ghosts insist Alison must find out who killed them.

My Thoughts:

I told myself I wouldn’t read another book from the library or buy any more books until I had finished five books from my tbr stack. This is my second one, and I wasn’t expecting much. It hand been sitting on my shelf for forever, and I never read it, but I was pleasantly surprised. This book was great!

I absolutely adored this book. The characters, especially the MC and ghosts, were so real to me I felt like I was seeing them interact with each other. The author also did a wonderful job of making the 9 year old, Melissa, realistic without being annoying.

The mystery was also well-plotted. I really didn’t expect the killer to be who they were and it threw me for a loop.

Why then did you take off a half star? I took it off because of the MC, Allison’s interactions with one of the ghosts, Maxie. Allison was at times cruel to Maxie, and even though they got off to a bad start Maxie tried making things better in various parts of the book.

Overall, however, an enjoyable read. I’ll have to get the next one!
