My Review:

Well the blurb for this novel claims it is “An absolutely hilarious, totally entertaining, spookily sexy read that you won’t be able to put down!” – and I totally agree! There are just so many laugh out loud moments as twenty seven year old Melody endeavours to set up her own business as a ghostbuster! She does have a serious advantage in that she can see and communicate with dead people – a good job her best friend and side kick has grown up with her and doesn’t think it strange! Just wait till you discover how she comes to employ Little Art and then goes on to try to solve why the ghosts of three brothers are haunting Scarborough House and gets roped into trying to solve a murder that happened about a hundred years ago.

This is a great story to relax with, highly entertaining, funny and totally different. It has great characters, hints at potential romance and is intertwined with a mystery to be solved and plenty of humorous interactions. It is the start to a new series and it is certainly a series I’ll be looking out for in future.

Many thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for gifting me an ARC of this novel in exchange for my honest review.

Synopsis:

An absolutely hilarious, totally entertaining, spookily sexy read that you won’t be able to put down!

Life’s tricky for Melody Bittersweet.

She’s single, she’s addicted to sugar and super heroes, her family are officially bonkers and … she sees dead people. Is it any wonder no-one’s swiping right on Tinder?

Waking up lonely on her twenty seventh birthday, Melody finally snaps. She can’t carry on basing all of her life decisions on the advice of her magic 8 ball; things have got to change.

Fast forward two months, and she’s now the proud proprietor of her very own ghostbusting agency – kind of like in the movies but without the dodgy white jumpsuits. She’s also flirting with her ex Leo Dark, fraternising with her sexy enemy in alleyways, and she’s somehow ended up with a pug called Lestat.

Life just went from dull to dynamite and it’s showing no sign of slowing up anytime soon. Melody’s been hired to clear Scarborough House of its incumbent ghosts, there’s the small matter of a murder to solve, and then there’s the two very handsome, totally inappropriate men hoping to distract her from the job…

Welcome to Chapelwick, home of the brand new and hilarious Girls Ghostbusting Agency series, where things really do go bump in the night.
