What a fun read this was, and its super cheap! Take a chance on this book!! Check out my review below.
She’s single, 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 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.
Melody Bittersweet And The Girls’ Ghostbusting Agency was one heck of a surprise gem. It was such a feel good book, full of humour and fun. There was no angst or grit, just a loveable cast of characters, a fantastic plotline, and wonderful and witty narration and dialogue. It really was the perfect read.
I took a chance on this one; it’s not something I would usually read, but the description had me intrigued enough to give it a go, and I am so glad that I did!! I adore each and every one of the characters in this book, from Melody and her team of rooky ghostbusters (where do I sign up??), to her kooky family of ghost-whisperers (adopt me??), to Leo and Fletch (swoooon), to Lestat the one-eared Pug (who can hear perfectly well), and finally, to the ghosts of Scarborough House. They each were a fantastic addition to the story.
This isn’t your typical Paranormal book. It was a comedy filled with lots of laughs and good times, all while the fun-loving main character and her friends try to solve an age-old murder to finally free a family of ghosts from their home. As I’ve mentioned a few times now, this book was hilarious, but for a few chapters towards the end, it was surprisingly emotional, even going so far as managing to pull a few pesky tears from my eyes, and I am *not* a crier!
Without a doubt, I would recommend this book, and I cannot wait to catch up with Melody and the gang for her next adventure which is due out in October.
