Publisher's Summary

There's always fun to be had on a ghoul's night out. By day, Larue Donavan is a down-to-earth bookstore owner. But by night, she's a world-renowned psychic investigator dedicated to helping lost spirits find peace. Dead people won't leave her alone and Abraham Lincoln thinks he's in charge of her lovelife. Larue can handle ghosts and undead presidents. It's the living who drive her crazy. When Callahan Weiss moves to town, the handsome newcomer opens a coffee shop right next door. She's smitten from the start, but she's not the only one - the boutique owner across the street has her eye on Callahan too, and uses witchcraft to fight dirty. When Callahan gets hit by a love spell, Larue will need more than a little help from her ghoul-friends to save the day.

    "Missed a beat"

    Fun little story. All the elements were there, but they didn't quite gel. Maybe the writing will improve for the latter books.

    "Worse book I have ever picked up!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book was so irritating with all the self doubt verbiage from the main character of the book. Would never recommend this book,

    "Sweet story"

    A sweet story about Laroue, a young woman with an unusual gift, she sees dead people and helps them cross over. Humour, mystery, some suspense and sleuthing mixed with some light romance makes this an enjoyable story. Listening to it narrated by Elisabeth Klett made it even more so. Perfect voice for this. Loved Ms. Klett's versatile voice, expressive and right pitch for each character. Loved the dynamics between Laroue and Mindy, the wild, and somewhat reckless best friend. And the ghosts that surround her are an interesting mix. The ending is hinting at more books to come, I will be checking them out.

    "Interesting read"

    This was a very interesting read. I would also like to say it highlights my point about finding the right narrator for the audiobook. This book has some dialogue that can seem juvenile if not presented properly. The narration was performed in a mature manner and helped elevate the book. I read another series with similar dialogue but with a very youthful narrator, that was unsuccessful all around. This is why it is crucial to have the right combination of story and read for the audio. It really can make it or break it.

    I generally enjoyed the concept, I am usually a sucker for the ghost themes. This one has some fun turns, President Lincoln is a real hoot! I was also intrigued by the other spirits she encounters. I wish more of the book were about the ghost hunting and helping, less about the moping around because of a guy.

    Larue is a great character, most of the time. She does see a bit immature at times. I love her banter with her BFF Mindy, although they are a little slow on the uptake. I would have loved to see more hi-jinks from them. Mostly it was a case of tell about events after rather than showing them while they are happening.

    The whole book is from Larue's POV, which limits things a bit. I under stand why we can not get some of the other characters, I just wish there were more narrative insights.

    This is a pretty light romance, and bedroom free, totally clean. I expect there will be more romance in the next book, this one was mostly angst.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Elizabeth Klett, who does a fantastic job. She has a great tone that transcends the youthful dialogue. Had she not kept the maturity in her read, this could have been a very different review. Her pace is terrific, just swift enough to keep the story moving when it lagged. Her voices were great, she didn't try to butch it up for the men but she did give them a masculine touch. I will definitely be looking for more of her reads!

    Overall, this was a good read and entertaining. The beginning is engaging, the middle lags, and then the end kind of leave you hanging. Not a huge cliff hanger, but definitely not resolved.

    Disclosure - I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts, opinions and ratings are my own.

    Story
    "After you read the summary you can skip the book"
    Has Me and My Ghoulfriends turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I don't know why this book was in this genre in the first place. Seemed too immature to be anything other than an teen book.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    This book made me sad for women, if anything depicted in this book is remotely similar to how women think and behave. The plot was so thin i could barely stand it. I was pissed with myself for even being curious enough to buy it.

    "Different and Entertaining!"
    Would you listen to Me and My Ghoulfriends again? Why?

    This book has a fun twist to a "who done it" story about murder during a time when vampires, witches and other ghouls are part of regular society which gives it a great new twist. I really enjoyed this one.


    What about Elizabeth Klett’s performance did you like?

    Elizabeth Klett does an outstanding job with the narration. She brings each character to life by distinguish each one with it's own style and voice. Very easy to follow.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a fun and easy read.

    Story
    "Fun Paranormal Mystery"
    Where does Me and My Ghoulfriends rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I enjoyed this audiobook a lot. I thought the characters, minus Breanna, were very likeable. This was a fun listen for me. It was light and easy to listen to. It also had a different take on the paranormal theme which was good. I'd say this ranks as a book that I enjoyed listening to.


    What other book might you compare Me and My Ghoulfriends to and why?

    I don't know what other books I would compare this to. It had a "Ghost Whisperer" feel to it that I liked. I loved the ghosts in this book, especially Abe.


    Which character – as performed by Elizabeth Klett – was your favorite?

    My favorite character performed by Elizabeth Klett was Larue. I thought Elizabeth Klett did a wonderful job with the entire book. Her performance was perfect. She's a very good voice actor and I hope to hear more from her in the future.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were no big moving moments in this book. It was just good plain fun and kept my interest the whole time. I look forward to more from this author in the future as well as the narrator. Both were good.


    Any additional comments?

    I received this audiobook foc in exchange for an unbiased review.
