Summary

Northelm Boarding School on Lake Placid has the worst bully of all - a demon by the name of Hatchet Jack. M.J. Holliday, along with her partners Gilley and the handsome Dr. Steven Sable, are ready to send him back to the portal from whence he came. The school's summer construction, an uncooperative dean, and the very tempting Dr. Delicious are all trying to distract M.J. from her ghost hunting. But with a demonic disturbance as great as Hatchet Jack, she must focus and show no mercy to send him to detention for an eternity - in hell.

Continuing to be a winner series

To me this second book is just as fun to listen to as the first one. I really like the main characters and the supporting characters. I love the comic relief added to the book by the character of Gilley and I like the kindness of the character of the doctor. Not to mention that ghost stories just really entertain me.

it was a good book

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

it was something to listen to when doing my home work.

What three words best describe Eileen Stevens’s performance?

can't stop reading.

Could you see Demons are a Ghoul's Best Friend being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

if it was for lifetime movie then yes i can see it.

I really liked the characters so much more........

After the first book, I knew I would read another. I definately enjoyed this story more. I felt like I already knew everyone a little, and got to get more details in this story.

I really like Gil's style. He doesn't try to be something he is not, and is true to how he feels. I Love MJ's ability to push thru the fear, because she knows that only she can really handle the details of getting rid of the bad spooks in the end. Everyone else helps, but she is the one with the power.

The story line on this mystery was also better. I really did like the twist and turns. I had figured some of it out about 1/2 way thru, but I did enjoy the author's way of getting the reader to the truth of the matter.

All in all, I really enjoyed it, and will go on to read the third book in the near future.

Spooky Story!

This series is a scary step up from the cozy paranormals I am used to. I like them and they do make chills. Love MJ’s courage and Gilly’s sweetness and snark.

Narrator is fine.

Would you listen to Demons are a Ghoul's Best Friend again? Why?

Yes, because it's an easy listen and is funny

Who was your favorite character and why?

Gil. He's a Ghost Buster, who's extremely afraid of Ghosts.

What about Eileen Stevens’s performance did you like?

I really don't know why anyone complains about her. Everyone's ears are different, like opinions blah, blah, blah. You can sample the narrators voice before you use a credit.
I think she was very entertaining. Her timing was better than quite a few narrators. Her voice is strong and clear.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

M. J. Is steady and a brave heroine. Gil is very funny. Stephen's use of colloquialls is way too funny. I'm bilingual although I was born on the Mainland, I lived in a Latin American country for a few years and when I came back to the Mainland, I had the same problems. I like how Victoria throws them in there and here. M. J. and Gil have to figure it out without laughing.

Any additional comments?

A very entertaining series and have already bought 4 more books.

What a Great Stort

You are completely surprised by the ending. The characters are each unique and how the story plays out in this ghost busting book keeps your interest peaked. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
