Haunted Hijinks An Agnes Barton Paranormal Mystery, Book 1

(2 customer reviews)


Ever since Agnes’ car accident, things have changed drastically for her. When she wakes up in the hospital, not only is her son Stuart there, who she hasn’t seen in years, but a ghostly apparition! Instead of getting ready for the loony bin, Agnes and Eleanor help ready the Butler Mansion for a grand opening as a bed and breakfast on Halloween, except they find the body of Katherine Clark. It’s game on, as usual, for Agnes, except she now has a new partner, one who has remained silent and is—well—a ghost. Agnes now struggles to keep her wits, keeping her ghostly companion a secret from Eleanor, not such an easy feat since Eleanor is sharp as a tack. Not only that, but where has Stuart been all of these years and what is he up to?

    I enjoyed this fun quirky mystery. I have read a few of Madison Johns books and liked the characters in them so when I saw she had a new series with the same characters but with an added twist I thought I would give it ago. Glad I did because it was fun. I liked the addition of the ghost and the explanation of why Agnes could suddenly see ghosts and I thought it was cleverly woven in with the currant case as well. The mystery was interesting and the book just a fun light hearted mystery that you can get lost in for a few hours.
    Agnes was caught up in a car accident and now she can see ghosts or more correctly a certain ghost has attached herself to Agnes and is following her around.. Fearing everybody would think her mad Agnes hasn’t told anyone not even her best friend and partner in crime Eleanor. This would be okay but there latest case has them staying in a haunted house just after a murder has been committed. The dead lady isn’t who they thought she was and the more questions they ask the more Agnes wishes her ghost friend would talk to her because solving the mystery around her might just help solve the murder. There is also the pressure of getting the manor ready for its first guests as a B&B, a cleaning crew that wont work and a son that is up to something. Not to mention there friends missing money, secret passageways and attempted kidnapping and it is not even Halloween yet.
    I liked the use of the special effects for the ghost but not so sure of the voices for the characters, she tried to make them sound elderly but it just sounded to deep or gruff.

    I found this book to be extremely entertaining and humorous. Agnes and Eleanor set out to solve the mystery of the dead body that they’ve discovered only to end up in the middle of several other mysteries. I don’t want to give away to much but if you love mysteries and humor this book is for you. Angel Clark does an awesome job narrating this story keeping it upbeat and light hearted. I received this book from Audiobooks Unleashed and this is my honest unbiased review.
