My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Welcome to Chapelwick, a leafy English town in the hills of Shropshire, where chocolate pecan cookies come with a helping of sabotage.
Maplemead Castle is crawling with ghosts, and the new owners need them gone. When Melody Bittersweet and the Girls’ Ghostbusting Agency arrive on scene, they quickly identify the troublemakers swinging from the chandeliers… literally.
A century ago, stunning trapeze artist Britannia Lovell plunged to her death, and has done every night since. But did she really just fall, or was there something more to her demise?
Forced to work with Leo Dark, her scoundrel ex, and infuriating, irresistible reporter Fletcher Gunn, Melody’s investigative powers are under strain (i.e. lost in a pink mist of lust and confusion). She needs her team on top form, but best friend Marina’s cake pipeline goes AWOL, assistant Artie’s distracted by a giant sausage roll, and the pug is scared witless by a lion.
Somewhere, hidden in the castle, is a heart-breaking secret, but what will it take to find it? And is there a chance it could set Britannia free, or is she doomed to repeat her last fateful act forever?
An utterly hilarious, gripping, spooktastic read for fans of HY Hanna, MC Beaton, Gina LaManna and Jana DeLeon.
Let's see I need to write this review as a normal book blogger and not a crazy Melody Bittersweet fan. Seriously, I do wonder how Kitty French manages to write this book without sitting and laughing at the dialog herself, or perhaps she does break down it laughter, who knows? All, I know is that this book is just as fun as the first book in the series!
Melody Bittersweet and the Girls' GhostbustingGhostbusting Agency is back to fight ghosts, thou fight them is the wrong word, rather trying to figure out their tragic past so that they can move on. In this book, Melody, Marina, and Artie have to try to figure out what happened all those years ago when trapeze artist Britannia Lovell plunged to her death. Was it really an accident? Besides this, she also has to deal with her ex Leo Dark who also is there, but Leo does seem to have a hard time separating work from pleasure, and work time romance is a bit hard when one of you are dead. Then, there is journalist Fletcher Gunn, the non-believer when it comes to ghosts, who is there to follow Melody for a reportage. He may not believe that she sees ghosts, but that doesn't stop them from getting a bit carried away when they are alone together. Then, there is the ghost lion...
Mystery of Maplemead Castle is a fabulous book. I loved the first book, but darn it, I think this one is even better. But, I think that's because of all the Fletcher and Melody action all through the book. Yes, the book is so much more than just Fletcher and Melody making out, but Leo has a tendency do stumble over them when they are..busy, and that often leads to hilarious moments. Seriously, the book has so many hilarious moments, witty dialog that I'm sitting here just smiling when I think of some of them. It's such a wonderful book, and I can't wait for the next to come out!
