Themes: Bed-And-Breakfast- Gothic style, Possibly Haunted, Outdated and Spooky Beachfront Setting (felt a tad off compared to the aesthetic, but I understand why this was done) Small Renovations- Hiring contractors, things going wrong with the house, these added elements kept the story moving along Paranormal Occurrences- blended believers and debunkers nicely! The scenes were pretty good, especially the BIG paranormal scene. :) Murder Mystery- classic cozy mystery but this one had a more real feel to it. Investigations- Small town sheriff and police work (the usual this would never happen, laid back police work) + classic cozy DIY sleuth detective work. A Lighthouse- Possibly Haunted? Canine for doggy lovers!- Boo, the black dog. Cute. Feisty. Loved him. Food/Cooking- I craved the hot chocolate and pancakes that were described. The food sounded so good I could smell breakfast in the air which made my stomach gurgle with hunger! Well done! This was a cute and fun cozy. I was unsure who to point fingers at the majority of the mystery. I loved all the mysterious elements including ghost hunting. The romance was the equivalency of a crush, lightly touched on, it kept it kind and sweet. I downloaded this e-book while it was free on Amazon because the cover was super cute and I thought it would make for a perfect lead into a cozy and warm Halloween. I was under no obligation to write a review, my honest opinion is freely given. Note for author/editor: The Kindle E-Book edition had quite a few typos that need correction yet. As far as the other 3 books in the series go, I plan on checking them out next Halloween when they are all polished up! [11/4/20- Ghostly Grounds #1 is still available for free download on Amazon, if you are interested in checking it out.]

    More like 3.5 but I listened on audio and really liked the narration. Very cute and easy listening. Good escape without a lot of need to pay attention to details. It was just what I wanted for a short walk or to listen to while doing chores. I will def check out the series. I listened on my libray app...Hoopla. It was worth the risk since it was free. I just discovered today that it is free on kindle. If you need a light cozy mystery...especially for fall, I recommend it!

    The Ghostly Grounds - Book 1 was not very enjoyable for me to read. It can be classified as a beach read or a cozy murder mystery; and those genres are really not for me. I find the simple-mindedness of the characters, the barely there plot points, and the lazy tropey writing to be a miserable experience of reading. This book is really no different.

I actually thought it would be better than I expected, but it was worse than all the other books in this genre that I've read. The writing was mediocre and rife with stereotypes and tropes. The characters were not fully fleshed out, and the scenes were repetitive. The horror side of the story was done pretty well I guess, but I'm quite easily spooked so.. The crux of the story, the survival of the bed-and-breakfast was done so poorly I felt so confused as to why the author had taken the route she had. The plot made no sense, and the foundation for the rest of the series also made no sense to me. The main character is quite foolish and immature for her age. The plot development was fast and not well-written. There were quite a few plot-holes and just the direction the story took was so left-field that I felt like finishing this book as fast I could. It was a quick book on ghosts and a murder mystery and I really had expected more from it, but I was left disappointed and quite sure that I would not be reading the rest of the books in the series. 2 stars - one for the dog, Boo, who was adorable and easily the star of the book. And the other star in the rating is for the story idea. It could have been an amazing book in a different author's hands no doubt. This book had a lot of potential.. sadly it just didn't pan out the way it could have.

    An enjoyable cozy mystery about Marie, an almost 40-year-old woman. She is having a tough time in her life and then her Aunt dies leaving her an old gothic mansion. Deciding to start fresh, Marie sets about fixing up the old house as a B&B. When a ghost hunter stays with her and then his rival shows up, life at the B&B becomes very complicated. Murder, ghosts, lies and a dog named Boo. This book was fun with some interesting twists.

    I really enjoyed this book. It was very entertaining. I just loved all the characters especially the really smart dog. Ghost and murder mystery is always a hit. No actually physical violence or graphic sexual content. Great plot and well written with no foul language. It did have me a little confused that Marie would take the blame for a mistake that she herself had no part in. That just didn't make any sense to me. But still I feel it's a hit. I recommend it for all ages. I received an advance I really enjoyed this book. It was very entertaining. I just loved all the characters especially the really smart dog.

    This book is thoroughly enjoyable. The plot moves along at a good pace with plenty of red herrings and twists. The characters are mostly people I would like to meet. The setting is rich with just enough detail. I immediately bought the next book in the series.

    A paranormal mystery that isn’t…or is it? What is Boo up to? I enjoyed this lighthearted paranormal cozy start to a series. It was a Hoopla Bonus Borrow or I might not have grabbed it. But now I plan to read the whole series.

    I wanted to get one more Halloween-themed book in before October ended. I found this one free from an ebook email list and I thought it would be a fun one to wrap up all the spooky ones I read previously. Well...it was...hmmm...okay? I teetered between 1 and 2 stars because there are decent books I give 2 stars and I’m not sure I’d put this at decent...but it’s not awful.

    Took me awhile to finish this, and overall it was a cute book, but I had issues with it. The murder didn't happen until 2/3 of the way through the book and then the "investigation" was practically non-existent and in the end, the culprit was caught but the MC did very little to bring that about. Instead of being a cozy mystery, this felt like it was really just a long-winded and unfocused introduction to the setting and the characters. I'll give the second book a try to see if the story is tight Took me awhile to finish this, and overall it was a cute book, but I had issues with it.

    Very good When Marie Fortune decides to start a B&B in the old house her Aunt left her there is never a dull moment. Ghosts, murder, romance and new friendships make for a good read.

    I love a great ghost story with a manor bequeathed to a great niece whose eccentric aunt not only leaves her the house, but something else, too! This book was delightful to read, very believable and throughout, I rooted for the heroine, Marie, to make a successful go of her Bed and Breakfast in Maine.

    I like the characters, and it was a fun read. But the typos really took me out of it, and I'm usually generous about that type of thing. It was also very slow to get into. I thought there would be more paranormal mystery. But it seems like it won't play a major role until the second book. The mystery was extremely obvious, and I knew immediately who the killer was.

Arriving at the aunt's funeral, she meets the lawyer who tells her the aunt left her the house - and a dog, she discovers when she goes to the house. She decides to turn it into a bed and breakfast, which is something she has always wanted to do. She connects with a few friends in the town from when she used to spend summers with her aunt. A guy checks into the bed and breakfast, who is doing some ghost hunting at a nearby lighthouse. He decides to shoot some footage around the house and gets some spooky film of a ghost. He posts it on twitter without telling her. Lots of people begin to call for reservations, but there is a problem -he has made a mistake in his film and checking. So, there is a real challenge in trying to make the B&B pay, especially since a guy who is always disproving ghost evidence comes to stay and disprove the video. It gets really complicated, when there is an accident.... I did really enjoy the story line and Marie is a determined person. She had let herself be talked out of her dream of running a B&B, but is going for it now.

She makes her way to Maine to where she frequented summers as a child with her aunt. What happened next through her for a loop. Her great aunt left her her house. What would Marie do with it? Then the idea hit her. Her pipedreams of owning her own bed and breakfast suddenly didn't seem so far fetched. On a whim, Marie takes the good fortune and cuts all her ties back in Boston to start her new path in life. As Marie gets to work on renovations and becoming a new business owner, she prepares herself for the expected hiccups along the way. What she doesn't prepare for, is to discover the house is haunted. When an unexpected death occurs and things start to get hairy for the B&B, Marie wonders if she will be able to get through it all and keep her dream alive or if everything she's worked so hard for and made sacrifices for will all come crashing down. I stumbled across this book on my Hoopla app and I'm very happy I did! A new cozy mystery series to dive into and so far I love it. This was a fairly short book and I burned through it fairly quickly. It was an easy and fun read. I really loved the narrator for this one as well. I'm pretty excited for this series. I thoroughly enjoyed the first book. I rate this one ⭐⭐⭐⭐.

Only when paranormal investigator Brendan arrives does she start to question the possibility of supernatural guests. Soon enough, Marie finds her life has become quite interesting, to say the least. This is a quick and fun read. Boo has super canine abilities and added to the fun factor for me. Add that with ghosts, and I’ll call it a winner!

    This is a cozy mystery set in a small town in Maine. Unique to the genre is the setting, which is a possibly haunted house.

I found it hard to stay engaged with the book because of all the mistakes. The book also felt like it was probably tailored to a very specific audience that just isn't me. I read this book because I have a goal for this year to read a certain number of books and this was free. I won't be continuing on and paying good money for the second in this series.
