Simple Description:
M.J. isn't too pleased with Gillie when he tells her they are headed to San Francisco, in a couple of hours, to be on a tv show.  Things get worse when they arrive and meet the other guests, two of which are as fake as can be.  However the 4th guest, Heath, is a true medium.  Their stay at The Duke, the most Haunted hotel in San Francisco, starts off with a bang, with a woman who appears to have jumped to her death but her ghosts lets M.J. know that wasn't the case.

Things go from bad to worse when a dagger is placed on the table for M.J. and Heath to investigate and the evil inside it actually physically hurts the two mediums.

Soon M.J. and Heath are trying to deal with one nasty demon and one nasty murderer.

Now what you really want to thoughts:
I loved it.  I love this series.  It's just a fun cozy mystery.  If you like reading paranormal mysteries, I think you'll enjoy this one.  M.J. is hard on Gillie sometimes, but Gillie sometimes deserves it.  Either way, you can't help loving both of them.  This is definitely a series I would consider a must read for cozy mystery fans or paranormal mystery fans in general.

This book is part of my collection and was either bought or given to me.

This series has always reminded me too much of Scooby-Doo.

Bella - I know! #4 is out now and I can't wait to get a copy (of course I'll probably wait to read it for some reason..but still)

Berumdaonion - it's a lot of fun, the perfect type of cozy for me.

StepfordMom - lol! Now that you mention it, it does! I was a huge scooby fan when I was little though, maybe that's why I like this series so much.
