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?
After reading the first book in this series I was dying to get my hands on the second instalment! This book has a bit of everything and you cannot help but love the characters!
Melody and her gang of ghostbusters are back! And this time they have a haunted castle to deal with! As usual things never go smoothly for Melody and she ends up once again having to put up with her ex Leo Dark and journalist Fletcher Gunn, who she has a love and hate relationship with. To be honest I really wanted to be able to jump between the pages and knock these twos heads together! The are perfect for each other and the chemistry is out of this world!
Starting this book was just like the comfort of meeting up with an old friend! I jumped easily into the story as if Melody and co had never been away, and devoured the story. It really has a bit of everything and I found myself sad in places, and laughing out loud in others; not to mention the hotness as well from Melody and Fletch!
This book also brings back Melody's sidekicks Marina and Artie! They make a great team, each of them bringing something different to the mix. We even see a little bit of a love interest for Artie in this instalment.
I cannot wait to see what happens next for ghost busting agency, and hope to see more of what happens with Artie and Hells Bells as well as hopefully seeing Melody and Fletch coming to their senses! I cannot recommend this book enough for an excelled light hearted read!
