Rachel J Bell

Easy Come, Easy Ghost

I love this series. Audrey and her boyfriend, Detective Kade, are fantastic...and the regulars are here with some new wacky new ladies...Audrey meets her in-laws-to-be and, of course, runs into another new ghost..really more than one....good mystery, good story, humor, and as always, a satisfying read.

Cathy Brown

Life Ghost On

She's done it again! Jane sucks you in to murder, mystery, and mayhem with awesome characters, and this time the story is wrapped up in a wedding veil! Don't miss the wedding of the year!

Lilly

Life Ghost On

Oh where to start!! I have been captivated by this series since book 1, and I was so excited that Audrey and Kade were finally going to have the wedding of their dreams!! Now of course, it wouldn't be normal if there wasn't some excitement and mystery to mix it all up; after all, nothing ever goes as planned. I simply couldn't put this book down, I had to know....will they get their special day? Or will they have to wait to have their wedded bliss? This series is absolutely the best. I can't wait to see what happens next!

Marci Stueven

Easy Come Easy Ghost

Each book makes me fall in love with Audrey more. She’s scrappy, funny, accident-prone, addicted to coffee, and downright wonderful. She's going with Kade to Chicago to meet his parents for the first time. Of course, she sees a ghost, and the parents jump in on the mystery-solving tour. It’s a fun read, and I can’t recommend this book or the series more. If you like a humorous mystery cozy, this one is definitely for you.

Michalle Hunziker

Easy Come, Easy Ghost

I loved this book with its mystery, humor, and a bit of romance. I loved the realistic anxiety Audrey experiences with her upcoming wedding. Her pets are quite amusing. The future in-laws were amazing and so accepting. I really enjoyed this book and the others in this series. I highly recommend this Author and her works.

Sharon

Who Ghost There?

OK, first off, this is the sixth book in the series, and I have to say it’s probably the best so far even if I tend to say that every time. Audrey is her usual adorable, clumsy self and we are introduced to a new character Seb.

Penny Noble

Ghost Detective Series

This is such a fun, amazing, and must-read series! I can't wait for more!

Merry

The Ghost is Clear

I kept thinking I know who the murderer was, but I was completely wrong. Audrey is a great character, and I just love her to death.

Penny Noble

Life Ghost On

If you’ve been following this series, this book gets to the one event we’ve all been waiting for….the wedding! As always, though, Audrey has an adventure and a half to get there! I love this latest installment! It was funny and intriguing and had me surprised and happy at the end. I recommend diving into the series if you haven’t yet.
Life Ghost On is the ninth book in the Ghost Detective series.
I voluntarily received and reviewed an advanced copy of this book.
Final Rating: 5 Stars

Give up the Ghost

I love Audrey! The characters are great. I can't wait to read more and see where these latest developments go in her PI business and personal life.

Angela Firuccia

Wild Ghost Chase

Another amazing book. All of your favorite characters are back to solve another ghostly murder mystery with a side of blackmail thrown in. And spa day with Bandit is the best. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute!

Angela Firuccia

Easy Come Easy Ghost

Airplanes, ghosts, and murder!

Reading this book felt like coming home and reuniting with friends and family. While the base of this book is murder, it was an interesting book, and it made me laugh a lot! Audrey and Kade are just perfect, and it's always fun to read their story.

Sylvie Roy

Ghost Mortem

Loved this first book and hope to be able to read the entire series! Such a fun read. I read it in one sitting.
An original storyline for a change!

Suzanne Lyon

The Ghost is Clear

I love Audrey! And I loved that another ghost was added to the mix... at least for a while. And Audrey's relationship with Kade is barreling ahead. Can't wait for what comes next!

Angela Firuccia

Ghost Detective Series

All the books in this series are absolutely amazing highly recommend them. Brilliant storytelling brilliant characters just brilliant.

Stephanie Horan

Easy Come, Easy Ghost

I loved this book was funny in so many ways. Kade's family are amazing with how they've accepted Audrey and her ways. Looking forward to much more and hopefully more of Kade's family as well. Yet again, another great book.

Steph

Audrey and Kade are back, and I am so excited. Their dynamic is so loving and fun, and I am over the moon that we got to meet Kade’s parents. I was a little bummed that we didn’t get to see much of Seb, Bandit, and Thor, and we didn’t see Ben at all, but again, it was fun to meet Kade’s parents. This latest in the series is full of wild fun, and Audrey is always so capable and gets to the bottom of every murder she encounters. While this mystery isn’t overly difficult, the trip to find the perpetrator is a fun adventure with Sylvia and Dennis. I can’t wait to see what happens at the Bridal Expo in the next book.

Penny Noble

Easy Come Easy Ghost

Audrey is heading to Chicago with Kade to meet her future in-laws. Audrey is just so appealingly relatable. She is clumsy, says the wrong thing, and has a hard time standing up to her family; she is a heroine for us regular folks. These stories are so funny and really different from all the other cozy mysteries. A dead woman on the golf course and her future in-laws are helping with the investigation, what could go wrong? This was the best story yet, and I look forward to more and more of Audrey.

Jodi B

Life Ghost On

Love it! This is my favorite series of Jane's. The ghosts were a hoot and the buddies were all back! The wedding was glorious, and I can't say enough.

Kim Wright

Easy Come Easy Ghost

I loved this book. Audrey and Kade go to meet his parents, and mayhem ensues from the minute they walk in the door. From a dead golfer who wants her murder resolved to the "slightly" illegal activities that the golfer and her friends are up to, to the wedding activities back home that her sister-in-law is trying to ram through. This is a thoroughly funny book with lots of surprises and unexpected twists and turns. I really enjoy this series and always look forward to the next one.

Dawn

A Ghost of a Chance

Every time I read a book in the series, I just fall in love with Audrey all over again. I don’t know why exactly, but this series is one of my favorite cozy paranormal mystery series, and I do know Audrey is one of the reasons why.

Penny Noble

Who Ghost There

This time Audrey is eyeballs deep in ghosts and mayhem. And Thor is on a diet?!? Plus... there's a hunky new neighbor. I think this may be my favorite mystery so far.

Angela Firuccia

I really enjoyed this fun cozy mystery, and I had forgotten how much I love Audrey. Things don’t go to plan when Audrey and her fiancé Kade visit his parents in Chicago as Audrey immediately starts talking to a ghost and outs herself to Kade’s parents as being able to see ghosts. Here starts the whole family wanting in on the action of determining what happened to Joyce. Kade’s father being a retired cop and Kade being a detective means it’s right up their alley. The relationship Audrey had with the ghost Joyce was fun, and the conversations Audrey had with Joyce’s friends, with and without Joyce, were entertaining. I loved how everyone worked together to get to the bottom of it. This story has less of Audrey’s pets Thor and Bandit, but we still get some of their fun banter when they video chat. Really entertaining story.

Bec

Easy Come, Easy Ghost

It's nerve-wracking enough meeting the parents for the first time... throw in a ghost and some kooky senior-agers and mayhem ensues. I love this series... and the video calls with Thor, and Bandit were awesome. Thor is such a drama queen.

Angela Firuccia

Easy Come, Easy Ghost

The clumsy PI and dashing police detective are moving ahead toward walking down the aisle. Meeting his folks- cool, except for the ghosts on the plane.

Getting outed by a ghost in their apartment- unexpected. Having the senior Galloways ready to dip into a murder investigation and having them not bat an eye over her psychic skills? Pricelessly awesome.

Bad guys, crazy actors, bad actors, and an evil acting sister-in-law trying to take over the wedding- maddening. Also, par for the course for Audrey- who is exactly as hilariously awful on a golf course as I had imagined

sweet, sad, and horrific mixed with butt-kicking women seeking justice

Molly

Wild Ghost Chase

Wild Ghost Chase is so fun and hilariously entertaining. I love this series and this book might just be my favourite one yet. I highly recommend it!

Jennifer Wertz

Easy Come, Easy Ghost

It's hard enough for Audrey to meet her future in-laws for the first time without having a ghost appear and her start talking to it. But her in-laws are great, and they go looking for the body of the ghost and then get involved in solving her murder. Audrey is her usual clumsy self, and, as usual, the ghost is very little help. Great characters, so laugh-aloud moments, and a well-plotted mystery.

Michelle C

A Ghost of a Chance

A Ghost of a Chance is a fantastic cozy mystery book. This book is entertaining and humorous. It is full of suspense and mystery. I love the quirky characters.

Jennifer Wertz

Easy Come, Easy Ghost

Great addition to the series as we have Audrey and Kade flying off to spend time with Kade's parents, who have ended their great Australia adventure and moved into a retirement community in Chicago. Her beloved pets are being taken care of by her neighbor, Seb, and he is also working on planning the wedding. Things start off on a ghoulish note when Audrey discovers there are at least a dozen ghosts on the flight, all injured in some way, with some missing entire limbs. As if flying wasn't bad enough. Ugh. She also immediately "comes out" to her future in-laws when she mistakes a ghost for another family member and tries to shake her hand. Double ugh. But apparently, Kade's parents are more interested in finding the body than they are in why it is she can interact with ghosts. Wow, that was unexpected. Huh.

I was given an advanced copy of this book by the author. My review is voluntary.

VaWineLover

Here Ghost Nothing

This is the fifth book in this series, and it’s still going strong! I love Audrey's relationship with Galloway; he is just so accepting of her and her flaws, and he believes her about seeing ghosts.

Penny Noble

Life Ghost on

Great book. I always love reading about Audrey and company b,ut I think I like this one the most. Jane has a way of making murder into something that is not dark. A good cozy mystery with a beautiful ending.

Sheila M.

Wild Ghost Chase

Another wonderful book in this awesome series.
Love to read what is going on with Audrey and Kade.
Jane Hinchey is an amazing Author and I highly recommend reading any or all of her awesome books...Loved reading this one.

Becky Brown

Life Ghost On

Wedding preparations for Kade and Audrey are filled with as much critter chaos, ghostly drama and mayhem, mystifying murder case-related details and dangers, clumsiness, and absolutely fabulous interludes with the help from the likes of Seb and some fabulous drag queens festive, frantic, and perfectly imperfect as they work to carry out their I Dos amid the chaos Funny, sometimes frightening, sometimes insightful, sometimes poignant and sweet, and oh so typical for Audrey and Kade - another shot to the funny bone and ALL the tenderest parts - and I do mean ALL the tenderest parts a perfect read to bring the funny and humor and comic relief perspective to anyone who ever suffered through drama and angst loaded wedding planning.

Molly

I LOVE YOUR BOOKS!!! The Ghost Detective series has almost ruined me for other ghost mysteries! They are laugh out loud mysteries. I have preordered #3

DeeDee Harrison

Give up the Ghost

Audrey is just so funny and entertaining without being a mockery. I love the interactions between her and Galloway, or Captain Cowboy Hot Pants.

Penny Noble

The Ghost is Clear

I love The Ghost is Clear! This is a fun and engaging mystery. I love the quirky characters. This book is entertaining, humorous, mysterious, and action-packed.

Jennifer Wertz

A Ghost of a Chance

I love this series! Audrey is one of my favorite PI's in the business. This book was especially fun with the addition of a raccoon. And of course, all my favorite characters were also back!

Angela Firuccia

The Ghost Is Clear

I just love reading this series. Each one is unique.
Jane Hinchey is such an amazing author. I highly recommend reading any or all of her books. I love the character of Audrey. Can't wait to read more in this series of books...

Becky Brown

Easy Come, Easy Ghost

I really enjoy this series. The author manages to bypass just about every aspect of a cozy mystery that bugs me. The pacing of the story pleases me; I do not feel as if a bunch of material is added just to "build suspense" or simply pad the narrative. Audrey and Kade are just ever so appealing. I like that there is not an abundance of inter-family angst; there is just a little bit of conflict. When I like a character as much as I like Audrey, it would upset me to see people being mean to her. Also ... Thor and Bandit and those covers!!

Mathpup

Wild Ghost Chase

I loved all the books… just wondering when the next book in ghost detective is coming out?

Gerene

Easy Come Easy Ghost

OMG, I couldn't put it down! Love the family and how they just love Audrey. I can't wait for more.

Steph

Another fun and action-packed cozy mystery! I love this series and this latest book didn’t disappoint. I enjoyed Audrey’s adventure as she goes to meet the future in-laws. It’s a fun read a,nd I look forward to the next book!

Kanyon K.

Ghost Mortem

This book is fun and engaging. The characters are great. Audrey is interesting and relatable. This book is full of humor and adventure. The mystery has so many twists and turns to keep you guessing.

Jennifer Wertz

Easy Come, Easy Ghost

Meeting the in-laws for the first time makes anyone nervous, and Audrey was in for a surprise she hadn't seen coming. Bonus with the in-law! I found the adventures of the elderly trio very entertaining, and how they had been getting away with it is really a mystery. Poor Audrey suddenly found herself with too much on her plate with a wedding and the mystery she felt compelled to solve. Even something was worrying the groom. I love these cozy mysteries where the protagonist is not only a ghost whisperer, but she has to deal with her own flaws and her family's inquisition. The 'in the secret' group seems to grow. And I can't leave behind the cute pets that make me smile every time they appear. A story with funny situations, curious characters, many almost, almost, culprits, and a lot of clues to follow.

Dora Zeno

Give Up the Ghost

I loved Give Up the Ghost. This book is so fun and interesting. The characters are relatable and interesting. I really enjoyed the character interactions and humorous conversations. The mystery is well-developed and has many twists to keep you guessing. Give Up the Ghost is a wonderful book.

Jennifer Wertz

Ghost Mortem

This was a great start to a great new adventure. Audrey is very relatable. I laughed several times and felt like I was in that world. I can't wait for more and to see Audrey's journey into becoming a PI!
