ROCCO's favorite January cozy!

As many of you know, I am also a reviewer for Night Owl digital magazine.  I review the cozies, and even though I love all of them, I usually have one or two favorites.

One of my Januaryfavorites is by our good friend Victoria Laurie:  A GHOUL'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER.

The plot:M.J., Heath, and Gilley, are back home in Boston, where their new film is sure to be a monster hit!  To promote the film, the studio is sponsoring a special exhibit of supernatural artifacts at a local museum. Unfortunately, Gilley—whose mind is engaged with wedding plans—gets talked into donating to the exhibit the very dagger that keeps the dangerous ghost Oruç and his pet demon locked down in the lower realms. Before M.J. can recover the bewitched blade, there’s a murder and a heist at the museum, and the dagger is stolen.

Now Oruç is coming for M.J. and her crew, and he's bringing with him some fiendish friends from M.J.’s haunted past. She, Gilley, and Heath are certain to be in for a devil of a time. M.J. may even need to recruit a certain skeptical Boston detective to help stop the paranormal party crashers from turning Gilley’s wedding bells to funeral knells. . . .

This is the last book in Laurie's Ghosthunter series, and we have to say, what a way to go!  This book has everything, and it is a fitting tribute to Laurie' characters.  We sincerely hope that Laurie has other cozies up her sleeve but if not, her Abby Cooper Psychic Eye series is still going strong!  and next week...I interview author Barbara Ross!


  1. I had missed the info that this is the last in the series. I have enjoyed it, and already am a fan of Abby Cooper too! Hope she'll have something else good up next!

  2. This is a 'new to me' book. I'm very intrigued. Thanks for highlighting this book.
