Summary

In an all-new novella in E.J. Copperman’s “funny, charming, and thoroughly enjoyable” (Spinetingler Magazine) series, the storm of the century bears down on the haunted guesthouse, and stirs up a gale of memories for a troubled ghost.
Haunted guesthouse owner Alison Kerby may have only recently discovered her ability to communicate with ghosts, but for her mother Loretta, it’s been a lifelong gift. As Alison prepares her Jersey Shore guesthouse for what promises to be a huge storm, Loretta helps out by tackling a different issue when the winds blow in an unexpected visitor: the ghost of Sgt. Robert Elliot. His request? Help him find the POW bracelet from the Vietnam War that bears his name. But no sooner does Elliot make his appeal than he suddenly disappears, cutting off contact, and leaving Loretta to wonder...why here? Why now? And why the vanishing act?
The answers begin to materialize when Alison’s lone remaining guest shows up unwittingly holding a clue to the case - on his wrist. A coincidence? Hardly. And Loretta has good reason to believe that the sergeant’s spirit has a secret he’s yet to share. Something he’s been holding on to for more than forty years. Something he’s dying to put to rest.

Heavy subject. Lightly handled.

Once I got used to the slow delivery of Loretta's way of speaking, this was a good listen. Copperman made a good decision deciding to make this a separate short story, instead of a side story in a full Guesthouse novel. Very enjoyable.

Your beloved series with a twist

The change of narrator makes for a refreshing little novella in an arc I have enjoyed thoroughly so far. The reader does a great job of creating a different voice for Loretta. The plot is uncomplicated but with some very entertaining bits.

Quick-witted and entertaining

What made the experience of listening to An Open Spook the most enjoyable?

Because I have listened to many others of the same author and know what to expect.

What other book might you compare An Open Spook to and why?

Others by E.J. Cooperman are similar in theme and style.

What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

I always enjoy her narration. It's engaging because she brings out each character's personality, so you always know who's speaking.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, and I pretty much did because it was fairly short.

Any additional comments?

I will keep purchasing these books because I love the characters!
