The ghosts haunting Alison Kerby's Jersey Shore guesthouse are sad. Maxie wants to know who murdered her ex-husband, and Paul pines for his still-living almost-fiancee. The only one who isn't missing her ex is Alison-because The Swine just arrived on her doorstep...
In the third installment of Haunted Guesthouse, ghost host Alison Kerby takes on more unfinished business for her supernatural friends. The in-law ghosts at Alison's guesthouse present her a pair of romantic riddles: Maxie is after her ex-husband's killer, while Paul asks Alison to deliver a parting present to his near-fiancée, still among the living. Meanwhile, supernatural sleuth Alison has her own maudlin misadventure when her ex-husband, aka "The Swine", shows up in search of a second chance. Actress Amanda Ronconi captures the cozy quirkiness that informs author E. J. Copperman's playful take on the paranormal. Ronconi reprises her role as haunted heroine Alison, an overworked, underappreciated mother - frequently fatigued, but nevertheless full of love, loyalty, and warmth for her family, both living and dead.

A gentle tale set in a haunted guesthouse
I liked the setting of this story, the return to the familiar guesthouse with its resident ghosts and the gentle detective story told as well.
I liked the way the difference threads tied up at the end, and the way that throw away information from early parts of the story, came to have significant meaning later on. Least interesting? Well some of it was a bit obvious and I did get to a conclusion on certain aspects of the detection before Ms Kirby did.
I've listened to a few of Ms Ronconi's performances and she always makes a good job of them. She is always clear and well paced and makes some distinction between the different characters.
This was just an easy listen, nothing too taxing but perfect for commuting or whilst doing other tasks. A well written story, with good narration. Have already bought the next in the series!
another enjoyable story.
where an errant husband tries to get back in the family.
Alison finds herself looking for a murder as well as paul's girlfriend.
liking the series so far but still having some trouble with Amanda ronconi. can only listen to an hour at a time. used to listen to a lot of American stories but have gone on to british ones now.
