Patrol Log:  1007252016

 Rated it

 When M.J. Holliday and the crew of her cable TV show, Ghoul Getters, venture to the haunted ruins of Dunlow Castle in Ireland, drawn by the legend of hidden treasure, they hope the road will rise up to meet them, that the wind will always be at their backs-and that the resident phantom won't push them off a cliff. If they treasure their lives, M.J. and her ghost busters need to get the drop on the menacing phantom

In this episode of Ghoul Getters, MJ Holiday and team travel to Ireland to face down the most malevolent demon yet and in search of real treasure! Stay tuned for the exciting review by Paranormaly Yours!

MJ was duped into doing an investigation on a haunted castle in Ireland by her producer Gopher with gold bulian. Little did MJ know that the spirit haunting the castle wasn't your ordinary ghost, in fact, it was the mother of all hell broken loose! As soon as the team arrives to the castle, Gopher goes missing, and they have their first encounter with the demon. Everyone gets out by the skin of their teeth and immediately go into recon mode. Naturally the first thing they do is go to the local authorities for help, but to no avail. They have very specific rules about the castle and it's visitors, and that is enter at your own risk. The police will not enter the grounds.....PERIOD. So, left faced with their own devices, MJ and her crew are on the hunt.

Lets start with the cluster fuck that is MJ's team. Heath, who is a medium like MJ, and Gilley her best friend and IT guy. Heath is wonderful, patient, understanding and helpful, Gilley not so much. It amazes me that MJ has been able to not only get jobs ghost busting, but complete them without getting killed due to Gilley's unfortunate narcissistic personalty. He is so thoughtless and self centered that he always manages to make things way harder for everyone else than they should be. Gopher, her producer, he is so greedy and out for numero uno, (just as bad as Gilley at times) that he intentionally puts MJ and Heath in harms way to get the “money shot” for the show. The fact that he is the one to go missing serves as instant karma, and makes me feel somewhat better. Overall it was a poorly planned out trip and investigation, and it wasn't until MJ took charge of the situation that things started happening. Too bad MJ and Gilley didn't have the money themselves to do their own show!

This is the best Paranormal Mystery Series, but their was just something about this case that bugged me enough to only give it 3 Fangs. MJ is a very strong medium, with a heart full of compassion. Her best friend Gilley keeps her real, grounded, and reminds me of her tragic past, where she comes from. Heath is just adorable. I love his character, and role in all this and I hope he takes that step and snatches MJ up before it's too late!

Narrator Review
Eileen Stevens narrates for Ghouls, Ghouls, Ghouls. I have not had the pleasure of listening to Eileen before, so this was a fresh new experience for me. Up until this book, I have been reading them, so I had my own ideals of how each character's voice was. This may have been a mistake, I'm not sure yet. I thought Eileen for MJ was ok, but for Gilley she was way off. During the book, it seemed to me at times that Eileen changed Gilley's voice, it was distinct enough for me to notice, and not like it at all! I thought she did a pretty good job with the Irish accents, much better than she had for the Americans! I'm still on the fence about Eileen for this gig. Like I said, I had envisioned these characters in my head already from the four previous books. I will give her another chance, but for now I give Eileen Stevens 3 Fangs.
