First Sentence: "Here's some free advice: Never go into business with your best friend."

Ghost hunter M.J Halliday returns for another mad cap adventure. In this installment she and Gilly travel to San Fransisco to star in a new tv show. Everything is going well until the knife appeears. Then all hell breaks loose with a demon on the rampage. Now M.J must defeat the demon and send it back to hell where it came from.

This is a wonderful light hearted series. You will find yourself chuckling at the antics of Gilly and MJ. Most of the humour comes from MJ and Gilly themselves. A few of the scenes had me chuckling. I particularly loved the scene after they encountered the demon and were covering up their encounter with the hotel manager.

I enjoyed the introduction of Heath and Detective MacDonald. Heath compliments MJ very well and they make a good team. Detective MacDonald makes a refreshing change, being open to what MJ does and how she works. Most of the time she encouters skeptics, but MacDonald lets MJ go with it and assist with the investigation.

The series I think is going in an interesting direction that will set it apart from other paranormal detective series. The introduction of the tv show and twist on the whole paranormal tv series is an interesting one. It could either work really well with the series or not work at all. Only time will tell. For this book it worked well.

I had read three post apoclyptic books in a row and while they were good I need something fun and light to read for something different. This book is it. A delightful, fun series that should not be taken seriously. You can knock it over quickly but thats the point, its not supposed to be taxing just silly brain candy fun.
