Having a Whaley of a Time

Book Description:
"It's amazing how death can really screw up your life."

So says Shannon MacIntyre, an investigative reporter who finds she can see and talk to ghosts following a near-death experience.

Unwillingly given the duty to speak for the spirits, Shannon puts her new-found talents to the test by solving a mystery at the most haunted house in the United States - the Whaley House in San Diego, California.

My Review: This is a fantastic new series that blends a fictional mystery with a real life haunted location, filled with historical facts and details on resident ghosts. I am addicted to true ghost stories and watch all the Travel Channel shows that feature them, so I was familiar with San Diego's infamous Whaley House. Investigative journalist Shannon MacIntyre is a great character, forced to leave her job behind after a near-death experience, and soon realizes she now has the ability to communicate with ghosts. Accompanied by her new kitty friend Styx, she attempts to discover why the famed tourist location has been closed to visitors, and by the end has a new job that leaves infinite possibilites for this series. I can't wait to see the adventures that await Shannon and Styx!

How cool! Back in my high school days, I used to prowl around the Whaley House with my friends back when I lived in San Diego. That house has always intriqued me, and boy have I heard some stories! This looks like a fun read. :)

Hmm this sounds really cute! I am not normally a mystery person, but I do love ghost stories!
And the Whaley House is a real place? that makes it even more cool.
