Life’s tough for Melody Bittersweet.
She’s single, addicted to sugar and super heroes, her family are officially bonkers, and she sees dead people. Is it any wonder no-one’s swiping right on Tinder?
Waking up lonely on her twenty seventh birthday, Melody finally snaps. She can’t carry on basing all of her life decisions on the advice of her magic 8 ball; things have got to change.
Fast forward two months, and she’s now the proud proprietor of her very own ghostbusting agency – kind of like in the movies but without the dodgy white jumpsuits. She’s also flirting with her ex Leo Dark, fraternising with her enemy in alleyways, and she’s somehow ended up with a pug called Lestat.
Life just went from dull to dynamite and it’s showing no sign of slowing up anytime soon. Melody’s been hired to clear Scarborough House of its incumbent ghosts, there’s the small matter of a murder to solve, and then there’s the two very handsome, totally inappropriate men hoping to distract her from the job…
Welcome to Chapelwick, home of the brand new and hilarious Girls Ghostbusting Agency series, where things really do go bump in the night.
As soon as I saw the cover and read the description for this novel I knew I had to read it.
I loved the film Ghostbusters so had a feeling I was going to enjoy this novel, and I did.
Melody and the other female relations in her family seem to have a genetic gift that gets past down of being able to see ghosts.
I think most of us would think it’s pretty awesome to be able to see dead people but not for Melody. I suppose seeing them at inappropriate times must take it’s toll, that’s why she decides to set up her own company to get rid of them and send the spirits on their merry way.
Melody is a great character and along with a few other characters, bring a lot of fun to the story.
Lestat the pug has to get a special mention as he does steal the lime light some what from the other characters. For such a small animal he certainly has one big personality. I’ve never been much of a lover of the pug breed but after reading this, I so want one.
I have no idea if this is the start to a new series or a stand alone but I would certainly love to see more of Melody and her quirky family and friends.
Melody Bittersweet and The Girls’ Ghostbusting Agency is a light hearted read that is a lot of fun and is very entertaining. It had just the right amount of fun, mystery, suspense and a little bit of romance thrown in for good measure. Great fun.
My thanks to Netgalley and Bookouture for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
