94) Ghost of a Chance by Kate Marsh

If you have any transmortis anomalies that you need to get rid of then Karma Marx if your gal. Exorcising haunted houses and sending troublesome spirits into the ever after if her thing even though she usually just takes the strays home with her. Spider her nasty cheating husband uses Karma and her skills to get him ahead in the real estate game. However Karma is ready to throw him out and makes a deal with him. One last house cleaning and she gets a divorce.

Although cleaning the house doesn't go as well as it should. Adam the ex-owner of the house still believes he owns the house and isn't happy about the current events. So when Spider turns up with his business partner and wife, Adam seals the house using his poltergeist powers, locking them in for twelve hours. Karma has her new foster child with her and also her dad. Without them she knows she would be in a lot of trouble. As things turn out it isn't Karma who gets into trouble when someone locked in the house is found dead.

Why this book says Katie MacAlister writing as Kate Marsh is beyond me. This is Katie's style and putting another name on it seems unnecessary. However getting beyond that this is most likely the best book by this author that I have read. I love her Aisling Grey series and have read alot of her other books but this one was something different and unusual.

I loved Karma from the word go and her life, while hectic, is very cool. The other characters were also great and I really hope that they will appear again sometime in another book. The twist at the end nearly took me by surprise but it was something I started to suspect. Wonderfully written this poltergeist fun filled book was action packed and made for exciting reading. I want more!

Yet another book that I have had on my bookshelf for far too long. I am sure I have some other gems there gathering dust but ther is always the same old problem. Too many books, too little time.

I loved this book! It was fun and wonderfully entertaining. I was curious why it was published as Katie MacAlister writing as Kate Marsh. I'd get it because Katie Mac wrote it, especially after I read some rave reviews. I'd have found it one way or another. Ah well, the mysteries of the publishing world.
