What's a Ghoul to Do? by Victoria Laurie

I'm really excited about this new series by Laurie. She writes about Abby Cooper the Psychic Eye and this is a new series with Mary Jane (MJ) Holliday, who's a ghostbuster. MJ works her own company with fellow partner/friend, Gilley, but things are moving at a slow pace and they need money which is why Gilley blows a gasket when MJ turns down the doctor, Sexy Steven Sable aka Dr. De-lish. In the meantime, MJ's love life is as successful as her business, perhaps less so because love doesn't have the choice of declaring bankruptcy. So while pouring her latest sorrows in a cup of coffee at the local café hangout and chatting up her good friend, Karen aka TKO (total knock out), she decides to take the proprietress up on match making setup, who just happens to be the delectable Dr. Sable. MJ relents to both the job and the doctor and they're heading to the mountains to check out the ghosts haunting the place. They get more than they bargain for and manage to help the ghosts and the living people with their problems.

It appears this series is going to employ catchy phrases or song titles. The next two in the series are titled Demons are a Ghoul's Best Friend and Ghouls Just Haunt to Have Fun. I would like to suggest, Demons are Forever and/or My Best Friend's Ghoul, just to name a few.

i'm surprised Jason hasn't come up with a couple titles yet. my offering is : A Ghoul And His Mummy Are Soon Parted.

... How can I beat that... the best I could come up with was It Takes a Pillage to Wraith a Child. Perhaps a political sequel : Drinking the Ghoul-Aid

I'm almost ashamed to post this, but "Ghoul, Frankenstein, and Murder" would be far cooler.

Which reminds me, Mr.Barca - you missed the best conversation on lawyer pickup lines the other day at our house. 10 minutes of stuff like this:

"Tort Reform? Your Torts look just fine to me, baby..."

You'd of fit right in.
