    The pun filled title notwithstanding EJ Copperman’s first novel in this series deals not with zombies but ghosts Single mom Alison Kerby not Kirby buys a dilapidated Victorian mansion on the Jersey Shore to turn into a guesthouse but gets than she bargained for in the purchase The house comes with two demanding ghosts Private investigator Paul Harrison and over the top Maxie Malone were killed a year ago and they can’t cross over until they find out who killed them For that they want Alison to find out for them Naturally enough Alison doesn’t want to tangle with a proven double murderer but she ends up doing so because well because otherwise there wouldn’t be a book much less a series would there?With a very likeable heroine Night of the Living Deed proves cute enough sort of reminiscent of early Stephanie Plum before the slapstick and lust became too thick and the mystery plots became too thin The novel suffers a bit from predictability and Alison’s too wise for her age 9 year old wisecracking daughter Melissa Alison’s Pollyanna ish mother and her wacky friends seem plucked from a lackluster TV sitcom Despite some flaws EJ Copperman a nom de plume for screenwriter and mystery writer Jeffrey Cohen manages to include a clever mystery and enough funny uips and scenes to redeem the novel for all but the most demanding readers I’ll definitely be back for the seuel An Uninvited Ghost

    This is a good cozy series made up of a single mother trying to refurbish an old home a sassy daughter an eclectic clingy grandmother and of course a couple of wacky ghosts It had just the right amount of enticing mystery and likable characters to keep me wanting to pick it back up This is definitely a light paranormal that can be a bit far fetched but that is all part of the fun I did read book two in the series before this one and it was interesting enough to make me want to start the series from the beginningAs always Amanda Ronconi's voices added to the enjoyable humor that kept this fast pace whodunit engaging and lively

    3 35 starsI listened to this one on a recent car trip I prefer mysteries instead of music when traveling distances by car I was entertained it was fun I'm not a huge fan of the readernarratorperformance She did grow on me Nice set up for a series I didn't think I would continue after this book but now I am interested in book 2 I like the ghosts who were murdered in the house that Alison bought after her divorce Her intentions to turn the house into a guest house to support herself and her daughter Melissa is somewhat interrupted by the appearance of ghosts who want their murder solved

    25 stars This book took me a month to get through 😳 😡 It had a lot of basic ingredients for an enjoyable read but it just didn't come together for me I literally fell asleep reading it on than one occasion After a while I figured this out and started reading it deliberately when I couldn't get to sleepSo disappointing because I have been on the hunt for a good series set in New Jersey I love Harlan Coben books but I was hoping for one of these cozy mystery series as Coben's books are intenseI'm not the biggest fan of ghosts in mg stories for some reason and these were pretty awful Paul was almost cardboard bland and Maxie was annoying as all get out Our heroine was TSTL as the kids say Her 9 year old and her kooky mom repeatedly show themselves to be intelligent UghI don't even know where to start on this convoluted story By the time we reach the conclusion I'd long since stopped caring

    Alison Kerby is newly divorced and moves back to her hometown in New Jersey to transform a 100 year old beachfront home into a guesthouse Just as she starts her DIY project she gets struck on the head by a falling can of joint compound When she comes to she doesn't just see the mess on the floor but the spirits of two people who died in the house The spirits beg her to help them find otu who killed them Alison is reluctant to get involved The safety of her 9 year old daughter is much important than helping two dead people But when she starts getting death threats just like the former owner did before she died Alison realizes she needs to help the ghosts before she becomes the killer's next victimThis book is a great mix of humor and murder mystery The main character is a hoot She is smart determined and sassy The two ghosts are wonderful characters as well Moxie the former owner of the house is temperamental and prone to destroying things to get her point across A former private investigator hired by Moxie Paul sends Alison on investigative missions because as a ghost he can't leave the propertyI loved this book Solid 4 out of 5 stars The story was great The cover art was fantastic I am definitely going to be reading of this series There are 7 books in this series so far The 8th book will be released in December of this year EJ Copperman is a pseudonym for author Jeff Cohen

    The most exciting stories in the world are about spiritual encounters and aged houses with secrets for discovery I know it's no author's responsibility for books to be what we expected Night Of The Living Deed was not but grading cannot be based on that Here are my two cents on what it IS I'm a 'save the best for last' person and since a full on ghost story has been hard to find since the 1990s I savoured this modern 'Haunted Guesthouse' series by collecting it and holding it in ueueIt is not spooky Perhaps gothic mysteries achieve that best I didn't mind that Alison uickly saw and spoke with spectres but there was no intoxicating moment of wonder The allure of a hidden artefact came late and I definitely didn't anticipate a protagonist full of jokes But an inaugural novel is always about getting used to a new character I have to say the humour is unexpectedly hilarious and remarkably well executed I was freuently winded by hearty giggling If not the mystical environment I sought after realistic dialogue and jarring wit are complimented with exceptional writingThere are numerous side remarks but not as excess literary fillers Everything ‘Alison’ does ties into multiple plots and they are very well devised Not being a parent I was unsure I'd invest in a Mom with a grade schooler but uickly liked her and Melissa Grandma grows interesting too and develops beyond a cliché parental figure that calls by phone The proof of an excellent book is in the interest level of the pudding You want everyone to succeed and are absorbed enough in the storylines to follow along uickly It is one hour after closing the final page and I am already convinced I am going to devour everything EJ Copperman releases

    This is not a scary ghost or zombie story It is a mystery with a witty funny main character I loved her snarky attitude her poignant evaluations of life and her self reliant nature I have to admit that about 34 of the way through the book I got a little tired of the wit wrapped around pretty much everything she said but I got over it because by then I was so interested to see who did it There were some really humorous remarks that I wanted to write down and memorize so I could say them at opportune times The mystery aspect was fast paced I couldn't put the book down I was trying to cook dinner one handed so I could keep reading After dinner I propped the book on the window sill and tried to keep reading while I washed dishes I hope the library will not notice the water warbling on every page through that part of the book It had just the right amount of correct clues mixed with misleading hints to keep me guessing I will definitely find the next one and read it

    I love this book It was fun and humorous as well as a wonderful character study Of course I've enjoyed everything that EJ's alter ego has written so it wasn't much of a surpriseAlison Kerby has purchased a house and is working to renovate the seven bedroom house into a guesthouse She's a pretty fair carpenter and handywoman who is doing most of the work herself She is trying to build a new life for herself and her nine year old daughter When she is hit on the head by a bucket she suddenly finds that she can see and talk to ghosts These ghosts are trapped in her house because they were killed there Paul the male ghost talks her into helping him solve the murders Murder and hilarity ensueI can't wait for the next in the series this is a lot of fun and I'm not the biggest fan of the paranormal craze If you haven't gotten a copy of this one do yourself a favor and run out or use the Internet to get a copy

    AudiobookEnjoyable audiobook about a house with ghosts and what people have tried to do to obtain this house No romance Loved the mom I'm not sure about Paul Ended up liking Maxie I would recommend this audiobook

  10. Genevieve Bomes Genevieve Bomes says:

    I really liked this book and I loved the characters The ghosts were really great characters I love grumpy old Maxie and PI Paul I also just Alison and her daughter The cop I could do without She really played a nothing role except to tell Alison she should let them protect her and she was messing everything up The story line kept me guessing till the end and I am so glad that the history teacher is history Alison should have a great hot guy
