Publisher's Summary

Alison Kerby’s guesthouse is haunted all year round. Surviving the dead of winter, though? That’s a spooky proposition. Even with a blizzard bearing down on New Jersey, Alison can count on at least two guests—Paul and Maxie, the stubborn ghosts who share her shore town inn. Then there’s her widowed mother, who hasn’t just been seeing ghosts, she’s been secretly dating one: Alison’s father. But when he stands her up three times in a row, something’s wrong. Is he a lost soul…or a missing apparition? Their only lead is an overdramatic spirit—stage name Lawrence Laurentz—who doesn’t take direction well and won’t talk until they find his killer. Alison will reluctantly play the part of PI, but when the clues take a sinister turn, the writing is on the wall: If Alison can’t keep a level head, this will be her father’s final act—and maybe her own.


Audible Editor Reviews

Allison Kerby can communicate with ghosts, but her uncanny gift has its price: Allison frequently finds herself in the reluctant role of private investigator for specters seeking supernatural justice. When Allison’s late father - himself among her ghostly guests - suddenly disappears, Allison seeks clues to his whereabouts from her new client, a vindictive and vengeful visitor, his death shrouded in mystery. The ensuing intrigue threatens to make a ghost of Allison herself. Portraying the haunted heroine, actress Amanda Ronconi is animated and amiable, emphasizing Allison’s role as a caring, compassionate mother. Indeed, Allison is very much a family woman, even if her family is full of phantoms. Nevertheless, as Allison plunges into a plight of peril, Ronconi strikes an increasingly tremulous tone, rife with raw urgency.

Snowed in With the Ghosts

Would you listen to Chance of a Ghost again? Why?

Excellent book for relistening too.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that it took place in the winter and a big storm hits Jersey.

Which character – as performed by Amanda Ronconi – was your favorite?

I think Maxie would be my choice as Ronconi really captures the salty ill tempered resentful Maxie.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No but I did not care much for Maxie being able to fly with Alison so far in a storm. Just seemed to not be something a ghost can do. That is the reason for 4 stars instead of 5.

Any additional comments?

As always a fast and fun book to listen to or read.

Good but not the best in the series

Another fun cozy mystery set at the guesthouse. A few new characters join the existing cast for another case. Similar to past cases Alison reluctantly joins the case and brings along her group with some funny consequences. Well written and plotted out, the only thing I think this missed (other than the summer beach theme) is it was a bit lacking in some of the witty banter what was present in the first couple books. Otherwise it was a lot of fun.

Ms. Ronconi does a great job with the book and really brings the characters to life!
