The Gingerbreadman: Psychopath, sadist, genius, convicted murderer and biscuit is loose in the streets of Reading. It isn't Jack Spratt's case. He and Mary Mary have been reassigned due to falling levels of nursery crime, and The NCD is once more in jeopardy. That is, until a chance encounter during the Armitage Shanks literary awards at the oddly familiar Deja-Vu Club lead Jack and Mary on the hunt for missing journalist Henrietta 'Goldilocks' Hatchett, star reporter for The Daily Toad.

Loved the Nursery Crime Adventure series....kept me riveted to the very end...Ashley the Alien is a great character as are all the characters in the books.... The narrator, Luke Thompson is very well suited and is so easy to listen to and makes all players come to life. Highly recommend these stories to everyone.

After the loss of her mother, Chloe Kennedy starts seeing the ghosts that haunted her as a young girl again. Spending time at her grandmother's country estate in the south of England is her chance to get away from her grief and the spirits that haunt her. Until she meets a mysterious stranger.... Alexander Reade is 157 years dead, with secrets darker than the lake surrounding Grange Hall and a lifelike presence that draws Chloe more strongly than any ghost before. But the bond between them awakens the vengeful spirit of Alexander's past love, Isobel.

Would you consider the audio edition of Ghost House to be better than the print version?

I have no idea about the printed book, but loved the audio version.

Did Emily Foster do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

Ms Foster did a reasonable job, didn't quite get he English accent down but didn't stop me from listening.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I don't know about emotional reaction, but kept me awake all night listening...no sleep that night.

Any additional comments?

Really enjoyed this story and can't wait for book 2.
