Blurb Blitz and Giveaway: Haunting the Haunted by EC Bell

This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. E.C. Bell will be awarding a $20 Amazon/BN GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour. Click on the tour banner to see the other stops on the tour.

In the sixth book in the Marie Jenner Mystery series, life is finally starting to look up for Marie. Her brand-new business—moving on ghosts for actual money—is taking off. Her relationship with James Lavall is rock solid. All she has to do is find the last two poltergeists from the ball diamond and move them on to the next plane of existence and, as far as she’s concerned, life will be perfect.

The problem is, life has a way of kicking Marie in the teeth. Patrick Whitecroft, professional psychic debunker, shows up at the Jimmy Lavall Detective agency. He’s out to prove that she’s a fake—live, on TV—and he doesn’t care who he hurts to do it. Even worse, he has over a hundred desperate spirits bound to him, and they want something completely different. They want to be saved.

As Marie tries to help the spirits and keep Patrick from dismantling her life, she finally finds the poltergeists. But they’re not interested in moving on. They want Patrick Whitecroft’s spirits for themselves. If Marie can’t figure out a way to move all the spirits on to the next plane of existence, the poltergeists will happily take them, so they can create an army bent on revenge.

Looks like Marie’s life is going to get interesting. Again.

Read an Excerpt

I heard footsteps out in the hallway outside the office. “Looks like we’re going to get more work,” I said.

“Oh, for heaven’s sake!” Karen snapped. “Blow them off. You have to take care of business. My business.”

“This is my day job,” I said. “Get over it.”

I went back to my desk and slapped my receptionist smile on my face as the footsteps stopped in front of our door. The doorknob slowly turned, and through the frosted glass of the door, I could see glowing. It got so bright I couldn’t look without squinting.

“You see this?” I asked Karen, and pointed. “Do those look like ghosts to you?”

She gasped. “Maybe it’s Rita and Joanne, the poltergeists,” she said. “How would they have found you? Found us?”

“It can’t be them,” I said. “They don’t know where the office is.”

The door opened, and a man walked into the office. He was surrounded by ghosts, so many of them I couldn’t even begin to count. I did not recognize him. Heck, it was hard to even see him through the writhing spirit mass.

“What is going on here?” Karen asked.

A fair question, to my mind. I’d never seen anything like this before in my life and I felt my receptionist smile fade. Something told me that he was not here to see James Lavall.

He was here to see me.

  1. Another great book to discover. Thanks so much for sharing this with us.

  2. Which character from the book do you most relate to?

    1. Good morning, Bernie! (I missed this question yesterday. Sorry about that!) The character I most relate to in the series is Marie Jenner's friend Jasmine. She's a mom who works full time, with three kids, and is just trying to make a good life for them--and she has this really weird friend who needs her, almost as much as her kids do. (That would be Marie!) She gives advice all the time, and I LOVE giving advice!

  3. Good morning! Thanks for hosting Haunting the Haunted today. I'll drop by throughout the day and answer any questions your commenters may have. This will be fun!

    1. Hi Bridgett! Thank you so much! I hope you enjoy it. You can read it on its own, but I think that reading Dying on Second, Hearing Voices, and then Haunting the Haunted gives you Karen Dubinsky's whole story. (She's one of the ghosts who Marie is trying to help.) Heck, read the whole series, and then you'll find out how Marie ends up on TV!

  5. happy wednesday i love the excerpt

  6. I like the cover, thanks for the chance!
