Book Review

 The facet of this story that interested me the most before reading was there was a writer in the story because I never go into reading a book blind, who needed help with writing a story. That's when I knew I should try and read it. Gino Costello is a famous crime writer he like I said needs help with a resaearch in writing his current book.

 Gino wants a paranormal element to the story so he enlists Emma WhiteCastle who has a paranormal T.V. show and she also sees and comminicates with spirits of the dead. Her main companion besides her fiance Phil is the ghost of her humorous great-great-great Granny Apples, nicknamed for her great apple pie recipe.

 Gino is on a vacation writing retreat and an old farmhouse with a haunted history of the family that once lived there in the 1880's. Gino invites Emma who's daughter is also Best Friends with Gino's daughter and Phil to stay at the house.

There are ghosts in the house that talk to Emma about two of the families missing children and wonder if these children have been murdered.

 At the same time there is drama in the house in the present. The ghost family member that talks to Emma wants her to help the children cross over to the other side. The Ghosts of Misty Hollow was a sometimes sad but very much a cozy mystery and most everyone in the story had some how a paranormal connection and keep me turning pages. The main reason I loved this book was wanting to find out what happened to the children of the ghosts that inhabited this home and the fact there were once very much alive.
