The sequel to "Laying a Ghost", the plot of this book didn't rely on the same problems of the first. Instead, the couple gets an honest-to-goodness continuation of their story with new adventures, new characters, and new impediments, which I appreciated.

I felt the second book was not quite as good as the first. Although it was still entertaining, I feel the authors could have taken better advantage of their plot lines than they did. For example, when Nick and John go to the site of a plane crash and ghosts with unfinished business start attacking Nick. The authors could have done a lot with the ghosts and their bereaved reletives, however, they glossed over the ghosts and focused on Nick's control over them instead. There's something to be said for focus, but in this case, I felt like the details were missing. In spite of its faults, there was still much to enjoy about the second book and I hope the authors will write more about these characters. ( )

Book description
From Loose Id:Most of the people in Florida are soaking up the sun. Nick and John are dealing with a plane crash, a gold-digger, a reporter with an eye on more than a good story, and some startling revelations about Nick's family. And that's before the ghosts from the crash get angry with Nick, the one person who can hear them. They're struggling with their relationship when the trip begins--sex works, sex works well; it's the other stuff that's a problem. Getting away seemed like a good way to work things out. But this is one getaway that might leave John and Nick wishing they'd stayed at home. Or it might be just what they needed to find out that home is where the heart is.
