The luxurious Lathrop Grand Hotel is a Savannah institution that has entertained guests for more than a century and a half, offering some of the finest accommodations in the city. Famously haunted, the hotel draws tourists from around the world eager to encounter its numerous ghosts. The hotel is also known for being honeycombed with hidden doors and secret passages, enabling staff to appear and disappear quickly as they attend to the hotel's guests.

Now some of the spirits in the Lathrop Grand have turned violent, even murderous. Ellie and Stacey must determine which ghost has become dangerous and remove it from the hotel before it can claim any more lives. They soon learn the hotel has secrets even darker than the notorious string of nineteenth-century murders that made it famous, and the powerful entities inhabiting it don't intend to leave without a fight.

                    My Thoughts                   

Welcome to the Lathrop Grand Hotel, where you can check in, but not always check out.

What an amazing read. At this point I know I am starting to sound like a broken record, but here it goes,  this series honestly just keeps getting better and better!!! I didn't think you could top a haunted train, but J.L. Bryan did it again. The Lathrop Grand Hotel called in Ellie and her team to help eliminate their little ghostly issue. You see, The hotel gets visited on a normal basis for being haunted by the ghost of Stabby Abby, A nurse during the war who took the lives of soldiers, but over all she has never been dangerous to guest. Now the hotel is experiencing much more activity than they have had in the past, and people are starting to get hurt. Ellie and Stacey definitely have their hands full with this hotel, not to mention the secret hotel passages they have to navigate through to keep this ghost hunting job quite and unknown to the current guest. I love how they have to sift through the history of the Lathrop to see which ghost are the ones creating the issue, and believe me there are a lot of ghost to choose from! Cult members, crooked doctors, stabby abby and her soilders... this list goes on.  What an amazing read, can't wait to check out the next book in the Ghost Trapper series, Maze of Souls !

and if you haven't already started the Ellie Jordan / Ghost Trapper series, go check it out on Amazon ! Its currently FREE for your kindle right now !
