THE GHOST AND THE HAUNTED MANSION by Cleo Coyle (AKA Alice Kimberly)
The Ghost and the Haunted Mansion - Alice Kimberly

Pen and Jack must travel back to Jack's time to find what is similar about one of his old cases to the current murder of the owner of Todd Mansion. With Seymour a prime suspect in the murder, it is up to them to save him.

 

I enjoyed this story. I always enjoy when Pen goes back to Jack's time. I love the 1940's. As Jack pushes her to find the connection between their cases and pushes her to develop more of her detecting skills, it's fun to watch her grow both as a person and a PI. There is humor as everyone mistakenly believe something is going on between her and Seymour.

 

For as many cozy mysteries as I have read I would think I would get who it was but until the end of the story I had no idea. Guess I'll never be a detective.

Ghost In the Shell (film + książka)
Ghost In the Shell (film + książka) - praca zbiorowa

Dodatek do filmu "Ghost in the Shell" przedstawia ogólny zarys fabuły, główną problematykę oraz główną kobiecą postać - Major (w tej roli Scarlett Johannson). Znajdziemy tu sporo informacji o produkcji; od miejsc kręcenia (Nowa Zelandia, Hong Kong) przez opis kostiumów, scen walk po garstkę informacji o muzyce Clinta Mansella. Sekcja "O obsadzie" zawiera krótkie życiorysy aktorów występujących w filmie. Niestety dawno nie widziałam tak źle napisanych notek biograficznych. Przykład: notka o Scarlett Johannson, gdzie autor notki rozpoczyna ją od najnowszych filmów, na tych najstarszych kończąc. W rezultacie Scarletr najpierw zagrała w filmie "Avengers", potem w "Między słowami" i zdobywała Złote Globy, później miała lat 8 i zagrała w filmie z Robertem Redfordem... Jakby tego było mało, mamy też tutaj ciągłe powtórzenia słowa "również".

Wydawnictwo umieściło w tym dodatku sporo tekstu pisanego wyraźną, nieirytującą czcionką. Momentami miałam wrażenie, że ta ilość tekstu to takie trochę wodolejstwo złożone z powtórzeń, długich zdań i przytoczeń wypowiedzi twórców filmu (które to cytowane sformułowania nie raz zakrawają o peany pochwalne nad filmem - i to już trochę irytuje po czasie).

Jak w każdym tego typu dodatku, także tu mamy kadry.z filmu. Obrazki są nieduże i nie jest ich wiele. Bardziej skupiono się na tekście, szkoda tylko, że ten tekst jest mierny.

Ocena książki: 3/10
Ocena filmu: 4/10

New Release ~ Code Name: Ghost

 

Code Name: Ghost

(Jameson Force Security, Book #5)

Sawyer Bennett

Release Date: June 30, 2020

 

 

 

Synopsis:

 

I knew the risks of this job when I signed on with Jameson Force Security. Knew my time as a marine would prepare me for the danger I would face. But no amount of training could have ever prepared me for the helplessness of watching my teammates die, the agonizing mental and physical pain of torture, or the despair of captivity. Returning home to Pittsburgh following a mission gone wrong, I am riddled with guilt and haunted by nightmares. I spend my days trying to regain the parts of myself I lost in that desert, the pieces that made me the Malik Fournier I once was. While the physical effects of my torture are fading, the emotional ones are proving much more stubborn and I find solace from the last person I should ever seek such comfort. Anna Tate lost even more than I did in that mission. Now a widow and a single mom to the daughter she gave birth to shortly after her husband’s death, Anna offers me comfort I don’t deserve. As my feelings for Anna grow, I worry that once she learns the truth about what happened, she’ll turn her back on me. I pull her to me just as tightly as I push her away. Hoping this forbidden love will save me from the ghost I’ve become.

Audio Review: Code Name: Ghost (Jameson Force Security #5) by: Sawyer Bennett, Narrated by Aaron Shedlock & Virginia Rose
Code Name: Ghost (Jameson Force Security #5) - Sawyer Bennett

 

 

Code Name: Ghost by Sawyer Bennett

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Action, suspense and heartache. Bennett chose the perfect name for a character who plays hide and seek with every emotion the heart has to offer. Shedlock and Rose bring out the best of each other. Their haunting delivery of Malik and Anna will have you reaching for the tissues even as the sparks fly and the heart breaks.

The Ghost's Grave by Peg Kehret
The Ghost's Grave - Peg Kehret

Josh's mom and stepfather recently moved, but he's begun to adjust. He plans on making new friends and settling in during summer vacation, and has already earned a place on the baseball team. Unfortunately, his parents will both be away for work this summer - jobs that are sorely needed - so instead of baseball, Josh is forced to stay with his stepfather's Great-Aunt Ethel in some backwater town for the summer. Spending time in a treehouse, he runs into the ghost of a coal miner named Willie who has a very specific favor to ask....

 

This is your classic shipped off to the boonies for the summer story, but Kehret elevates it by giving the characters depth and focusing on small details to ground the work. 'Ghost's Grave' is a ghost story with a bank-robbery subplot, but it doesn't skimp on the relationships between the characters. This reminded me of 'Ghost Cat' in that a book that very easily could have been hokey and silly, turned into something memorable instead. I loved these kind of stories growing up.
