  1. Rated 5 out of 5


    As a non-believer in the para-normal I approached this book with some reluctance, but from the first few pages I was hooked. A lot of characters to keep track of but certainly worth the effort; very amusing. One character stood out, Doris who ran the public house and kept customers interested by using the resident ghost, but also entertained the men by other means. She seemed to me to be worthy of a few television episodes; “such fun!”.

    Ms Willis writes beautifully and with great insight. Much fun to read and the living characters are sympathetically portrayed. I never realised that ghosts too have their problems.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5


    This refreshingly well written book with its whimsical entertaining style held my interest throughout.
    A thoroughly good read & to be recommended to those who enjoy something different & an escape into the world of fantasy & humour.

  4. Rated 5 out of 5


    A thoroughly English tale of a rather eccentric ghost, Adelina who takes us on a frolic through the Cotswolds as she enlists help from mortals and fellow ghosts alike in her endeavours to be reunited with her dear departed husband! Great fun!

  5. Rated 5 out of 5


    Pros: A multi faceted and light hearted tale with a wonderfully descriptive narrative.
    Cons: It’s a shame there isn’t a sequel.

    Guys and Ghosts, both give smiles.

  7. Rated 5 out of 5


    A light, easy read. Adelina who is the eighteenth century resident ghost of Chinkton Manor sets the scene throughout the book which
    flicks back to present day. Adelina has a wonderful way of making you feel almost like a child again filling up your
    imagaination with thoughts of child hood fears, dreams and she makes you laugh out loud at some of the situations
    she gets into – It was fun and funny to read and certainly nothing like anything I have read recently in my bookclub.
    Also having had the added bonus of meeting up with the author herself (who I must say, is a most charming woman and most entertaining)
    I felt I could easily connect with the characters – A must read for escapism.
