Synopsis (Goodreads):
It's Halloween and Maggie's mother has invited all the ghosts of the neighborhood over for a party. Unfortunately, one of the ghosts is wanted by the Other Side's finest. It’s up to Maggie and Killian to find out what caused this soul's unrest and return him to his happy haunting ground.
Thoughts on The Ghost & Mrs. MacKay: I read the first book in this series ages ago (apparently as a guest post, so... okay), and this story has the same frantic energy I remember from that one. As in, there are so many pop culture hits and quick-fire similes and metaphors you had to pay attention or risk being lost in a sea of ...something flowery. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it was something that made me feel exhausted after reading. (My weirdly sleepless night could have been to blame for that, too, if I'm being honest.)

That said, it's fun. Yes, you have to pay attention. Yes, Maggie strikes me as being one step away from more than slightly crazed. But it works.

So, do with this what you will.
