I like this different slant on a mystery. I scare easily, but the ghost characters are not at all scary which I like. I enjoyed the story and the bits of civil war history and I'm smart enough to keep track of the characters. I read a couple of the newer books and liked them enough to start the series from the beginning and will work my way through all of them. I don't care if I can't solve the mystery before the book is finished because I read certain books for entertainment, not to stretch my thinking processes.
