Haunting the Haunted: Marie Jenner Mystery #6

Haunting the Haunted is the 6th Marie Jenner mystery by E. C. Bell. Released 29th Oct 2019 by Tyche, it's 336 pages and available paperback and ebook formats.

This is a nice paranormal mystery with a likable heroine who is trying to move beyond her traumatic past and find a more comfortable 'normal'. She can see and communicate with ghosts and has a load of drama dumped in her life by a zealous 'psychic debunker' . The plotting and story arc are well done and there's a deft and creeping sense of dread in the narrative.

Despite being the 6th book in the series, it works well as a standalone and the author is gifted at providing the necessary back-story without spoon feeding or info dumping on the reader. The plot arc is well done and engaging and the denouement is exciting (and a little bit terrifying).

Readable and entertaining. Four stars.

 Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
