Mrs. Morris and the Vampire review

This is the fifth in the Salem B&B series by Traci Wilton, a pen name for the writing team of of authors Traci Hall and Patrice Wilton. I feel like they’ve really come up with a great series concept after having followed this series from its start. I hope there are lots of adventures left for Charlene, Jack and Sam. I’m just happy the books have been coming out more often than once a year! 

As an added note, I thought the tunnel aspect of Salem, MA sounded pretty fascinating and found the book on Amazon that was referenced in this book! I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be brave enough to go down there even if they did do legal tours! 

My Goodreads review:

Mrs. Morris and the Vampire (A Salem B&B Mystery, #5)Mrs. Morris and the Vampire by Traci Wilton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a fun and spooky visit to Salem at Halloween time that started with a Halloween ball. Charlene knew her two witch friends were real, but how ’bout those self-professed vampires huh? Charlene had to juggle keeping Sam off her back for doing her usual snooping and keeping herself out of the killer’s crosshairs.

We got to learn a little more about Brandy and her daughter Serenity, since Serenity was part of the focus of the story. Charlene and Brandy had a rocky start, and I still wouldn’t call her exactly a friendly friend, but Brandy definitely came in handy at the end. Even Sam believed a dream she’d had (would’ve been pretty bad if he hadn’t!). Meanwhile, I love how Jack was learning to do more and more things in his ghostly existence. He’s really become quite the computer research wizard. If I was Charlene, I know I’d be so torn between the two men she’s crazy about! Although sometimes I lean toward Jack just because he’s so darn sweet! I’m always looking forward to the next in this awesome series!

Mrs. Morris and the Sorceress review

This is the fourth book in what’s become one of my favorite series, Salem B&B by author Traci Wilton. the pen name for the writing duo of Traci Hall and Patrice Wilton. My favorite character of course, is the hilarious and lovable ghost Dr. Jack Strathmore. Charlene’s a great character who just wants to help, but her nosiness and impulsive plowing forward with ideas sometimes get her into hot water. The Salem B&B is definitely someplace I’d stay if it was real though (possibly just for Minnie’s amazing food she makes!).

My Goodreads review:

Mrs. Morris and the Sorceress (A Salem B&B Mystery #4)Mrs. Morris and the Sorceress by Traci Wilton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Every time I read one of the books in this series, I’m more in love with Dr. Jack the ghost, lol. As if he couldn’t get any more awesome or funny, he sure proved it in this book! Then there’s that human cutie named Sam. I can honestly see why Charlene has such a hard time and loves each one of them in their own way. Although Sam believes in tough love and learning things the hard way, as Charlene was going to find out later in the book.

I had a feeling about midway or more toward the end of whodunit, but boy was I wrong! The showdown was pretty epic, and a happy ending was had by all…except for the perp and dead woman that is. I really love Avery’s character and how she’s changed and grown. I’m willing to bet that Charlene wishes she could have adopted the girl had she known her when she was younger, but at least they got some good quality time together outside B&B working hours. It was fun to see Charlene kick back and actually go somewhere with her girlfriends too for a change. I always hate for books in this series to end, because it means I have to wait patiently on the next one!

Mrs. Morris and the Ghost of Christmas Past review

This is the third book in what quickly became a favorite newer series for me. It’s called Salem B&B and written by Traci Wilton, a pen name for the writing team of Traci Hall and Patrice Wilton. I fell in love with the ghost of Dr. Jack from the get-go and love how he and Charlene interact and research cases together. Salem at Christmas sounded awesome!

My Goodreads review:

Mrs. Morris and the Ghost of Christmas Past (A Salem B&B Mystery, #3)Mrs. Morris and the Ghost of Christmas Past by Traci Wilton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was such an awesome Christmas mystery! I just love the cover of this book and could really picture the B&B all decked out for Christmas. I felt sad for Jack knowing how much he’s always liked Charlene that he couldn’t give her a Christmas hug, but he seemed fairly happy. He always came in handy for helping to research during a case, and he made a good silent sleuthing partner for Charlene. This case was dealing with the murder of one of the locals, and it was actually someone who was a good benefactor, so it was a little sad to have them killed.

Charlene was dealing with her parents staying till after Christmas, and her mom wasn’t the most likable person, but I have to admit, she grew on me after a while especially what she helped with toward the end. I wasn’t right about the killer this time, but finding the real one was a good little adventure and showdown. I’m hoping that Charlene is getting a little closer to opening her heart to Sam after this book, at least they seemed to be in a decent place for now. I really liked Charlene’s dad a lot! That man was a saint to put up with her mom lol. And I liked the character of Avery who Charlene hired to help Minnie with housekeeping chores. I hope she sticks around. I’m always anxious for the next book in this series!
