I only read book 1 of this series recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. So I was delighted I didn't have long to wait until book 2 came out. Mystery at Maplemead Castle is another funny ghostbusting adventure with Melody and friends. If you enjoyed book 1, you’ll love book 2.

I thought the mystery had more depth this time and also gave one of the main characters in particular the opportunity to show considerable character development. It also features a ghost lion; surely sufficient reason alone to read this!

Maplemead Castle is a fantastic setting for mystery and a great backdrop for escalating romantic shenanigans (I won’t say more to avoid spoilers). However, for all the additional steam in this installment, I’d argue the most engaging relationships are still those between the fabulous female characters: between the generations of the Bittersweet family and between Melody and her best friend Marina.

You could read this book as a standalone. That said, as with all series, I think it’s best to read the books in order to get the most from the small details in the characters’ interactions.

If, like me, you’re partial to sweet treats, you’ll be pleased to know that delicious baked goods appear at regular intervals, just in case our heroine or her readers need a sugar rush.

I haven’t come across anything as funny and fun as The Chapelwick Mysteries for a very long time. Highly recommended if you’re looking for some perfect, light-hearted escapism with loveable characters, a cosy mystery and a sprinkling of romance.

What a wonderfully, amusing, humourus, jovial who ghostly done it, with murder, intrigue and romance. Melody Bittersweet has a fantastic way with thoughts and sarcasm, that is so enchanting. Fletcher Gunn is a cad in gentleman's clothing. I do hope these two actually get together one day. Melanie is a Sicilian mam, that is a loyal friend and confidant to her friends and colleagues, and Archie is developing into an arkward, but totally lovable ghostbusters. All the characters are so real, but extreme, even Lestsat. Kitty or Kat French is a wonderfully talented author with many facets, and storylines. This being one of her laughter and chuckle novels. It is easy to read, understand, but is equally compelling and compassionate to all especially those of a spirit nature. Well worth a 5 star plus review. Much better if you have read book 1as well in this series, but not really necessary but desirable to let the characters grow in your mind. Can't wait for the next one, but realise I've got to. I highly recommend a thoroughly outstanding experience if you choose this book. You won't be disappointed.

oh my goodness Mrs F does it again!!! Melody Bittersweet is such a contradiction, sharp and sassy when faced with her ex but sort of like a blushing school girl (with no brain to mouth filter) when in front of a certain newspaper reporter.
Melody with her "magic eyes" has a job alot of people having difficulties with, she sees spirits, so does her ex. this means they tend to meet often on the same jobs, a fact that does not go by unnoticed by melody and her team.
Like the first book there a lots of comedy moments and it's a fun read. It had a mystery side to it but I'd say it's more a lighthearted read than a dark one. I can't wait for the next installment of melody and the gang. I'm dying (pardon the pun) to find out what - if anything- is going to happen between Melody and Fletch. I love Kitty French and her books, another great read!!

Oh my god, this book. I cannot shout any louder about how utterly brilliant this book is. Everyone I speak to, I tell them about this book. I just want everyone to read it. It really is superb. Its so completely different and unique. Its a fabulous romantic comedy, with a bit of mystery, ghosts, a kick ass heroine, two brilliant male leads, especially the gorgeous Fletcher Gunn who I have fallen in love with, superb characters, and some wonderful snort milk through your nose laugh out loud moments. I loved this book so much.

*** Actual rating: 4.5 / 5***

The 'Mystery at Maplemead Castle' is a place where ghouls rule and rival ghost whisperers duel. It’s bursting with personality, non-stop hilarity, and the eccentricities are just tripping off the page!

Chapelwick is the home of the Bittersweets, no nonsense ladies with an intuition for all things other-worldly. There’s the champagne flute wielding grandmother, a pancake flipping mother, a converse wearing daughter and her dog she lovingly named after a fictional vampire (I’m 100% convinced that pooch could have his own series!)

Melody might be the youngest of the clan but she has fiercely inherited her ‘gift’ from a long line of independent Bittersweet women. She embraces a contented sense of fashion offset by a lack of passion sense, at least where recurring mania for the journo-inferno that ‘lights her fire’ is concerned. Yes, self-control reaches breaking point as the Melody/Fletcher connection becomes feverishly intense and risqué humour positively thrives with their dialogue exchanges.

When she isn’t failing spectacularly at applying ‘Fletcher Gunn avoidance tactics’, Melody can be found sniffing out baked goodies faster than her one-eared, keg-bellied pug, Lestat, or chasing the next peculiar presence with her ghostbusting fellowship, who are every bit as quirky as she is.

They’re a cracking bunch of individuals, with the stress on individual! A strong cast is needed to cope with the unwanted, wisecracking visitors residing Maplemead Castle, and I’m not talking about the American couple who bought the property over the internet!
