The Ghouls of Howlfair product reviews

Molly Thompson has lots of questions. Questions like, is her Aunt Carol an undead fiend who drinks the blood of the living? Is she secretly lurking in the attic? And is Molly's friend Lowry a descendant of a long line of Kroglin werewolves?

Serious young historian Molly suspects that the creepy legends about her tourist town of Howlfair are starting to come true. But when her mother bans her from doing any further research, bookworm Molly and her friends - Lowry and guardian-cat Gabriel - become covert monster-hunters to keep Howlfair safe. It seems that someone is secretly trying to summon Howlfair's mythical monsters, and with the election of a new town mayor looming, everything - and everyone - is becoming increasingly suspicious...

Part of my job is the lucky benefit of getting advanced reader copies of books, after all, working in a bookshop I need to be able to actually know what I'm talking about. After rifling through the box, I settled on this one, eager for something well written and fun. Well, it didn't meet my well written expectations, but since that only occurred a couple of times it didn't stop me reading the book and I certainly got a book that was fun and even had me chuckling a couple of times (a couple of which I actually read aloud to my mum, so she could share in the laugh).

Molly likes to investigate things but the townspeople sign a petition, asking her to stop because "pretty much every grown-up lives in fear of your next scandal.". Of course, this can't last and soon she's investigating the possibility that the towns history of ghouls, is actually real! What I really like, is that Molly is inquisitive, loyal and works hard. Her best friend and mum also feature a lot, another two female characters. The main baddie has his moments of being suitably creepy, and the young orphan he's roped into his care, well let us just say that where his story led, even though legit, still came a little out of the blue, which is never a bad thing when some get so predictable.

The book flows well, a couple of moments were a little disjointed with the writing style, but none the less it was an enjoyable book, left open for a sequel which I'd sit down to read.
