This was a no brainer really as I had come to the same conclusion of what was happening very early in the book. Suitable for easy light reading, I didn't find it as "hilarious" as the blurb would lead you to believe, although there were some funny moments. Some of the editing leaves a bit to be desired but overall not a bad book, if you can overlook that and the changes of title. Originally published as Can You Kick a Ghost in the Nuts? (The Harper Files #1; Blue Moon Investigations #2.5), then labelled "Spooky Shopping Mall: The Harper Files: Case 1", now renamed as "Amanda Harper Paranormal Detective: Blue Moon Investigations Book 3"

    Stephanie Plum has met her match in Amanda! I'm fact, Lula has met hers too with Patience. I am thrilled to find a good action story with the perfect amount of humour. I am really going to enjoy these stories and finding an author that can add the snarky retorts. Enjoy! Stephanie Plum has met her match in Amanda! I'm fact, Lula has met hers too with Patience.

    It's a step up from policing. Who would have thought that a ghost would betray itself by flatulence? That was not sulfur and brimstone we smelled. This story had cartoonish stereotypes, but the way they were narrated kept us afloat on a level of detachment which softened them enough that we have to admit that our actual lives are just as outlandish, really.

Ms Amanda Harper is disillusioned by her career in policing and ready for a different sort of public service as a private investigator. Her first assignment, which overlaps with her final days on the force, delineates why she is a great fit for her new job at Blue Moon Investigations. She and her new boss have quite a bit in common, even in the sort of friendships they pursue-- a wacky cross-section of southeast England's best and worst.

    Cute but needs development. The characters are cliche and don’t read as genuine at all. Relationships are hollow and false. The protagonist is a female cop. She seems much too soft and naive to have spent any time working as a policewoman. The casual police brutality is awful. A teenage boy makes come rude comments so he gets his nuts crushed by a female officer. Three other officers watch and gossip about how she once stripped two males and duct tapped them together face to groin. Its not humoro Cute but needs development.

A teenage boy makes come rude comments so he gets his nuts crushed by a female officer. Three other officers watch and gossip about how she once stripped two males and duct tapped them together face to groin. Its not humorous at all, but an abuse of power condoned by other officers. This isn’t something that fits with the personality of the protagonist at all. The mystery that needs solving was obvious, which is always disappointing. If I can solve it myself well before the characters then I’m not gonna believe they are good investigators.

    Disappointing The title sounded cute so I downloaded it but I wish I hadn’t. It was written poorly—it badly needs an editor, the story and character development were lacking (Stephanie Plum type wannabe) and it was too predictable. Additionally the ending tried to engage the reader enough to keep reading the series when really it turned me off of it even more. Lastly, the title question wasn’t relevant and that was the only thing that had drawn me to the book in the first place.

    Was an interesting story. Would have appreciated it more if it did not contain so many grammatical errors. I hate having to take a sentence and try to figure out how it should read so I know what the author is trying to tell me. As to it being humorous, it left much to be desired. And a comparison to Stephanie Plum is ridiculous. Among other things none of Evanovich's books are crude. And this one most definitely was. All in all, although this may be some people's bag, it is not my cup of tea. Was an interesting story. Would have appreciated it more if it did not contain so many grammatical errors.

    Satisfaction It seems to be easier for people to believe in malignant spirits than to find a reasonable and realistic reason for mischief. Although getting proof can become difficult, modern electronics have helped overcome some of the obstacles. Characters have been made relatable through their playing fast and loose with following police procedures to the letter, rather doing what it takes to get things done. Sexual tension added to wisecracking dialogue makes this a fast reading page turner.

    This is only the first four chapters and so can only have a limited review. Amanda is working out her last few shifts with the police department before joining a paranormal detective agency. The extract covers the paranormal event, her weekend to Paris with her new boyfriend and her morning at the police station. The story is only developing and so it's unclear what will happen in the rest of the story. It's written well with Amanda being an engaging lead.

    A quick read with some humor. I like the story of a cop that is going into the paranormal business of detective work. The story was cute and had humor mixed into. I liked the over all story and thought it good. I don't want to give spoilers. I wished I connected a little more with it as liked the basic story but I guess I just felt it needed a little more. If you want a short, cute read with humor mixed in give it a try as it was worth a read. A quick read with some humor.

    Interesting Mystery Fun characters, interesting mystery. This was not a full size book, but a lot was captured in the novella. It was fast paced, not overly complex mystery. I pretty much guessed who did it and how about three quarters through the book. It was fun seeing how the heroine caught her bad guy. Also of interest was the potential love triangle. Which hottie will she choose?

    I've read the first couple of chapters, four exactly, of this book in a kind of free peek. Based on the first chapter, the series seems to be fun filled, with enough mystery/paranormal interest to hold the reader's attention. There also appears to be a romance angle brewing, but in fact two. And there's also the big mouth good meaning friend that's more trouble than help. Should be a good series.

    A New Debut Amanda Harper has her first case as a paranormal investigator for the Blue Moon Investigations Agency involving a case of a ghost in an elevator in a run down shopping center in this debut novella. I found this book not as funny or enjoyable as the Tempest Michaels novels but hopefully the next novels in the series will be better. Recommend for people who have read any of the Tempest Michaels novels by Steve Higgs.

    Stereotype central I know this book is supposed to be humorous, but it was just so full of stereotypes, patients, had to love chicken, sound borderline illiterate, be overweight, short tempered, loud, overly opinionated about sex men and other things, and just plain stereotypical, this book just made me sick I didn’t enjoy anything about it, the characters were stereotypes and or bland, the mystery was awful, and I definitely just did not enjoy anything about this read

    Amanda is working out her two weeks notice from the police department and transitioning into her new job as an investigator for Blue Moon Paranormal Investigations. She asks her zany coworker Patience to give her a hand with her first assignment only to find out that Patience fears ghosts. Lots of fun complete with a personal laugh and groan situation at the end.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Loved the characters in this book they where funny and the storylines where good to. Amanda has put in her notice to leave the police force and become a paranormal investigator. Her first case is ghost in the lifts at the old mall. Her friend and fellow police officer Patience loved to eat, has a trash mouth and loves men. Would recommend this book to mystery romance fans.🔰

    The first in a 3 book series on my Kindle. About an ex cop turned investigator (surprise). She is trying to solve a case in London, in which people are entering an elevator, the elevator stops, the lights go off and any shopping bags on the floor are stolen. By who? She also has a fat sidekick who loves to eat...guess what? Fried chicken. Can we say shades of Stephanie Plum and Lula?

    The New Job A great written series full of amusing and alluring remarks as well events. A female police officer is lieveing the force on a new career in the P.I business, but not as any other P.I but the paranormal world. Do you believe she can make it in her new path. Read the book and find out what happens. Kat

    Good story but lots of trash sex This would have been a good story, had it not been for the frequent, particularly vulgar and absolutely unnecessary sex references. I’m not a prude: I like a good sex scene but not the trashy vulgar stuff. Amazon should have a special rating system for books like this.

    Fun Mystery The case is interesting, the characters are a good mix of in your face and respectable. I figured out what was going on near the beginning but it was fun to read through how it was solved. It's a quick read. Some language could offend , however, it's really not an issue, especially for me. It is fiction. Fun Mystery The case is interesting, the characters are a good mix of in your face and respectable.

    Funny story of ghost hunting in a elevator at a small mall. Soon to be retired police officer Amanda and her loud mouthed, pushy partner investigate the theft of shopping bags from several elevators by a ghost. As well as following the clues for this mystery we are given a glimpse into her love life. Still funny, but her partner’s comments are totally disgusting.

    Up until this point I have enjoyed Steve Higgs but, in this case I just didn’t care for this series --- the cops were so totally unprofessional, the language was horrible and words that I would even write about much less blabber all over an office – was disappointed in this read and totally glad when it was over with!

    This audio book was well narrated. I found it amazing that the inhabitants of this town would readily accept the concept of a ghost as opposed to try and figure/investigate to see what the causes could be. I figured out early who was behind the thefts. This was a good escape from the news of today.

    My first (short) read/listen from authors Steve & Gemma Higgs. Well written & enjoyable reminiscent of authors Emma Calin & Jennifer Stevenson. Narrator Hannah Richter’s voice was perfect for this book and added to the listening enjoyment. I was given an Audible copy of this book & am voluntarily reviewing it.

    This novella length listen introduces Amanda Harper just as she is starting to work for Tempest Michaels. The audio repeated some parts and had sort of odd pauses in a couple places. I didn’t care for some of the language or sexual talk Patience used. It detracts from an otherwise entertaining story. There is a ghost in the shopping center elevators.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Not my cup of tea. In spite of the “paranormal detective “ in the name, nothing paranormal in this book at all. I knew what was going on in the case in the first chapter. Did not appreciate the stereotypical black female character, eyes bugging and eating buckets of fried chicken. Way too much dialog about dicks and hoos hoos for my taste. Hard pass on any more

    I’m not sure what I was expecting, but I didn’t expect it to be so witty. Amanda Harper is a likable character and this is a good start to the Harper Files. I will also continue with the Blue Moon Investigations series.

    No you cant Smart female lead with a libidinous girlfriend. Not terribly original but still a bit of fun. The story is well told, the plot lacks a bit of logical consistency but its a mystery light so it can be forgiven. I dont normally buy short books, I now remeber why.

    Wonderful fun Another wonderful adventure full of the every day humor of trying to be human. Never a dull moment with Higgs! I hope he can write fast, as I am nearing the end of his available collection.
