Ghostly Echoes: A Jackaby Novel

William Ritter
“Tread lightly, Miss Rook,” warned Mr. Jackaby. “It would not do to push Miss Cavanaugh too far or too fast.” Jenny Cavanaugh, the ghostly lady of 926 Augur Lane, has enlisted the investigative services of her fellow residents to solve a decade-old murder--her own. Abigail Rook and her eccentric employer, R. F. Jackaby, dive into the cold case, starting with a search for Jenny’s fiancé, who went missing the night she died. But when a new, gruesome murder closely mirrors the events of ten years prior, Abigail and Jackaby realize that Jenny’s case isn’t so cold after all. Fantasy and folklore mix with mad science as Abigail’s race to unravel the mystery leads her across the cold cobblestones of nineteenth-century New England, down to the mythical underworld, and deep into her colleagues’ grim histories to battle the most deadly foe she has ever faced.Ghostly Echoes, the third installment in the New York Times bestselling Jackaby series, features its much-loved quirky, courageous characters and sly humor in the scariest and most exciting volume yet.

I didn't love the writing as much as I did the second book. I thought from Jackaby to Beastly Bones had really grown in writing style but there were a lot of overused words in Ghostly Echoes that was bothersome and a few places where the action slipped a bit and I had to look back to catch up and make sure I hadn't missed anything.

The story did progress rather well though!! I love where this overall series arc is going and I always appreciate being able to look back and see what had been planned from book one that the reader didn't always know.

I'm also really glad that we got to know more about Jenny, her past, and her role at Augur Lane.

Looking forward to book four!!

Review as posted on The Book Addict's Guide 3/17/17: GHOSTLY ECHOES was a bit different all together with one of the main characters being involved in the mystery instead of someone from the outside. I really loved how much more personal the mystery became — to Jackaby and Abigail as well as the reader — and where the whole series went! Things really escalated in this book and I really appreciated how so many things came full circle here.

The friendships in this book were stepped up even more and I love how much tighter this group got! The different elements in this mystery were also top notch and I think this was my favorite book of the series!
