A Review of Haunting Jordan by P.J. Alderman
If you're looking to set the tone for Halloween season, Haunting Jordan by P.J. Alderman is a good place to start http://www.amazon.com/Haunting-Jordan-Port-Chatham-Mystery-ebook/dp/B002PXFYO2/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1443391250&sr=11&keywords=haunting+jordan+by+p.j.+alderman
Haunting Jordan has all the juicy elements for a intriguing Halloween read: a couple of unsolved murder mysteries, a spooky Victorian house, and several ghosts looking for closure. The story is part of the Port Chatham Mystery Series which takes place in the Pacific Northwest
Besides all the spooky elements, Haunting Jordan is a really good “who done it.” The story is about a modern day woman named Jordan Marsh who moves to the town of Port Chatham to escape the pressure of being accused in the murder of her husband. Hoping to distract herself from the case, Jordan tries to focus her attention on restoring an old Victorian house. As luck would have it, Jordan is visited by two ghosts who live in the house, seeking to know the truth about a murder that happened in 1890. I normally can guess who the guilty party is, but not so in this case. I was pleasantly and genuinely surprised by the outcome of this mystery.
Thanks to the intricate plot speckled with humorous dialog, I gave Haunting Jordan four out of five stars on my Goodreads Page:
Alderman has a second novel also set in Port Chatham called Ghost Ship. Once again, Jordan Marsh finds herself with a murder mystery to solve. I couldn't resist ordering this book to continue on with my Halloween reading
