Hi Readers,

This is a wonderful book, number three in the series. You cannot help but support Presley Parker in her new job as an Event Planner. This is a perfect premise for a mystery series and I really hope that she continues to regale us with Presley's adventures.

Presley's newest enterprise is planning a Sťance party at the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, CA. The party is to enable her client, Jonathan Ellington, to present his new holographic technology. With this technology, he plans to have the former owner, Sarah Winchester come back from the dead and advertise his new 4D technology to a group of movie producers and various businesses that could use it for advertising.

But, the magic backfires when a strange voice accuses Jonathan of cheating on his wife. Of course, his wife and business associates were sitting there for the whole performance. On top of all that, the geek techie that was running the show is found murdered after the event is over. Jonathan disappears and Presley tries to get at the truth. The murderer will try anything to stay anonymous including proceeding to scare Presley off, literally.

Run out and pick up this book along with the first two, How to Crash a Killer Bash and How to Host a Killer Party. They are real gems and you won't be sorry. So, enjoy and I'll talk to you soon.
