When the body was found inside a Lincoln Continental on the grounds of Alison 's guesthouse, her resident PI ghost Paul was excited that they ow had another case to work on.

Since I ad n't read eithe of the numerous ooks, I never had no idea what Josh was like before he started helping out with th case, but unfortunately he was ever interested, so it was reall cool that Paul thought he coul find a good operative, lol.

I got a kick out of Paul going into her office and observing how she worked -- along with picking up tidbits about the case.

You have Alison Kerby running an inn on the Jersey shore which you would think is completely normal until you earn that ghosts live there and people actually go there to partake in that experience ...... Alison has the fortunate ( or unfortunate at times) ability to see and communicate with ghosts.

I love he fact that Alison, Melissa and Alison 's mother communicate with the hosts and Josh can not.

I love that Josh tries so hard to be nvolved in things and when he is inally ble to ommunicate with Paul via texting he is like a 5 year-old on Christmas Eve. I love that Paul can talk to other ghosts through the Ghosternet and love Maxie 's high energy even though she 's a ghost.Copperman takes a 40 year-old, cold case and makes it HOT!!

In thi latest, Bones Behind the Wheel, innkeeper Alison Kerby comments that " The National Language of New Jersey is Sarcasm. " That 's why I return to this series, for the humor.

Bones Behind the Wheel would n't e the tenth in a series if others did n't appreciat the umor, the mysteries, or the ghosts.Alison Kerby owns the Haunted Guesthouse, and, ven in November people come to stay, maybe to experience the ghosts, maybe to walk on the Jersey Shore.

ow, though, it 's Alison 's new wife, Josh, who is most interested in he case.
