Book Review: Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper

Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper (Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper #1)Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper by J.L. Bryan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I'm not a big fan of the paranormal genre, but I saw this on a free giveaway and thought I'd give it a try. I'm sure glad I did because it was a cracking read.
A young woman who has had horrible experiences with paranormal entities becomes a ghost trapper, ridding old houses of their spectral inhabitants. Her assistant isn't very useful, and there's a new guy on the team she doesn't trust. Also, it turns out fixing the problem only makes the problem worse. It's all told in a breezy, fun style that only occasionally gets horrific. It sure is atmospheric, though. The author really catches the flavor of the South without getting too much into Southern Noir. This is horror light, although it's never lighthearted.
I could have used some more depth to the characters and detail about all the occult stuff, but since this is the first in a long series I suppose we get more of that later. If you want an enjoyable, easy read that will keep you guessing and flipping pages, try this out.
