    User Review  - Lauraley Dilgard - Goodreads

    I had fun reading this book while on a trip to visit relatives in New York. Anthing about Ghosts is fun. They had the TV series on tape so we watched them too while there. I would like to go back to New York and explore some of the locations mentioned in the book. Read full review
