Ghost Huntress Book 2: The Guidance by Marley Gibson
Release Date: Available Now from Graphia
Kendall and her ghost hunting team is the talk of Radisson, Georgia, but one person isn’t so pleased. Courtney Langdon doesn’t appreciate Kendall’s new popularity or her relationship with Jason, Courtney’s ex.
So Courtney begins dabbling in the paranormal world. At first it’s all a game to draw attention away from Kendall. But Courtney doesn’t know what she’s getting into—or what wants in her. This is one game that’s about to turn deadly serious.

I am definitely a fan of this series. You can read my review of the first book, The Awakening, here. I love shows like Ghost Hunters, or the Supernatural version, Ghostfacers, so this series about ghost hunting teens is right up my alley.
Kendall is a great character who is struggling with her new found psychic gift. Her religious mom is skeptical and makes Kendall seek professional help. In this outing we get to see Kendall's interaction with the doctor and her feelings as she goes through different tests and starts to doubt herself a little.
We also get to learn more about Kendall's friends, especially goth girl Becca who has a very different hidden past. The main storyline revolves around Kendall's arch nemesis Courtney, who is trying to make her life a living hell. When Courtney gets into trouble, Kendall has to find a way to help her even if it means making herself a target.
I love reading about all of the ghost hunting gear and the southern setting is perfect for this kind of tale. The interactions between Kendall and her friends are great. The only complaint I have, and it has nothing to do with the writing, is that I really don't like Kendall's boyfriend Jason. He just seems sort of whiny and never really gives her a break.
I am really looking forward to the next book in this series, especially since this one totally cliffhangered (completely not a word) us in the end. Keep 'em coming Marley and I'll keep reading them.
