Haunting Danielle is a series of novels written by Bobbi Holmes. The books are mysteries with a supernatural leaning.

+The Story

The Haunting Danielle books are the works of Bobbi Holmes. Some people have been known to presume that the books are written by Bobbi Holmes and Anna J. McIntyre, mostly because those two names appear on the covers of the Haunting Danielle series.

But if you look closely enough, you will realize that Bobbi and McIntyre are the same people.

The Haunting Danielle series tells the story of Danielle Boatman. Danielle was a fairly ordinary human being. She had the unique ability to see ghosts. It is an issue she had been dealing with for much of her life. It began when her grandmother died and then came to Danielle sometime after.

She might have struggled somewhat in the beginning but she came to terms with the gift and what it meant, and Danielle Boatman would have told you that she was living as ordinary a life as any other person.

But then her aunt passed on and willed the Marlow House to her. When the Haunting Danielle series begins, Danielle has it in her mind to take the house and turn it into a Bed and Breakfast. With her friend Lily in toe, Danielle packs her bags and moves into the old mansion.

The structure might have intimidated any other person, what with the disrepair that has manifested because no one has lived in Marlow House for nearly a century. But Danielle knows what she wants and she won’t allow the challenge of refurbishing the house to stop her from moving forward with her goals.

What becomes a notable challenge for Danielle’s sanity is Walt Marlow. The previous owner of the house, Walt Marlow is dead and he has made it his goal to haunt the house and its occupants. Anyone else might have gone running for the hills.

But Walt isn’t Danielle’s first ghost, and she is hardly afraid of him. Danielle is initially concerned with helping Walt pass over to the other side. Whatever his temperament, she knows that Walt will become a hindrance to the opening of her Bed and Breakfast.

Unfortunately for her, Walt isn’t interested in moving on, not until Danielle can figure out how he died. Walt’s death was ruled a suicide but he isn’t convinced. He puts Danielle to the task of finding his killer if there was one.

This puts Danielle in a difficult situation. Not only does she have to repair the house in time for the opening but she must also solve a decades-old murder, a task Danielle takes in stride.

If solving the mystery of Walt’s death was enough to give Danielle peace, then there wouldn’t be a Haunting Danielle series. But things do not work out quite as Danielle planned. For one thing, Walt slowly but surely becomes a common aspect of her life and the Bed and Breakfast, a development in the Marlow House’s legacy that doesn’t please him one bit.

More importantly, Danielle never seems to stay out of trouble. Sometimes it’s the ghosts that won’t stop haunting her, and not all of them are as friendly as Walt. Other times, it’s the living that are out to get her.

It doesn’t help matters that people keep dying around Danielle. And when people die, Danielle is the first person anyone ever looks at. Danielle puts herself in precarious situations because of her claims that she can see the dead.

More often than not, Danielle is just out to help. She wants to use her gift to solve the murders that take place in her community. But the police are more likely to suspect her for murder than to believe that the dead told her intimate secrets about the way they died.

In fact, some readers have complained that Danielle’s problems with the police become a little repetitive and tiresome after a while. Fortunately, as the series progresses, Danielle’s situation with the police starts to change.

The cops are still not quite on board with claims of Danielle’s gift. But they slowly but steadily begin to realize that she might actually be a good person, or at least good enough that she would never commit murder.

The Haunting Danielle series has been commended for boasting a smooth writing style that makes it very easy to read. The characters are the biggest draw; they are so three dimensional and entertaining follow that one cannot help but love them.

Most fans of Bobbie Holmes will tell you that they have continued to follow the Haunting Danielle series because of the thrill they get out of exploring the lives of the cast. One exception is Lily, Danielle’s friend who many a reader has described as being rather annoying.

The Haunting Danielle series is not a hardcore mystery series. However, even with the lack of complexity, there are enough twists and turns in the novels to make the mysteries entertaining. Bobbi is a great plotter.

+The Ghost Who Loved Diamonds

Danielle Boatman had a hard time getting her bed and breakfast off the ground. After inheriting the Marlow House, she had to first deal with the house ghost Walt and a peculiar mystery before she could move forward with repairs on the ancient structure.

As the grand opening of the Bed and Breakfast approaches, Danielle is certain that nothing can go wrong. But then Cousin Cheryl shows up and stakes a claim on her inheritance. Lily, Danielle’s friend, learns about the ghost in the house and a grand theft.

When blood is spilled, all eyes turn to Danielle who must solve a mystery before she is hauled off to prison.

+The Ghost Who Wasn’t

Danielle Boatman’s Bed and Breakfast is working as well as can be expected. However, Danielle cannot escape her ghostly problems. And this time, it isn’t just Walt the ghost that is complicating issues but one particular resident of the Marlow House, an individual who claims that he can see ghosts like Walt.

Danielle doesn’t know what to make of the medium. But she has more pressing matters in the form of a missing local heiress.
