  • Ami
    This is one occasion where I actually took time to re-read the first book before jumping on the sequel. I usually don't do that because I'm not very much a re-read kind of girl. But I practically read the first book almost a decade ago, and I thought, well, I needed a "refreshing course" on Nick and Perry.Now, I'm not sure whether THAT is a good thing to do now, after I finished. On one hand, I thought Lanyon was able to keep the same "tone" of t...

    The Ghost Wore Yellow Socks was one of the earliest Lanyon books I read, after Fair Game and the Adrien English series. I adored Perry and really liked Nick. The atmosphere of the old house full of crazies was perfectly written and eerily portrayed, and the mystery was engaging and just as zany as the people in the house. I've read that book at least three times and enjoyed it more each time.However, it wasn't a book or a pairing that was crying ...

    I approached this warily, seeing no need for a sequel, but having loved the first book so much -it was my first Lanyon and a genre I enjoy- I wanted to read it. And, I still don't think the first book needed a sequel. This doesn't offer anything more.The first 20% could have been condensed into one page. I was struggling, wanting the story to progress but instead being treated to Perry telling me what Nick must be thinking then Nick's concerns fo...

    Heart-breakingly average after years of waiting...After a chance meeting with terrorised senior citizen and retired Hollywood star Horace Daly, Perry enlists Nick’s help in solving the mystery of who’s trying to kill Horace set against the backdrop of a crumbly, gothic hotel. Now. The writing, as always, is skilled. The mystery was well thought out. The romance was kind of sweet at times but lacklustre at best. There was no real character dev...

    Disclosure: I have read reviews before reading this book and the book itself was a loan from a book friend. Several more or less recent books by this author were not exactly hits for me, let's put it this way so I worried and I read reviews and I worried more and kind hearted friend offered to loan the book. Thank you Linda. I wanted to love it though, darn I wanted to love it.I have reread the first book before starting this one as well, and wha...

    Perry and Nick are the best. A fascinating whodunit. I'll probably write a longer review at a later date.

    3.5 starsI'm not a big fan of sequels and established couples so my rating reflects that rather than some huge literary disappointment. It was an enjoyable enough read as far as cozy crime novellas go. ; )
  • Giedre
    I'm not the biggest fan of the first one, but I did enjoy it. This one, however, just felt really lackluster. And, in my opinion, this sequel wasn't really necessary in the first place. Anyway, The Ghost Had an Early Check-Out isn't a horrible read, but it does feel filler.

    Don't get me wrong; it was a good short story. Keyword short. It was nice to see Nick's love for Perry and Perry was sweet. But after TEN years between books, I read this in one work day! I just wanted it longer.
