America's Most Haunted Hotels by Jamie Davis Whitmer

I am a sucker for ghost stories especially ones by "ghost hunters" that are based on real experiences. I found this book to be very well researched and well written. I enjoyed how the author began by telling a bit about the history of the hotel and then led to the investigation which basically involved staying a night at the haunted hotel. I was very impressed by the idea of a husband-wife team with both writing separate feelings and observations after each investigation. I also appreciated how they didn't assume that every bump in the night was supernatural in origin. In general, they were either debunked or declared unexplained. Much research was done to learn more about a particular hotel's legends. One of the biggest bonuses of the book is that at the end of each section there is information on hotel prices, nearest airports, and ghost tour prices. I was so impressed with this book that I bought another book by this author. Don't miss this one if you love a good haunting investigation. I received a copy of this book for free from the publishers (thank you!) via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
