Life is more difficult than ever at Savannah's only ghost-hunting detective agency.
While Ellie copes with her mentor's departure and other unwelcome developments, she also worries about the supernatural injuries keeping her boyfriend caught in an endless slumber.
At the same time, Ellie and Stacey are called in to investigate an eerie entity haunting a baby's nursery room.
The ghost appears late at night, its face barely visible on the baby monitor, and sings a chilling song.
Soon, Ellie learns there are more ghosts in the house, and at least one of them is a dangerous, child-hunting monster who must be stopped before it kills again.

Four stars: Another entertaining ghostly mystery, plus upheaval and conflict for Ellie.
After the latest confrontation with Anton Clay, Ellie nearly lost someone dear to her. She is determined now more than ever to catch the ghost who murdered her family and pushed her into ghost hunting. Unfortunately, Ellie's plans to capture Clay are thwarted by the takeover of her ghost hunting agency. Without Cal at the helm, Ellie finds herself pitted against a ridiculous, overbearing and sinister new boss in Cara. While Ellie is trying to figure out how to capture Clay and survive her nightmarish, new job, she is called out on a case, one that involves a terrifying ghost in a nursery. Will Ellie trap the ghost, save her loved one, survive her new boss and hunt down Anton Clay?
What I Liked:
- This seventh book is what I would term as the plot thickens book. There is so much going on in this one. Think conflict, conflict, conflict. If you haven't read the other books, go back and start at the beginning. This one ramps up several ongoing story lines, and leaves you anxious for more.
- Even though there is a great deal of conflict and turmoil in this one, I enjoyed the story. I was wondering how Ellie was going to get a handle on all the turbulence she was encountering. If you think she had it rough before, it is threefold in this one. The Lullaby Ghost was bad enough, but her nasty boss, Cara, takes the cake. It was exciting to watch Ellie navigate through it all.
- As always, the ghostly mystery presented in this one, was steeped in history, and I enjoyed learning the story behind the haunting. There were some unexpected twists and surprises at the end regarding the Lullaby Ghost that I didn't see coming. Definitely some gotcha moments.
- The ending is fast and furious, and there are many questions left hanging, but at least the main story line regarding the Lullaby Ghost is concluded, but there is still so much left unfinished. I need the next book right away.
And The Not So Much:
- I was left wanting more. I was especially upset that there was no movement or resolution with Michael. I need to know what is going to happen with him.
- What was the deal with Cal? I found it a little strange that he just disappeared during the takeover.
- I hate the new ownership, and I want Ellie to stick it to them one way or another, especially Cara.
- Even though I liked the twists and the reveals regarding the Lullaby Ghost, I felt like the came out of nowhere, I wish that there was more insight in how Ellie and Stacey came to the conclusions they did regarding the ghost.
Lullaby is a book that notches up the conflict and turmoil. This is a book that will have you on the edge of your seat as you watch Ellie navigate the huge hurdles in her path. I am loving the way this series is developing, and I continue to enjoy each and every installment. If you haven't tried this series, I ask you, why?
