Enjoy a “second helping” from the obstreperous creature that romped so riotously through The Pig Did It with this sequel The Pig Came to Dinner.

All of the charming characters of the previous story are also present again: Kitty McCloud and her new husband/former blood enemy Kieran Sweeney have bought an ancient Irish castle with the profits from Kitty’s popular revisions of classic novels like Jane Eyre. Kitty’s American cousin, Aaron McCloud, has arrived to visit with his new wife, the former swineherd Lolly McKeever. With them is a troublesome and unwelcome pig, a wedding gift they are redelivering to Kitty and Kieran.

But over the resulting lighthearted discord hangs a weightier problem: Kitty’s new home is inhabited by a pair of ghosts from out of the castle’s troubled past. How this haunting couple is dealt with serves only to embellish the allure and humor of Mr. Caldwell’s uniquely theatrical storytelling.

    " I did not enjoy this as much as the first book in the trilogy, The Pig Did It. That was humourous and eventful. While this is a well-written book, the tone is more serious, or at the least the characters were far more introspective, and obsessive, obsessive at least with their ghostly problem. I was looking for a blast of an ending and was left with a feeling that the story didn't really end at all. I must have missed something because I didn't see a real resolution. Perhaps the last book in the series will not leave me feeling so bland. "

    " Newly-wed life-long enemies Kitty McCloud and Kieran Sweeney have moved into Shaftoe Castle, cursed by the unjust deaths of two young people at the hands of Lord Shaftoe hundreds of years before. They are surprised to find the ghosts of the dead youth and girl haunting the castle, and even more surprised when they each realize that they have fallen in love with one of the ghosts. Then the current Lord Shaftoe appears, claiming that he alone owns the castle. Can Kitty and Kieran leave their beloved ghosts to the heir of the man who killed them? Or can they find the gunpowder said to be hidden in the castle and blow it up, setting the ghosts' spirits free? Second in the trilogy. "
