I like it because (1) she doesnt necessarily believe the investigator when he says he has never read her columns or came in with any other outside information. She doesn’t *not* believe him, but she doesn’t instantly run to the conclusion he’s psychic. (2) When the flashlights placed around the room do as commanded, she’s intrigued but not instantly sold on the haunting. (3) The previous owner said it was haunted and her initial reaction was, in essence, smile and nod. (4) She has the history of the house, the actual, real history- not the local legend or folklore.
