Appeared to be an interesting concept but sorry, the author failed to pull it off. Perhaps if she hadn't been so flippant...I would think most people with the power to see the dead would also see their pain, confusion, and anger. One can hardly love a character that has little compassion for those seeking her help. Yeah I get it, it's suppose to be light hearted but you don't break the first rule of creative writing: make sure your readers actually CARE about your character. It is difficult to care about someone who seems to have little concern for those who come to her in desperation.
I was looking on Audible to see other books Lorelei King narrated and found this. Charley reminds me of Stephanie Plum. I didn't need time to get into the book as soon as i started listening I was hooked! If you like Janet Evanovich, Charlaine Harris, you'll like Darynda Jones new series!
I did not expect to enjoy this, since I don't do the
I love Lorelei King's narration!
must read: darynda jones, Karen moning, Ilona Andrews, kim harrison, gena showalter, Karen chance,patricia briggs,jeaniene frost ,L taylor,
when i first got this book i was just looking for something to listen to while i was waiting for another book to come out. what a nice surprise!!! at first when charley describes meeting...THE hot guy..he "threatens" her in a sexual way, for her own good i'm sure...ya know to get her out of there...blah blah blah...i thought this was going to be a cheezzzy romance (which i LOVE if that is what i am looking for at the time) but it was WAY MORE than that. it turned out to be a fun biting humor filled, sarcastic, paranormal romance, with a mystery. charley is a great lead female with a twist. This book is so worth the credit. LOVED the second book and can't wait for the third! get this one, you won't be sorry.
I could not believe how clever and funny this author was! There is a dark side with a good message. I haven't finished the series since Audible doesn't have the 3rd book yet, but I liked it so much that I will Kindle the book.
haven't read the print and don't need too.
waiting for number 2
that little something extra
made me laugh a lot
It may not be fair to rate this since I just couldn't keep interested enough to listen to the whole thing. Lorelei King does a great job narrating, but the comparison to the Evanovich Sephanie Plum series ends there. Maybe this would appeal to a young adult audience?
An innate Luv4Books! -Genres: Paranormal as my No.#1, some Contemporary Romance, and Young Adult that keeps up a niche for us Adults! ;)
I loved meeting all the characters, not just the main ones...I immediately became addicted to the story-line, the humor and the narrator couldn't be more perfect for this book!
this has to be one of my favorite and ranks up with Janet Evanovich.
She is hilarious!
When she is telling her friend/employee Cookie the
Wonderful book! Sexy, sassy and extremely humorous! I found myself laughing outloud in the middle of the street numerous times and it was kind of embarassing. Wonderful narration also! Lorelei King is a deep voice that none the less is able to differenciate among the various characters. Highly recommendable! I'm in the middle of
