Moving from Wisconsin to sunny Los Angeles was the frosting on the cake of Annie Graceland's perfect life. Her boutique bakery business was blossoming and she was happily married to a handsome, ambitious actor. The only thing that got Annie in serious trouble was her smidge of psychic ability: feeling other people's sensations in her own body. She hated experiencing someone else's peanut butter addiction, foot fetish, or murderous rage. Thank God, her psychic curse only kicked in when she was stressed!
Annie discovers her husband is cheating with a famous self-help author. When the scribe ends up dead, poisoned with one of Annie's signature cupcakes, she becomes a murder suspect. Even worse, when his ghost doesn't pass to the Afterlife, he haunts Annie to find his killer.
Now she's stuck with the most irritating ghost in the world, and forced to infiltrate the lives of Hollywood's elite; the motley crew of suspects who wanted the know-it-all author dead. Can Annie solve the crime before she is whacked by the real killer?

Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.
This book has a lot going for it, however the writing style left me confused and irritated. Jerky and jumped around.
If you're needing something to listen to while not having to give it your 100% attention while, let's say, multi-tasking and year end sorting... it's perfect. Cute story.
I love a good cozy mystery or paranormal book. Some of my favorites are Dresden Files, Stephanie Plum, the Hollows, & Hannah Swenson series.
I liked the story. However, I did not like how the narrator screamed half the book. She gave several of the characters a harshness that I don't feel was entirely warranted given the story. She made them sound snarky & pissed off for much of the book. I got sick of having her scream in my ears & almost stopped listening because of it.
Take me away from the day's stress.
Her high pitched squels are too painful to listen to.
It would be cute ... along the same lines a Buffy the Vampire Slayer 2 1/2 Stars.
"Light hearted cozy mystery"
This is the first cozy mystery I've listened to by this author and it did not disappoint. It made me giggle in the car on the way to work and on the way home.
It's a light easy listen and good fun will definitely get more of these
