She's betting on a ghost. And taking a chance on love…
Losing her memory in a mysterious tragedy years before left Mojo Sheepshanks not knowing who she is or how to get on with her life. Now the wisecracking Mojo, who hangs out at Bad-Ass Bert's Biker Saloon in Cave Creek, Arizona, suddenly begins seeing ghosts...and discovering clues to her real identity. Meanwhile, sexy cop Tucker Darroch has her heart racing and her passions revved up to maximum overdrive, but is it safe to let go and love the man? Really love him?
Everything becomes even more complicated when a wealthy man claiming to be Mojo's long-lost uncle turns up. Not only that, she's being stalked by her ex-con half-brother! As she and Tucker work to uncover the facts, she'll need all her savvy and strange new talent to keep someone from burying her - and the truth.

Good Books Don't Promote Violence
I really enjoyed Deadly Gamble, my first book by Linda Lael Miller. Mojo (28) was a sarcastic, amusing and endearing woman who decides to become a detective; Tucker was a hunky cop who managed to be both sexy and good-hearted.
I was leery when Mojo starts seeing dead people, but her "gift" was portrayed in a way that made it blend with the mystery, not overwhelm it. Mojo's friends, family and pets kept the story moving fast with lots of laughs.
