Publisher's Summary

They say there are blessings from Hurricane Katrina. For Viola Valentine of New Orleans, it was losing her dead-end job and leaving behind a loveless marriage and an overbearing family. 

But the storm also blew open a psychic door. Now, she sees ghosts who have died by water. 

As she enters her new career as travel writer, solving mysteries that appear with apparitions everywhere she goes, the one person she hopes to speak to - her daughter who died of leukemia years before - continues to elude her. 

Or does she?

Not for me

The characters were flat. I couldn't get into the story. The narrator didn't help. She read like she was in a race to finish.

An Entertaining and Emotional Story!

I was very entertained by this story. For much of it, the main character seemed so sassy and spitfire and in control, though she has built a wall so others can’t get close. Other times her spirit is broken and she loses control. It was great that the narrator could voice everything this character felt, as well as the supporting cast. This story made me laugh out loud but also feel pretty sad. I think the author and narrator did a great job. I hope there will be another audiobook that picks up where this left off.

Cozy Goes Edgy

This isn't your average cozy mystery by a longshot. Cherie Claire has given us a heroine with a heartbreaking backstory, who still plows forward through life like a woman on a mission to make it all mean something. The narrator has an unusual voice but the saving grace is this: Her Viola speaks like a real New Orleanian. No faux Cajun or faux southern speak. And for all her insecurities, Viola takes no grief from fools.
