Publisher's Summary

In the first of a thrilling new series, one woman's extraordinary psychic gift plunges her already troubled present into chaos - and puts her future in someone's deadly sights....

Until now, Odessa Jones's inherited ability to read emotions and foretell danger has protected her. But second sight didn't warn her she would soon be a widow - and about to lose her home and the catering business she's worked so hard to build. The only things keeping Dessa going are her love for baking and her sometimes-mellow cat, Juniper. Unfortunately, putting her life back together means taking a gig at an all-kinds-of-shady real estate firm run by volatile owner Charlie Risko....

Until Charlie is brutally killed - and Dessa's bullied coworker is arrested for murder. Dessa can't be sure who's guilty. But it doesn't take a psychic to discover that everyone from Charlie's much-abused staff to his long-suffering younger wife had multiple reasons to want him dead. And as Dessa follows a trail of lies through blackmail, dead-end clues, and corruption, she needs to see the truth fast - or a killer will bury her deep down with it.

Boring

This story dragged so much that I fell asleep twice while listening. The narrator's voice just bored me to sleep. I've read books by V. W. W. & they've always been full of action and very entertaining.

Very good mystery beginning series!

I truly enjoyed this quaint little mystery. Easy and pleasing break from a tough day. Narrator has a likeable voice and did fairly well transitioning among characters. Also a brewing romance in the background story. Looking forward to future books in audible continuing this series!!

Glimmer of a Story

Cardboard characters uninteresting story and totally predictable. The characters are under developed and so naive. I kept hoping for something to happen, but it never did and ended flat.

3 and a half

I simply couldn't get into this book. I didn't really care about the characters and I lost interest.

Not the best

This is a boring book that just kept going on and on. I figured out the murderer real soon in book and had to listen until the end. Ms. Blue wasn't the best narrator. I gave the author two stars for writing book.

Great Read

I really enjoyed this book. The details and narrative made me really feel I was there in real life. I can't want for the next ones in the series to come out on Audible.

A Bit Weak

I could barely finish this, mainly because of the the narrator's voice--kinda of shaky.
