Publisher's Summary

A murder at a costume party. A boat full of suspects. What will she do when a body drops and the masks stay up?

Pet psychic Jolene could use a break from hiding her flawed powers. So, when her cop crush and his lie-detecting dog invite her to a masked Policeman’s Ball on a boat, she dives in head-first. But the problems from her past return when the officer of the year turns up dead.

Working to lay bare the murderer, Jolene discovers that both the man who broke her heart and the woman who cursed her are onboard and engaged to be married. But her troubled history threatens to blow her cover as she combs through a conga line of potential culprits, including the ghost of a deceased sea captain.

Can Jolene expose the cop’s killer when she’s still under a crippling curse?

Game of Bones is the third book in the playful Magic Market paranormal cozy mystery series. If you like charming characters, surprising twists and turns, and enchanting seaside settings, then you’ll love Erin Johnson’s mystical tale.

winning writing & performance

I've read all of these books already and enjoyed them so much that it was an easy yes to add the audio to my collection. Hannah does such a wonderful job performing Erin's books and listing to her "speak" animal makes me giggle. Its not often I want to re-listen or read a cozy book but Erin's writing & Hannah's performance happily bring me back like re watching my favorite sitcom. These stories remain entertaining, funny and feel comfortable at the same time. Seriously, my favorite kind of cozy.

A policemen's ball, a death, a casino and more

I love this series. Erin weaves a very compelling story as a fallen from grace lawyer now in a magical slum becomes a police consultant. It has the best parts of murder mysteries mixed with the best parts of a magical world. As a recent law grad, I also love the legal references. This mystery has a good hook and keeps you guessing along the way as interesting people are introduced. The story even gets around the gritty downside of audio mysteries by having its own local sets of curses so that profanity isn't off putting or even horrible. There is no traditional profanity and even my kids love to hear the story about Joleen :)

I love the investigation into the death of a rival officer. Peter puts his best foot forward to deal with the problems caused by an officer's death.

lies are catching up to Jolene

Game of Bones is the third book in the Magic Market paranormal cozy mystery series.
This series gets better and better. We learn so much more about Jolene and her life before her fall.
Jolene has grown as a person since she lost her job as a lawyer, lost her magic powers and moved back to the Dark Moon District.
Looking forward to see if her relationship with Peter blossoms or wilts. Will Peter ever know the full truth? Tune in to find out.

Thanks Erin Johnson for writing an entertaining story.

Another wonderful listen

I'm loving this series. Peter asks Jolene to be his date for the policeman's ball for a night of fun, The night isn't quite the fairytale that she'd hoped for as individuals from her past keep popping up and she has yet to divulge all of her secrets to Peter. Will the lovable police officer be able to accept her for who she really is? Jolene and Daisy's snarky banter is always good for a laugh as well.

Lies are catching up with Jolene

Did I say I love these books? Shell yes, I did. Jolene and Peter are off to the policeman's ball in this book and it's a date. Thank goodness, it's a masquerade, because Jolene runs into her former fiance, former boss, and the 'beach' her cursed her. The winner of the policeman's award of the year never makes it to the podium to accept because he's being fished out of the sea. Jolene and Peter start to investigate but run into trouble with their relationship (personal and professional) because she is lying about a number of things which, Daisy, the lie-sniffing dog continues to rat her out. Speaking of rats, Ludoff (sp?) the head shifter has finally gotten wind of Jolene working with the police and threatens Peter if she doesn't help him. What will she do? Is it time to come clean with Peter? You'll have to listen to it to find out. I can't wait to read #4.

Very entertaining

Such a fun story and the narration lifts this story to the next level.

Ooh, Jolene is in a right pickle. At the policeman’s ball there are people from her previous life… who could out her as a lowly shifter… Snakes! This is not going as it should!

A lot is happening, and not all to do with the investigation! Jolene’s life is never boring! And neither is this book. Fast-paced as ever, full of humor and very entertaining. Will Daisy sniff out the truth?

Murder game

Wow I love this series. I was really looking forward to this book coming out, having listened to the previous two books and listened to the preview at the end of the last one I was excited to listen to this book. It didn't disappoint. The characters are what makes it such a fun and quirky series (and a must listen) and I really like the way the relationship between the two characters is developing and of course the fun with the animals. The mystery was good and I didn't work out who the killer was. Can't wait for the next book to come out to see what more trouble Jolene can get herself in.
Jolene has trouble saying no to the handsome cop which is why she finds herself attended the policeman ball, the ball her ex co-workers and ex fiance will also be attending. The only good thing is, is it is a masquerade ball and down on her luck pet psychic Jolene looks a lot different now compared to her high powered lawyer suits. Nobody will recognise her, right. If only that was the worst thing she had to worry about. While at the party the officer who is being recognised for his brave work is murdered and Jolene finds herself once again acting as a consultant for the police. She can't possible keep her two worlds apart as she investigates, especially as one of the first people that needs interviewing is her old boss. Torn between helping the handsome cop and keeping her secret Jolene must pull of a miracle, to bad she is the only one in Bejumere that can't use magic.
I really like the narrator she is so bubbly that you can't help but get swept up in the story too.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
