I accidentally found a sample chapter of this book by Linda Welch on the Internet. Just a couple of paragraphs in, I was so hooked, I picked up my Kindle and downloaded it. Yeah, it’s that good.
The protagonist, Tiff, is a character who is easy to relate to. She has a job that doesn’t allow her to be herself. She has roommates who complicate her life. She has bad taste in men. But her job is pretending to be a psychic because she can see and hear the spirits of those who have died violently. Her roommates happen to be dead. And her taste in men? Well, you’d better read that for yourself.
This is a fun paranormal mystery that really keeps the suspense level high; I had no clue where the story was going. Besides being well plotted, the dialog in this book is delightful and feels very real. My only complaint is that the book was too short! I sat down to read and was done before I knew it. My only consolation is that this is the first in a new series. The first chapter from the sequel, The Demon Hunters, is at the end of this book and looks just as interesting. I am certainly looking forward to following this series.
