From National Bestselling author Jennifer Fischetto comes a hauntingly humorous new series…
Gianna Mancini has chatted with ghosts most of her life. It’s never affected her much. Until now. The latest ghost in Gianna’s family-centric, boy-complicated, job-depleted world is Emma Tinsdale, a woman Gianna despises. Wanting Emma out of her apartment and her orbit, Gianna chooses to help her move on, but she doesn’t expect to come across poisonous jam, a vengeful cop, or a group of friendly clowns. When a relative is framed for Emma’s death, Gianna must dig deeper and faster to find out what really happened that fatal night on the beach. With help from her sister, her cop brother, and her ex-boyfriend, Julian, she gets close to figuring out the truth. But when the killer closes in, Gianna better watch her step unless she wants to become the latest member of the dearly departed.
What I Thought:
It has been a while since a book has caused me to lose sleep, but this one did. I thought when I started it that I wasn't going to really like it, but, wow, once I got to reading it, I just couldn't put it down. I had to find out what was going to happen. This book had a lot of laugh-out-loud moments in it. There is also a lot going on and it keeps you guessing till the end. Gianna and her family could be pretty funny at times. Also, Gianna has a special, gift, she can see and talk to ghosts. That is gets her into some scrapes, but also helps her get out of some scrapes. I am so looking forward to the next book in this series, as this one left off with a sort-of cliff hanger. Great job Jennifer.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
