Just when things can’t get worse, a so-hot-it-should-be-illegal private investigator shows up on her doorstep looking for a neighbor…who turns up murdered.
Nick Santiago doesn’t play well with others. Unless the “others” are of the female persuasion. Wink. He’s a rebel, a black sheep, a man who prefers a buffet of options to being stuck with the same entrée every night, if you catch his drift.
When the pretty, possibly psychic Riley lands at the top of the list of suspects, Nick volunteers to find out whodunit. Only because he likes solving mysteries not because he wants to flex his heroic muscles for the damsel in distress.
All they have to do is figure out who pulled the trigger, keep the by-the-book detective with a grudge at bay, and deal with a stranger claiming he was sent to help Riley hone her psychic gifts. All before the killer discovers she’s a loose end that requires snipping.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
Riley is a “reluctant psychic” who gets drawn into a murder mystery and teams up with hottie detective Nick after she has visions of her neighbor being killed. Nick just kind of goes whichever way the wind blows, and isn’t a rule-follower. But when he meets cooky Riley, he feels an instant zap of chemistry.
Their chemistry is instant, and as they fake their way through a relationship while trying to solve the murder, lines get crossed and it’s hard to determine what is fake and what is becoming very real. Add in some zany family antics and a crazy cast of supporting players, lots of funny moments and plenty of sweet ones, and this story was a pleasant surprise!
