Don of the Dead (Pepper Martin #1)
by Casey Daniels
What is it about:
Beautiful, smart, and chic, Pepper Martin never had to work a day in her life -- until her surgeon daddy was convicted of fraud, her wealthy fiancé took a powder, and the family fortune ran bone dry.
Suddenly desperate, the inexperienced ex-rich girl was forced to take the only job she could get: as a tour guide in a cemetery. But a grave situation took a turn for the worse when a head-on collision with a headstone left her with an unwanted ability to communicate with the disgruntled deceased . . . and now Pepper has a whacked Mafia don demanding that she hunt down his killers -- and threatening to haunt her until she does.
What did I think of it:
This is a fun read.
Pepper might be down on her luck, but she's resourceful and persistent. Even an annoying dead Mafia boss doesn't faze her. As she's both trying to find out if she's hallucinating and who killed Gus she gets herself into some humorous and sticky situations.
I really liked the writing style and the story. Even with a couple of close calls with bad guys, the story is light and fun overall, while still the mystery is intriguing enough to want to read on to see if Pepper figures things out.
All in all a quick and very entertaining read. I will most certainly get my trotters on the next book sometime.
Why should you read it:
It's a fun Paranormal Mystery.
