The Middle-Aged Ghost Whisperer #1
by Morgana Best
This one was a pretty quick read, didn’t take me more than an hour to read (mostly because I skipped through a lot of the scenes with Prudence’s annoying and obnoxious family and friends (other than Uncle Tim, who I really liked) that Prudence felt obligated to have over for Christmas. Prudence, who is a pretty straightforward no-nonsense person, puts up with her shockingly rude friends and family without kicking their rotten butts out of her house, especially Constance; I don’t know how Prudence can call Constance a friend, and I’d have happily punched her in the face every time she opened her mouth. Prudence, take a hint from your parents and go on a cruise next year.
I really liked Prudence, a psychic medium who had never seen a ghost until dead detective Levi showed up, imploring her to help with the case that got him murdered, a case involving an up and coming actor who died and the question of if it was a murder or a suicide. And I really enjoyed the plot and if the friends/family crap hadn’t been there and maybe a side plot added, it would’ve been a 5 star read; but with all the crap detracting from it, I can’t manage more than 3 stars, mostly because I liked the main plot so much. I’ll give book 2 a try, but if these mouthy people are in the next one, I’m going to give it a pass.
