Overview

Annie Graceland's a baker with a pinch of psychic ability. She's a midwestern girl who's surviving a divorce while navigating the mean clean streets of L.A. When stressed, Annie’s psychic gift/curse kicks into high gear. She’s empathic; feels other people’s lusts, urges and desires in her own body. Usually it's simple -- someone's craving chocolate, or lusting after the wrong guy. But since Annie discovered she can see and talk with ghosts, her life became a little more complicated.

Annie’s re-entering the dating world and her friends push her to "sex-up," her wardrobe. At Snotsky's Department Store sale, Annie meets and squares off against the world's most obnoxious clerk: Edith Flowers. When Edith’s murdered and doesn’t pass to the After-Life, Annie agrees to investigate her demise. With Edith's help, Annie infiltrates the crew of Snotsky's suspects. Was the killer the new manager, the archrival in cocktail attire, the bra fitter? Will Annie solve Edith's murder so she can go to the light? Will she find anything new to wear that she can afford? Can Annie resolve her latest debacle before hottie Detective Rafe Campillio finds it odd she keeps showing up at murder scenes?

Bonus: First chapter excerpt from Cupcakes, Pies, and Hot Guys! (Next novel in the series.)

Product Details

Meet the Author

Pamela DuMond is the writer who discovered Erin Brockovich's life story, thought it would make a great movie and pitched it to 'Hollywood'.

She's addicted to The Voice. The movies Love Actually and The Bourne trilogy (with Matt Damon -- not that other actor guy,) make her cry every time she watches them. (Like -- a thousand.)

She likes her cabernet hearty, her chocolate dark and she lives for a good giggle.

When she's not writing Pamela's also a chiropractor and cat wrangler. She loves reading, the beach, yoga, movies, animals, her family and friends. She lives in Venice, California with her furballs. If she ever gets her act together, she might even blog more often.

Visit her website at www.pameladumond.com for news, reviews and info on upcoming books and whatever else is up there.

Hey! Like her book covers? You can hire her book cover designer - Michael James Canales - www.mjcimageworks.com
