Library JournalThirty-year-old Jen Hanby works as a Seattle barista. She’s celebrating her six-month anniversary with Arthur, a traffic cop, when she gets an inkling from her spirit guide that he may be cheating on her. Readers are quickly thrown into Jen’s complicated life when her half-sister is murdered, and their homeless, mentally ill father is considered a suspect. Jen is aided by Mallory and Beth, two high school girlfriends, and Mitch, the sexy guy she works with at the coffee shop, to figure out who the killer is. Roberts is also the author of the “Ghost Dusters” series (e.g., Drop Dead Beauty).
Verdict Roberts creates likable, believable characters with complex lives. The mystery has twists and turns that keep the reader engaged. Fans will be cheering for Mitch and Jen in the inevitable sequel.—Joyce Sparrow, Kenneth City, FL
