Overview

Darwin Winters, reluctant pet psychic, is determined to leave her family's paranormal past behind and lead a normal life. So she strikes out on her own and opens up a new pet boutique in St. Pete, Florida. When a local homeless man she befriends is found dead, and the police assume it's a suicide, Darwin has no choice but to use her gift to help collar the killer.

She adopts his grieving mastiff, Karma-and with the dog's help-tries to piece together the events of that fatal night. Accepting the visions is one thing, but can she solve the mystery without revealing her powers to the jaded, yet drool-worthy, detective in charge of the case? Or will the killer put an end to her psychic sleuthing and bury the truth for good?

Meet the Author

Shannon Esposito lives in a magical gulf coast town with fluorescent sunsets, purple dragonflies and the occasional backyard alligator. Her mysteries transport readers to Florida without the hefty price of airfare. Although she knew from the age of five she wanted to be a writer, she briefly entertained the idea of being a scientist, until she found out it involved math, which gives her hives.

She shares this little corner of paradise with her husband, twin boys and dogs. If she's not writing, you'll find her coddling one of the above, hiding with a book or daydreaming with her toes in the sand.

A fun read! Darwin Winter has moved to St. Pete, Florida to find a “normal” life. This goal is thwarted when the homeless veteran she has befriended turns up dead. Darwin’s psychic connection with his orphaned dog, Karma, shows her that his death was not the suicide it appears to be. Her pursuit of her friend’s killer takes her on a wild tour of her new hometown that includes a tent city of homeless people, a posh penthouse with a to-die-for view and the dreamy eyes of a police detective. I hope we will be hearing more about this delightful heroine and her human and canine friends.

I absolutely loved this book. If your an animal lover (especially dogs) you'll love this series. The characters were easy to like, It gave me a whole new empathy for the homeless. This is a true heroine, with a lot of heart. I love the friendship between Darwin and Karma. Can't wait to read the next in this series. Shannon Esposito has a new fan.

I enjoyed this book and was surprised of who commited the crime at the end. A very cute book. It touchs on the lives of homeless in Pirate City and things that can happen. Darwin, the pet physic detective is a compansionate person that never gives up. It also remided us of the un-dying love a pet shows when they "find" you.

Escaping from a sheltered home life and a world were her family's unusual abilities make them different, Darwin opens a pet boutique with her dog groomer and friend, Sylvia. Her need to hide her ability to "read" traumatized pets gets more difficult soon after Darwin befriends Karma and his person Mad Dog, a homeless Gulf War vet. This talent leads Darwin in her search for the truth behind the murder of her new friend Mad Dog when Karma shares images with her that do not fit the official explanation of his death. Meet Will, the handsome detective, Frankie the homeless lottery winner turned flamboyant multimillionaire, Mac the unofficial leader of a homeless group, and Landon the handsome and mysterious magician. I can't wait for more books in the Pet Psychic series.
