Cali¿s mother doesn¿t like to interfere in her daughter¿s love life. But after being dead for a month, she realizes that her daughter needs some help, and she¿s not ready to cross over until she sees Cali settled with a man she approves of. That good looking detective, Brit Lowell will fill the bill nicely, if that louse of an ex-boyfriend doesn¿t kill Cali first. Christie Craig has given us another fun read, with plenty of suspense, romance, and a chain-smoking cupid who just happens to be a ghost.

This was my first nook purchase on my new nook tablet and I am so glad I bought it! It was such an entertaining read. I plan to make Christie Craig a permanent author in my library.

A different twist to a murder mystery. I love the author's sense of humor. Fun reading.

I really enjoyed this book as well as all of Christie Craig's books, including her teen fiction under the name C. C. Hunter. Her characters are likable. The stories are interesting. And she uses a lot of wit and charm to tell the stories. She is on my list of must have / must read. Also recommend Jennifer Crusie.

This book gives your all the emotions! You will laugh, cry, and everything in between. It's a great mix of thoughtfullness, intrigue, and just plain human attraction as the two main characters each deal with their own grief while trying to solve the mystery. Christie Craig really makes you care about her characters and keeps you turning the page. You just have to find out what happens next.

I loved the mystery and crime parts and the steamy parts!

Craig seems to be an author you can depend upon for a good story and interesting characters. After reading three of her books, I'm starting to see a pattern, though. Are all her heroes horny cops? LOL! Anyway, despite that, it was hard to put down and very entertaining.

## At first I didn't think I was going to like this book. The hero was kind of an ass constantly checking out women and being a jerk to the heroine; and the whole smoking thing bothered me. However, I was wrong. Keep reading. The hero grows on you as does the dead mother. The murder mystery was suspenseful and there was even some humor in the story. I laughed and cried. Another great read by christie craig. If you haven't read her divorce series yet, they are even better.

I really enjoyed this book! It's a quick read with a little humor, mystery and romance in it. The "dead" mother is a hoot! If you're looking for a book with some light reading, I would recommend this one.

For mature readers (16+) Loved the humor, romance, mystery, story line and characters. I'm going to share with my friends that this one is a winner. It was a very fun read for adults. I say that because so many young girls ask in the reviews and I feel a responsibility to warn them and their parents when needed. They are only young once, they really don't need to grow up too soon.

Christie Craig is always a treat to read. She has fun characters that always have some unbelievable thing going on in their lives and you find yourself smiling, if not laughing out loud!

Suspense paranormal romance. Mama is a spirit who is haunting her daughter’s dreams, trying to protect and help her through danger. The daughter, Cali, has gotten involved with the wrong man. But is she any safer with the hard police detective who’s determined to find the truth? Two plotlines: a cop killer and a falling out among thieves. The ending was satisfying, but I didn’t like how the author structured it. All in all, though, this was an enjoyable read.

Really cute story with the romance combined with a little mystery! My only complaint is that I wish the ending were a bit more elaborate. I feel like the author got tired of writing and just wrapped it up real quick. However, I would say overall, this book is a really good read.
