Jo Wiley thinks she has everything she needs in her quirky but tidy life in Ljubljana.

Her teahouse is thriving. She's surrounded herself with chosen family and her friends, well... several of them come with benefits.

When a body is discovered at a glitzy party, Jo's carefully constructed reality starts to unravel. Her lover's murder lifts a veil on a hidden world of ghosts, demons, and forgotten gods where Jo is the link between this reality and the next. She may also be the reason her friends are turning up dead.

Jo has to use her new gift to find the killer, and fast, because there are worse things than dying.

Because Jolene Wiley is an American living in Slovenia, I instantly felt at home in the grand, old European City—Ljubljana. At first I was a tourist eavesdropping. Then WHO BY WATER drew me in with seamless dialogue as robust settings took shape and the storyline gathered momentum. Jo is realistic, interesting, and a likeable character—a free spirit. Because she is so real, her fantastical experiences with the dead flow with strength. It makes the web of mysteries even more powerful for readers who do not suspend belief easily. This author has a rare skill. The words fall off the pages as the reader melds into her world. Although character trait development is good throughout the book, I especially liked Jolene’s discovery process—how she learned to accept her gift. The balance between sleuth and vulnerability only magnified the suspense! I look forward to reading book two: OUR LADY OF THE VARIOUS SORROWS

first Im going to start with something that seems completely irrelevant: Ljubljana is really fun to say. The sound rolls around in my head when I read it. It took a hot minute to get used to the pronunciations, but once that was figured out, it was all good. Good story with plenty of "I did not expect that" moments to keep me reading, I was pulled in by the "whats going to happen next." On the one hand, I think I'd like to be Jo when I grow up, she handles her situation with an attitude that was both suborn and resigned. Then again, she has to deal with some stuff that I would nope right out of the country if I had to face. I look forward to the next book.

Jo Wiley is living a seemingly simply life in Slovenia when all hell starts to break loose--literally. Her friend is murdered, and ancient evil comes to town, and it turns out Jo can see the dead. Shocked to her core, Jo fights her new power only to discover she can't shake it and she shouldn't. The people around her need her and her new skills--no matter how shaky and uncertain--to help figure out what is going on. While evil walks the streets of Ljubljiana, Jo Wiley is stalking right behind it as she learn more about herself . . . and her friends? This is a beautifully written Contemporary Fantasy. Raschke's lyrical style will pull you in and make the town of Ljubljiana a living breathing member of the cast. Jo, too, is a fresh addition and not our usual heroine. Flawed and quirky, strong and bold when she has to be, she's easy to fall in step with and root for. Start reading this series now, you'll be glad you did.
