REVIEW*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
This book had me cracking up as the main character Jade tried to deal with her house guest and added company that was not invited. Her guest Gwen used to be a professor like Jade was enjoying scientific research and all that entails. When she shows up though she has embraced a New Age belief system and is totally inconsiderate of her host at every turn which makes Jade wonder what happen in the intervening years. Gwen tells Jade she is hosting a seance without asking then at the end she announces the exact way someone will be dying soon. Weirdly enough it happens and when all the dots are connected Gwen as the main suspect cannot leave town. What follows is a crazy crash test of an investigation that Jade stumbles through in an effort to get her house back. The evil cat made me giggle and so did all the crazy stuff Gwen kept doing though it all made the story move rather quickly until I found myself at the last page shaking my head at all of their antics. This is a well written cozy mystery that will provide a nice escape from the real world for a few hours. I really enjoyed it so it gets 4/5 stars.
