Publisher's Summary

Inconsistent psychic Leda Foley and Seattle detective Grady Merritt return to solve the case of a missing couple in this sequel to the “delightful” (The New York Times Book Review) mystery Grave Reservations.

When psychic travel agent Leda Foley is approached by a man searching for his sister, she quickly agrees to help. The missing woman disappeared with a vintage orange car, a fat sack of her employer’s cash, and a grudge against her philandering husband—a man who never even reported her missing.

Meanwhile, Seattle PD detective Grady Merritt has temporarily misplaced his dog. While he’s passing out bright pink “Lost” flyers at the Mount Rainier visitor’s center, the wayward pooch appears—with a human leg in his mouth.

Thanks to DNA matching, Grady learns that the leg has something to do with Leda’s new client, and soon the two cases are tangled.

Theories abound, but law enforcement is low on leads. Lucky for Grady, Leda has a few ideas that might just be crazy enough to work. They’ll need one yellow dog, a fair share of teamwork, and perhaps a bit of Klairvoyant Karaoke to piece the clues together in this “undeniable treat” (Gwenda Bond, New York Times bestselling author) of a mystery.

Great boo!

I stumbled upon the author’s first book in this series by happenstance, and as I flipped through the pages on my 14 hour flight, I was so glad I did. This second book’s storyline did not disappoint! Although it was a quick listen, the plot still managed to be funny and engaging. Nor did it lag unnecessarily.

The only negative critique was the narrator for the detective. The book is so quirky and upbeat, but his narration really dulled that down for me. By no means is he a bad narrator, but this book just wasn’t the right fit for his tone of voice and delivery. I found myself wondering, why we even needed 2 narrators.

All in all, it was a 4.5 out of 5. I am in love with the author’s writing style and the characters. I can’t wait for the next in the series.

The Male Narrator leaves MUCH to be desired, but good story.

The Male Narrator leaves MUCH to be desired, It’s a most unfortunate addition that will hopefully not be repeated in the next book. All of his female characters sound like strange High School movie knock offs. The saving grace for this book is the exquisite story line and subtle humor.

A very enjoyable read

I loved the first book in the series and have been waiting for this one. It has not disappointed. This is not a high drama/high stakes type of book. It’s an enjoyable mystery of a found body (part), a missing person case and the psychic travel agent working on both.

Well written and fun characters established in the first book return for a satisfying and enjoyable read.

Light listen

Entertaining story, great for light “reading.” Surprising to myself, I binged it. Left me curious if this is a series, reads like it could be

Not as charming and entertaining as the first book

The concept is fine and the cast of characters excellent. I enjoyed the first book in this series but this one not as much. The female star and her friend have devolved into using high school level dialogue and stunts that jeopardize themselves and the police case. The male cop has become a bit too laid back and accepting of the antics even though they put his job and case at risk. Hope next book upgrades the level of dialogue and has the two ladies show a more sensitive awareness of the impact of their decisions on others. I still plan on buying the next in hopes it is better than this one because I like the characters and the creative plots....and Seattle is my favorite big city in the US.

Another excellent book!

Cherie Priest has done it again. Another wonderful mystery with just enough fantasy to keep it very interesting. My only disappointment with this book is that the third one isn’t available yet well this book is a standalone. You also have to read the first one in the series grave reservations. Highly recommend! Definitely five stars.

Love this Series

I hope Cherie Priest continues to write more stories involving these characters! So fun to watch the interaction between Grady and his eccentric psychic songstress! Great combination of mystery and fun interaction. This book was no exception! Definitely recommend!

Sophomore outing was rather dry

You’d think a series with psychic karaoke would be funnier.
But, this felt more Murder She Wrote than Ghost Whisperer.

On the plus side:
The mystery was well plotted and the author is articulate.
I like the addition of the male narrator for Grady’s POV.

On the down side:
There’s very little action or thrills. All the characters are white. All the recurring characters are nice, flawless people. Even the “wild” BFF was so vanilla. While there wasn’t anything horrible about the book, there’s also nothing that really drew me in. I don’t think I’ll be continuing on with the series.
