Book Description

Hell on wheels or a psychic in a travel trailer? Brianna Sullivan gave up her job finding missing luggage for the airlines in order to seek the freedom of the open road. Her first stop? The small town of Lottawatah, Oklahoma. Using her psychic abilities, Brianna takes on a multitude of jobs to earn gas money, help out the local police detective, and direct some troubled souls towards the light. Volume 1 of this series by Evelyn David contains two short stories - I Try Not To Drive Past Cemeteries and Dead But Not Buried in Lottawatah.

Editorial Reviews


I enjoyed both short stories where Brianna proves that a young man did not kill his grandfather and the second where things are not as they appear with Miss Rosie. My rating: 4 stars

So glad to discover a new (to me) author and series besides. I am avid reader and love this book. Am already on next one. Laugh and be held in suspense until the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Psychic Sleuth Takes Small Town by Storm October 30, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Funny wise cracking psychic Brianna is enjoying traveling in Matilda, her motor home, when she stops for pie and ends up solving a murder in "I Try Not to Drive Past Cemeteries," the first in this delightful series. Brianna is waylaid by a ghost who gets her attention with blackberry pie. She tries to pass along the messages from the murdered victim speaking to her to doubting Detective Cooper Jackson but he is almost as stubborn as the ghosts who pursue her. The police have the wrong man, but readers will enjoy Brianna's humorous asides as much as the mystery. The sparks fly among Brianna and Coop, even if she doesn't want to admit it: "Love? Probably just the chili I had for lunch."

In "Buried but not Dead in Lottawatah," Brianna begins her story while lying in manure after being shot at while working in the garden. A Civil War soldier comes to her for help, and Detective Cooper Jackson returns doubting not just her otherworldly senses but her story about being shot. The warm, funny tone pervades this well written series. Even the chapter headings will make readers smile as they puzzle out which of the crazy cast of characters is to blame for crimes past and present.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly a wonderful find February 24, 2012
By Tina
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Brianna Sullivan is a laugh a minute with her nonchalant acceptance of the ghosts who seek her help. It is a quick read, and I was glad, because, while I was sorry for it to end, I simply couldn't put it down until I had finished it. I picked this up as a freebie, but now I am hooked and can't wait to read more about this engaging mobile home psychic. I'm hoping her budding relationship with the detective also develops. Thank you Evelyn David.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brianna Sullivan is a Fun Read February 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Evelyn David's I TRY NOT TO DRIVE PAST CEMETERIES may be the funniest read I've had in years. Seeing ghosts who find a home in her motor home and falling for an imperfect man, Det. Jackson Cooper keeps the laughs rolling for Brianna Sullivan.
There are two shorts in this selection, the second Buried BUT NOT DEAD IN LOTTAWALCH, OK has all the elements of the first. There is no stopping fans, these are must read to the end.
I'm off to get the next in this delightful series.
Nash Black, author of SANDPRINTS OF DEATH.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for me.
Too much woo-woo. Sorry, I thought I would like something different, but this was too different.

3.0 out of 5 stars A nice couple of novellas
An interesting main character and some good humor. Both stories are a bit thin on plot, but the author definitely shows promise.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Very Funny
A good story but slow moving. Characters are ok, but nothing special about them.
The ending just comes out of the blue and the words "the end" is there.

5.0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTELY FUN -
The book is fun from beginning to end. Brianna is the kind of woman every woman wants to be, smart, brave, funny and able to hear and see ghosts. What's not to like? Read more

When I saw this book for free, I almost didn't even get it then. Something about the title and cover I thought seemed a little cheesy. Boy am I glad I bit the bullet. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars A ghostbuster Stephanie Plum!
I laughed and laughed at this story. Brianna Sullivan is a "ghostbuster" Stephanie Plum. I can't wait to read more of the series.
