Review

A humorous, high-spirited romp told in a wisecracking voice; Yasmine Galenorn meets Sarah Strohmeyer. -- Lorri Amsden, Book Crazy Radio

After reading this, I'm looking forward to going along on Tildy's next adventure. -- Carol Costa, author of Love Steals the Scene

I laughed out loud. Tildy is a one of a kind detective in this highly original mystery. -- Kit Dee, author of Destiny's Warrior

A very funny and entertaining book. Tildy is a screwy psychic and unwilling detective who gets mixed up in an old murder case to rid herself of her live-in-ghost. She kept me laughing as she stumbled through to the end. I can't wait for her next case.

I loved the idea that someone else in this world loves chocolate as much as I do and is still able to function as a crime solving psychic. The writers did an awesome job of combining Arizona history with an interesting story of a ghost who needs his murder solved. The authors also threw in a good dose of humor as well as some of the Arizona landscape and setting the story in places that most of us can visit and become more familiar.

I would definitely recommend this book to others and have.

I love a good mystery and The Ghost Wore Polyester kept me guessing until the end. It also kept me laughing as the characters are wonderfully drawn and have that special charm that makes you sorry to see the book end. I highly recommend this book

This book was a fun read. Matilda is newly divorced starting her life over when she inherits her aunt's home and business. The home is haunted by a 70's disco wannabe news reporter. Matilda decides to solve his murder thus helping him to move on. The book is full of twists and turns and more surprises than just one murder. The best part of of the book though, is the humor. It was a LOL romp. I loved it.

The authors have done an outstanding job capturing the character's sense of adventure and fun spirit! The unique transition from chapter to chapter keeps the reader interested. I found it difficult to stop at the end of each chapter - I just HAD to discover how it tied to the next...

Great easy read - I'm looking forward to the next Tildy adventure!!
