Book Description

Book 1 in the brilliantly witty ‘Psychic Detective’ series from Angela Campbell – perfect for fans of Janet Evanovich & Stephanie Plum!

Hannah Dawson has a big problem: she’s just become the unexpected owner of a snarky cat, a loveable but not-so-bright dog… and their $10 million fortune!

Which would be awesome if it hadn’t made her the target of every wacko in the metro Atlanta area. Now Hannah and her famous pets need protecting and there’s only one man who can help them…

Enter Zachary Collins: ex-TV star of ‘The Psychic Detective’ and street-wise private investigator – all 6 foot blue-eyed gorgeousness!

Only Zach’s got secrets of his own – not least that he finds his new client irresistibly hot. The more time he spends keeping Hannah out of harm’s way, the more he’s tempted to give in to the attraction… even if it means breaking all his own rules.

Book one in an exciting new trilogy from the witty, wonderful world of Angela Campbell!

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun and fast read! November 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
“Whoever said money can’t buy happiness has never paid a shelter fee.”–Ellie

Zachary Collins isn’t proud of the fact that he faked being a psychic for a TV reality show and that he was so good at helping solve crimes that people believed him. When Hannah Dawson hires his security company to help protect two millionaires–the cat and dog in her care–Zach can’t say no. After all, unknown to Hannah, he unwittingly played a big role in ruining her life years before. While protecting Hannah and her pets, Zach gets two big shockers: first, he might actually be psychic when her pets start communicating with him and second, he might be falling for a client…

“This woman posed a serious threat to his vow never to fall for a client.”–Zach’s thoughts

This is a fast and fun read with a nice mystery attached to it. I loved the irony that Zach becomes an actual psychic after pretending to be one for so long, and as he laments–it’s for animals! I liked that little twist, and it was fun reading the pets’ thoughts. If you have a cat or a dog, you’ll enjoy the stereotypical depiction of a plotting and intelligent cat and a loving but dumb dog.

“This doesn’t mean I like you. It just means I’m cold, and you’re warm. Get over it.”–Abbott the cat

I really liked Zach’s character and can understand why he does what he does because of his background. Hannah is an all-around sweetheart, and it’s easy to see why Zach falls for her. Zach’s character seemed to be more fleshed out though, and I liked learning about his background, but there were some unanswered questions about his past that I was still curious about at the end of the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Something for everyone December 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Other reviewers have said this too - this book has something for everyone. A bit of a mystery, some suspense, humour, pace, and twists you don't see coming - and a whole lot of romance.

The paranormal aspects were very subtle so if you don't usually read paranormal, don't let that put you off!

Zachary is a yummy hero, but I really enjoyed that sometimes he needed to be rescued by his heroine. And I loved that Hannah wasn't a weak character waiting to be rescued either.

I read this book in one sitting, which is about the highest praise I can give any book. Angela Campbell's voice hooked me and I'm really looking forward to getting stuck into her next book, 'Something Wicked'.

4.0 out of 5 stars I liked it more than I thought I would March 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The animals make for interesting characters and there was a lot of humor. The bad guys never seemed all that scary, and every good guy is "man candy". I liked it in the same way that I enjoy a witty sitcom on TV. I liked it enough to immediately purchase the next book in the series. I am in the middle of that one, and it is just as enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun & Flirty, This book will make you smile! September 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is so entertaining, I really was captivated by the characters that the author Angela Campbell created. Zach, the psychic detective, is immediately likeable and from page one I hoped that him and Hannah would get together. But the real stars of this book are the adorable, funny and witty Abbott and Costello, Hannah's cat and dog. I just smiled the whole way through the book, it was extrememly easy to read, very well written and so lovely to read a romantic lovestory with a difference. I hope we get to see more from this little gang!

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun July 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I liked Campbell's voice as a writer and really enjoyed the humous moments of the book with the pets. These sets of dialogue were awesome! This love story is a madcap caper kind of romance-romantic comedy meets romance suspense.

While the book was fun, the characters did not really captivate me because so much of who they were was revealed in backstory rather than woven into the love story. The hero resists so much that I don't really get the falling in love feeling I so enjoy in books like this. I needed more of the relationship to really invest in this story.

I did like the secondary characters a great deal and will check out books about them that may come along.

I was given this book for my honest review. So, there you have it!
