There something to be said when every editor, agent or publisher says they want to be grabbed by first chapter. Well CORPSE WHISPERER does it in the FIRST LINE: The corpse grabbed her arm with cool fingers.
There a few things you know right off, someone is dead and someone isn't, and any reader worth their salt would want to know who and why. What better reason to keep reading.
This author not only knows how to capture her reader's interest but to keep them interested and guessing at the same time.
Heroine, Grace Harmony has a gift and a problem. She can talk to the dead, but she's about to lose that gift if she can't solve a current murder. Because she has to travel back through time in order to get the facts involving Delores' death, little paradoxes are threatened because she already knows things from the future. Like the time she calls hunky Zach forgetting that she is not supposed to know his number and has to quickly come up with a believable reason as to why she has it.
The author's dialog is snappy, often humorous, but not trite or condescending. This suspenseful novel is a terrific read with engaging characters and I highly recommend it for mystery buffs as well as mainstream and other genre readers.
Here is only one example (and there are more): Zach learns Mark is renting the apartment Grace is supposed to rent, but he doesn't follow through and talk to Mark, as he should logically do to remain in character. Not only does he not tell Grace about it when she mentions Mark is in California, he doesn't even have an inner dialogue about it, as if he has forgotten. This takes place during one of Grace's "rewinds" (when she goes back in time) and can't be excused by the confusion which results from her several "rewinds."
Characters often contradict themselves and the plot is muddled. This gets worse toward the end. There is little mystery - the killer's identity is obvious from early on. The end is anticlimactic.
Formatting for Kindle is poor. Writing is choppy in some places. Lack of commas create confusing run on sentences. I didn't always know who was talking. Some sentences puzzled me as they didn't appear to relate to the book in any way.
Grace Harmony has the 'gift' of helping the recently murdered. She rewinds in time to stop the event happening.
The event this time has many many problems and she can't understand the things that keep going wrong.
She is likely to lose her ability when she turns 30 in a couple of days time so she really needs to save Delores.
I highly recommend this book.
I look forward to reading more from this author.
