All that being said, this was more than a paranormal story. It was also a mystery. Arie took the only job she could find--cleaning up crime scenes once the police was through with the scene. This is when Arie discovered that she had a gift--seeing visions while either looking at blood or touching blood (scrying) about the victim. Arie got curious about the murder and started nosing around. She probably would have stopped but then someone she cared about became a suspect. From then on she was determined to find the real killer to clear that person's name. Of course the killer could not have that happen. I think I guessed everyone but the real murderer until the very end. Once the murderer was revealed, I instantly knew the "why". You will just have to read the book to find out what happened, who made it happened, and why it happened. Oh, and there was some humor in the book--I loved Arie's grandfather--there was more to him that met the eye. I only found one mistake in the book. It was toward the end when Arie was thinking about a couple of older women. She thought that they looked old enough to be "on Medicaid". There is a big difference between Medicaid and Medicare. Medicare is for the disable and for people older than 65. Medicaid is based on a person's income and mainly helps people who have children and are poor--does not matter the age. But a person can also have both--if they are over 65 and don't have a lot of income, then they not only qualify for Medicare (because of age) and qualify for Medicaid because of low income. So I think that the author meant to say they looked old enough to qualify for Medicare--and they sure were too agile to be disable.
There was very little foul language in this book and no sex scenes which I appreciated. I got this with my Kindle Unlimited account. I hope that there will be more books about Arie.
The story is fast paced, mysterious and at times laugh out loud funny. I love how even when Arie knows things really suck, she can still laugh at herself with her best friend Chandra. You run all the way to the end with Arie until she discovers the murderer and stuns you with the reasons why. The wild web Ms. Glaser wove lets the reader know there will be many more Arie books to come, and I, for one, can’t wait for Scry Me a River! After all, I have to know just what R.E. stands for and if it’s really as embarrassing as Arie wants us to believe.
Without rehashing the plot as others have done, I love how Arie (R.E.) handles her near-death experience and uses her scrying abilities to tackle the mystery. She's resilient and funny, and her job as a crime scene cleaner allows her to come in contact with the blood that initiates her special talent. Despite that her life is spiraling downward, she takes everything in stride.
Glaser has penned a plot that is both unique and inventive, and I was held captive by her storyline. Arie is a great character, and I can see her using her talents in future novels. I'm really glad I read A Scrying Shame and look forward to future works by this author. Highly recommended for those who like mysteries with a paranormal touch!
