Editorial Reviews

Review

"The author did a wonderful job of keeping the story moving, while developing characters who were interesting and believable." --Feathered Quill

"This is a good book for mystery lovers who like a touch of the supernatural, like cozies, or who simply enjoy a well-crafted mystery." --TCM Reviews

"Author Lynn Osterkamp created a plot filled with twists, turns and surprises placing Cleo, Angelica and Lacey in the direct path of a clever murderer." --BookPleasures

"Just enough of a paranormal touch to make the story extraordinary. I highly recommend this novel."
--ReaderViews

"A fantastic read! This book is as good as it is spooky! Pick this one up! -- Kitty Bullard, Goodreads.

From the Author

I've asked some readers who love my mysteries what they like and why they read them. My readers are puzzle solvers who like to try to figure out who did the murder. They like to be kept guessing throughout, and they like to be surprised in the end. They like interesting, complex characters; a variety of suspects who have believable motives; and a setting that draws them in and gives them a flavor of the local culture.

New age grief therapist finds herself in over her head in the investigation of the death of a wealthy community leader. Actually she didn't "find herself" involved, more she made several questionable judgments working with grandchildren who think the death was not the accident ruled by police. Guided by a heart of gold (and visions of a surfer dude providing cryptic guidance) Cleo gets entangled as did this reader. She is an overachiever set in with lots of real characters, twists and turns.

Grounded in solid research the reader learns about Indigo children, grief therapy, hikes in the Rockies. You can even find some lively spots to visit on the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder and learn about prairie dogs (only in Boulder). Descriptions are quite real (except hopefully not many residents get involved in murders and not many adult children are struggling to find a good nursing home for a parent).

The mystery is classic in leaving the reader in suspense about how the truth will come out and "who done it". I didn't want to put it down but my plane ride ended and I was exhausted so I picked it up again first thing next day. (Good thing it was a weekend trip.)

This book was a giveaway won through Libary Thing.

This book is the second in the Cleo and Tyler mysteries. Cleo is a pyschotherapist who specializes in grief counseling but with a supernatural twist ... she has a spirit "surfer dude" who often appears with cryptic messages which she has to interpret herself.
Cleo decides to help two girls whose mother has died and whom the 10 year old believes has been murdered. As she becomes involved in the family's drama, Cleo is also trying to deal with moving her grandmother from her current nursing facility because the facility is closing.

This is a great mystery and Cleo is a strong woman who follows her convictions in spite of warnings from her best friend and the man she is dating. In solving the mystery of the mother's death, Cleo also manages to obtain the money she needs to transfer her grandmother to a facility that will take good care of Gramma who has Alzheimer's disease.

I especially like the author's inclusion of the supernatural in a very believable and professional way. The author cites as references some notable and well respected works concerning death and the afterlife.

I already read and reviewed the first book of the "series", "Too Near The Edge". I gave that 4 stars but I'm giving this 3 stars, even though the style is little changed. And that's why: it continues with way too much description of clothes and food, and way too shallow a description of Tyler the surfer guy. Why even include him in the series title, since he contributes so little?

The author can and does put prose down well, and is good at description. But she spends too much time in descriptions, and not enough time in action. As a guy, I want more action, more plot twists, more surprises.

I'm now reading "The Lincoln Lawyer" series by Michael Connelly. What a difference! This and the other Cleo & Tyler book are ok, even good at times, but compared to an excellent detective novel don't hold up. Still, at the price ($0.00 and $0.99) you can't go far wrong.

I hope the author continues the series, but removes a lot of description, adds more plot turns, and gives Tyler some substance. Otherwise these don't have a ghost of a chance.

I reviewed and very much liked The first book in the series "Too Near The edge," and was curious how well the main characters and the themes would carry over. I'm happy to say, reading this book was like getting together with a good friend after a lengthy absence. It was comfortable, easy to get into and built nicely on the first book. While reading this without having read the previous book would be an enjoyable experience, I strongly encourage potential readers to start with "Too Near The Edge" so they will get full enjoyment out of book two. I revently introduced one of my pickier library patrons to the first book and she is eagerly awaiting the second to hit the library shelves. This is a good book for mystery lovers who like a touch of the supernatural, like cozies, or who simply enjoy a well-crafted mystery.

grief therapist, part-time professor of paranormal psychology and creator of the Contact Project to do when her spirit guide, Tyler, who imparts his on-the-other-side wisdom through surfer lingo, tells her - she must help that little girl ride those mean waves? Take the case, of course! Even though Cleo is put-off at first, she keeps happening to be in the right place at the wrong time and becomes intrigued with the 'accidental' death of Mirabel Townes.

This mystery keeps you guessing to the end!

Osterkamp has a prequel - Too Near The Edge (Cleo & Tyler Mysteries) that is mentioned in this book. You don't need to read that one to enjoy this one, but if you like this one, I'm sure you'll end up reading that one.

I couldn't finish this book. On my Kindle, I got thru 35%, but kept FALLING ASLEEP.
Someone else mentioned excessive descriptions of food and clothing. Is THAT what was making me sleepy?
Anyway, I'm about to give up on this one.
I think I'll just sneak to the end to see "who done it".
:>)
Edit:
Okay ... skipped to 54% - - still boring.
