Synopsis:

Jade loves her new apartment–until a ghost joins her in the shower.

When empath Jade Calhoun moves into an apartment above a strip bar on Bourbon Street, she expects life to get interesting. What she doesn’t count on is making friends with an exotic dancer, attracting a powerful spirit, and developing feelings for Kane, her sexy landlord.

Being an empath has never been easy on Jade’s relationships. It’s no wonder she keeps her gift a secret. But when the ghost moves from spooking Jade to terrorizing Pyper, the dancer, it’s up to Jade to use her unique ability to save her. Except she’ll need Kane’s help–and he’s betrayed her with a secret of his own–to do it. Can she find a way to trust him and herself before Pyper is lost?

My Review: ✰✰✰✰

I’ve read a few cozy mysteries, but this is the first one with magic in it. I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to reading more of this series. The characters were fairly well developed and the story line was great. I had an idea from the beginning about part of the solution, but not the whole thing. There were some hints and indications about things to help figure the puzzle out. The solution did not come out of thin air at the end.

I loved the relationship between Kane and Jade. Both of them were a little bit shy about it at first, but that didn’t last long. They made a sweet couple. Not at all what you expect living over or running a strip joint in New Orleans. But with their powers, they each had been burnt before and were a bit leery of leaving themselves open to hurt again.

Now, Kane and Jade are at the center of a nicely mixed group of friends and coworkers that make up a “made family. They have interesting lines of work and they live in New Orleans. Seems like this series is really set to be fun and interesting. I’m definitely looking forward to getting into more of these books. Yes, I know it’s not a new series, but it takes time to establish a series. This one started in 2013 and has about 10 more books in it. It also has a related series. And with books in the 250 pages range, it’s a good read as well. I recommend this book to those of you who like your little magical stories with romance. And if you get hooked on the series, I really won’t be surprised.
