A Club, An Imposter and A Competition 

Deanna Oscar Paranormal Mystery 2

by CC Dragon

Deanna Oscar and friends are back again--having survived Hurricane Katrina, what could go wrong now? A murder, a visit from her family, and a fake psychic trying to manipulate the vulnerable citizens of New Orleans, to name a few. Add a nosy reporter who pits De against the imposter to solve the murder and De's life is as crazy as ever.  

She does her best to avoid publicity while trying to solve the murder and keep her family out of danger. The family wants her back in Chicago where it's safe. De is determined to set down roots in the Big Easy. Boring and average just isn’t her style!

A loyal Chicago girl who loves deep dish pizza, the Cubs, and The Lake! CC Dragon is fascinated by the metaphysical and paranormal. Loves creating characters, especially amateur sleuths who solve mysteries. Coffee and chocolate addict who loves fast cars. Still look for a hero who likes to cook and clean…so she can write more!


My Thoughts:

This was a cozy mystery. It was clean, cute, and fairly quickly read. 

It was engaging and I enjoyed it.

I feel the need to mention that while I did indeed enjoy it, it wasn't funny like I expected it to be. :-(

I received an ecopy in exchange for my honest opinion.
