Ciar Recommends: The Ghost Shrink, the Accidental Gigolo & the Poltergeist Accountant

14862This is the first title I’ve read by Vivi Andrews, and it won’t be the last, as long as she keeps writing! I can recommend this book (which I will call Ghost Shrink) without reservation. I don’t have an awful lot to say, as this book is short, and an extremely fast read. I was ultimately won over completely by the mention of Dozer from Ghostbusters. There are a lot of pop culture nods, actually, and they add to the unadulterated, unwatered-down fun of this very clever little book. Very clever. Vivi is simply really smart and really funny. I absolutely loved Lucy, the protagonist. She reminded me a hair of another Lucy for getting into trouble despite good intentions. Not to say this book is slapstick, it really isn’t. But it has silly moments, a few groaners, some fairly steamy lusting, and a nice dose of consummation. This is a tight package of humor, a bit of action, some steam, and more humor. I’m not sure this almost tongue-in-cheek style would suit a longer work, but I’d love to read a full novel by Ms. Andrews.

If you’re looking for a quick pep-me-up guaranteed to make you actually laugh out loud more than once, look no further than Ghost Shrink! To buy, you can start at Samhain Publishing.
It’s bad enough to be sexually frustrated. But as a medium, it means until Lucy Cartwright gets some, she’s doomed. Oh no, not to death. Worse. To nightly visitations by recently deceased, wanna-be Cassanovas without the bodies to back it up. Then a living, breathing fantasy arrives on her doorstep, and Lucy thinks her dry spell is at an end.

Much as he would like to be Lucy’s personal gigolo, PI Jake Cox has a job to do. He’s been sent to prevent her from getting laid until a particular horny phantom—and key witness in his mob investigation—pays her a visit. The real challenge? Keeping his own hands off Lucy long enough to get the job done.

Or the lonely, geeky ghost of a murdered mob accountant could rip a hole in the fabric of the universe…
