While a little on the goofy side. It's a good book and a quick read. Tizzy, who just happens to talk to dead people? finds a dead body at her husband's grave. "Trooper Cooper" is a Texas Ranger brought in to solve the murder. It will keep you at the edge of your seat and in stitches at the same time. Only issue I had was there seems to be a lot of sex through out the book.

It's ... ok

Note: I listened to the audio version of this book and it was provided at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via AudiobookBlast.

Approximate score: 2-2.5 STARS

This book was advertised on AudiobookBlast as a "Mystery" - and it was ... sorta. But the primary plot was more centered around the romance between the two characters, and because of that the book was longer than it really needed to be; extra scenes were thrown in that didn't really serve much purpose plot-wise (for example, the skunk scene). The characters also lacked depth - they felt stereotypical and didn't really pull me in. The ending was rushed, cliched, and not all that surprising or suspenseful. The hint of supernatural (that the female protagonist could hear the dead) was barely there and not all that intriguing. It's unfortunate because the premise of this story was decent and I think it could have been more effective if the characters and plot had been fleshed out a bit more. The narrator did an OK job (and pretty much nailed the southern accent part), but the performance of certain scenes felt wooden and monotone.

Bottom line: if you go into this book looking for a supernatural mystery, you'll be disappointed; it's mostly a (not-all-that-compelling) romance story with a small sprinkling of mystery and a grain of supernatural.
