Paranormal Romance, Romantic Comedy
Kandi Cain inherited her Dr. Doolittle abilities from her grandmother and became a psychic pet detective. To her dismay, she just acquired the power to communicate with the spirit world, but dead people give her the willies.
Just when Kandi thought her life couldn't get more complicated, the neighbor from hell moved in next door. The nasty guy's name is Dutch Callaghan. How can someone so gorgeous be such a dick? Kandi could chalk some of it up to his job. Dutch is a Phoenix PD homicide cop.
Kandi's current case is rescuing a Yorkie from a brutal dog fighting ring. Little does she know her dog napping suspect is involved in a series of brutal murders. Disguised as an elderly nun, Kandi rescues the Yorkie and, in the process, blows the hell out of Dutch's undercover operation.
Kandi now finds herself a person of interest in her client's murder and her sexy-as-hell, pain-in-the-butt neighbor is in hot pursuit of the Ninja Nun. Is Dutch about to slap the cuffs on? Only time will tell.

Funny and witty, Kandi Cain will bring a smile to a reader's face. Kandi's unfortunate first name is courtesy of her Christmas obsessed mother. Who names their child a stripper name? Luckily for Kandi, she is able to follow in her grandmother's footsteps and develop her psychic ability… talking to animals. When Kandi's latest client for her pet detective business asks her to find a beloved Yorkie, Kandi knows it will be a problem. Her client bought a gun and nearly shoots Kandi by accident. This is going to be a wild ride.
The writing style of Ms. Koger is distinctive. Her female characters are snarky even in their inner dialogue. The male characters are alpha males who are much put upon. These beleaguered males are fighting a losing battle - trying to contain the female of interest. Kandi's man is Dutch Callaghan, a straight as an arrow cop who senses there is something not quite right about Kandi. Granted, her first interaction with him makes him come across as a complete jerk. His response to Kandi's neighborly welcome with cookies is unacceptable and plain rude.
As the two characters get to know each other better, they bond a bit. It helps that they are both sexually attracted to each other and the chemistry is fiery hot. For those who enjoyed the Coletti series, this one is a nice contemporary paranormal tangent. The pace is fast and chaotic. It is like following a weasel in that children's song - Pop Goes the Weasel. "Up and down the city road, In and out of the eagle, That's the way the money goes, Pop goes the weasel". Dutch is chasing Kandi all over town, mostly to try and keep her out of trouble. He just catches up as she's leaving. When she finally pops up where he's waiting for her, he nabs her. It's hilarious from start to finish.
This paranormal romance is recommended to readers who enjoy a lighthearted romance with critters running amok.
