When Angela’s mother Fran dies and comes back as a ghost, Angela’s ordinary life turns into a carnival show, starring both Angela and her nosy, dead mother. It seems Fran’s got some unfinished business on earth and she’s determined to get it done, no matter what. When Fran returned, she reignited her daughter’s long suppressed psychic gift, one she neglected to mention to Angela, and now Angela sees ghosts everywhere. And they won’t leave her alone. Fran can’t help but stick her transparent nose where it doesn’t belong, making Angela’s life even crazier. Now Angela has to find a way to keep her old life in tact and help the dead with their unfinished business, all while trying to keep her dead mother out of trouble. And it’s a lot for one woman to handle.
This was a very entertaining read. A lot of humor, some witty characters and a bit of tear jerking makes for a great book. The characters were so easy to relate to and the dynamic between all of them was touching. The death of Angela’s mother sets off a series of events that’s part carnival show and part ghost story. When her mother appears to her after her death it sets her “gift” off and suddenly she’s seeing ghosts everywhere she goes, and they all want her help. There are a lot of laughs and some very sad moments that keep the reader engaged and wanting to know what happens next. As a mom I felt myself relating to Angela and feeling her joy and her sorrow. I think this is the start to what could be an amazing series and I can’t wait to see what comes next for Angela and her celestial mother.
