If you like a character quirky enough to "see" her dead ex-husband's ghost through-out the story, I've got a book for you!

Because the plot keeps moving, it is hard to settle on the fact that talking with one's dead ex-husband is not the norm. It was only after I finished the story that I reasoned that this book was a wee bit off-kilter. You have to love a character that has the nerve to call herself "Mojo Sheepshanks!"

You know you have entered another universe when Mojo wakes up and finds the ghost of her philandering, dead ex-husband in bed with her! Just so she will not toss him out, Nick brings her a gift - the ghost of her dead cat - killed by her half-brother when Mojo was four years of age.

What does this have to do with the price of beans, you ask? Miller uses the ghosts to slowly unravel the tragic story of how Mojo became an orphan at 5 - and how this affects her current life.

Things are not as they seem (yep, we're back in that other universe), but I didn't really care because the story raced ahead at warp speed. I knew I was in the "twilight zone" when Nick announced he would help Mojo with the emerging problems so he "could board the last train for heaven."

I have never read a "paranormal suspense romance" before and doubted I would again. But, hey, I was a sucker and picked up book #2! That review will come soon; watch for it in the "twilight zone."
