Review: The Ghost Shrink, the Accidental Gigolo, & the Poltergeist Accountant by Vivi Andrews
Posted by StephB
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 phanto–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…
The Ghost Shrink, the Accidental Gigolo, & the Poltergeist Accountant (Karmic Consultants #1) by Vivi Andrews
The title of this one is almost as long as the story, but this little book is packed with laughs. Lucy is the Ghost Shrink, or so she considers herself. She “helped the deceased work through their issues and move on to the next plane. The white light. Whatever.”
Her boss just happens to be Karma, “pure sex. Walking, talking sensuality.” Lucy classifies herself as the girl next door and she’s having a bit of dry spell in the sex department. To top off that bitter piece of cake, her sexual drought seems to attract the ghosts of horny businessmen. The first one we meet, the Larrinator was a riot in his ghostly and ghastly attempts to seduce Lucy.
Karma advises her to change the energy she puts out into the world, if she wants to change the type of ghosts that pop in. She can’t believe her luck when “Jake Cox walked through her door that afternoon like a walking, talking gift from Cupid.” When he tells her that Karma sent him, she’s a bit mortified, and more than a bit Thank.You.God. She’s convinced her boss has sent (the Accidental) Gigolo to help her “change her energy”.
Jake’s a PI and he needs to talk to the Poltergeist Accountant who should be arriving at Lucy’s very soon. There have been a series of murders and he’s investigating them. Who better to help him that the girl that talks to dead people.
I could go on and on, but really, at this point I’ve already told you too much. The story is short, so take your time reading it. I promise you’ll be drawn to these adorable, sexy, funny characters just like I was. I look forward to continuing with the series.
