#BookReview and Giveaway: Wicked For Hire by Lotta Smith

wicked for hireAbout the Book

Medical student Amanda Meyers thought she had her life all planned out until people started dying the moment they touched her. Being cleared of any wrongdoing didn’t stop the medical school from expelling her, and it didn’t rid her of the unfortunate nickname Grim Reaper.

Luckily, having a rep as the harbinger of death isn’t a total resume killer. Rick Rowling, Special Agent for the FBI’s Paranormal Cases Division recruits her to work for the Bureau. But the sexy, brilliant, outrageous loose cannon proves to be just as untouchable as the mysterious creature or creatures that may be responsible for the seemingly unsolvable murder that becomes their first case together.

Instead of treating patients, Amanda’s life becomes a test of her patience and a wild ride into the wicked paranormal world where her new boss runs the show. Together they face a ghoulish force that could destroy the entire city and a grueling family dinner that could leave Amanda contemplating harakiri.

It’s a battle of life and debt [student debt, that is] and saving the world has never been so funny.

Wicked for Hire is part of the Paranormal in Manhattan Mystery series. If you like fast-paced mysteries full of quirky characters and unexpected twists, you’re gonna love this book.

My Review

I felt like Wicked For Hire was so unlike a lot of other paranormal mysteries I’ve read. I loved the humor to it, quirky characters, snark, and plenty of unpredictable moments. Amanda was really a hoot to read about, and though I’ve never been in the majority of her interesting situations, she was quite relatable. This was pretty fast-paced and took me just over a day to finish, and is book one in a long series, that I look forward to grabbing more from. If you are a paranormal mystery fan, check this series out!
