‘Zoe Martinique’ series Book #1
First in an excitingly different and new paranormal series. Zo’ Martinique has turned her unusual ability into a career. When she’s traveling, she can’t be seen which makes her an ideal professional snoop. Industrial espionage, surveillance, whatever. But one night things get out of hand while she’s out-of-body. She witnesses a murder and discovers she has unwelcome company: Trench-Coat, a ghostly killer who can see her and hurt her.
Teaming up with a blue-eyed police detective, she tries to solve the case and improve her love life. She also enlists the support of her psychic mother and the ghostly couple who haunt her house. And with murderers, kidnappers, and a desperate ex-porn star involved, Zo’ needs all the help she can get.
Review: I finished this novel on Saturday, July 21st, 2007. An excellent first novel!
I really liked Zoe as a character. I loved her attitude, her personality, the way she sees things, feels emotions. Truly an original character.
The rest of the cast was great as well. Her mom, her ‘assistant’ her friends, and ‘her cute cop.’ Each and everyone an ‘original.’
I thought the plot was great, the twists perfectly placed. The action was smooth, the suspense enough to drive you crazy (good crazy,) and the ‘bad guys’ give you the shivers like you wouldn’t believe. If you like paranormal thrillers, this one is an awesome read! I can’t wait for the second book!
