As expected from this author the heroine was strong, plucky and had a strong sense of right and wrong. Just make sure you are on the side of right. Unfortunately, her neighbor Dutch, who is a police detective, lands squarely on her wrong side. He's arrogant and demeans her the first time they meet. Wonder how that's going to go for him in the future?

Kandi has the interesting ability to "talk" to animals and get them to do her bidding. Pretty handy when you want pigeons to mark a certain truck. As Kandi employs her skills for a client looking for her beloved dog, she and Dutch butt heads in more ways than one.

This is the first book in a series, and of course we were left dangling. The story moved quickly, we were introduced to Kandi's interesting family as well as a host of other characters that are straight out of my worst nightmares. The story took a decidedly dark turn, and my stomach was officially turned. In addition to her affinity with animals, Kandi also uses her newly acquired ability to talk to the dead. That presents some spine tingling moments as well in her mission to get the deets that no one else can. But at what cost?

During the investigation, as she and Dutch are repeatedly thrown together, chemistry ignites. Dutch has a lot to make up for with his earlier treatment of Kandi, and I look forward to how that is handled in the upcoming book.

Book Blurb for Shenanigans

Kandi Cain inherited her Dr. Doolittle abilities from her grandmother and became a psychic pet detective. To her dismay, she just acquired the power to communicate with the spirit world, but dead people give her the willies.

Just when Kandi thought her life couldn’t get more complicated, the neighbor from hell moved in next door. The nasty guy’s name is Dutch Callaghan. How can someone so gorgeous be such a dick? Kandi could chalk some of it up to his job. Dutch is a Phoenix PD homicide cop.

Kandi’s current case is rescuing a Yorkie from a brutal dog fighting ring. Little does she know her dog napping suspect is involved in a series of brutal murders. Disguised as an elderly nun, Kandi rescues the Yorkie and, in the process, blows the hell out of Dutch’s undercover operation.

Kandi now finds herself a person of interest in her client’s murder and her sexy-as-hell, pain-in-the-butt neighbor is in hot pursuit of the Ninja Nun. Is Dutch about to slap the cuffs on? Only time will tell.
