Summary

In this debut novel of her Pet Psychic series, Jacqueline Vick combines mystery, romance, and the disturbing thoughts of many furry friends in a story that will have you laughing out loud.


Frankie Chandler is a pet psychic.  At least that's how she bills her services.  Her "telepathic abilities" actually come to her via animal behavior books and her ability to cold read people, a skill that she learned from her tarot card-reading Aunt Gertrude, a.k.a. Madame Guinevere. That was before Sandy, a Golden Retriever, blows through Frankie's mental barrier and shows her an image she'll never forget. Sandy witnessed a murder, and when the killer begins to tie up loose ends, Frankie struggles to use her new talent to convince the frightened dog to reveal the whole story before it's too late...for both of them!


˃˃˃ Are there really pet psychics?

When I was researching an article for "Fido Friendly Magazine", I booked two appointments for my dog, Buster. The first pet psychic, one with national acclaim, left me snickering. The second pet psychic, who preferred to be called an animal communicator, wasn't so easy to brush off. And Buster lay at his feet and woofed a few times, almost as if he were answering him. This animal communicator graciously consented to answer research questions for my book. To answer the question: Who really knows for certain? However, in the words of my parish priest, "We don't really know how St. Francis communicated with the animals."  I've seen people who were obviously reading their audience to come up with solutions, but I think there might be people who are more in tune with animals than most.


˃˃˃ What readers are saying!

"Jacqueline Vick is the queen of smart and sassy sarcasm. Jump in and enjoy the roller-coaster ride through murder, mystery, and a multitude of clever quips. Her Frankie Chandler character is so real, you'll think you could pick her out of a crowd."


"I like characters I can cheer for, and Jacqueline delivers with characters that I liked, and also quirky enough to hold my interest. Human and otherwise. Jacqueline also successfully takes you into the protagonists head, so you see what she sees and experience. Especially liked the ending! Fun read."
