GHOST OF A CHANCE
If you like mysteries peppered with imps, poltergeists and other assorted spirits, you'll enjoy Marsh's new
paranormal series, set in the same Otherworld as MacAlister's paranormal romances. Her main character, Karma, is half-mortal and half-polter, and the paranormal elements are imaginative and enlightening. But the mystery drags with too much dialogue and too little action. Fortunately, the ending redeems the story.
Karma and her Otherworld entourage head to the house and soon end up sealed in the house with the owner, Spider and his shady business partner and his wife. It's not long before Spider winds up dead and Karma has the unpleasant task of finding his killer. (OBSIDIAN, Feb., 288 pp., $6.99)
