Blurb: A tale of life, love, death, and other mysteries of the universe… including the importance of a good wardrobe.
Dead folks are the best friends of Quinn McConnell and Hunter Janz. Dead folks pay the bills for this team of psychic mediums . . . but just barely. To make it into the financial comfort zone, they need to outshine their competition.
Quinn needs even more than that. He’s been infatuated with his partner for the nearly three years they’ve been together, and if he can’t either get over his crush or make something happen with Hunter, they’ll have to split up. Sexual tension and unrequited love can wreak havoc with a psychic’s reception.
Salvation comes hobbling along in the form of a well-dressed but ravaged-looking man who can clearly see and converse with the dearly departed. Why? Because, he claims, he has something in common with them: He’s also been dead. The zombie who calls himself Dustin DeWind needs the psychics’ help in finding the man who made him what he is. In return, he promises to steer them toward the often elusive spirits that are their stock in trade.
But something more goes on when Quinn and Hunter forge an uneasy alliance with Dustin DeWind. It seems he’s also nudging them toward each other …
Review: This is a great Paranormal/Fantasy which I enjoyed reading. Quinn McConnell and Hunter Janz are psychic mediums, they can feel the emotions of the spirits, Hunter mainly mentally and Quinn mainly physically. They work well together and are currently helping the police with a missing person case when they are approached by a man who needs help finding his lover, a man who claims there are wizards and he is a zombie.
These two men have been work partners and friends for three years and Quinn has fallen for Hunter even though he says he is straight, even if he does have flashes of attraction towards men. Working with Dustin DeWind and finding out his story, these two men face up to how they really feel about each other.
This is a smooth story that will interest you as it isn’t a typical zombie story; Quinn and Hunter are an interesting couple even when they just work together, as the interaction speaks of how close they really are. I also liked Dustin DeWind who is a great supporting character.
I will recommend this book to anyone who loves Fantasy/Paranormal, hot sex and a good story line.
