Crystal works as a personal assistant, but when her boss turns up sick, it is up to her to go to a rich client’s house and support him as his family prepares for his uncle’s passing.

Finding her boss’ sex-filled emails makes Crystal determined to stay professional at all costs . . . until she meets the client’s brother, who is exactly her type of sexy.

When the uncle dies under suspicious circumstances, Crystal takes on more duties than your average PA: funeral tasks, investigating multiple deaths, searching a haunted house and becoming a sexual playmate. But, someone doesn’t want her around, and they’re willing to kill to keep their inheritance. Too bad for them that Crystal’s got a few tricks of her own.

In this tale of sex, murder and ghosts, sometimes the hired help is a bit more than average, and sometimes bodies just won’t stay dead.

MY REVIEW

This line of the blurb is what grabbed my attention: “In this tale of sex, murder and ghosts, sometimes the hired help is a bit more than average, and sometimes bodies just won’t stay dead.”

I wanted to know more. I needed to know. Sometimes curiosity kills the cat. While this story had a lot of potential, it kept driving me to distraction. Every time I thought I was understanding what was going on, I was thrown for a loop. I enjoyed the fact that I didn’t have a clue to the deceptions that bled through this story, but some things didn’t make complete sense. I couldn’t find a trickle of fondness for any of the characters involved because although the author was descriptive, I didn’t feel like I got to know any of them. What little I did learn, I didn’t really like. However, I liked the way the author explored the paranormal mystery that shrouded the plot. It was intense and suspenseful and gave such an eerie sensation to this story.

So if you like a bit of sex mixed in with some mystery and ghosts, this book may just be what you’re looking for!
