For being about a difficult subject, a murder, this really was a "light" book. The mood wasn't too heavy and it had some parts that really made me laugh. There were a few tense scenes, but it didn't ruin the mood that I got from this one.

I really liked Faith. She was such a great character because she was real. I could see myself having her thoughts, her ideas (well some of her ideas... LOL). She was just a normal person. I think the problem with characters who have the kind of abilities that Fa

Faith is a lightworker and she hasn't quite lived up to her potential. She finds out that she has one year to make headway on her life's mission or her journey will end. Not knowing what exactly she is supposed to do, she begins to live her life. Dating and love have not been a great experience for Faith and her willingness to jump into the dating world is sluggish, to say the least. Bridget sets her up on a blind date with Dick, who stands Faith up. Upset at the fact she was stood up, Faith dam ...more

This was a fun and refreshing book that combined elements of spirituality, humor and mystery. Many of the spiritual concepts were new to me and I found myself never bored while reading Dead End Date.

I loved the main character Faith. The author made her seem very real and I loved Faith’s sense of humor. She didn’t take herself so seriously and it made her appealing. The setup was also great: Faith is given a year to start bringing more love to Earth and fulfill her duties as a Lightworker. During

Adventures of a Lightworker series mates chick lit and metaphysics

Dead End Date, the first book in the Adventures of a Lightworker series by Caroline A. Shearer, is an entertaining romp through metaphysics and relationships. The tone is light and fun, and the pairing of spiritual concepts and the narrator's relationship challenges helps make the book both amusing and insightful.

Spiritual/metaphysical content: High. Faith’s life purpose is to be a lightworker, which Shearer defines as an evolved

I won Adventures of a Lightworker: Dead End Date here on Goodreads. When I first started the book I was not sure at all if I would end up enjoying it. The book includes a great deal about spirituality, organic foods, and a few other things that I'm generally not really into. However, I decided that I would give it a chance. I'm so glad that I did as after about 30 pages the mystery began and I literally didn't put it down except to eat from that point on. The main character Faith really grew on ...more

"Dead End Date" is a joyful mix of Sophie Kinsella's "Shopaholic," mixed with a dash of "I Love Lucy," if Lucy & Ethel solved mysteries. The narrator, Faith, tells the story as though writing a letter to a friend; the tone is warm even as Faith grapples with issues of learning to live in the moment, listening to her heart, and fulfilling her life's purpose to help others in difficult situations. In the case of this book, that difficult situation is the murder of a would-be blind date. The ci ...more

This is such a cute book! A little bit like Law and Order meets the Ghost Whisperer. I had a VERY hard time putting it down. I read the entire thing in about two days. Despite the fact that it is about a murder, I often found myself giggling out loud while reading as it is sprinkled with humor, particularly regarding the pitfalls of dating. While still maintaining the form of a novel, the author manages to sneak in tips on totally applicable practices such as space-clearing, which do not detract ...more

I won a copy of this book through Goodreads First Reads. This is an excellent debut book from a promising author. I thoroughly enjoyed the mystery and spirituality in the book. At times I laughed and at times the story nearly brought me to tears. I can’t wait for the second book in this series!

I enjoyed this book very much. The characters were very real, I felt like this story was about my friends :) It was such a fun mystery to get into. I can't wait for the rest of the series to come out, I am looking forward to see what Faith and Bridget get into next!

A fun, light read. I'm curious about where Faith goes in the next book.
Jan 23, 2012 Madison rated it it was amazing
Adventures of A Lightworker: Dead End Date was such a wonderful and easy read. The main characters were well developed and had great senses of humor. The plot grew thicker and thicker, bubbling right up until the last few chapters of the book. The suspense was almost unbearable yet so very exciting! Each chapter was unique, added to the story-line and the conclusion was just magnificent. The underlying story of finding a deep self-love was motivational and inspiring and did not take away from th ...more
