Jen is a snarky, slightly quirky barrista whose ex-boyfriend cheated on her with her 1/2 sister, who has just turned up murdered. Kind of makes Jen look guilty, because she is the one who found the body while in the process of throwing dog poop, yep, LARGE dog poop, into her sister's apartment.

Add to this, Jen's father is a homeless man with mental issues, who refuses to speak and has suddenly disappeared. Did I mention that Jen has a spirit guide that uses auto-writing to communicate cryptic messages to her, or that she has a weird old lady for a neighbor, who is the apartment watch patrol?

Jen also has two very good friends, who stick by her, no matter what.

So, if Jen didn't kill her sister and neither has any of the suspects Jen puts on her list, who did? Where is her father? What does the drag queen have to do with any of this?

Wendy Roberts has a cute, fun read here with a hint of romance, mystery, and a lively heroine who made em laugh with her antics, attitude, and her mouth! There is a touch of 'tongue-in-cheek' throughout this light, murder mystery!

A copy of this book was provided by NetGalley and Carina Press in exchange for an honest review!
