The Delight

A psychic pet detective is all about saving the animals and causing a certain arrogant, cocky homicide detective grief.  Shenanigans is zany, sexy, and a rollicking good time on the streets of Phoenix.


Kandi Cain (oh yes, she’s heard it before) had an unconventional childhood to say the least.  Daughter of a woman obsessed with Christmas and a man who was once a mob enforcer, blessed with the psychic gift that allows her to understand, control, and speak to animals.  Kandi naturally skipped out of her Always Christmas and always matchmaking home to take over her grandmother’s pet detective agency.  She’s good-hearted and has a sense of justice, but there’s a touch of larceny in her, too.

I had a great time with this one.  I was just planning to read a few pages and go back to my regularly scheduled reading, but… Silly me!  I get such a kick out of this author’s books.  They are laugh out loud hilarious and just fun.  I loved Kandi, Dutch the hot detective next door, Kandi’s best friend who’s a mortician, her animal rights friends, her wacky yet lovable parents, and the shadow CIA agent Samuels.

The animals are a crack up in the way she uses them to help against the bad guys and sweet like little Tinkerbell who mourns her first pet mama and latches onto Kandi.  I liked how there was some animal rescue situations sprinkled in with the grittier Mexican gang- cage fight- dog fight ring stuff.

A great start to a new series that I think those who enjoy paranormal elements, a bit of romance spice, and exciting action-comedy.  Can’t wait to see what comes next for Kandi and the gang and with Dutch, especially.

My thanks to the author for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

    I had a great time reading this one..Gail has a “wit that keeps on giving”…I enjoyed Kandi & Dutch, and Jana and Christmas everyday, with Mom and her Elf costume, and love of everthing Christmas..Ho-Ho-Ho-Ho!!! I do not think I will have any more burgers, but, hey..almost a vegan anyway! Ha ha!! Another great read by Gail. Thank you for the intertainment..can’t wait for your Shenanigan 2.

    • Thanks for visiting, Sally, and I loved this one, too. 🙂

  • This sounds like a great read, I’ll have to check her books out I’m not too familiar with them 😀

    • She has mostly a sci-fi romance comedy series, but I think there is an older PNR, too. They’re light and fun and don’t take themselves seriously. 🙂

  • I’m not familiar with this author but it sounds cute, especially the part about talking to animals. I do need to say though, I would have to drop the K from my first name!

    • It was very cute. I discovered her screwball comedy sci-fi romances and had a good time. This was my first PNR by her. It was a hoot. Yeah, this poor girl and her name. 😉

  • Wow, this sounds like a good read. Just the fact that you couldn’t put it down is the hint. But, when I think of paranormal romance – IDK – I immediately think of hot and sexy moments. Weird. I will have to give this one a spin especially since it was LOL funny! Great review.

    • Haha! No real hot and sexy moments. At least not at this point in the series. It’s more screwball comedy with some fun romantic banter. 🙂
