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.
