Blog Tour Book Review: Wicked for Hire (Book #1 in the Paranormal in Manhattan Series) by Lotta Smith

About the Book
Sometimes, the
opportunity of a lifetime busts your door instead of gently knocking at it…
on Kindle Unlimited!
Medical student Amanda Meyers thought she had her life all
planned out until people started dying the moment they touched her. Being
cleared of any wrongdoing didn’t stop the medical school from expelling her,
and it didn’t rid her of the unfortunate nickname Grim Reaper. 

Luckily, having a rep as the harbinger of death isn’t a total
resume killer. Rick Rowling, Special Agent for the FBI’s Paranormal Cases
Division recruits her to work for the Bureau. But the sexy, brilliant,
outrageous loose cannon proves to be just as untouchable as the mysterious
creature or creatures that may be responsible for the seemingly unsolvable
murder that becomes their first case together. 

Instead of treating patients, Amanda’s life becomes a test of
her patience and a wild ride into the wicked paranormal world where her new
boss runs the show. Together they face a ghoulish force that could destroy the
entire city and a grueling family dinner that could leave Amanda contemplating

It’s a battle of life and debt [student debt, that is] and
saving the world has never been so funny.

for Hire
 is part of the Paranormal in Manhattan Mystery series.

My Thoughts:
Thank you to Lotta Smith and CLP Blog Tours for a complimentary copy of this book. In return, here is my honest review.
Rating: 4 doughnuts out of 5🍩🍩🍩🍩
A fun read that held my attention the entire time!
So many aspects of this novel are some of my favorites to learn about, read about, and watch subject specific programming and movies. I love true crime and shows about the paranormal, so before I opened my kindle, I knew I would enjoy Wicked for Wire.
Amanda Meyer is likable and intriguing, but FBI Special Agent Rick Rowling really made this book for me . He is funny, quirky, handsome, intelligent…I had an easy time seeing him in my mind, picturing what he looked like, his mannerisms, and how he would dress.
This book moved so quickly and as I wrote in my blurb, it held my attention the entire time I was reading. During the day I would find myself thinking about the book and I definitely read some at my desk at work. Wicked for Hire actually drew me in so completely that I was quite disappointed when the book ended. I actually thought my kindle messed up somehow because there was no way it could be over! I spent about ten minutes playing around with my kindle and doing some research just to make sure I didn’t miss anything. Now that I know this was the first book in a series, I am beyond excited to keep reading!
Would I Recommend this Book?
Yes, definitely!
To Whom Would I Recommend this Book?
Readers who enjoy reading for pleasure, reading to give your brain a break and just have fun and maybe have a laugh or two, or three, would enjoy this book. Those who enjoy a good mystery mixed with some humor and the possibility of a romantic relationship between main characters would enjoy this novel. Readers of cozy mysteries will also enjoy Lotta’s writing.
Thank you for reading my review! Please keep reading for some fun and exciting opportunities!
