Psychic medium Deanna Oscar wants to be a normal psychology professor at a nice college. The universe has other ideas. When the grandmother she never knew dies and leaves her everything, Deanna enters a different world. In New Orleans anything goes and her psychic powers aren’t a secret. She doesn’t plan on staying but a psychic vision puts her on the trail of a killer. Deanna can’t turn her back on the future victims and becomes immersed in her grandmother’s world. She isn’t sure how to manage the mansion and fortune she inherited or the people who came with it. An ex-priest, a Latina drag queen and a socialite beauty queen are the living entourage. Add in a houseful of ghosts and haunted objects and Deanna needs a little help. In over her head, she struggles to catch a killer who is out to get her as well.
A Mansion, A Drag Queen, and A New Job is the first book in C.C. Dragon‘s Deanna Oscar Paranormal Mystery series. This paranormal mystery read like a cozy and was an overall fun read.
A Mansion, A Drag Queen, and A New Job started out a bit slow, but picked up into a nice and enjoyable read. Deanna Oscar was a lovable character that always seemed to remain true to herself, if a bit confused about what exactly that meant at times. With a fantastic cast of secondary characters always mixing things up it was a great introduction into the world and series. Being set in New Orleans added a special something to the story, as only NOLA can do and in A Mansion, A Drag Queen, and A New Job it was a nice fit.
The mystery was well played out and fit nicely into the story and setting. The downside to this title is that it needs a good run through with a detailed oriented editor. Several things (typos, punctuation) distracted from the flow of the story that are truly easy fixes and I am not nit-picky or sensitive about these issues.
I rate A Mansion, A Drag Queen, and A New Job 3.5 out of 5 Bullets~
I personally purchased A Mansion, a Drag Queen, and A New Job. All opinions are my own and are not influenced in any way.
