Synopsis: Smoke doesn’t always mean there’s fire...
Andi Comstock loves her new job, but she can’t figure out why she is the only person in the building who smells the smoke. Not only does she smell it, but each time she does, she hears a voice in her head.
One of those voices suggests she talk to Father Riley at St. Gemma’s Church, “a man of God and a believer in the afterlife.” Stunned and hoping she hasn’t lost her mind or developed a brain tumor, Andi makes the leap back to church. Much to her surprise, she gains a cohort in her effort to track down the source of both the smoke and the voices.
Sometimes, it means murder...
Then comes a voice that belongs to someone Andi went to school with and it’s begging for help. When Andi and Father Riley discover they may have stumbled upon a murder, the priest summons homicide detective Jack Harmon for assistance.
Now if Andi can just figure out why the voice keeps telling her, “Look at my teeth.”
Andi Comstock's love of computers and creating game apps has just landed her an awesome new job, the only problem is she's plagued by the smell of smoke. It gets a little hairy when no one else seems to be able to smell it. Not wanting her colleagues to think she's nuts, Andi decides not to tell them about the voices that accompany the smoke. However, when one voice begs for her help Andi knows she needs to talk with someone. Who better than a priest? To Andi's relief, Father Riley doesn't think she crazy and instead vows to help her figure everything out. When the two begin piecing together the clues behind the smoke they also uncover a murder. Enlisting the help of one very attractive detective, Andi and Father Riley set out to catch a killer. Can the voices Andi hears lead them to a suspect before it's too late?
Holy Smoke is a sensational debut novel in the new Andi Comstock Supernatural Mystery series by Ann Simas. I have read several of her novels and am always impressed by her skillful writing and imagination to create captivating stories. Holy Smoke is wonderfully written, well organized, and had me hooked from the get go. The characters are vibrant and the back and forth banter between Andi and Detective Jack Harmon adds a bit of humor while making their characters all that more enjoyable. This is an all around entertaining read.
I highly recommend picking up a copy. Available on Amazon.
