New Release and Review: Riley Thorn and the Dead Guy Next Door by Lucy Score

Title: Riley Thorn and the Dead Guy Next Door
Author: Lucy Score
Genre: Psychic Romantic Comedy
Release Date: August 27, 2020
A nice, normal life. Is that too much to ask? For Riley Thorn it is. Divorced. Broke. Living with a pack of elderly roommates. And those hallucinations she’s diligently ignoring? Her tarot card-dealing mom is convinced they’re clairvoyant visions.

Just when things can’t get worse, a so-hot-it-should-be-illegal private investigator shows up on her doorstep looking for a neighbor…who turns up murdered.

Nick Santiago doesn’t play well with others. Unless the “others” are of the female persuasion. Wink. He’s a rebel, a black sheep, a man who prefers a buffet of options to being stuck with the same entrée every night, if you catch his drift.

When the pretty, possibly psychic Riley lands at the top of the list of suspects, Nick volunteers to find out whodunit. Only because he likes solving mysteries not because he wants to flex his heroic muscles for the damsel in distress.

All they have to do is figure out who pulled the trigger, keep the by-the-book detective with a grudge at bay, and deal with a stranger claiming he was sent to help Riley hone her psychic gifts. All before the killer discovers she’s a loose end that requires snipping.

Review:

If you are looking for a book that’s a little different than your typical rom-com then try this one.  As with most of this author’s books, you will get a whole gang of funny, crazy characters that get into some zany situations.

Riley is a psychic that just wants to be normal.  Nick is just wants to live life on his terms.  After an interesting meet-cute, they take this wild ride to get to know each other and to learn more about themselves.  All while trying to find out who killed her next door neighbor.  If that wasn’t enough, enter the gang of crazy side characters, that both help and derail their efforts.  Their antics will have your laughing out loud.

There is chemistry between these two from the start, but their story is a slow burn.  I recommend this sweet, funny, wacky story.
