 Welcome to day 5 of the Cage Match. We have two talented authors duking it out to be number one. Anne Charles Vs Gary Ponzo.

But who will the winner be? It is up to you to comment and help pick the winner. You may even win a Kindle with all of the books preloaded on it. Check out the Blog Tour D Force's home page for information on how to win the kindle.

Most of you know how fantastic Anne Charles Book "Nearly Departed in Deadwood" is but I had the opportunity to read the ARC of Ann's next book "Optical Delusions in Deadwood." The cover is so top secret that I was not able to see it yet but I bet it will be great.

So what is it about?

Word has it single mom, Violet Parker—Deadwood’s most notorious Realtor—likes to chitchat with ghosts. With her reputation damaged, her bank account on the verge of extinction, and her career threatening to go up in flames, Violet is desperate to make a sale. When the opportunity to sell another vintage home materializes, she grabs it, even though this “haunted” house was recently the stage for a two-act, murder-suicide tragedy. Ghost or no ghost, Violet knows this can’t be as bad as the last house of horrors she tried to sell, but charmingly irresistible Doc Nyce isn’t so sure. Her only hope of hanging on to her job is to prove that the so-called, ghostly sightings are merely the eccentric owner’s optical delusions. Unfortunately someone—or something—in the house wants her stopped…dead.

My Thoughts- 

I have not read Ann's first book in the series but I had no problem following the storyline. I have always been fascinated with ghosts and the supernatural. I really liked Violet because she was witty, loving and smart. Violet suffers many mishaps in the book but she finds comfort in Doc Nyce and a steamy romance begins. She is desperate for money and agrees to sell a house that is "haunted" and the owners of the house are quite strange. There is mystery, humor, romance, and fun all wrapped up in a great book. All the characters were developed fully even the "ghost." If you like spooky mysteries, adventure and fun then pick up a copy of the book when it is released in May. You will not be disappointed.
