To be honest, I'd say it's more like a 3.5, but don't want to drag the author's rating down any more than necessary, so will go with a 4 here. I liked the characters and the premise, but I felt the execution and pacing were off in a few places. The POV changes weren't always well balanced or consistent. The book came highly recommended, and if it hadn't been, I may have put it down early on, because it wasn't until I was about 30% into it that I was actually _interested in reading on. I can see the set-up for a series, and I may find myself interested in picking up the next book, but it won't be a high priority. ( )

Book description
Cupcakes, Lies, and Dead Guys

Moving from Wisconsin to sunny Los Angeles was the frosting on the cake of Annie Graceland's perfect life. Her boutique bakery business was blossoming, she was happily married to a handsome, ambitious actor, and they were planning to have a baby. Besides her derelict friends, the only thing that got Annie in serious trouble was her smidge of psychic ability: feeling other people's sensations in her own body. She hated experiencing someone else's peanut butter addiction, foot fetish, or murderous rage. Thank God, her psychic curse only kicked in when she was stressed.

When Annie discovers her husband is possibly cheating with oh-so-famous, self-help author, Dr. Fuller. Fuller ends up dead, poisoned with one of Annie's signature cupcakes, and she becomes a prime murder suspect. When the not-so-good Doctor's ghost doesn't pass to the After-Life and is stuck on earth, Fuller decides to recruit, (aka, haunt), a live personal assistant to investigate and bring his killer to justice. Who better to help than Annie?

Now Annie is not only stuck with the most irritating ghost in the world, but is forced to spy on, and infiltrate the lives of Hollywood's elite; the motley crew of suspects who wanted Fuller dead. Was it the porn star, the trophy wife, the talent manager, the personal trainer? Will Annie survive the L.A. whackos who wanted Fuller dead before she is whacked by the real killer?
