Karma's A Bitch by Shannon Esposito - Book Review

Darwin Winters, reluctant pet psychic, is determine to leave her family's paranormal past behind and lead a normal life. So she strikes out on her own and opens up a new pet boutique in St. Pete, Florida. When a local homeless man she befriends is found dead, and the police assume it's a suicide, Darwin has no choice but to use her gift to help collar the killer. 

She adopts his grieving mastiff, Karma - and with the dogs help - tries to piece together the events of that fatal night. Accepting the visions is one thing, but can she solve the mystery without revealing her powers to the jaded, yet drool-worthy, detective in charge of the case? Or will the killer put an end to her psychic sleuthing and bury the truth for good? 

I downloaded this book on Amazon for free using Kindle Unlimited, when I saw someone how write such a positive review on it through Twitter and was in need of a new book to read. 
The book cover pulled me in first and then the blurb definitely did... Who doesn't love a good murder mystery? 

Darwin Winters is such a heart-warming character, she never stops helping people whether she knows them or not and has the most upbeat positive vibes just coming off of her! Her story is also extremely fascinating as she is a pet psychic and her family also have powers of their own, however, you don't really learn much about her family in this one, so you're left wondering how powerful her family must be as well. She runs a cute pet boutique with friend Sylvia, who is such a great character, Sylvia is also very positive and keeps the customers and their pets happy from the second they step in to the boutique until the second they say goodbye. Sylvia is a much more feisty character and likes to explore new people and places. While she is very happy going, she never really approves of Darwin seeking out a murderer, as she knows no good is going to come from it. 

You meet so many fascinating people in this book with very different backgrounds. My favourite people would have to have been the homeless group in Pirate City, they were friends with the homeless man who was murdered and although they was a rough group who had different people attacking them all the time, they was all extremely generous to Darwin when she delivered them food, but also cared for her more than they or Darwin thought. No matter how many times they warned Darwin to stay away because she'd get hurt, she seeked out the danger anyway. 

This book is filled with growing friendships, a possible relationship, a lot of dangerous people who you would've never of guessed and so many gorgeous dogs! The killer was not who I would've suspected which I love, there's nothing worse than a predictable book and this one was definitely not predictable! I grew so attached to these characters, I always felt myself tearing up at certain parts. It's such a light-hearted book which had short chapters and only 200+ pages, if you're a book blogger or a reader in general, you'll know there's nothing better than books like those! I loved this book so much, I finished it in 2 days and as this a series, I immediately bought the next book and will be buying the third as soon as I'm finished! I'd advise you all to go download this book as soon as you've read this post because you'll not be disappointed!
