Product description


It had the snarky dialogue, spunky BFF and adorable love interest (in this case, husband) associated with chick lit along with ghosts, spirits or celestial beings. (If you read the book, you will know the difference between the three.) This story had its funny moments but it was also very sad at points - kind of like real life, but with ghosts. The ending made me cry a little. Looking forward to the second installment.--Bestselling author Meredith Schorr I loved the way the author told this story. The underlying subject matter was serious, but her funny, snarky tone lightened the mood to make it a very enjoyable read. The author has a great sense of humor, even about death, but when the story called for it, she was reverent and empathetic in the way her characters handled each other.--Bestselling author Caroline Fardig "Unfinished Business" is an entertaining story of a woman discovering she has a gift for seeing the dead and talking to them. The dialog is witty, and Angela's running commentary with her mother is so realistic, it will remind readers of their own mothers! InD'Tale Magazine I've read a lot of paranormal books, but this was by far the cutest I've read in a long time. Fran kind of had the attitude of Grandma Mazur from Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, and the paranormal element was very cute..definitely an entertaining read to take you away from the stress of the day for a hot second. Katelyn Hensel Readers Favorite If you like Janet Ivanovich & Sophia Kinsella, you'll love Carolyn Ridder Aspenson. Unfinished Business is a mixture of romance, cozy mystery and chick lit with a fun paranormal element. This book perfect for all readers. ---Stephanie Konat, Booktrope Editions

Format: Paperback
To misquote a famous movie: Angela sees dead people. Angela's mother returns as a ghost and reawakens a latent psychic gift in her daughter. This talent turns Angela's life upside down. How will she cope with her shimmering, transparent mother floating in and out of her life? What should she do about these other ghosts who keep pestering her to help them with their unfinished business? How is she going to explain all this to her husband, when she doesn't fully understand it herself?

Angela is a lovely character. I could relate to her right from the start. She's facing life's ups and downs as we all do, and suddenly she's presented with this extraordinary ability. Her mixed reactions to her new-found talent feel very real. Despite being a ghost, her mother comes over as thoroughly down to earth, which is wonderfully ironic and very funny. The mother-daughter relationship rings true, and it's clear from their delightful and sometimes absurd conversations how much they both love and irritate each other. It's also through some great dialogue that we really get to know Angela and her best friend Mel. Their warm friendship is fuelled by coffee, cupcakes, and lots of good-natured gossip.

I particularly like those moments in the book when Angela sees a ghost and there's a feeling of anticipation: What message does the ghost want her to pass on? How will the loved one react to her? Each one of these scenes is shot through with comedy and sadness. In less skilled hands these scenes could have faltered, but this author gets the balance just right for the comedy to shine and the sadness to move you. The bit where she has a message for a teenage girl whose father died made me feel very weepy, but the overall tone of the book is splendidly upbeat.

I'm really looking forward to more Angela Panther stories.

I'd like to thank the author for sending me a review copy of this book.

I enjoyed this book from start to finish. It was a great easy read on a rainy day. I warmed to Angela right from the start. When we meet her, she has just lost her Mother and is still coming to terms with that as well as being a wife and mother to two children. And then her Mother comes back. Still Dead. And she is not alone, other ghosts/spirits/celestial beings keep popping up wanting Angela to help them, and then there is Angela's Mother who is sticking around cos Angela still needs her but she can't say why cos there are "rules".
Angela could very easily just crumble but her husband, son, best friend and her new Medium friend all rally round and help her come to terms with her new found "gift/curse!"
All the characters in the book are very well fleshed out. Methinks this author is another one of them people watchers. The dialogue is fantastically funny at parts and dead(!) serious other times. It is certainly a book that takes the reader on a roller-coaster of a ride through various emotions. I was laughing hard one minute and nearly crying the next.
A lot of this first book is, as I have already said, taken up with Angela coming to terms with things and not as much "real action" as I would have liked but it it a first book and there has to be a certain amount of scene setting. This coming to terms also defines Angela as a person and moulds the other characters into shape too so it is completely necessary, That said, I did enjoy the ghostly interactions and I notice there are two more books already out so bring it on...

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This novel was absolutely gripping from the first page, a true page-turner. I really enjoyed it from beginning to end and there isn’t anything or anyone I would change; the whole storyline was intriguing and the side stories were all equally interesting. I found the plot to be very well balanced, as there is actually a lot of emotion and a great deal of sadness in places but it is beautifully leveled out with humour, kindness, love and a caffeine addiction.

The storyline of someone finding out they have a ‘gift’ and can see spirits is dealt with in a truly realistic way, rather than it being easy. The main character, Angela, does struggle to deal with what she has, she goes through lots of upheavals as she tries to come to terms with what has suddenly, and apparently without warning, been thrust upon her. She is rude, angry, resigned and grateful, but with the help and support of those closest to her she becomes stronger as she goes through a gamut of emotions.

The storyline takes a swift and difficult turn when Angela discovers from her ‘mother’ that her daughter and many other children may be in danger. Angela then has the difficult decision of how to act, if she acts at all, and it’s a tragic story with a very moral outcome.

I loved every page of this book, I love this genre and this is most certainly one of the best examples I have read. I really recommend it if this is your kind of thing.

`Unfinished Business' is one of my favourite novels to review so far. Not only was the writing natural and easy to read, it had me in stitches at times. The writer has used language and a writing style that obviously comes naturally to her and for that the novel really does benefit.
It tells the story of Angela Panther and how she came to be a medium (with help from her newly deceased mother). I already know a bit about this sort of spiritual field but even if I hadn't, I wouldn't have been lost. Because the novel is in the first person - and Angela hasn't the faintest idea about anything she's experiencing - it makes it really easy to understand. It also doesn't feel like a great leap into the fantasy world; or it didn't for me at least. Yes, Angela's dead mother floats around and shimmies her way in and out of her daughter's day-to-day life, but honestly, it felt completely normal to read. Maybe it's good writing, or maybe I'm just going nuts, who knows.

While this book is very funny and easy to relate to, I did feel there wasn't one strong storyline running through in the sense that the main character is `after the baddie' or `trying to get the cute guy'. It's more telling the story of this one woman's progression through a time in her life when weird stuff seems to be going on and how she comes to terms with it all. Don't get me wrong, things happen, but it's all normal family stuff which you could see any family having to go through, and it's all written in such a way you just feel you're getting an insight into a part of Angela Panther's life. I also loved the characters. I think anyone could relate to Angela's best friend - a little bit nuts but always there for her - and any wife or girlfriend could relate to Angela's husband, the typical male!
