Emma never dreamed of being a super-sleuth. In her mind’s eye, she’s more Scooby Doo than Nancy Drew. When her nosy neighbor, Mrs. Perkins, drags her to an anniversary party to solve a mystery, Emma rolls her eyes, buys a box of chocolates and hops in the car. What’s a party without an attack on its host—or more accurately on the host’s grandson, sparking an allergic reaction and moving the party to the hospital waiting room. Now, everyone is suspect. Emma and Mrs. Perkins, along with Great-Aunt Alice (a spirit with boundary issues who keeps stepping into Emma’s body like a new dress and playing matchmaker), dive into an investigation that almost gets Emma killed along with the man they are trying to protect. With too many reasons to kill him and so much to be gained if he died, Emma and Mrs. Perkins must unravel the tenuous ties that point to every member of his family as potential killers.
Anna Simpson lives near the Canadian-US border with her family. Even though she's lived in several places in British Columbia, her free spirit wasn't able to settle down until she moved back to her hometown.
She is easy to find though, if you know the magic word -- emaginette. Do an internet search using it and you'll see what I mean. :-)
White Light is an easy to read and entertaining mystery novel that will only take you a couple of days, or less, to read. It's well written and the plot is quite solid.
Emma has always been afraid of telling people her secret and wants nothing more than living a normal life, so when her neighbor asks for help to solve a mystery she is wary of being involved. However, the noisy spirit of her Great-Aunt will drag her not only into solving the mystery but also into a relationship she wasn't expecting.
The characters are good, each one has a defined personality and most women are super funny. The scenes flow naturally and the mystery is well built. I liked the paranormal element with the body-snatching spirit.
Overall, it's a good book and a good choice for those who like mysteries.
