Book Description: Meet Leda Foley: devoted friend, struggling travel agent, and inconsistent psychic. When Leda, sole proprietor of Foley’s Flights of Fancy, impulsively re-books Seattle PD detective Grady Merritt’s flight, her life changes in ways she couldn’t have predicted.
After watching his original plane blow up from the safety of the airport, Grady realizes that Leda’s special abilities could help him with a cold case he just can’t crack.
Despite her scattershot premonitions, she agrees for a secret reason: her fiancé’s murder remains unsolved. Leda’s psychic abilities couldn’t help the case several years before, but she’s been honing her skills and drawing a crowd at her favorite bar’s open-mic nights, where she performs Klairvoyant Karaoke—singing whatever song comes to mind when she holds people’s personal effects. Now joined by a rag-tag group of bar patrons and pals alike, Leda and Grady set out to catch a killer—and learn how the two cases that haunt them have more in common than they ever suspected.

I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This book starts out fairly fast by us getting to see the power that Leda has and how she is able to save Grady and then the mystery begins. Grady has been wanting to solve a murder for a while and Leda has been wanting to solve her fiance’s murder, so what better way than to team up together, along with Leda’s fun and funny friend Niki. I really liked the idea behind this book and thought it was a fun read and a good start to the series.

The characters were pretty fun. I really like that Leda goes out and uses her powers by singing karaoke and that is how she hones them. I also really enjoy her relationship with Niki who makes for a fun secondary character who always has a funny line to make you chuckle as you are reading. Grady is well written and I like that he is open to Leda’s powers and wants to involve her in his work and also help her solve her mystery as well. I do wish there was a little more romance between them, but I also realize it just wasn’t the right time and if they end up in a platonic relationship then I will be okay with it.

Overall the plot of the story is fairly well written. I think there could have been a little more mystery to it because I was able to figure out the mystery pretty early on. I do think you have to suspend reality for this in a way because of course you have the clairvoyance aspect, but also you have to be okay with the fact that in real life no detective would break as many rules as Grady does to allow Leda and Niki to be apart of it.

I think it was a fairly good start to the series and I will possibly pick up the second one to read it and see what happens next.
