A Mansion, A Drag Queen, And A New Job (Deanna Oscar Paranormal Mystery Book 1) by CC Dragon

Psychic medium Deanna Oscar wants to be a normal psychology professor at a nice college. The universe has other ideas. When the grandmother she never knew dies and leaves her everything, Deanna enters a different world. In New Orleans anything goes and her psychic powers aren’t a secret. She doesn’t plan on staying but a psychic vision puts her on the trail of a killer. Deanna can’t turn her back on the future victims and becomes immersed in her grandmother’s world. She isn’t sure how to manage the mansion and fortune she inherited or the people who came with it. An ex-priest, a Latina drag queen and a socialite beauty queen are the living entourage. Add in a houseful of ghosts and haunted objects and Deanna needs a little help. In over her head, she struggles to catch a killer who is out to get her as well. 

My review:
With that title I expected this story to be a whole lot funnier than it is.  Once starting it however I found I couldn’t put this book down until it was done. It was fun watching Deanna find herself and grow as a psychic. Now I want to see where Deanna goes from here.  Does she hook up with Greg? John the Judge? Someone else?  This story has a world of well built characters and a good mystery, it is fast paced and well written. This book was previously published as I’m Okay, You’re Dead by Cheryl Dragon but has been updated and revised.  I think the author made the correct choice in publishing this under a different pen name as this story contains very little of the heat that Cheryl Dragon is known for.
