In UNFINISHED BUSINESS AN ANGELA PANTHER MYSTERY, #1 AMAZON bestselling author Carolyn Ridder Aspenson introduces her now trademark blend of witty dialog and hilarious banter in the first book of her paranormal cozy mystery series. Filled with romance and friendships reminiscent of chick-lit novels, Unfinished Business is a humorous and heartwarming cozy mystery adventure.
When Angela Panther’s mother Fran Richter wakes her up in the middle of the night ranting about stolen Hershey Bars, Angela thinks her mother’s got a screw loose. And then it hits her. Her mother is dead. Just a few hours before, Angela watched as the funeral home staff nearly dropped her mother’s body off the gurney while sliding her into the hearse. So maybe she’s the one that’s nuttier than a fruitcake?
But Fran keeps popping in and with a volcano full of drama already brewing at home–crazy or not–Angela’s grateful for her mother’s presence. It’s the other ghosts she can do without.
Seems Fran’s return opened a portal between Angela and the other side and ghosts are hitting up the reluctant psychic medium for help. From the naked British guy juggling balls in the coffee shop parking lot to the woman desperately trying to save her sick child, Angela must find a way to balance her life with the unfinished business of the dead.

“Unbreakable Bonds was one of those books I couldn’t put down. The dialogue was snappy, the characters were real, and the plot was perfectly crafted. I LOVE this series. The author makes the paranormal element so incredibly believable in her writing. The ghosts aren’t presented as chilling or scary–they’re real people who need to make one last contact with the living. This novel made me laugh and cry–and the little twist at the end has me excited for where the author is going to take the series! Can’t wait to read more.” —Caroline Fardig, Best Selling Author of It’s Just a Little Crush
“A delightfully funny, slightly irreverent paranormal romp! Especially engaging is the unique twist in the relationship between Angela and her deceased mother; funny and tender, with her mother still advising, admonishing, and cheering. Just as enjoyable, however, are the warm, often humorous, and sometimes even poignant moments with Angela’s daughter, Emily, or her friend Mel. Even though there are several story threads, they mesh nicely and complement each other. This is a story full of fun for anyone searching for a fresh new way to laugh & enjoy the trials of family!” —InD’tale Magazine

“Grab a latté, a box of Kleenex and a clean pair of panties. Carolyn Ridder Aspenson has done it again.”—Lynn/Two Girls & a Book
Suburban housewife Angela Panther didn’t want to communicate with the dead, but the universe had other plans… When an unidentified fourteen-year-old boy takes a dive off an interstate overpass, to solve the case, Atlanta area detective Aaron Banner calls on some unlikely help—from psychic medium Angela Panther. Banner knows she’s legit, and knows she’ll get to the truth about his junior John Doe—was the boy’s death suicide, or murder? The problem is, the spirit can’t remember who he was or the night he died, and to make matters worse, he doesn’t care. Instead, he convinces Angela to focus on another spirit, one different from Angela’s usual, garden-variety ghost.
To complicate matters, Angela’s best friend Mel, newly single and on the prowl, has her sights set on the sexy Detective Banner, and Angela’s mother drives her even more crazy dead than alive.
To solve the dead duo’s dilemmas, armed with little more than their double lattés and a tiny pink bottle of wannabe pepper spray, Angela and her sex-starved sidekick Mel must venture into the dark underbelly of Atlanta and come face-to-face with a gang of saggy-pantsed hoodlums ready to take them out. Will they make it out alive, or end up pushing up daisies alongside the spirits they’re trying to help?
In UNCHARTED TERRITORY, AN ANGELA PANTHER MYSTERY, Carolyn Ridder Aspenson’s witty dialog between psychic medium Angela Panther and her best friend, Mel will keep you laughing out loud, while the tear-jerking scenes between the living and dead will leave you hoping the connection with those we love is never lost.
