I was a big fan of Evanovich and Stephanie Plum up until about book 11 in the series. For me, things went flat…the writing, the characters…the storylines. As the numbers progressed, nothing changed. The characters didn’t grow, the sexual tension didn’t intensify, nor was a partner decision ever made by Stephanie, and the story appeared to be written in some standard formula—a big writer no-no. I hadn’t quite given up on the series though, and made it to Tricky Twenty-Two, but now I’m done.

In UNFINISHED BUSINESS AN ANGELA PANTHER MYSTERY, #1 AMAZON bestselling author Carolyn Ridder Aspenson introduces her now trademark blend of witty dialog and laugh out loud banter in the first book of her hilarious and heartwarming paranormal chick lit, women’s sleuth mystery series, the Angela Panther Mystery series.
Stay at home wife and mother Angela Panther has a gift: she can talk to the dead.
She just doesn’t know it. Yet.
Long suppressed and forgotten, her gift resurfaces with the death of her mother. Angela considers it a curse, preferring her happy, albeit a tad dull life—fulfilling marriage, overly dramatic daughter, son’s lacrosse games and coffee dates with her BFF to dealing with the unfinished business of the dead.
However, the dead just don’t care. They know she can get messages to their loved ones, and when they need help, it’s Angela they haunt.
As Angela reluctantly delivers messages and crosses over spirits, her mother stays, refusing to go until her own unfinished business is handled, matters that concern her family.
Can Angela discover the truth behind her mother’s decision to stay, and if she does, will her heart survive?

When it comes to family, a mother’s choice is always love.
“Be careful what you wish for because karma has a way of biting you in the butt.” That’s what Angela Panther’s mother, Fran always said.
And boy was she was right.
When Angela first discovered her gift to gab with ghosts, she fought it tooth and nail. But the second she decided it wasn’t so bad—as long as she kept it from going viral—tragedy hit, and the universe decided to teach her a lesson.
With her psychic service disconnected, Angela discovers spirits still find ways to communicate; she’s just not sure who’s doing what, and why.
When her best friend Mel suspects her husband of cheating, she asks Angela to help her prove it. They concoct the perfect plan, but to make it work, they’ll need help from Angela’s mother. There’s just one tiny little problem—Fran’s dead.
As the duo works to catch the cheater, Angela struggles to decipher messages she assumes are from her mother, messages that intensify in their urgency.
Only the messages aren’t from Fran.
Angela finally figures out the messages and knows if she delivers them, she’ll regain her gift, and her secret will go viral. If she doesn’t, her gift is gone forever, and so is her connection to her mother.
Now Angela must choose between the happiness of the spirit’s family and her fears of damaging her own.
In UNBREAKABLE BONDS, AN ANGELA PANTHER MYSTERY, bestselling women’s sleuth mystery author Carolyn Ridder Aspenson’s snarky dialog and hilarious banter between psychic medium Angela and her best friend Mel will keep you laughing, and the touching scenes between the living and the dead will tug at your heart strings and bring tears to your eyes.
Listen to an audio sample of Unbreakable Bonds.
“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
