Reviews

BE SURE TO READ THE FIRST
ODESSA JONES MYSTERY!

A GLIMMER OF DEATH

"The creator of Newark private eye Tamara Hayle dials back the wisecracks and bumps up the paranormal hints to launch a new series featuring a widowed African American realtor whose workplace is a hot mess."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Widow Odessa Jones, the psychically gifted narrator of this strong series launch from Wesley, can see glimmers, auralike colors that correspond to a person's emotional state. . . . Wesley perfectly captures her protagonist's emotions, including the lingering melancholy she feels for her late husband. . . . Readers will hope to see a lot more of kind, empathetic Odessa."
--Publishers Weekly

"There's crispness in Wesley's plotting and sparkle in the supporting characters....There's also something oddly comforting about a black woman in fiction who isn't weighed down by societal pathology and who can appreciate a good glass of merlot and reruns of Downton Abbey as much as the next woman. In between heavier mystery fare, this unicorn of a black cozy is a welcome palate cleanser."
--Los Angeles Times
