Ghost Trippin' by Cherie Claire
Series: Viola Valentine Mystery #4
Genres: Cozy Mystery
John Valentine left home for a science conference and never returned, his family chalking it up to the divorced father’s mid-life crisis. But when a body is found on the old family homestead, his daughter Viola must piece together the clues her father left behind. Along for the ride are her witchy Aunt Mimi, her uptight lawyer sister Portia and her sometimes ex-husband Thibault Boudreaux, otherwise known as TB. What they discover on this crazy ghost trip through Texas will be much more than they anticipated.
Ghost Trippin’ continues the story of Viola Valentine, who changes her life after Hurricane Katrina and follows her dream of being a travel writer. But the storm also blew open a psychic door and now she sees ghosts who have died by water. As she travels the South in her new career she must also solve mysteries that appear with apparitions. But the one person she hopes to speak to — her daughter who died of leukemia years before — continues to elude her. Or does she?

This book is part of a series and I was really a little lost because I hadn’t read any of the previous books. There are things that happened in the previous books that I felt I needed a little more information about. It would have been great to get a little bit of an epilogue or introduction that let you know a little more about what had happened.
That being said the characters are well written. Viola is a psychic who sees people that have died by water. I loved that little aspect. Not just that see was an everyday psychic. She has a descendant of angels for a husband not to mention her whole crazy family. Those characters alone made this a good book. They are the reason I gave it four stars and not less. Like I said it would have been awesome had I read it after the others.
