Nikki, at age 21, goes to visit a psychic. This psychic tells her in graphic detail all the qualities that her “soul mate” will have and the words of the psychic are imprinted on her mind… “Remember he’s nice to look at, nice to see, but if you chase him, he will flee…”
Fast forward and Nikki is now 38 and still hasn’t met Mr. Wonderful. She decides to follow her friend, Siobhan’s advice, and move from Australia to California, to practice law with Siobhan. While in California, Nikki meets her psychic’s omen, the man named “CJ”, and the twists and turns of the psychic’s revelations begin between Nikki and CJ.
I could totally relate to Nikki, as intelligent as she is, can’t seem to save herself from tripping and falling into anything and everything. The situations this girls puts herself in just had me laughing like crazy. I absolutely love the way the author incorporates Nikki’s asides into the book.
There were two things about this book that I didn’t like: 1. It felt like one author wrote the first half of the book, and another author wrote the second half of the book. The writing was not the same in the second half of the book, as it seemed the wit was gone from the book. 2. This book abruptly ends and really ticked me off. Here I was enjoying the adventures of Nikki, and then poof she’s gone! I am assuming there is going to be a sequel or I am going to be very upset!
In any event, I would recommend this book to romance lovers, paranormal romance readers, and readers who like to enjoy a good book with a laugh.
