Synopsis (Goodreads):
When Las Vegas cocktail waitress Violetta Graves is wrongly accused of killing her ex-boyfriend, she knows the odds are stacked against her. Still, she’ll do almost anything to avoid using her gift (hah!): the bad-luck-inducing ability to talk to ghosts.

Being considered a murder suspect by hunky homicide detective Matthew Stone motivates Vie to straighten out her priorities. She’s being framed by an unknown killer, her uptight sister has lost her ever-lovin’ mind, and the hot guy she can’t resist might have to arrest her. Vie has no choice but to turn to the supernatural for help, and try to remain in good spirits.
Thoughts on In Good Spirits: Super fast and quirky read. Vie is sort of...I don't know. Directionless. The story was short so there wasn't a lot of chance to delve deep into her as a character, but it felt like she was just kinda of drifting through life. Drifting while occasionally getting hit with the stick of terrible luck, as it turns out.

Because losing a small claims case against a douchey ex the same day you're suspected of his murder is FANTASTICALLY bad as far as timing goes. I mean, that's some serious motive there, amirite?

Cute, but I wouldn't have minded a little more story. Vie seems like she leads an interesting life. I just wanted more.
