    Fantastical experiences flow with strength

    Because Jolene Wiley is an American living in Slovenia, I instantly felt at home in the grand, old European City—Ljubljana. At first I was a tourist eavesdropping. Then WHO BY WATER drew me in with seamless dialogue as robust settings took shape and the storyline gathered momentum. Jo is realistic, interesting, and a likeable character—a free spirit. Because she is so real, her fantastical experiences with the dead flow with strength. It makes the web of mysteries even more powerful for readers who do not suspend belief easily. This author has a rare skill. The words fall off the pages as the reader melds into her world. Although character trait development is good throughout the book, I especially liked Jolene’s discovery process—how she learned to accept her gift. The balance between sleuth and vulnerability only magnified the suspense! I look forward to reading book two: OUR LADY OF THE VARIOUS SORROWS

    Very good

    first Im going to start with something that seems completely irrelevant: Ljubljana is really fun to say. The sound rolls around in my head when I read it. It took a hot minute to get used to the pronunciations, but once that was figured out, it was all good. Good story with plenty of "I did not expect that" moments to keep me reading, I was pulled in by the "whats going to happen next." On the one hand, I think I'd like to be Jo when I grow up, she handles her situation with an attitude that was both suborn and resigned. Then again, she has to deal with some stuff that I would nope right out of the country if I had to face. I look forward to the next book.

    Unique and Intelligent Urban Fantasy

    I thoroughly enjoyed being swept away to an old European city that, like so many, blends the old with the new, the living with the dead. Jo Wiley is the perfect guide. An outsider who's made a comfortable life for herself in the foreign land, she soon finds herself at the center of a slew of mysteries, not the least of which involve her communing with the dead. It could help her catch a dear friend's killer, but will she be caught in the crosshairs? And will the secret guardians of the paranormal world ensnare Jo in their web? Joe Wiley is the kind of heroine I like to call a cerebral badass. She's tough and thoughtful by turns, and I enjoyed spending time in her world inhabited by ghosts, friends with benefits, and a side of hot tea. Can't wait for more!
