Description

Tara Sharp should be just another unemployable, twenty-something, ex-private schoolgirl . . . but she has the gift - or curse as she sees it - of reading people's auras. The trouble is, auras sometimes tell you things about people they don't want you to know.

When a family friend recommends Mr Hara's Paralanguage School, Tara decides to give it a whirl - and graduates with flying colours. So when Mr Hara picks up passes on a job for a hot-shot lawyer she jumps at the chance despite some of his less-than-salubrious clients.

Tara should know better than to get involved when she learns the job involves mob boss Johnny Vogue. But she's broke and the magic words 'retainer' and 'bonus' have been mentioned. Soon Tara finds herself sucked into an underworld 'situation' that has her running for her life.

Sharp Shooter is a hilarious, action-packed novel and Tara Sharp is Triple F: Funny. Fast. Feisty.

    Tara is finally going to accept her gift. A psych evaluation finds the truth - she sees auroras. The doctor sends her to Mr. Hara to learn how to understand and hone her ability, but when he goes on vacation and recommends her for a job she ends up wanted by the mob. This is a funny, book along the lines of Stephanie Plum. I really enjoyed its twists and the characters quirky personas.
  • Playful and fun!

    Not a heavy, violence-ridden story, but enough danger to keep it interesting. The characters a just a tiny bit hard to believe at times, but the dialog and interactions are very nicely written with sophisticated humor both in word and deed. Recommending both this story and this author.

    New-to me-this author. So enjoyed this book!!! Funny in just the right flow of the story! Laughing many times! Kept me reading longer at a time than doing much needed house chores! I will be purchasing more of her books. This is totally unbiased opinion. It was a free book.
