Ghosts, Mystery, and Fashion. Can this diva solve her own murder, or will she be stuck in limbo forever?

After recovering from the shock of seeing her own dead body, (still dressed to kill from last night's party) fashion model, Jaclyn Jade, discovers she's a ghost with a choice. She can either immediately go back to Hell, do nothing and stay in limbo, or find the reason she fell short of grace and advance to Heaven.

Because she was murdered, Jaclyn hopes that finding her killer will unravel this mystery. With the help of a timid closet-psychic who can speak to the dead, and a handsome, yet arrogant, ghost of a man from the roaring 20s, her search for answers initiates a quirky journey of self-discovery. Personalities, eras, and worlds collide as this mismatched trio race against time to solve the mystery of Jaclyn's Ghost.

Have you ever sat a wondered what happens to you after you die? I can guarantee that the thought never crossed Jaclyn’s mind. Spoiled and self centered, Jaclyn’s world revolved around...well Jaclyn, of course, and she gave special consideration to her hot clothing designer boyfriend.

So waking up dead after she had just left a fabulous party was just not in this supermodel’s plans. Even more disturbing was the fact that a large and very beautiful man who was also dead, and evidently living in her apartment, was her sole source of information. How long had he been there and OMG what had he seen? And seriously, Earth is really Hell? It’s too bad that Logan seriously needed to work on his people skills. She really could use a friend right about now!

Jaclyn has 48 hours to figure out why she wasn’t elevated to Heaven in order to get into Heaven or its back to Hell for her, literally. But since Earth is Hell, is that really a bad thing?

Vann takes you on Jaclyn’s growth with the help of some delightful ghosts, breathers, and as well as some other beings that kept it interesting. This story had me laughing out loud through out most of it with just a hint of romance, mystery, and despair thrown into the mix. It had a great pace and the ending really throws you. It was totally unpredictable! I really enjoyed this book!
