Disappearing Nightly by Laura Resnick
Esther Diamond does not have a paranormal bone in her body. What she does have is a role in a play featuring magic. Everything changes when Golly Gee, the lead actress, disappears for real during a performance. As her understudy Esther has to solve the mystery before she has to take Golly Gee’s place and risk becoming another real disappearance.
Laura Resnick has written a funny paranormal mystery filled with quirky characters some of whom do have paranormal abilities. Along with a great plot there is a hint of romance between Esther and the police detective. Watch for the phone call where the detective describes Esther to his mother. That scene is just one of the laugh out loud moments in Disappearing Nightly.
Disappearing Nightly by Laura Resnick is a great start in a new Paranormal Mystery series. Dopplegangster is the second book.
Luan published Disappearing Nightly by Laura Resnick in 2006.
The paperback version is out of print but you can do what I did and purchase Disappearing Nightly from Fictionwise.
