Finding Justice By Kathi Daley: Review/Giveaway

Details at the end of this post on how to enter to win either print or kindle copies of Finding Justice, and a link to purchase it from Amazon.

This is the first book in the eighth series by very popular and my “Top Ten” favorite author Kathi Daley. She has been writing, self-publishing, and garnering fans since 2013 with Halloween Hijinx in her first series Zoe Donovan Mystery, and with seventy-two books and counting, she’s never looked back. In 2016, Henrey Press came knocking and has re-released the Tj Jensen series reinventing the book covers and introducing Tj to a new set of fans. Every single series provides a clever mystery unraveled by using realistic investigation techniques usually in tandem with law enforcement; the main characters are strong and clever women, often dealing with some vulnerabilities and navigating family and relationships, but supported by equally strong, maybe quirky characters, and a few fur friends. Finding Justice does not disappoint. Get in now, Finding Answers is set to be released in 2018.

bookKathi Daley introduces us to her newest heroine Harmony Carson working tirelessly to live her dream by building an animal shelter in Rescue, Alaska, but the age-old Catch-22 has reared its head: need a grant approved to build the facility and get it up and running, but can’t get the grant unless she already has the facility up and running. It’s worse than disappointing, and while trying to come up with her next move with BFF Chloe Rivers, one she isn’t thrilled to consider, her call is interrupted…a vision. Harmony has a unique psychic ability; she senses when people are injured or dying, and now…it’s two kids, one seriously injured, and a big winter storm is on its way. She leaps into action trying to maintain the connection while memories flash in her mind about the night she had her first vision and the disastrous results. Exciting, engaging, and clever…no juvenile hocus-pocus with Harmony’s psychic abilities; it all works very well. And the mystery, ‘finding justice’ for a friend, is personal with implications that could require someone needing to be ‘rescued.’

Wow! Kathi always has her characters involved in interesting occupations, but always animal friendly. Harmony is one of an eight-member search-and-rescue team with leader/bar owner/guardian Jake Cartwright, Sarge on the radio, firefighter Austin, Landon the brains, helicopter pilot Dani, and Dr. Jordan Fairchild, along with a large cranky Maine coon named Moose who seems to provide a calming effect on Harmony when the stress of her psychic connection is extreme. Additionally, she has a plethora of animals she hopes her animal rescue plans will support and provide room for more. Along with twists and turns, suspects and alibis, and more than one motive to consider, it’s the signature character-driven story that delivers the most engaging fun: the interactions and connections between Harmony and Jake who became her guardian through very tragic events, the one-who-will-not-be-contacted Harley Medford, a one-time high school kiss now famous actor, and all of her animals from dogs to cats to rabbits to a blind mule named Homer. It is a hit…all covered in snow!

Finding Justice earns 5/5 Psychic Visions of Entertainment!
