Publisher's Summary

She's betting on a ghost. And taking a chance on love…

Losing her memory in a mysterious tragedy years before left Mojo Sheepshanks not knowing who she is or how to get on with her life. Now the wisecracking Mojo, who hangs out at Bad-Ass Bert's Biker Saloon in Cave Creek, Arizona, suddenly begins seeing ghosts...and discovering clues to her real identity. Meanwhile, sexy cop Tucker Darroch has her heart racing and her passions revved up to maximum overdrive, but is it safe to let go and love the man? Really love him?

Everything becomes even more complicated when a wealthy man claiming to be Mojo's long-lost uncle turns up. Not only that, she's being stalked by her ex-con half-brother! As she and Tucker work to uncover the facts, she'll need all her savvy and strange new talent to keep someone from burying her - and the truth.

Smart, Funny but Not Silly

I really enjoyed Deadly Gamble, my first book by Linda Lael Miller. Mojo (28) was a sarcastic, amusing and endearing woman who decides to become a detective; Tucker was a hunky cop who managed to be both sexy and good-hearted.

I was leery when Mojo starts seeing dead people, but her "gift" was portrayed in a way that made it blend with the mystery, not overwhelm it. Mojo's friends, family and pets kept the story moving fast with lots of laughs.

Great Story

The story was great, loved the concept and the characters. There was a point toward the end where it started to feel a little long and redundant, but not long after that it really picked up and carried all the way to the end. Overall great book and super performance.

wow, wonderful narrator!

the book is good kind of reminds me of Stephanie plum series with the silly stuff that character did. I'm reading the next book for sure. the narrator is what took this book over the top. I'm looking for more books with her as a narrator for sure.

Too Bad Series was never continued

Love these characters, fun paranormal mystery thriller. Mojo Sheepshank has a murky past, who is witty and personable, love her. Mojo wakes up seeing ghosts. Her life spirals out of control after her dead ex shows up in her bed. Great cast of characters, intriguing plot, well written and sad this is only a two book series. Great narrator.
