Has pregnancy affected Brianna's psychic abilities? When Doc Myers, her mother's boyfriend, who also happens to be Brianna's boss, is kidnapped and a respected member of the community turns up dead, this medium doesn't have a clue. It's hard to fight crime when you're fighting 24/7 morning sickness. With ghosts only talking in riddles, Brianna must rely on old-fashioned sleuthing and her intuition to find Doc and stop the murders.

Imagine being a Medium & working with DBs all day!
This is my first dip into the Brianna Sullivan series. Though it is book 14, it stands up well on its own. I don't feel I missed any backstory to this plot at all.
In Gone Fishing, Brianna is a newish bride and expectant mother living in a small town. She works for the town mortuary (but not with the icky stuff) and her husband is chief of police. She comes from a long line of sensitives. Brianna and her grandmother are mediums and her mother is good at 'finding things'.
Brianna takes her gift in stride, sorting through requests for help from long-time ghosts and more urgent demands of the newly or nearly dead. Fortunately, her husband groks her and accepts her help in solving crime - up to a point. I mean, she's pregnant and isn't endangering only herself when she takes (quite a few) risks.
It's a fun listen. Ms. David has created distinct characters and an engaging, but not overly complex plotline. This is the first in the series for narrator Cindy Piller and she does a great job. Her delivery is quick and bright and she has a great grasp of the humor. She's on point with her characters. I hope Cindy and the series continue for years to come.
I certainly can recommend this one for any escapists out there.

Where's Doc, and who shot you?
Just three months after her marriage to local police chief, Cooper, after their disastrous cruise honeymoon, Brianna finds the body of their friend Hank by the lake. he'd been shot. And Doc, with whom he'd been on a fishing trip, had vanished. Then the news came in that two prisoners had escaped from a van transporting them to their murder trial. Could the two incidents be related?
This cozy mystery has everything: quirky, well characterized protagonists, humour, a good thriller mystery, a tiny touch of romantic possibility, goodies, baddies and ghosts who won't play the game, police and more unconventional intervention, all the 'pleasures' of pregnancy and family affections, good dialogue - all nicely written from the first person perspective and equally well narrated by Cindy Piller.
This is, apparently, the 14th book in the Brianna Sullivan mystery series but the first that I have had the great pleasure to read. It won't be my last: I really became fond of certain characters and it works perfectly as a stand alone. I was very fortunate in being freely gifted a complimentary copy of Gone Fishing in Lottawatah by the rights holder, at my request, via Audiobook Boom. Thank you so much. A very enjoyable book.
