Book Review: Uncharted Territory, An Angela Panther Mystery By Carolyn Ridder Aspenson

Uncharted Territory, An Angela Panther Mystery
By Carolyn Ridder Aspenson
Genre: Mystery

Suburban housewife Angela Panther didn’t want to communicate with the dead, but the universe had other plans…

When an unidentified fourteen-year-old boy takes a dive off an interstate overpass, to solve the case, Atlanta area detective Aaron Banner calls on some unlikely help–from psychic medium Angela Panther. Banner knows she’s legit, and knows she’ll get to the truth about his junior John Doe–was the boy’s death suicide, or murder? The problem is, the spirit can’t remember who he was or the night he died, and to make matters worse, he doesn’t care. Instead, he convinces Angela to focus on another spirit, one different from Angela’s usual, garden-variety ghost. 

To complicate matters, Angela’s best friend Mel, newly single and on the prowl, has her sights set on the sexy Detective Banner, and Angela’s mother drives her even more crazy dead than alive.

To solve the dead duo’s dilemmas, armed with little more than their double latt├ęs and a tiny pink bottle of wannabe pepper spray, Angela and her sex-starved sidekick Mel must venture into the dark underbelly of Atlanta and come face-to-face with a gang of saggy-pantsed hoodlums ready to take them out. Will they make it out alive, or end up pushing up daisies alongside the spirits they’re trying to help?

In UNCHARTED TERRITORY, AN ANGELA PANTHER MYSTERY, Carolyn Ridder Aspenson’s witty dialog between psychic medium Angela Panther and her best friend, Mel will keep you laughing out loud, while the tear-jerking scenes between the living and dead will leave you hoping the connection with those we love is never lost.

My Review

This is a GREAT paranormal mystery. I have not read the earlier Angela Panther Mystery books, but now I must. This is a perfect stand alone novel and the author does a supreme job in creating a main character that you want more of.  

Angela Panther can see and speak with dead people. She has helped locate the killer of a murdered child and now she is being asked to help solve the mysterious death of a teen boy who is thought to have jumped off the bridge. But, Angela gets more than she bargained for when the spirit of a young girl comes to her and she is set on identifying the teen as well.

I really enjoyed that Angela maintains a relationship with her mother who has passed on. It's a sweet and funny bond as they stay connected through the good and bad times. Her mom plays a main role in the novel along with Angela's best friend, Mel. 

I have been reading some hardcore thrillers lately, so I found Uncharted Territory to be a nice change. It contained the mystery that I adore in books, but was also filled with a lot of light-hearted and comical commentary!
