From the Award-winning Author of Nearly Departed in Deadwood!

“What a voice! Hilarious, original, and genuinely wonderful. This fresh and feisty mystery will instantly win your heart. Loved it!” ~HANK PHILLIPPI RYAN, Anthony, Agatha and Macavity winning author

“A smart, sassy, sexy and wonderfully resourceful heroine. Move over Stephanie Plum—Vi Parker is here!” ~JOHN KLAWITTER, award-winning Tinseltown writer/director, and author of the award-winning Hollywood Havoc action thriller novels

***You’ll laugh. You’ll cringe. You’ll want even more!***

Someone is spreading rumors around Deadwood that Violet Parker likes to chat with dead folks.

With her reputation endangered, her bank account on the verge of extinction, and her career at risk of going up in flames, Violet is desperate. When the opportunity to sell another vintage home materializes, she grabs it, even though this “haunted” house was recently the stage for a two-act, murder-suicide tragedy.

Ghost or no ghost, Violet knows this can’t be as bad as the last house of horrors she tried to sell, but sexy Doc Nyce has serious doubts. Her only hope of hanging on to her job is to prove that the so-called, ghostly sightings are merely the eccentric owner’s optical delusions.

But someone—or something—in the house wants Violet stopped...dead.

“... sexy, spunky Violet Parker will blow you away.” ~LUCY BURDETTE, author & Sisters in Crime past-president

“Ann Charles writes a top-notch mystery that is fast-paced, complex, and laugh out loud funny! A genuinely exciting and sexually suspenseful mystery, Charles delivers in her second Violet Parker novel set in Deadwood, South Dakota. Fast-moving with twists even a seasoned Mystery Reader won’t see coming, this is a can’t-put-it-down book.” ~MARY BUCKHAM, award-winning Romantic Suspense author

“... mystery, humor, romance, and fun all wrapped up in a great book.”

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ann Charles does it again with Book 2 In the Deadwood Series 10. Mai 2011
Von Heather Powers - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Optical Delusions in Deadwood (Deadwood Mystery Series)

An exciting trip back to Deadwood to visit with Violet-real-estate extraordinaire/part-time sleuth. This time with ghostly encounters in the mix. I liked how the story started just a short time after the first book ends. A rollicking romp through the streets of Deadwood sprinkled with sexual innuendo from Harvey,Violet's cantankerous friend to the steamy romance scenes between Doc & Violet. It all mixes together like lemons and sugar to make an inventive lemonade. I absolutely love Violet's eccentric kids. They remind me of some of the shenanigans of my children:)
The sexual tension between Doc & Violet left me with the desire to shake the two of them and say get with it and get together:)
The ghostly twist whet my appetite, wondering what other experiences are waiting in the wings for Violet and will she finally become a believer?
Another fun read that left me smiling. The ending left me anxiously awaiting book 3.
Bravo, Ann Charles for your wit and humor. Your masterful storytelling makes this a gem to read.
I recommend this book to readers who like mysteries, romance, with a dash of paranormal.

I met the author at a waterfront book festival a few weeks ago. What attracted me to her books was the book jacket. So many new writers tend to have jackets that look like a toss away from a B movie. Jacket was professional and well done.

The book is and smart. First of all the main character is not a 20 yr old ," I'm so pretty and misunderstood...and so pretty..and angry...and I have POWERS!!!". This chick was 35..single Mom of two intense kids. She is working as a real estate agent with a villian as a co worker..I loved the character because she was able to brush things off , as she wasn't a 20 yr old nymphette..and her insecurities were honest and hyyyysterical!! The Man..was good looking..all the stuff we gals like to read..but he had his own bag of oddness to make him less than perfect. It's refreshing as the babe in these books tend to have it all together while the hero swoops in and saves the heroine in some fancy ensemble (L Hamilton- hear my plea..thigh high boots?? STOPPPPP!!!)

This has something for like mystery, humor and a little gore (serial killers terrify me...give me a monster anytime). The main characters dialogue was hysterical and honest. I downloaded the 2nd book immediately and it was just as great if not better.

I am ready for the 3rd...I was ready for the 3rd after the 2nd but I supposse I will just have to wait. :)

4.0 von 5 Sternen Violet - you've done it again 19. November 2011
Von Sandra - Veröffentlicht auf
This time - (thank goodness) I wasn't on a plane when I read the next installment of the indomitable Violet via her conduit Ann Charles. I'm not a huge reader of first person, mystery or even humor but this book like the first has me hooked! Ms Charles weaves a great story with unforgettable characters, it has it all including paranormal and romance. I really am enjoying this series and I can't wait for the next book. (to tide me over I've just purchased Dance of the Winnebagos I think that title says it all - LOL)
My only disappointment it wasn't long enough. Can't wait to find out what trouble Violet gets into next and what happens between her and Doc.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Half and Half 11. April 2012
Von Jane alexander - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
I rate this book half and half. Half bad and half good. OPTICAL DELUSIONS is the second book in the Deadwood Mystery Series. Unfortunately I read it first. The book goes back to the first book with dozens of references that lost me. A line or two would suffice. So I would have to say: read the books in sequence.

Our hero: Violet Parker, is plucky, witty, and horny but to me is rather dense and needy. This is not a good thing for me if she is to be my hero. Much of the book concerns her second guessing herself. This gets old fast. Her lover, Doc, is sketchily written and comes across as a 'goodguy' stereotype. In fact most of the males in this book are broad stereotypes.

She comes across to me as dishonest and disengenious. She constantly makes excuses for why she isn't forthcoming with her boss, the cops, her friend, her family and her boyfriend. She, in effect, creates her own problems. There are times I want to say to her: TALK TO THE POLICE (or your friend, or your boyfriend)...but noooooooo. Finally, I found her jealousy to be infantile. I want my heros human, even with flaws but not unlikeable.

The good parts of the book are in the dialogue when Violet says something outloud and then adds a quiet aside. These are laugh outloud moments. Violet is sexy and constantly thinking about getting laid. There is much SEXPLANATION, so be sure to read all the nibble/lick parts as (not believeable) Violet and Doc 'multitask'. Skim over this and you will miss the major plot points.

All in all I give it 2.5 stars.
