A Ghost of a Chance is an excellent book. The characters are believable, likable and fully developed. Keenan's interaction with the ghosts in his life is both humorous and heart wrenching as the reader is shown the underlying struggle with loneliness that their presence brings. While the succubus was integral to this particular storyline for me her presence was almost intrusive as I wanted to learn more about Keenan and his regular everyday life.
The plot is fresh and captivating; the storyline well developed and seamless. There are a few scenes with the succubus that drag a little, but on the whole the story keeps a smooth, even pace and holds the reader's attention easily.
While the entire story was extremely well written the main character's interaction with his spirit friends truly made the story. The humor is the perfect combination of sophisticated comedy and sophmorish slapstick that makes the reader actually laugh out loud.
Keenan Swanson is your typical, everyday graphic designer. Well, except for the hundreds of pesky, prank-loving poltergeists that make his life interesting (in a Chinese curse sort of way). He finds his situation precarious yet manageable—until witty, smoking-hot coworker Isabella enters the scene and Keenan decides he wants her all for himself. With a horny succubus who has other ideas, a burly city cop determined to lock Keenan away, and an evil entity who’s hell-bent on using Keenan’s seed to create a living demon, the reluctant psychic realizes he just might not come out of this alive—or with heart intact.
