A Mansion, A Drag Queen, and A New Job: Deanna Oscar Paranormal Mystery #1 by C. C. Dragon
Not your average cozy mystery, I have no idea what I was expecting when I started it, but I was amazed. Please read on for my review of
A Mansion, A Drag Queen, and A New Job
I have had this book for more than two years in my shelves. Yet, I couldn’t feel a pull towards it.
But, I have challenged myself to read outside my comfort box and limit the unread paperbacks that have stacked!
So, Deanna arrives in New Orleans and finds out, not only that her grandma has died but also, that she has inherited her mansion. A mansion that happens to be haunted.
Things start pilling up. Like a dead girl, unexpected ghosts, a drag queen that helps with the house, and a couple of men interested in her.
Oh! Let’s not forget a not – so – friendly ghost, that would kill her, if he could.
The title and the cover art misled me. I have no idea what I could be waiting from the book, but I got many. Mostly laughs and a good mystery.
The book itself could use a bit of editing more, but those parts were few and I could mostly make out what was supposed to be there.
I have read mysteries. I’ve read ghost stories. I have read mysteries where the ghosts are to be blamed for the murders. But I still have nothing to compare with this book.
It was very good and I highly suggest reading it!
Seems to me like I need to be taking chances out of my comfort zone more often!
Have you read this book? Does anyone else but me know about it? Please let me know!
And do make sure you give this author a chance, if you haven’t already!

Psychic medium Deanna Oscar wants to be a normal psychology professor at a nice college. The universe has other ideas. When the grandmother she never knew dies and leaves her everything, Deanna enters a different world.
In New Orleans anything goes and her psychic powers aren’t a secret. She doesn’t plan on staying but a psychic vision puts her on the trail of a killer. Deanna can’t turn her back on the future victims and becomes immersed in her grandmother’s world. She isn’t sure how to manage the mansion and fortune she inherited or the people who came with it.
An ex-priest, a Latina drag queen and a socialite beauty queen are the living entourage. Add in a houseful of ghosts and haunted objects and Deanna needs a little help. In over her head, she struggles to catch a killer who is out to get her as well.
