Rumors of My Death by Gina Ranalli
Elizabeth Michelle Aster is having a bad day. She set fire to her kitchen. She accidentally killed her canary. She lost her job. She lost her girlfriend. No wonder people call her Diz-Aster. It couldn’t get any worse. Could it? It can. She hires a guy to murder her, but ‘Bullwinkle’ bungles the job, yet he just keeps trying in one botch-up after another. The ghost of her dead canary is haunting her, and talking to her with a Spanish accent. The mysterious new woman in her life is a bit off herself, and definitely not what she seems. It can’t get any worse than that. At least she still has her collection of Converse Chuck Taylors. Right?
This sounds like such a humourous book. There is an excerpt on the publisher’s website that just furthers this impression. I think this would make a great light read.
