Title: Dead to the Max
Series: Max Starr #1
Author: Jasmine Haynes

Thirty-something, down-on-her-luck accountant Max Starr has the unfortunate gift of being psychic, a newly-discovered wrinkle in her already messed-up life. Her husband, Cameron, is dead, killed in a botched 7-11 robbery two years ago. She’s cut herself off from friends, moved out of her San Francisco home in favor of a studio apartment, and dumped her flourishing career as a CPA to do temp work.

And now Max has developed an annoying penchant for attracting the spirits of murdered women. Okay, they possess her. And to exorcize them, Max must unmask their killers. But how?! By stepping into the void their deaths created, taking their jobs, befriending the loved ones they left behind. Max goes wherever she has to go and does whatever she has to do, with a lot of help from the ghost of her late husband Cameron and hunky and very enticing Detective Witt Long.

In Dead to the Max, Book 1 in the Max Starr series, Max steps into the shoes of a murdered accountant and starts to learn that even supposedly boring accountants can have secret lives and secret desires. Max just has to hope the secrets she uncovers don’t get her killed, too.


Dead to the Max begins when Max Starr gets a vision about a woman being murdered. The problem is she doesn't want to believe she is psychic, but her dead husband encourages her to help and find the murder. The problem is she's not only feeling the dead girls emotions, she's also having to relieve some of her emotions from dark times in her life. 

Then add in the detective and you've got a crazy combination of suspense, and paranormal. 

This book was very odd, but in a good way. I never would have thought that the one of the main characters being dead would make it so very interesting. It also made the story really sad. 

The only things that bothered me about the book were how Max reacted to her "gift" and towards the end the choices she made. That bugged me too. 

But other than those two things I thought the book was really good! I enjoyed the plot line, and it was really funny at times as well.
