A Medium’s Birthday Surprise by Chariss K Walker is a fun quirky tale that is unlike anything I have ever read. The premise for this story is original, creative and well thought-out. The storyline and plot is unique and flows nicely with easy to read prose and wording. This story really shows readers what is going on with a light uplifting tone and uncomplicated phrasing and expression that never skips a beat. Chariss K Walker has a clear concise voice that resonates with every word. I was completely drawn in from the very first chapter and couldn’t put this book down. Filled with mystery and intrigue, I found the subject line to be very interesting as I do believe that people can commune and interact with spirits. Therefore, even though this is a fiction tale, I could still relate and found it to be believable and interesting.
A very entertaining read, A Medium’s Birthday Surprise, is viable and warm with a colorful cast of characters ranging from easy going Becky, to the non-conforming siblings, to the frantic and unsettled dead folks. The characters are well developed and fleshed out. I thought that author, Chariss K Walker, did a splendid job of creating fun likable personalities that readers will love to get to know. The descriptions bring this supernatural story to life with vivid visual depictions, making for a very enjoyable spiritual read. Highly recommended by Chick Lit Cafe.
