People say karma's a...well, you know. Personally, I don't think I'm that bad. It's not like I wanted this job. I wasn't even in my right mind when I accepted it. 

Now, I'm surrounded by crazy coworkers like Lady Luck, who's a bit of a tramp, and Murphy's Law, who's a bumbling oaf.  

But the worst is Fate. He's got a problem with transfers like myself and I have to see him constantly. It's unavoidable, since we're hunting the same man, my murderer.

About the Author
Donna Augustine’s lifelong ambition was to become the crazy cat lady. Unfortunately, when family allergies cut short her dream of living in a house full of furries, she turned her ambitions toward writing. Combining her love of fantasy, scifi, horror and romance, she tries to string together interesting twists on urban fantasy.

A native of New Jersey, when she isn’t writing, or overdosing on caffeine, she can occasionally be spotted in disguise at the local dog park.

4 out of 5 stars
Karma is searching for her murderer.  How many people can say they were given that opportunity?  A lawyer in life, after her death she is given the opportunity to work helping others...or rather bringing down Karma on others.  Things don't always turn out quite as she planned, though, and as she learns her new position she must also deal with the hardships of it.

Karma is a great character.  She is spirited and tenacious, never backing down from what she believes, all the while grieving for her lost life.  During the course of this story we meet a great cast of characters, including (but not limited to) Murphy, Luck, Cupid, Death and of course Fate.  Karma and Fate...What can go wrong?  There is a lot of tension between the two of them, in a most delicious way.

The pace of the story was great and the plot original and fun.  I will be looking for more from this series and this new to me author.
