Cover Reveal for Unbreakable Bonds, An Angela Panther Novel by Carolyn Ridder Aspenson


A couple of months ago, I read Carolyn Ridder Aspenson’s novel, Unfinished Business, An Angela Panther Novel. It was engaging, funny, and even very touching. Carolyn’s second novel, Unbreakable Bonds, is scheduled for release in November, so I would like to share the cover reveal, as well as a heads up on the storyline. Can’t wait to read more about Fran, and you’re gonna love the book trailer below. 

When Angela’s best friend Mel thinks her husband is having an affair, she turns to Angela for help. The two come up with the perfect plan to catch him in the act, but to make it work, they’ll need help from Angela’s mother, Fran.

There’s just one teeny, little problem.

Fran’s dead.

And since Angela’s psychic gift is currently out of service, connecting with Fran is a little complicated.

While Angela searches for a way to fix her psychic radar, Fran and a multitude of other ghosts continue to try to make a connection. And it’s driving Angela crazy.

But Fran won’t let her daughter’s problem stop her from helping someone she loves and she sets out to catch the cheater on her own, using a few tricks and tools from the afterlife to get it done.

Book two of the Angela Panther series will be available November, 2013 in e-book and paperback. 


And for those of you who haven’t read Unfinished Business, here’s a little taste. 

Angela Panther is an ordinary stay at home mom with a satisfying, albeit slightly mundane life.

Things get a little crazy for Angela when her mother dies and comes back as a ghost.

It seems Fran’s got some unfinished business on earth and she’s determined to get it done, no matter what.

But Fran’s not the only ghost with unfinished business and her return opens a portal between Angela and the afterlife. Now every Tom, Dick and Harry ghost around comes knockin’ on Angela’s psychic door, looking for help.

And it’s a pain in the butt.

Having her mother around is a double-edged sword for Angela. On the one hand, she’s glad to still have the connection, but on the other, death has given Fran some annoying abilities and she’s seriously trying Angela’s patience.

When Fran tells Angela her teenage daughter Emily is in trouble, Angela decides to let her mother use her ghostly skills to keep tabs on the girl. 

Well, not all of her ghostly skills.

But that doesn’t stop Fran from causing a little trouble – just to protect her granddaughter, of course.

Now Angela has to find a way to keep her old life in tact and help the dead with their unfinished business, all while trying to keep her mother out of trouble.

And it’s a lot for one woman to handle.
