Violet is an account who left home when she got the chance. She moved from Portland, OR to Portland, ME. Her mother is Moonbeam, psychic and into anything alternative. She is back home to help her mom out after she falls and breaks a few bones. Drew owns the bar next door. His bar also happens to have (male) exotic dancing for a few night a week.
This was a fun story of opposites attract. I liked Violet's knowledge of trivia and recognition of various songs Drew would play which would cause her to blurt out things during reading that were true. I liked Drew's attraction to Violet, even though she was similar to his ex-wife (and what he didn't think he needed).
I did think the ending was a rushed and abrupt and an epilogue would have helped.
