Book 1: Tara Sharp Series

Writing as Marianne Delacourt

Tara Sharp can see auras, and it’s ruining her life.

When she tries to turn her inconvenient secret into a paying gig, her first job lands her in the middle of a tug of war between the biggest, baddest crime lord in town and the hottest business man Tara has ever met.

With only a narcoleptic ex-roadie, her pet galah and a vanilla slice for back up, Tara is ready to take on trouble with a capital ‘T’.

Amazon Review

Sharp Shooter is a funny, suspenseful paranormal mystery that makes me smile when I think about it. Tara Sharp is a full-fledged character anyone who’s ever fumbled with ‘adulting’ will identify with in an instant – she’s at the stage where her friends seem to have found their niches in life, but she’s still single, living on her parents’ property and trying to carve out a stable income for herself. Private investigation is something she almost accidentally falls into, but she’s aided by her paranormal sense of the auras of people around her, which adds an intriguing twist to her investigation methods. I haven’t read any other books in the genre with this element, and it really enhanced the story for me.
