Early Praise for LIKE A FLY ON THE WALL

“With a main character who is an “intuitive counselor,” the mystery is as much a spiritual journey as it is a character study. Or more precisely, it’s a study of quirky characters. This has the makings of a highly entertaining series and, hopefully, we’ll see more of the Like a Fly On the Wall Detective Agency. The cases covered in this entry involve only the principal cast introduced here. The potential once they take on clients promises to be entertaining.”

On July 11th William Morrow is pleased to release LIKE A FLY ON THE WALL (William Morrow Trade Paperback Original; ISBN: 978-0062566454), the much anticipated debut novel from intuitive life coach and now author, Simone Kelly. A suspenseful and sensual novel filled with intrigue, sex, and twists, it will be the perfect read on those hot summer nights!

Meet Jacques Berradi. Moroccan-born and Manhattan-raised, his genuine, sexy-smooth allure goes hand in hand with a unique gift. Since Jacques was young, he has had the ability to read peoples’ energies, communicate with spirit guides, and even catch glimpses of people’s futures. Now a professional “intuitive counselor,” Jacques’s clients pay him handsomely for his insight. Unfortunately, Jacques’s psychic abilities don’t come with an off switch to tune out the world’s noise, nor do they always provide him with easy answers; recently Jacques has begun having dark, alarming dreams about his beloved father, a Moroccan immigrant who died when he was a boy.

Meet Kylie Collins, an adventurous, Miami twentysomething who is trying to find her footing after being laid off from a cushy music industry job. When a mishap brings them together, Kylie is instantly mesmerized by Jacques’s cool demeanor and intuitive abilities, and he’s captivated by her outgoing charm and breezy good looks. Seeking to learn more about her family history—including the identity of the father she’s never known—Kylie visits Jacques’s office to gain some insight about her future, and about her free-spirited and headstrong Jamaican mother, True.

But on the night that they meet, a rolling blackout cuts off power throughout Miami. Kylie and Jacques, and a few of his clients, head to the only place in the neighborhood with enough light to see: Like a Fly on the Wall Detective Agency. There, Kylie serendipitously lands herself the perfect new job as an apprentice private eye.

As partners, Jacques and Kylie are an unstoppable duo. Can Jacques’s intuition reveal the scandalous history of Kylie’s mother and father? Will Kylie’s newfound detective skills uncover evidence about the death of Jacques’s father? And will the chemistry that charges their friendship bubble over into something much, much hotter…?
