This weekly meme was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners. To participate, choose a random book from your TBR and show it off. Which sounds easy enough until you have to decide how to choose that book! I think I will use a different way each week, like picking a color or number of pages. I will let you know each week how I chose the book and then some thing interesting about it, like how it ended up on the list or why I want to read. Got it? Okay let’s get started.
This week’s pick is my most recent addition to my TBR and I couldn’t be more excited about it. It is by a local author, whose books I have read and loved many times. Though I will admit that I haven’t read them all. I should remedy that! Anyways, this one sounds devine and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!

Summary from GoodReads:
Meet Leda Foley: devoted friend, struggling travel agent, and inconsistent psychic. When Leda, sole proprietor of Foley’s Flights of Fancy, impulsively re-books Seattle PD detective Grady Merritt’s flight, her life changes in ways she couldn’t have predicted.
After watching his original plane blow up from the safety of the airport, Grady realizes that Leda’s special abilities could help him with a cold case he just can’t crack.
Despite her scattershot premonitions, she agrees for a secret reason: her fiancé’s murder remains unsolved. Leda’s psychic abilities couldn’t help the case several years before, but she’s been honing her skills and drawing a crowd at her favorite bar’s open-mic nights, where she performs Klairvoyant Karaoke—singing whatever song comes to mind when she holds people’s personal effects. Now joined by a rag-tag group of bar patrons and pals alike, Leda and Grady set out to catch a killer—and learn how the two cases that haunt them have more in common than they ever suspected.
I can’t quite decide if I like the cover or not. I think it is pretty cool, but something about it kind of bugs me too, but I can’t say what that something is. The summary is what is clinching the deal for me here though. It sounds amazing and I always enjoy reading books set in Seattle! And I so want to go to that bar where she does Klairvoyant Karaoke, that sounds like it would be a blast!
