Leaving Lottawatah by Evelyn David is the 11th book in the Brianna Sullivan Mysteries series. A novella-length story, Leaving Lottawatah continues the spooky, yet funny saga of reluctant psychic Brianna Sullivan who planned to travel the country in her motor home looking for adventure, but unexpectedly ended up in a small town in Oklahoma.
Things are messy in Paradise. The happily engaged couple of Brianna Sullivan and Cooper Jackson are anything but. Angry words set Brianna and Leon, her bulldog companion, off on a road trip, but it's hard to run away from home if everyone wants to come with you. Before she can leave town, Brianna is unexpectedly joined on her travels by Sassy Jackson, her maybe ex-future mother-in-law, plus Beverly Heyman and daughter Sophia, both still grieving over a death in the family.
Destination: A psychic convention in America's most haunted hotel. But they haven't reached their destination before Brianna is confronted by two ghosts demanding help in capturing the serial killer who murdered them decades earlier. Even more worrisome, another young woman has gone missing. It's up to Brianna and her road crew to stop the serial killer from striking again. Brianna has hard questions for the spirits surrounding her, and for herself. Does she want to marry Cooper? Is it time to hit the open road again and leave Lottawatah behind? Or will the ghosts of her past continue to haunt her wherever she goes?

Although Leaving Lottawatah is the eleventh book in this series, I had no problems following the story line or working out who the characters were. It is a short, but delightful cozy mystery that works fine as a standalone.
The story centers around Brianna Sullivan who has a special talent: she can see and communicate with ghosts. After an argument with her fiancé Cooper, Brianna and her loyal bulldog Leon are about to flee Lottawatah, Oklahoma, in their trusted motor home, but instead end up heading for a psychic convention with Sassy, Brianna’s ex-future mother-in-law, and a mother and young daughter who have recently lost their husband/father. Confronted by a ghost in the most haunted hotel in America, the little group becomes involved in the search for a serial killer who has been abducting girls. As another girl is missing, Brianna has to use her skill to help the dead and the living as well as work out the future of her relationship with her detective fiancé.
Leaving Lottawatah was a lovely mix of paranormal mystery, romance and humor. It was fast paced and entertaining. Brilliant for dog lovers, as Leon the bulldog was a very adorable character.
The narration was okay. More reading than acting here. At times, the narrator’s intonation reminded me of books being read aloud at school. Some bits, such as the child’s voice and the singing, were done very well. Lisa Kelly was a new narrator for me, and I would try another book narrated by her. The production was okay.
