Happy Snak | Aliens need snack food too

Happy Snak by Nicole Kimberling is one of those serendipitous finds that crosses one’s path all too seldom.  I came across it in one of the newsletters that I subscribe to and the synopsis intrigued me immediately. The book was even better than the synopsis.

The story revolves around Gaia Jones, an entrepreneur who’s only desire is to make a name for her snack bar on A-Ki station. Unfortunately fate interferes when she rushes to the aid of a dying alien. And not just any alien, but Kenjan, the lover of the alien leader, Oziru. Events take an even stranger turn when Oziru asks Gaia to be the guardian of Kenjan’s ghost. Trapped between the human government and alien authorities on A-Ki station, Gaia can’t refuse their generous offer of a new shop in return for her services as guardian. After all, how much trouble can one alien ghost be?
