Grounds to Kill - Wendy Roberts

I try to do one book in each format at a time, not counting library books. I figured a quirky cozy mystery would be a good choice for my next e-book. Now I'm not so sure. Why did I buy this? If I could go back in time, I'd tell the me of the past to pass this one by.

 

It's first person POV. So far the main character has told readers that her mentally ill father, who can't properly feed himself and who barely responds to her presence, has chosen to be homeless. He doesn't seem to me like he has the ability to choose to do much of anything. Also, her first response upon learning, via her psychic powers, that her cop boyfriend was cheating on her was to pull out his loaded gun and point it at his crotch. I get that she's mad, but holy crap.
