A haunting vision reveals a ghostly grave in the latest Bay Island Psychic Mystery from the author of Occult and Battery.
Whoever said that dead men tell no tales has never met Cass Donnovan…
Cass has always relied on her abilities to guide her, but after communications with a ghost land her in the middle of a murder investigation, she has to wonder if her gifts are really more a curse.
Cass knows she is meant to help track down the killer–much to the chagrin of local law enforcement–when the apparition leads her to a dead body on the beach near her psychic shop, Mystical Musings. But the police are not the only ones who wish Cass would stick to reading palms. Someone is trying to scare her off, and it will take all her powers of premonition to catch the killer before Cass herself becomes the next victim…
Great, entertaining mystery by Lena Gregory! It’s been a while since I have read a cozy mystery, and Gregory reminded me of why it’s one of my favorite genres, with a great storyline and great characters.
Cass is settling in nicely on Bay Island. Her business is thriving. She has a playful, loving canine best friend, Beast. She has her two best friends, Stephanie and Bee. She is also enjoying her new relationship with Luke, even if they don’t get to see each other as much as they would like. Life is going good for her, but some darkness is lurking in the periphery, in the form of nightmares of a woman needing her help. Now, she is seeing the visions in the daytime while she is awake. She doesn’t know how to help her or what she wants. All she knows is that it’s frightening. When she realizes what the strange woman wants, she finds herself smack dab back in the middle of a murder mystery and in danger. It will be up to her and her friends to solve it before she risks losing her life.
Gregory has certainly created a delightful cast of characters. Cass is a woman who is very easy to relate too. She has had some disappointments in her life, yet she forges on, continuing to help others. Her psychic abilities made me love her even more. She never uses them selfishly, always trying to bring peace to her customers. Her relationship with Bee and Stephanie is just fantastic. The three are always there supporting each other, even when Cass is asking them to help to seances in the middle of the night. Her relationship with Luke is very realistic, taking their time getting to know each other slowly. I love the added light romance. My favorite character is Beast, maybe because I have two like him myself. I just love any writer who makes a dog a main character in and of themselves.
Gregory did a phenomenal job of creating a cozy mystery with several elements, a bit of romance and with paranormal aspects. Both of these blended flawlessly to create a great book with a fantastic setting! Can’t wait to return to Bay Island to catch up with all Cass and all the others.
Lena lives in a small town on the south shore of eastern Long Island with her husband and three children.
When she was growing up, she spent many lazy afternoons on the beach, in the yard, anywhere she could find to curl up with a good book. She loves reading as much now as she did then, but she now enjoys the added pleasure of creating her own stories.
