Book Summary

It doesn’t take a crystal ball to see that something’s not right on Bay Island…
Since she left her psychiatric practice in New York City to open up a psychic shop in her hometown on Bay Island, Cass Donovan has given her fair share of readings to conflicted customers. But what she sees in Ellie Callahan’s future doesn’t bode well.

When Ellie’s mother, Marge, publicly confronts Cass about the reading, the embarrassment makes her want to curl up and die. And when she later stumbles across Marge’s body—and is a suspect in her murder—Cass is suddenly the star of Bay Island’s rumor mill.

Cass is determined to prove her innocence and save Ellie from meeting the fate in her unfortunate vision. But even with the help of her friends Bee and Stephanie, Cass will have to channel some serious sleuthing instincts to find the real killer…

<h2><span class="wrap"><span class="inner">About The Author</span></span></h2>

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.

Book Review by Bree Herron

A black shadow crossed the vision Cass was calling. Next thing you know Cass is neck deep in a murder, only she didn’t commit it and she is going to call on her strength to solve it.  Welcome to the newest Cozy series “A Bay Island Psychic Mystery, home to some charming characters and nail biting mysteries.

A black shadow crossed her vision, and Cass felt the dread coming on.#Mystery #Giveaway Click To Tweet

I was so excited to receive this book, the cover alone made me want this book, but I also was eager to read about a psychic that wasn’t holding other-worldly crafts. I love any and all cozies with witches but it is refreshing to have a new series with special abilities.  Cass, Bee and Stephanie are a breath of fresh air. Cass is our main character, and she is stellar.  Cass has some dealings from the past that she is slowly facing in her new life on Bay Island. She is caring and realistic character, that you can envision in your mind from the start.

The book starts off on a fast pace, and is a quick page turner. Readers will love the charm, wit, and feelings that these characters show.
