Book Summary

A murder mystery weekend becomes a little too real in the latest Bay Island Psychic Mystery from the author of Death at First Sight—
 
Cass Donovan uses her skills as a former psychiatrist to get away with pretending to be psychic, but she’s not about to let anyone get away with murder…
 
The outlook is not so good for Cass’s psychic shop, Mystical Musings. With winter winds discouraging tourists from riding the ferry from Long Island to Bay Island, Cass hopes to draw in more customers by hosting a murder mystery weekend, complete with a séance, in a supposedly haunted mansion.

But Cass begins to lose her spirit when her ex-husband shows up, along with his fiancée—Cass’s ex-best friend. Then, after one of the guests is found dead, a blizzard blows in, trapping everyone inside with a murderer. Now Cass must divine who did the deed before her reputation and her livelihood fade away.

About The Author

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

First of all, Cass is my kind of psychic- she uses her doctoral background to get her readings right. And you find out she has gotten plenty of her readings right, in this book. I love that Stephanie and Bee are back along with Beast.

What are you to do when you host a seance and it seems that the house you’re in comes alive, not in a good way? Well, if it was me I would have left, like Bee wanted to. Just like that Lena gets this reader hooked again. She brings Cass and crew back to life to play out their roles in my mind. The house in my mind is magnificent showing the good old days of shore living. It holds a mystery or two that will keep the reader engaged.

The entire book kept me on the edge of my seat ,and had me guessing with each new chapter. Lena gets readers off to a quick start, and keeps the pace lively throughout the entire book. Each appearing character gives the reader a chance to make a healthy suspect list with unique clues. My taste for a good and sweet mystery is fulfilled with this book! I look forward to many more!
