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.

would he jam the shifter into gear, even though she could tell he badly wanted
to. The black Trans Am was his baby, always to be treated tenderly. Cass, on
the other hand, was a different story. Bee looked about ready to throttle her.
“Wouldn’t it have been easier to just tell me where we were going?”
Lawrence poked her head between the seats to stare at Cass. “Not that I want to
agree with Bee, but really, Cass, you could have just told him where to go.
Then maybe this maniac wouldn’t have nearly put us through the windshield.”

ground on the island, amid dried-up beach grass, trees long since devoid of
leaves, and garbage from whatever kids were brave—or stupid—enough to ignore
their parents’ warnings. Thick, grey clouds gathered overhead, lending credence
to the haunted stories Cass had heard since childhood.

Where are you going?”
Bee’s protests, Cass climbed from the car. She closed the door behind her,
effectively cutting off any further arguments. Bee happened to be deathly
afraid of ghosts. Not that he believed in them.
