About the Book:

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...

Lena Gregory's Bay Island Psychic Mysteries is a wonderful series with fun and exciting characters.

Cass Donnovan has really made Bay Island her home. She has a wonderful, thriving business, a unruly but protective dog, great friends, and what is the making of a sweet romance. Now, she just needs to get the nightmares to stop. Involving the ghost of a female, Cass not only sees things in her nightmares, but the ghost is manifesting itself to her. She knows the ghost is trying to tell her something, and when that something is revealed, Cass now finds herself immersed in yet another murder investigation.

I absolutely adore Cass, Bee, Stephanie, and Tank. Their dynamics create a friendship that is warm and emotional and they have each other's backs - no matter what. Even Bee and Tank are getting along a lot better than when we first met them in book 1. Cass is a very down-to-earth person. She's likable from the start. It is easy to connect to her, whether you believe in psychic abilities or not. Stephanie and Bee are wonderful sidekicks to Cass main character. They are supportive and comforting to Cass. I love how the author has developed Bee. He sounds like the perfectly imperfect best friend that everyone wishes they had to stand beside them. Stephanie is unusually somber in this installment and the author did a great job creating a different plot line for her and Tank. I really feel for both of them because my real-life situation is just theirs.

The story is unique and entertaining. I was completely engaged from the very beginning. As the story progresses, the author introduces more characters that make figuring out the murderer a little harder. For me, everyone was a suspect from a father, a out-of-towner, local citizens, and others who found themselved on Bay Island. As per usual Cass, the protagonist, does some pretty dumb things, but unlike other cozies I've read, she at least acknowledges the danger of her actions. She's not oblivious to the danger but her need to help the ghost who asks for her help is stronger than her common sense. Although, her antics aren't nearly as hair-brained in this book. Cass really is a great character who is written well, with a personality that is likable.

I certainly hope we readers get a lot more of Cass, Stephanie, Bee, and Tank. It would be ashamed to end the series here. I'm rooting for at least 3 more books - things are really starting to get good on Bay Island.
