Psychic Cass Donovan must uncover the truth about long-buried secrets and recent murders to bring peace to a troubled spirit and bring justice to a flesh-and-blood killer . . . 

When the spirit of Ophelia Wilson turned to clairvoyant Cass Donovan for help, Cass was able to prove Ophelia’s innocence in the century-old murders of her family members—and solve a contemporary murder in the process. But Ophelia’s spirit has returned, this time angrily demanding that Cass expose the identity of whoever did kill her family. And then eerily, two descendants from the Wilson family tree are murdered, suggesting that Ophelia has the power to meddle in modern-day events to satisfy her rage. 

As Cass struggles to solve the two recent murders and unravel the sparse clues about murders from a hundred years ago, she and those around her begin to suffer Ophelia’s wrath—including an attempt on the life of one of Cass’s closest friends. Relying on all of her own psychic powers, Cass has to confront the spirit’s hunger for vengeance and track down a merciless killer before she becomes the next victim of both . . .

My Review:

With a Spirit of Vengeance is a wonderful seventh book in the Bay Island Psychic Mystery series. I am always happy to be on Bay Island with Cass, Bee, Stephanie, Tank, Luke, and Beast. The Bay Island Psychic Mysteries are a favorite series of mine. I love Lena Gregory’s stories, writing style, and the characters she’s created and nurtured.

The story is unique and entertaining. I was completely engaged from the very beginning. The resident spirit from the previous book, A Spirit Seeks Asylum, is back and she’s not happy. On top of Cass working on finding out who killed Ophelia Wilson’s family, descendants of Ophelia’s are murdered. Cass will need to work fast to identify the long-ago killer of Ophelia’s family, as well as the most recent killer.

I absolutely adore Cass, Bee, and Stephanie. Their dynamics create a friendship that is warm and emotional, and they have each other's backs - no matter what. 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.

My Rating:
