But she is happily mistaken when her aunt Honoria embraces not only her but her skills with open arms. Her aunt is the proud owner of a hotel in Old Orchard a booming tourist town on the ocean. A hotel that caters to the more open minded clientale, psychics, mediums, astrologers are all available for any guests needs. And with this also come the cynical, an investigator looking to debunk people with such abilities. He soon sets his sight on Ruby and those will be his last sight.
Along with the murder investigation comes one of the only men in town Ruby fears, Officer Yancey a man that could dig out her skeletons and make her pay for them. As she strategically involves herself in the murder investigation to save her family's hotel she must also watch her every step not to be found out. With the investigation progressing another man is found dead and this all points toRuby. In the end she will truly know how far her long lost aunt will go to keep her safe.
I loved the story,I especially love stories centered around the paranormal, psychics, ghosts, hauntings and such. It was beautifully crafted, the setting, the plot, and all the modern women. I can't stand the damsel in distress or weak woman always looking for a man to rescue her or fix things. These women are figuring it out for themselves especially in an age where that was not welcomed at all. Looking forward to seeing Ruby in the next stage of her life in Old Orchard.
