Free-spirited Bridget Quinn is keenly aware that she has always been slightly off-center from her peers. She'd honed her skills in Palmistry, Tarot, and Astrology since the tender age of nine. Plagued by night terrors involving deceased pets she attended as a Veterinary Technician while applying to Vet School, she decides to pack her three black cats and move to St. Augustine, FL to open Lunatique, a New Age/Metaphysical store in the heart of the Historic District. Living in our nation's oldest, and notoriously haunted, city Bridget is unable to deny her newly discovered gift of clairvoyance. Her hopes of a quiet life of introspection are shattered as a spirit clamors for her assistance. When her attempts to help implicate her in the ghastly murders at Flagler College, Bridget finds herself caught in a web of mystery and mayhem. Her heart dangling between Nick Maddox, the compellingly attractive but rigorously skeptical police officer, and RIP Ryder, a witty and rascally hearse-driving ghost tour guide, Bridget endeavors to stop the madness as the body count rises.
I am not a fan of scary but was convinced to give this book a try. It reads like a grown up paranormal Nancy Drew mystery. The secondary characters are fun and our heroine is a spunky treat. I love how the author makes St. Augustine, FL a character in the story. A good read. I look forward to the next installment.
