Whispers Beyond the Veil

A Change of Fortune Mystery, #1

I really love historical reads and this mystery was so good! It is very well written and I loved the characters. The story was pretty easy to follow, which made it even better. The author did an amazing job delving into the occult world and I can't wait for another book. The murder in this book does come a little late to the story, but all in all it was still very good. I think readers who love both the occult and history will enjoy this debut about a girl coming into her own while trying to deal with finding a killer!


Book Blurb for Whispers Beyond the Veil

First in a dazzling new historical mystery series featuring Ruby Proulx, a psychic with a questionable past who suddenly finds her future most uncertain...

Canada, 1898. The only life Ruby Proulx has ever known is that of a nomad, traveling across the country with her snake-oil salesman father. She dreams of taking root somewhere, someday, but, until she can, she makes her way by reading tarot cards. Yet she never imagined her own life would take such a turn…

After one of her father’s medical “miracles” goes deadly wrong, Ruby evades authorities by hiding in the seaside resort town of Old Orchard, Maine, where her estranged aunt, Honoria, owns the Hotel Belden, a unique residence that caters to Spiritualists—a place where Ruby should be safe as long as she can keep her dark secret hidden.

But Ruby’s plan begins to crumble after a psychic investigator checks into the hotel and senses Ruby is hiding more than she’s letting on. Now Ruby must do what she can to escape both his attention and Aunt Honoria’s insistence that she has a true gift, before she loses her precious new home and family forever…
