After her husband’s death, Bella Jordan decides that she and her son need a fresh start in Chicago; unfortunately, on their way there a storm strands them in the town of Lily Dale, NY. Lily Dale isn’t your average, ordinary town…it’s full of psychics and mediums, and its quirkiness appeals to Bella. When she’s asked to step in for the recently deceased local hotel owner, Leona, she readily agrees….temporarily. However, Fate has other plans for Bella. It turns out Leona was murdered, and Bella finds herself right in the thick of the investigation. With an appropriately quirky cast of characters, including a lovable cat who can disappear faster than Houdini, it seems Bella has her work cut out for her.
Wendy Corsi Staub’s writing sparkles and the book fairly crackles with suspense. Her characterizations are spot on and you are sucked in from page one. No surprise, considering the fact Corsi Staub is an award winning suspense author who frequently makes the NY Times Bestseller lists. If you’re looking for a different type of cozy, then this one’s for you! Definitely a TOP PICK! – Four and a half Stars – ROCCO LOTEMPIO
